Wednesday Night Rumble: Shocking!

I’m still basking in the glow of 12-0. And more importantly, I continue to cherish the win over Michigan and think about it every day. I didn’t realize how much the 2011 game impacted me until this week. To see them lose to TTUN after everything that happened to them in 2011, while playing maybe […]

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Silver Bullet Points

Interesting Tuesday in college sports, to say the least. We’ll get to all the movers and shakers, but first a little traveling music. Buckeye 411 Out In The Cold- Monday’s Heisman announcement that Braxton Miller would not be getting an invite to the Downtown Athletic Club in New York spurred a mixed bag of emotions […]

The Week That Were- 11.24.12

As you’re reading this, I’m somewhere above you making the phrase “flyover states” a reality, and heading back to the left coast. As such, this week’s review will be a bit shorter than previous ones, but know that I’ve only got one song on my mind as I write it And now, we know the […]

The Week That Were: 11.10.12

Oh, college football… How I love you!! Well, that happened. While a lot of people were saying that Alabama was ripe for a loss against a Texas A&M team that’s been playing really well over the past few weeks, most of this felt like lip service. You know, the kind of things that ESPN makes […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Some R&R

It’s the bye week, and there’s only one song for the occasion. Well, two… something for everyone. Buckeye 411  Injury Update- Tuesday, Coach Meyer said that it was better than 50/50 for Etienne Sabino to return for the Wisconsin game, something that will add a much needed boost to the Ohio State linebacker corps. No […]

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 […]

Number nine… number nine…

Let’s talk legacy, shall we?  You think this year’s #9 has anything to live up to? Not only is he at the university where his dad works, playing on the field where his dad won two Heisman Trophies (only one with two- suck it, Tebow!), when he looks at his number he sees 4+5. Yeah, […]

Heisman-winning quarterback days left!

There isn’t a better choice than Mr. Troy Smith to take us into the final 10 days of the countdown.  We haven’t seen Troy yet on the Top 25 Buckeyes of the Decade list, but you know he’s got to be on there. Where will he finish in the ranking?  There are only a few […]

The USC saga continues

ESPiN is reporting that USC has hired a new Athletic Director to replace embattled veteran Mike Garrett.  Garrett, fairly or unfairly viewed as responsible for USC’s disasters off the Football Gridiron has been let go in place of former Trojan’s Quarterback Pat Haden, who also served with NBC covering Notre Dame Football.  Talk about your […]

The Day of Reckoning is Nigh

Hang on… this one needs a soundtrack: According to the good folks over at ESPN, Southern Cal’s football team has received a two year ban from postseason play, in addition to scholarship reductions and forfeiting wins from at least their 2004 season. According to the LA Times, the Trojans will lose 20 scholarships in football, […]

The Week That Were: 9.26.09

Finishing what Jeff started, as we do every week. Here’s this week’s soundtrack/music to piss off the people in the cubicle next to you. Every season, there’s one or two weeks that just screw up everything. From the Vegas lines, to the “pundit’s choices”, to alumni plans for Bowl Game Tailgating, and even the coaching […]

Troy Smith is way, way better than you

We had a couple of interesting pieces to publish today, so the countdown had to wait until the street lights went on….thanks for your patience! There’s only ten days left until the Ohio State Buckeyes take the field for the opening game of the 2009 season.  Now is the time that you begin to literally […]

Les Horvath has come back from the dead to kick your ass

The early days of Ohio State football are littered with names that will always be legendary around Columbus, Ohio. Chic Harley. Francis Schmidt. Paul Brown. Bill Willis. Les Horvath. Horvath won the Heisman Trophy for Ohio State in 1944, the first one ever won by a Buckeye. Two years earlier, OSU won a National Championship […]
