This week’s fans were lobbed a big, fat slow pitch softball, to steal a term from another sport. The Buckeyes fired on all cylinders against their biggest rival on Saturday and our participants had plenty to say! Big thank you to Micah @micaht22, Chris @chris_drake!

I cannot think of a better way to wash the bad taste out of our mouths than beating the crap out of TTUN. I would like to win it all again, but the Buckeyes are on the outside looking in right now. They don’t have any magic up their sleeves as they wait for help […]
It turned out to be a steady-as-she goes win for Ohio State on Saturday, as they beat Illinois 28-3. J.T. Barrett was again took the snaps, but make no mistake, this is Ezekiel Elliott’s offense. So, here we go… Special Teams It was a bit of a “yawner” day for the special teams. The return game […]
