TBBC Awards: Post Season Thoughts

The fellas around these parts have had some serious angst around the awards from week to week. One week we didn’t want to give any out and the next we couldn’t decide on the player that stood out most. That was the kind of season it was for fans, trying to put a finger on […]

2nd Thoughts: Fiesta Bowl

(I think that Urban is addressing you) Well, that was satisfying, wasn’t it? The Buckeyes made good use of their bowl-prep time (Adolphus Washington, excepted) to keep their offense well-oiled. After scoring over 40 points against Michigan, Ohio State did it again in their 44-28 defeat of Notre Dame. The last time these teams played, […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: BEAT NOTRE DAME

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope you’ve enjoyed the holiday season and it has treated you well. Please continue to be safe! Like most of us in Buckeye Nation, my guess is that you’ve been watching some bowl games and counting down the hours until kickoff in the desert for the 2016 Fiesta […]

Post-Season Awards: Now It Begins For The Buckeyes

(An earlier Ohio State All-American) We’re into the “quiet period”, that time between the end of the regular season (except for Army-Navy) and the bowl season. That means the various media folks will be bestowing their versions of All-American recognition and awards upon collegiate football players they deem worthy of the hone, based upon the […]

TBBC Fans Interact: Ohio State Versus TTUN

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! Please give them a follow on twitter. Did the Buckeyes […]

TBBC Awards: Roasted Wolverine

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 […]

2nd Thoughts: OSU vs Illinois

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 […]

TBBC Awards: Ohio State Versus Illinois

With J.T. Barrett back at the helm this week, the Buckeyes didn’t exactly light up the scoreboard. The Silver Bullets were back to form and Ezekiel Elliott continues to roll along becoming the second best to ever carry the pigskin for Ohio State. Let’s take a look at the staff’s picks for this weeks awards. […]

TBBC Awards: Ohio State versus Minnesota

Another week and another start by Cardale Jones left the natives restless and it was clearly his fault the defense let two slip by them late in the game to make it interesting! I jest of course, but you will see by this weeks results that the Buckeyes have several pieces coming together for what […]

2nd Thoughts: Buckeyes Edge Gophers, 28-14

Urban Meyer approves of wins! It turned out to be a slow-roll win for Ohio State, downing Minnesota 28-14. On again, off again starter Cardale Jones quarterbacked the Buckeyes, and remained undefeated. The off again, on again starter J.T. Barrett enjoyed watched the game from the press-box. So, here we go… Special Teams It was […]

TBBC Awards: Ohio State Versus Rutgers

JT “Just Touch Downs”(to quote my wife) Barrett was the cure for what ails the Buckeye offense. Was there ever really any doubt as to the effectiveness of his type of play? The only downside to his type of play may be Ezekiel’s early production in games, but really it takes the offense time to […]

TBBC Awards: Ohio State vs. Penn State

Here are this week’s awards for The Buckeye Battle Cry staff, after a 38-10 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions. Offensive tOSU Offensive MVP MDotySr –  JT.

OSU vs PSU: THE J.T. AND ZEKE SHOW

(Photo courtesy Columbus Dispatch) (Today we have another guest article by Brandon. It is his perspective on Saturday’s OSU win over PSU. It’s a good read, I suggest you take a few minutes and give it a look; Ken) Even though we don’t like to admit it as a fan base, Saturday night was a huge day […]

TBBC Awards: Indiana Hoosiers

First, lets give credit where it’s due. Hat is off to Indiana for a great game-plan and Kevin Wilson for putting the program on the map. They appear to be defending their territory better and it’s not quite the Shoe of the West anymore. For three of the five weeks we have had these, the […]

TBBC AWARDS: WESTERN TTUN

The line for the spots on the Buckeye Bridge wasn’t quite as long this week as it was the week before. What I mean is there was a considerable fewer number of Buckeye fans who wanted to be done with being a fan, it’s too much for their old ticker! I have to say there […]

Ohio State Shakes off Rust and Hawaii 38-0

After sitting idle for eight months, Ohio Stadium finally saw some gridiron action today. Hawaii traveled over nine thousand miles for the opportunity to play the Buckeyes, and gave Ohio State a surprisingly challenging dogfight for it. The Buckeyes only managed to pull away in the final quarter when they fully gained control of both […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Exit Sandman

Monday Night Football college style was a rousing success if you’re a fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Buckeyes came out like a house on fire, then took a step back in the second quarter but regrouped at halftime and finished up by walloping the Virginia Tech Hokies in Lane Stadium 42-24. I’ve been […]
