The Week That Were: 9.27.14

Welcome to another Monday, Buckeye buckaroos. After a glorious vanquishing of the southwestern invaders, it would be understanding that you might have missed out on the weekend’s other college pigskin storylines… but fear not! I’ve got you covered, and even have a musical accompaniment inspired by our first noteworthy item! Yesterday was one of those […]

The Week That Were: 11.16.13

In a week full of surprises, this is a pretty good soundtrack for your Monday morning reading. Sometimes life gives you some unexpected gifts.  You’re set up on a date to be a wingman for a friend who’s girl has a cousin in town, and you end up in an amazing marriage together. You open […]

Ohio State Suffers First Loss of Season 53-49 to Georgia

After getting off to a 3-0 start, the Ohio State women’s basketball team faced its toughest test on the season with a trip to #22 Georgia.  The Bulldogs made the Elite Eight last season and are replacing several starters but still are a tough team that has become NCAA tournament regulars.  Injuries, suspensions, graduations, and […]

The Week That Were: 10.19.13

Happy Monday- if you’re not suspended from work for doing your job the way it’s supposed to be done, then you’ll probably enjoy today’s soundtrack. You’ve got two choices for this week’s narrative as you talk college sports around the old coffeemaker at the office this morning. Option one: “Wow, 5 top 25 SEC teams […]

The Week That Were: 10.5.13

Sooo… big victory, at night, outside of Chicago, in a hostile environment, behind an old favorite. Yup, there’s really only one choice for the soundtrack for our look back at college football’s big weekend. As the season progresses, there will be a number of weekends that provide “clarity” in the national rankings scene… and this […]

The Week That Were: 9.7.13

Given the rain delay in the BYU /UT game this week and the deluge of rushing that befell the Longhorns after kickoff, there’s only one option for this week’s soundtrack. See, this is why there should be no polls before the first weekend in October. Once again, we see a number of teams that got […]

The Week That Were: 8.31.13

For those unfamiliar with this feature, consider it your cheat sheet for the conversations around the grill on Labor Day. As always, these come with a melodic interlude to play gently in the background during your perusal… because you’re that important to me. It was the best of times, it was the… well… best of […]

The Day That Were- B1G Style

Slight variation in schedule… think of this as TWTW meets Wednesday’s regular SBP.  Here’s the tunes behind the guy behind the guy. 2013 started almost the same way that every other year has started since I can remember… with a slate of B1G Ten games, highlighting how many people who live in the midwest want […]

tBBC Preview: Capital One Bowl- Georgia vs. Nebraska

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never blah blah blah… it’s the second B1G/SEC tilt of the day, and should be airing right about the time that you find your keys in the bottom of the guacamole. Georgia (11-2, 7-2 SEC) vs. Nebraska (10-3, 7-2 B1G) January 1, 2013 1:00 PM ET ESPN The History: […]

The Week That Were: 12.1.12

Getting ready for the next phase of college fandom, that wonderful world filled with gifts of college hoops and bowl catastophies. As such, here’s the soundtrack for this week’s look back. Robert Frost once said, “Nothing Gold can stay”; and so, another leaf turns and this college football season comes to a close. Before we […]

The Week That Were: 10.27.12

In spite of the huge win in Happy Valley on Saturday, I’m feeling a bit of the blues are in order for this week’s recap. So, enjoy some Collins, Cray, and Copeland. It’d be easy to say that this week was “spook-tacular”, and “scary” for a lot of top teams, but that would be way […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 6

I have decided to remove whether I got the score right or not and am going straight up with my picks. I will continue to include a guess of the score in most cases but it will just be a guide! The reason for this is the fact that I was an amazing five and […]

The Week That Were: 9.29.12

In a week that was seen as a “meh” on the national scene, it was nonetheless a great Saturday for football.  Here’s today’s soundtrack, inspired by Coach Meyer’s comments following the clash with Michigan State. Well, it may have been the weekend before October, but it certainly was another chance for folks to show off […]

tBBC Conference Cavalcade: SEC

Continuing our look around the nation, Tim takes a quick look at the winner of the last eleventy BCS championships. If you’re a fan of one of these programs, be sure to have someone read this for you (note: does not apply to Vanderbilt). How does the conference fall in the national rankings? How likely […]

The Week That Were: "Championship" Week

For the last TWTW of the season, I was digging deep for musical inspiration. While I’ve been playing the new Black Keys album non-stop, I wanted to find something that encapsulated the anticipation and pleading that so many are involved in these day- all looking toward a special event at the first of the year.  […]
