Passing Along Some Silver Bullet Points

It’s not summer yet, no matter how many days of 90+ degree weather that we have in Los Angeles… but the summer blockbuster season is upon us. With that in mind, let’s revisit an SBP favorite for this week’s soundtrack. Buckeye 411 Brick Wall Not Included- which is too bad, because you’re going to want […]

Silver Bullet Points Is A Dead Giveaway

While the details are still coming out, I can’t stop thinking about how amazing the situation in Cleveland was yesterday. We need more folks like Charles Ramsey who would be willing to get involved when it’s easier to just mind their own business. Only one soundtrack possibility today, then. Buckeye 411 Mmmmm… Pancakes. Ken broke […]

Monday Musings

Here we are, another week. Grab your coffee and let’s get right to it. Football A bit of a slow week, but not entirely dormant for Buckeye fans. Obviously, I’m referring to Jim Bollman being hired as OC by Michigan State after a quite brief stint as offensive line coach at Purdue. Evidently, Jim thought […]

Counting The Cost With Silver Bullet Points

It’s a relatively quiet week for Ohio State sports (*knocks on wood*); coaches are recruiting, hoops is preparing for an attempt to sweep That State Up North, and all the students are above average.  So, let’s dig around the ol’ interwebs and see what we can find to chat about today, shall we? Oh, and […]

Thursday Night Rumble: PERFECT

Vince Lombardi used to tell his teams that they would strive for perfection while knowing full well they’d never reach it. However, he knew that somewhere along the way in the pursuit of perfection they would end up being pretty good. By defeating (we can say the M word again) Michigan on Saturday, the Buckeyes […]

Shots from the Shoe – The Game

What a long and full day of excitement. Nothing will ever replace or beat my experiences in 2002(I don’t think), but this came very close to being as enjoyble. There was so much happening after THE Game in 2002 that really the best part that I remember is being on the field with 100,000 screaming […]

A Moment with Jim Tressel

From Cleveland’s WKYC… Strange to see him in this new gig, but good to hear that voice again. “And so forth…” count? Zero.

No Debating Silver Bullet Points

If you think the “Final Verdict” segments of College Gameday are amazing places for rhetoric and logic, you’re probably excited for the beginning of the Presidential Debates tonight.  Me? I’d rather argue about college sports… compared to politics, the BCS makes sense. Buckeye 411 Clothing, Part One- Never ones to miss the obvious, the Athletic […]

The Start of Something Special

One of the first things I was taught in journalism school was you must have the ability to be fair and unbiased. Objectivity is key. I was born and raised in Ohio and have been an Ohio State and Cleveland sports fan my whole life. But, when I chose this field of work, I realized […]

One Fan's Opinion: A New Era

Occasional contributor Jessi returns to give us her thoughts on the upcoming season under Urban Meyer. September 1st of 2012. To most college football fans, it marks the beginning of a football season for their respective teams. To others, it means “redemption” from the past year – a sort of “resurrection” from the ashes of […]

The Best and Worst of Coaches Bruce, Cooper and Tressel: tBBC Roundtable

Over the past month or so I have written articles about all three of the legendary former coaches to lead the Scarlet and Gray on the gridiron. I touched on a great many things from Earle Bruce’s rise from high school to college; to coach Cooper finally understanding what it means to be a Buckeye; […]

Jim and Ellen Tressel – Charity King and Queen

Jim Tressel is a great coach and will have a legacy at Ohio State that may be tough to match. From the relationships he forged with his players to the overall record that dominated the college football scene for ten years. He will be a tough act to follow in Scarlet and Gray even for […]

Remembering Tress: Billy Brewster

As we reflect on the legacy of Jim Tressel, it’s important to remember that “you win with people” was more than just a motto for his work. He impacted people in significant ways that are long lasting, and not just folks who played for him. Grant at BHC has done an amazing job at talking […]

Remembering Tress: Fire And Nice

On this anniversary of James Patrick Tressel’s last day at work, several of the folks from tBBC are joining others in the BBN to talk about the impact that The Vest had on the program. Coach Jim Tressel’s public persona has taken a beating over the past thirteen months, and understandably so. His transgressions deserved […]

Remembering Tress: Roy Hall

On this anniversary of James Patrick Tressel’s last day at work, several of the folks from tBBC are joining others in the BBN to talk about the impact that The Vest had in Columbus, both on and off the field. We were fortunate to be able to talk with

Remembering Tress: The Coach I Knew

It is hard to believe how small in Jim Tressel is when you meet him face to face. When I meet someone who has a legacy that is larger than life, I always expect that person to be mammoth and tower over me. I always expected to see Coach hulking over me, rather than standing […]

Is It Time To Ban Silver Bullet Points? That's Debatable

May’s second midweek madness gets existential. The big story of the day was the “discussion” about the future of our favorite sport- more on that after the jump. Buckeye 411 Sandman. Freak of Nature.  The guys at CBS Sports have taken a look across the college football landscape, and identified the physical specimen that we […]

A Comprehensive Review of Coach Tressel's Recruiting Classes

It’s no secret that we here at tBBC owe a lot to Buckeye Planet– several of our team learned our craft there, and the connections we have with insiders from BP help guide and direct our coverage. It’s a great community of fans, and I encourage every Buckeye to get involved there if they have […]

BBN: Three Questions From Ohio State's 2012 Signing Day

Following an epic National Letter of Intent Day at Ohio State, several of the Buckeye Blogs wanted to take a closer look at how this will all play out for the future. Be sure to check out the work at The Buckeye Blog, Buckeye House Call, Men of the Scarlet and Gray, Our Honor Defend, […]

Silver Bullet Points To The Rafters

It’s hump day, which means the mid-week linkage and notes from around the world of college sports. Buckeye 411 Dennis Hopson’s number hasn’t been retired by Ohio State. As someone who grew up in Ohio during his reign, I find that unbelievable… almost unforgivable. So, like a lot of other folks, I’m 100% behind the […]
