No […]

Wednesday's Rumble: Now It's Real

I wonder what it’s like to play the favorite at home four straight weeks against teams you’re expected to not only beat but beat handily? Does that put pressure on a  young football team learning a new system and at some point make them begin to feel confidently complacent yet nervously unsure at the same […]

Monday Morning Commentary – Media Access

And Your 2012 Ohio State Captains Are…

… John Simon, Zach Boren, Etienne Sabino, Garrett Goebel, and Jordan Hall After a 2011 season of “rotating captains” and other nonsense, coupled with a spring and fall camp that focused on competition and excellence, it’s great to see that the Buckeyes have chosen five of their team who have emerged as leaders for this […]

B1G Media Days, FNL and Odds and Ends

The Big Ten has not been all glitz and glamour like the SEC was, but then again the B1G is about blue-collar workers taking care of our favorite sport bar none. Even with this blue-collar attitude setting the stage, yesterday was an interesting one at the luncheon kick-off to say the least. Of course, there […]

Silver Bullet Points Locked And Loaded

  It’s finally here… the first SBP of the 2011 season. No more preseason talk, no more countdowns- it’s time to squeeze the trigger. Let’s do this.

Silver Bullets Reloaded: Linebackers

  After reviewing the defensive line yesterday, we move next to the linebackers. A position that has always been solid for the Silver Bullets regardless of graduations, replacing two starters from 2010 should not prevent this year’s group from being solid to spectacular once again. The starting group of three has been set with little […]

Spring Game: Players to Watch on Defense

  The Buckeyes have to reload on defense more in 2011 than any year since 2006. If you remember back, the 2006 defense had to replace all time great A.J. Hawk amongst many others. The task was daunting, but players like James Laurinaitis and Malcolm Jenkins quickly emerged as the next great Buckeye defenders. A […]
