Silver Bullet Points Brushes Up

We’re in post-draft funk here at SBP… also brought on by recent trips to the orthodontist. Wheee.  That also explains why our soundtrack is one of Steve Martin’s lesser known works… his new stuff is much different. Buckeye 411 Game Time! No, we’re not at kickoff yet… dangit.  But today we found out that the […]

Silver Bullet Points Turns To The Skies

I apologize. I googled “songs about Iowa” and this came up.  Yeah, it’s pretty much what you’d expect. Here’s a palate cleanser… also from Iowa. Buckeye 411 Injury Update- Tommy Schutt is indeed back in the rotation, and Jordan Hall is healthy enough to see time on special teams.  One interesting note from Wednesday Afternoon- […]

Silver Bullet Points Can Feel It

Well, there won’t be a Rumble later today; Jason’s recovering from the Orion festival (he snuck across the boarder to TSUN, and hopes to come back with his IQ intact and his hearing decimated). As such, your soundtrack for today is my favorite Metallica song from back in the day. Also, we’re launching a new […]

Silver Bullet Points Ain't Goin' Anywhere

We’re one week away from National Letter Of Intent Day, and the excitement (and chaos) is building.  We’ll talk a bit this week about the idea of “verbals” and visits, but let’s dig through the news bucket a bit first, shall we? Oh, and Mark Titus’ favorite band brings us our musical inspiration for the […]

Iowa post-game comment

A couple of things before we get started. I want to give a h/t to Tim, as well as Joe and Eric, who put together the post-game recaps in such short order. Nice job, guys. Next, after the Iowa game, I am so glad that I don’t have BTN on our base cable package. I […]

tBBC All-Time Tourney Semi Finals: #2 2007 vs. #3 1992

To the victor go the spoils, and in this case, the winner of this mythical match up gets to face the Jerry Lucas led squad of 1960. When you look at the success of teams in Ohio State history we have covered every one of them in depth in this tournament. We have yet to […]

Buckeyes 2007 Final Four Run – One to Remember

With New Orleans and the Buckeyes Final Four appearance rapidly approaching, I thought it would be a great time to re-visit Ohio State’s last Final Four appearance in 2007. The 2007 team was young but their 35-4 record, topped off with a National Title game appearance, showed that you don’t always have to have experience […]

Silver Bullet Points Hunts Bearcats

In the calm before the storm… it’s midweek mayhem. The rest of the week will be dedicated to hoops, particularly the matchup with folks from Cincy, but I thought I’d drop a little mascot knowledge on you. While that thing above may technically be a “bearcat”, I’m still convinced that the official team name should […]

Buckeye Basketball Breakdown: Northwestern

After the Northwestern game concluded, there was one inescapable thought in my mind – this was a very good win for us. I saw it echoed among several other sportswriters on

tBBC All-Time Tourney #2 2007 vs. #7 2010

Joe D and WVaBuckeye bring you another round of the tBBC All-Time Tourney! Today pits Evan Turner and the 2010 Buckeyes versus the Diaper Dandy 2007 squad featuring Greg Oden and Mike Conley. Enjoy!  As the seeding’s were finished and Joe and I prepared to do our match up research, this game became the most […]

Ohio State All Time Basketball Tournament

I began a journey to do a comparison of the two greatest teams in Ohio State Basketball history. At first glance it seemed a simple task to pick two teams and write a nice article about who was better at a given skill. The more I read about teams in Buckeye lore, the more I […]

Name association: "Ohio State, basketball, ________"

With the drafting of Jon Diebler by the Portland Trailblazers in last Thursday’s NBA Draft, the Buckeyes added one more of their products to the professional ranks.  Diebler joins former Buckeye Greg Oden on Portland’s roster, although it remains to be seen if the two will ever fulfill the opportunity to play together that was […]

Freshmen phenoms, then and now

Fans of Ohio State basketball have had a lot to cheer about since the arrival of Thad Matta in 2004.  Matta’s passionate coaching coupled with his ability to recruit top players has created a program that puts a superb team on the court year in and year out.  If you’re truly going to be a […]

Where are they now?

With basketball season just around the corner, and a new team about to be put on display, some comparisons will inevitably be made to teams of the past, and particularly to teams of recent years.  Indeed, the teams we’ve had during Thad’s tenure at Ohio State have involved some serious talent, and it will be […]

Speaking of Basketball

Our favorite 7 foot former Buckeye (sorry, Granville) is doing some “man on the street” videos in Portland. Check out the latest, talking about his connections with the Ohio State faithful in the Rose City NBA.com- On the Go with G.O.
