(Thad appreciates the perspective) The B1G basketball season is heating up. And if Tuesday’s win over Northwestern is any indication, so are the Ohio State Buckeyes. After a dismal 8-5 pre-conference performance that included losses to UT-Arlington and Louisiana Tech and one high-profile win over Kentucky – which is looking less impressive each time Kentucky plays – […]
Last month the Ohio State women’s basketball team entered Assembly Hall and destroyed Indiana 103-49. Today the Hoosiers were the road team, looking for some revenge to help turn around what has become an increasingly disappointing season while the Buckeyes were looking to continue to hang onto a top four spot in the Big Ten. […]
It shouldn’t of been close. The Ohio State Buckeyes lacked focus, heart and execution for most of the second half, yet kept it close in the final four minutes in a 69-66 loss to the Hoosiers, which puts them at 2-2 in the B1G Conference With the win, Indiana moves to 11-2 against ranked opponents […]
Coach Meyer had a reason to be frustrated last Saturday- the Buckeye defense had served up a heap of stuffing to Indiana’s run game when the flag fluttered to the ground… Patrick: After watching several replays, this is straight a blown call. Horse collar rules states “inside the shoulder pads” and clearly Washington has a […]
The bad weather and a not highly rated opponent may have kept many people away from Ohio Stadium on Saturday but it takes a lot more than that to keep the Ohio State University Marching Band from putting on a great show. Icy roads may have resulted in emptier than normal stands during pregame but […]

The Buckeyes started slow but found their way… here are great photos from our staff and friends who braved the ice and saw Ohio State win its third straight divisional title.
Now this is a legitimate trap game. Big win on the road last week against a tough, ranked opponent and The Game looming next week. Ohio State can’t lose focus. Can’t afford a 7 or even a 10-point win. Need to kick Indiana back to Bloomington with authority. Need to put up 50 or 60 […]
I rolled the dice and crapped out. I’m waving the white flag. I’m giving my concession speech. There is no way I can defend my Pick ‘Em title. Last week pretty much did me in. I took Indiana over Penn State, whoops. Purdue over Wisconsin, oops. Northwestern over Michigan, yikes. I did get Minnesota over […]
We’re approaching the end of October, and the weather has started to turn… if you haven’t already raided your area punkin’ patch, now’s the time to take care of that… oh, and any German festivities that might tickle your fancy. Let’s start this week with the big “upset”, where West Virginia hosted and halted the […]
Welcome back from the “off week”… hope you got your to-do list whittled down and all the boxes checked. This would have been a great weekend for a wedding, FWIW. To celebrate a B1G weekend, here’s your soundtrack for Monday. Bee One Gee!! Bee One Gee!!! Oh wait. ESPN’s “power poll” includes only SEC teams, […]
OK, this is getting serious now. After a horrible week of picking by yours truly I find myself three games behind. I know it’s early. Stay positive. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I […]
Part two of our conference preview looks at the “group of death” and a likely conference title game: 2014 EAST DIVISION PREVIEW Many feel the east will be a battle of 2 teams and the winner of the November 8th battle in East Lansing between Ohio State and Michigan State can go ahead and make […]
Well, we’ve grown yet again. Not only did we add Mike to the team, but Joe and Scott are both newly christened fathers! Congrats, and we hope that you survive all of the smelly diapers and sleep deprivation. That goes for you also, Scott and Joe. Here’s today’s musical kickstart, dedicated to our new dads, […]

The Buckeyes are taking a trip to Bloomington for their only matchup with the Indiana Hoosiers. The game is set to tip at 4pm Eastern Time on CBS. Come get your Tom Crean hate on with us as we chat through the game! Go Bucks!
After a poor shooting performance in a disappointing loss to rival Michigan, the exciting promise of the Ohio State women’s basketball team’s Big Ten opening upset of Purdue was highly muted. With the Buckeyes heading to Bloomington to face a 22nd ranked Indiana team that entered the game 14-0, things didn’t look terribly promising for […]
“Michigan State is Ohio State’s new rival.” This theme began around 11:30pm Tuesday night. To be fair, rumblings of this new theme began long before the Spartans defeated the Buckeyes in overtime at the Breslin Center, but they began to emerge heavily after the scarlet and gray’s 72-68 defeat. I reject this thought immediately. Michigan […]
The Buckeyes took care of business Saturday against Indiana. Let’s see if our staff took care of their business: Ken An improved pass defense – Indiana leads B1G in passing offense (327 YPG). We need to keep this in the mid 200’s. 320 yards, but they did throw it 53 times! Roll Hyde – Indiana allows […]
Celebrating a great senior day, and getting ready for The Game… but this was too good not to post ASAP.
