No so long after announcing his return to the New England Patriots in a two-year extension deal that lands him a million-plus each year Nate Ebner will be missing training camp this summer as he heads to Brazil as a member of the USA Rugby Team. Bill Belichick, Ebner recalls, was welcoming of his pursuit […]

tBBC Preview: Orange Bowl – Ohio State vs Clemson

  Ohio State (12-1, 8-1, B1G) vs Clemson (10-2, 8-1, ACC)  January 3rd, 2014: 8:30 PM EST ESPN Well, well, the Buckeyes get to head south for their bowl game rather than west.  Oh well, it wasn’t our first preference, but let’s go Orange Bowling. The bowl game that we know as the Orange Bowl […]

Happy Festivus From tBBC

It’s pretty great to be a Buckeye fan… we’re in the midst of a great two year run in football and multiple years of success in men’s basketball- our teams are major news story, and people even pay attention to what the former University president says and does. That being said… there’s still some grievances […]

tBBC OSU HOF: John Cooper

For this HOF Article, we revisit one I did in May of last year. One thing is for sure when you take over as the head coach at THE Ohio State University, you better know what it means to be an Ohio person. A lot of people believe Coach John Cooper got the top post at Ohio […]

Monday Musings: Birthday Edition

Another Monday, another week. Grab your coffee and let’s get right to it. Before we begin, I want to wish a (some posthumously)  happy birthday to: Ralph Abernathy (civil rights) Vannevar Bush (analog computer, Manhattan Project) Helmuth JG von Moltke (Nazi resistance) Rupert Murdoch (media mogul) Lawrence Welk (band leader) Shawn Springs (Buckeye) I’m sure there are others, but […]

Improving the Game: College Football Rules Changes That I Would Like To See

Last week I took a look at the proposed rule changes for the 2013 college football season.  As those of you who read the article can probably recall, I wasn’t a fan of many of the major changes that were proposed.  That doesn’t mean that I think the rules of college football are perfect; while […]

Ohio State Women's Football Clinic Draws a Crowd

In the past few months we’ve seen a number of examples of the OSU coaching staff reaching out to Buckeye fans in a number of ways. Most impressively was the inclusion of the students in the spring practices, and the active and exciting demonstration of drills with students. It seems to be hallmark of this […]

The Ohio State Roster and Stefon Diggs

Just yesterday the official Ohio State Athletics website posted an updated depth chart for the Buckeyes.  There were some big changes, though many were fully expected.  Of particular note were the losses of Jamaal Berry (cut for off-field issues) and David Durham (transfer to Pittsburgh). But the question that still lingers is the one of […]

Keys to Victory: Nebraska

Do I think the Buckeyes can win on Saturday night? Yes, I always think the Buckeyes can win. What changes for me is how likely I think that outcome will be. For most games, my level of confidence in a Buckeye victory is very high. This week… not so much. The reason for my extreme […]

Preview: Ohio State vs. Eastern Michigan

Eastern Michigan is bad, really bad. So bad that it is hard to find a place to start describing their ineptitude at playing the game of football. Since I like to focus primarily on Ohio State in these previews, and as readers of this blog, you presumably care primarily about the Buckeyes, I will keep […]

What do you want to see on Saturday? EMU

The game on Saturday will be a little more than a scrimmage for the Buckeyes as they prepare for the Big Ten schedule. It is not the most exciting game for fans, but if anything, the low quality of the opponent increases the expectations. Here are some things that we want to see from the […]

Quick Hits: NFL Draft, Spring Game Draft, NBA Playoffs

The NFL Draft is tonight at 7:30 ET on ESPN/NFL Network. ElevenWarriors has a look at the Buckeyes hoping to hear their names called over the next three days. A lot of Browns fans seem to want Eric Berry at 7 and Colt McCoy in the 2nd round, that would be just fine with me. […]

Spring Games (Huh!), What Are They Good For?

Absolutely nothing? Well, that depends on what you are looking for. If you are a desperate fan base whose team hasn’t gone to a bowl game in two years, you might be inclined to look for glimmers of hope in the spring game. “Did you see how well [insert name] performed? We are going to […]

Way Too Early Look: Defensive Line (updated)

Last season the defensive line was the anchor of the team, and one of the best (if not the best) units in the entire country. In 2010, the line will look to continue the dominance they established in 2009, but will be missing a few key players as well as a lot of quality depth. […]
