The Week That Were: 9.8.12

This week’s soundtrack is colorful, but has a bit of a different taste to it: trust me, it makes total sense in the grand scheme of things.  Enjoy… language warning. There’s no denying it… one group of conference-mates had an incredibly difficult Saturday. Positioned for excellence, and featured in a number of nationally significant matchups, […]

We continue the journey across the nation to get you ready for kickoff in less than two weeks. Today, Gary weighs in on the newest incarnation of the Big 12 conference.

Meet The New Guy: Ohio State Hires Tom Herman

We should have listened to our great commentators… First, they told us how strong of a program Iowa State is. Then, they gave us the heads up that ISU’s offensive coordinator was someone to keep an eye on. Well, they were right, and Coach Meyer (still fun to type that!) agrees, today hiring Tom Herman […]

The Week That Were: 11.19.11

After yesterday’s slate of games, the soundtrack for this episode should be pretty obvious.  Onward! Ain’t chaos beautiful?  While the end result may be less than desirable, you’ve got to be amazed at the ways that each week is different, each week has the possibility for the unexpected and amazing.  And this week was proof […]

The Week That Were: 10.29.11

I’ll be honest… it’s been so great to relive the huge Buckeye win over Wisconsin, I’ve had to dig a bit to find motivation to even think about the other games from this week. However, my search for a soundtrack that would be appropriate for Halloween Weekend, I found this gem that helped me keep […]

The Week That Were- 9.17.11

Well, after a loss there really is only one choice for this week’s soundtrack… Just be thankful I didn’t go all Broadway on you. I know that there were exciting things on the field to talk about, but the big story brings us to… This week in EXPAND-A-PALOOZA: Well, well, well- Saturday awoke to the […]

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: 10.23.10

In the spirit of Homecoming, here’s this week’s musical selection. Congrats to Ohio State’s new royalty- I apologize if your reign is rudely interrupted. Columbus wasn’t the only college town named after Spanish explorers that was celebrating “Fleecing Forgetful Alumni Weekend” (so named by a friend who works in alumni relations- it’s amazing how the […]

More Know Your Neighbor: Nebraska

With the exciting news that the Big T1e1n has extended an offer to the University of Nebraska, I thought it would make sense to use my “connections” to give Buckeye fans a little bit of insight from the other side of this announcement. With that, here’s the second installation of “Ask A Husker” (be sure […]

Know Your Neighbor- Nebraska Edition

With the exciting news that the Big T1e1n has extended an offer to the University of Nebraska, I thought it would make sense to use my “connections” to give Buckeye fans a little bit of insight from the other side of this announcement. So, in the spirit of great internet memes, here’s the first installation […]

Iowa's biggest weakness

Jim Tressel and company does not need me to tell them what Iowa’s weaknesses are. They already know. But since I did the research, I’d better spread the knowledge, because who knows….maybe one of my readers has no idea what that weakness might be. It’s their run defense. Iowa is not capable of slowing down […]
