The Week That Were: 9.10.11

This week’s journey back through the world of college sports is a bit more subdued than usual- due, in part, to the lack of “marquee” games, but mostly due to perspective. There are lots of things in life that are important… and college sports are among them. But today and yesterday and this past week, […]

The Week That Were: 9.2.11

Welcome back to tBBC’s weekly wrapup- random thoughts, snarky observations, random hyperlinks, and occasionally intelligent insight from the weekend in college football.  As always, we aspire to bring you the best soundtracks to help you enjoy the words and pictures… so here we go– thanks to

Picks of the Weak: 2011 Week One

The turning of the leaves, the smell of fresh grilled dogs, the crack of a cold beer, and the blinding of the college football fans’ eyes by the uniforms so beloved by the players of one of the best sports in the world. Florescent shoes, designs within designs, and 4 different helmets per team. College […]

Silver Bullet Points Shows You What You Missed

Note: As I was typing this, news broke of the Japanese earthquake. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people in the entire Pacific rim… give a bit of perspective about what might be important in life. Can’t blame Buckeye fans for being a little out of the loop regarding other news in the […]

The Week That Were: 11.27.10

Here’s the soundtrack for this week’s journey through the recent past. It’s from one of my favorite artists, and the greatest Thanksgiving movie ever ANDIWILLFIGHTYOUIFYOUDISAGREE. Ahem. Although I usually don’t take requests, I almost made an exception for Coach Rodriguez. What a great week of football- three days worth of collegiate goodness, interspersed with some […]

The Week That Were: 11.13.10

Time once again to take a look back at all the fancy doin’s in the realm of college football.  This week’s theme music reminds you to not call it a comeback… Some sad news to end the weekend: Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Southern Miss players who were shot last night following […]

The Week That Were: 10.30.10

Happy Halloween! As tempting as it is for me to throw a little Western History at you with today’s musical accompaniment, let’s go with something a little more Disney: Following up on our Protestant Reformation reference, let’s jump in with the  goings on over at Ntre Ame. Remember when beating Notre Dame was a significant […]

The Week That Were: 10.02.10

From the “He started it!” files- This week, we join our friends at 11W in celebrating Oktoberfest and all it’s splendor. So, break out the lederhosen, get your sauerkraut all warmed up, and find grandma’s recipe for schnitzel… This weekend looked to be the best thus far in terms of quality matchups, but only a […]

The Week That Were: 9.25.10

This week’s commentary is brought to you by my inner grumpy old man: One comment on Eastern Michigan, since all we do is talk Buckeyes here. Throughout the game I was having Dennis Green “They are who we thought they were” flashbacks, although not in ways that were complementary. Ok, let’s get our weekly dose […]

Silver Bullet Points- Reloaded

Like the annual haircut (whether needed or not), a new “look” makes a world of difference, no? Since all of the cool kids were getting new school clothes, we thought in only appropriate to join in on the blog couture arms race. Big thanks to Chad of Digital:Construct, an OSU alum who was great to […]

The Week That Were- 9.11.10

Once again, it’s time for a quick tour de farce around the week in college football. You know, in case you don’t have ESPN and this is the only website you read (as it should be). Today’s musical accompaniment: This amazing cover. Good luck getting it out of your head during the TPS meeting. James […]

“Agentpalooza” worse than originally believed?

Many of you have probably run into discussions of “Agentpalooza”, “Agentgate” or “Agent Orange” as 11W prefers to think of it.  For those that haven’t, the NCAA uncovered activities of players from Alabama, UNC, Georgia and South Carolina that suggested they had made illicit contact with sports agents.  The premise is that an agent, or […]

Oh, how the mighty have fallen

Here at The BBC, we take great pleasure in mocking Michigan fans. For longer than I care to remember, they had the upper hand on us, having won 10 out of 13 games over Ohio State (thank you, John Cooper)…..and they were arrogant about it. In my world, payback’s a bitch. So I have no […]

If you can read this, you're not from an SEC state

UPDATE – Please read this post c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y…it discusses the educational systems of each state, and how well the states educate (or don’t educate) their young minds.  It has deep meaning that could possibly explain the stupid, inbred minds which are unable to comprehend simple matters (in other words, southerners).  If you are a fan of […]

Why Ohio State will win the Fiesta Bowl

OK, so we’ve all seen the “teh Big Ten suuuucks” comments all over the place, and we know that nobody outside of this glorious state isn’t giving the Buckeyes a chance in hell tomorrow night.  But let’s take a step back from the bash-fest and discuss what I think will happen in Arizona. Ohio State […]

It’s officially Michigan Week

Bring it on, bitches! Ohio State, fresh off a 30-20 win at Illinois, now gets to focus on That Team Up North without looking past anybody. The Buckeyes return home for their final regular season game at 9-2, while TTUN comes to Columbus at 3-8. Today’s game was rather anti-climactic, but any fan of the […]

Good reading….

I’m not one to get too excited over losing two #1 votes to WVA. We are a solid #1 and the only way we can lose that is to lose a game. With that in mind, I’m not going to attack the two people who have voted WVA #1 in the AP poll. But you […]
