The Football Season is finally upon us. This coming weekend (Saturday the 3rd) our Buckeyes begin the 2016 Season with an opening game against the Bowling Green Falcons. The excitement is in the air. For us Scarlet and Gray junkies – this is a tremendous time of the year. With this precious reminder it is […]
Okay – all of you OSU Football know-it-alls the moment is upon you. The challenge I lay before you is twenty questions reference The Ohio State University and their storied football program. The questions I chose arguably could have been better – even worse. But the questions remain. Just how good are you? The answers […]
A few of us were hanging around the (virtual) water cooler, when Joe asked; “If you were a coach, who would you want as your running back? Archie? Eddie? Ezekiel? That’s a good question. Let’s take a look at how these gentlemen did at Ohio State, and go from there. We’ll look at some stats, […]
Ohio State football has had a rich history filled with some of the most talented athletes to play the game of football. This week, we’re counting down the Top 5 running backs in Ohio State history. Here’s No. 2 — Eddie George.
With our lead story today being what it is, of course there’ll be the obvious tie-ins for the soundtrack of today’s SBP. If 70’s rock ain’t your thing… here’s some 80’s pop and some country instead. Buckeye 411 Pucker Up- Oh man, oh man, oh man… Kenny G is coming to LA! Sure it’s a […]
You’re either reading this from home on a “ice day”, or from work after having dug yourself out of yet another mid-week snow storm. Stupid freaking groundhog… At any rate, here’s today’s soundtrack… for reasons that will hopefully soon be evident. Buckeye 411 Thank You, CB2- Sad news this week for Buckeye Senior and site […]
Before we even get started… To the football… The Buckeyes wrapped up another win on Saturday at Ohio Stadium against San Diego State to run their nations best streak to 14 games and 2-0 on the 2013 season. However, despite the relative ease on the scoreboard it was not without some tense moments and left […]
In today’s edition, we celebrate number 53, specifically Ohio State’s thrilling 28-25 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions in Beaver Stadium on October 7th, 1995. Ohio State had some late game heroics the previous week to beat Lou Holtz’s Notre Dame team. Late in the 4th quarter, the Buckeyes trailed 25-21. At this point, […]
With 71 days left until the season, it’s time to celebrate a 71 point game. I wonder which we should choose… Well duh. By the 1980’s Ohio State and Notre Dame, two of the best historical football programs in the country, had only faced off twice in history. Both of those games, played in 1935 […]
Interesting Tuesday in college sports, to say the least. We’ll get to all the movers and shakers, but first a little traveling music. Buckeye 411 Out In The Cold- Monday’s Heisman announcement that Braxton Miller would not be getting an invite to the Downtown Athletic Club in New York spurred a mixed bag of emotions […]
As usual, friend of tBBC Josh Winslow was in The Horseshoe Saturday night to bring us some outstanding photos of the game. Here are some of our favorites, and make sure to check out the rest at his site. Click here for many more pictures from the game.
Tuesday’s update from the Ohio State press conference and the rest of college football news… Buckeye 411 Getting Deep- Interesting notes from the depth chart this week: Boom is #1 with Hall/Hyde behind him. Miller is QB1, with Guiton OR Bauserman, although Fickell said that Kenny G has been getting more of the snaps in […]
A quick update of sorts: Sorry for the sketchy coverage over the past few days; we’re having an ongoing debate with the owners of the intertubes. Actually, we’ve got a couple of big things we’re working on that should make your Buckeye experience a lot more enjoyable. Thanks for being patient with us… Here’s the […]
Couple of “in house” notes today- If you haven’t, check out the work the Jim has done with his recruiting pages for 2011 and 2012 up on our main menu bar. It’s a fantastic look at both the commitments and targets for the upcoming classes, and connects you with the Buckeye Planet Recruiting Team’s thoughts […]
27 days left until kickoff:
Two days before kickoff. 48 hours. Are you ready? In keeping with the tradition of our countdown format, we bring you a player who has worn #2 for the Buckeyes. But Jeebus, who to pick???? Oh, the hell with it…..let’s just do a series of our #2 legends! Part 3 belongs to a guy from […]
Eddie George. #27. Do I need to say anything else?
Raymont Harris graduated from the Ohio State University in the Top 5 of all-time Buckeye running backs. His 2,649 yards were mostly from bowling over defenders, and generally proving the cliche’ about “running downhill”. Since his departure from Columbus, five more backs have since passed him on the all-time yardage list (Eddie George, Pepe Pearson, […]
Nearly three years ago, I began this blog for multiple reasons, all of which had to do with my love of Ohio state football. One of those reasons, as I stated in my inaugural post, was a quarterback from the 50’s named John Borton. In the mid-to-late 80s, I became friends with a wonderful person […]
This morning, our old friends at Eleven Warriors published a brilliant piece on John Cooper and his recent induction in the College Football Hall Of Fame. Of course, you can’t write a Cooper-based piece with using the numbers 2, 10, and 1. 11W did that. Sprinkled around the article is a list of Coop’s accomplishments, […]
