The Week That Were: 9.13.14

Ok, let’s get this out of the way now. Ohio State does not have a “bye” this week, they are “idle”. Byes are used in tournaments, and the Buckeyes haven’t earned their way into one of those just yet.  To celebrate, we won’t give you the usual soundtrack, but will look for something a bit […]

The Week That Were: 8.31.13

For those unfamiliar with this feature, consider it your cheat sheet for the conversations around the grill on Labor Day. As always, these come with a melodic interlude to play gently in the background during your perusal… because you’re that important to me. It was the best of times, it was the… well… best of […]

Silver Bullet Points Can Feel It

Well, there won’t be a Rumble later today; Jason’s recovering from the Orion festival (he snuck across the boarder to TSUN, and hopes to come back with his IQ intact and his hearing decimated). As such, your soundtrack for today is my favorite Metallica song from back in the day. Also, we’re launching a new […]

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 […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

This past week featured some prime time match-ups. It also gave us the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and Big East/SEC Challenge. A major top ten power player loses major ground and the “Mid-Majors” tried to hold their own. This week the Top 25 takes a lighter schedule in hopes to regroup after the previous week’s battle […]

The Week That Were- 11.03.12

Hey, how about some country for this week’s soundtrack? As the temperatures drop, the games get more heated… and nowhere saw this more true than in the Midwest, where three games with title implications found themselves coming down to the final seconds. You read that right. The midwest- “flyover country” and “battleground states”.  We’ll get […]

The Week That Were: 9.15.12

Monday’s melange of morning mayhem looks back at an amazing weekend of college football… Just promise to wait until the end of the article to rush the field, OK?  Given the news on Campus from Sunday Night, here’s your soundtrack for our special time together. It was a great weekend to be an Angry Bird, […]

The Week That Were: Opening Weekend 2012

Sure, there’s games on Monday, but the weekend has been so amazing that we just couldn’t wait to get back in the saddle for our reflections on the games of note.  Plus, are we really all that excited about a game that’s all technical and stuff?  I thought not.  Obvious choice for this week’s soundtrack… […]

Picks For The Weak- Week One

It’s here! Week one of the college football season is upon us and it’s time for tBBC College Pick-Em Challenge and my few thoughts on some of the games I picked. I am usually a perfectionist and like to do a lot of research about teams before making an educated guess, but today I am […]

tBBC Conference Cavalcade: SEC

Continuing our look around the nation, Tim takes a quick look at the winner of the last eleventy BCS championships. If you’re a fan of one of these programs, be sure to have someone read this for you (note: does not apply to Vanderbilt). How does the conference fall in the national rankings? How likely […]

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 […]

April Showers Bring Silver Bullet Points

Thursday’s cup of Mulligatawny, carefully crafted for the best damn fans in the land… since you know how to ask. Fingers crossed for good weather on Saturday! Buckeye 411 We Talkin’ About Practice- Today’s event was open to the press, and was a bit less spirited than last week’s affair. Afterward, Coach Meyer said that […]

Buckeye Basketball Breakdown: Do They Have What it Takes?

We’re one day away from finding out the answer to that question.  The last weekend of College Basketball stands before us, and the Buckeyes are one of the last four teams remaining.  They’ve got a tough road ahead, but they’ve certainly got the talent and coaching to make a go of it. You may recall […]
