A classic matchup awaited the Buckeyes in the Sweet 16.  The Kentucky Wildcats, who to date were a stunning 0-5 against the Bucks in the NCAA tournament, arrived as the 4 seed to challenge top-seeded Ohio State.  Kentucky got everything a team has needed this season to beat this Buckeye team, securing the tough fought […]

March Madness 2011: East Region

Wrapping up our look across the shootyhoops landscape, with Ohio State’s East Region. Don’t forget to get your picks in for tBBCBC before tip-off tomorrow- we’ve also linked to our “Impressions” of some of these teams from earlier in the year. This is my worst nightmare.

The Week That Were: 11.27.10

Here’s the soundtrack for this week’s journey through the recent past. It’s from one of my favorite artists, and the greatest Thanksgiving movie ever ANDIWILLFIGHTYOUIFYOUDISAGREE. Ahem. Although I usually don’t take requests, I almost made an exception for Coach Rodriguez. What a great week of football- three days worth of collegiate goodness, interspersed with some […]

The Week That Were: 10.16.10

Yup, it was a difficult weekend… but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a spot of fun, right? Not a good Saturday around the old Casa Del Mali, which started when Nebraska found out that the option doesn’t work against a defense with speed. This would normally be the part where I pointed out that […]

Silver Bullet Points- Reloaded

Like the annual haircut (whether needed or not), a new “look” makes a world of difference, no? Since all of the cool kids were getting new school clothes, we thought in only appropriate to join in on the blog couture arms race. Big thanks to Chad of Digital:Construct, an OSU alum who was great to […]

The Week That Were- 9.11.10

Once again, it’s time for a quick tour de farce around the week in college football. You know, in case you don’t have ESPN and this is the only website you read (as it should be). Today’s musical accompaniment: This amazing cover. Good luck getting it out of your head during the TPS meeting. James […]

The Week That Were- Opening Weekend 2010!

And, since it’s always great to have mood music to read to, let’s start with this clip from Pitchfork’s top ten videos from the ’90’s All is right with the world- football […]

What We Did On Summer Vacation- NCAA Edition

Summer is almost over, bringing with it a mixture of disappointment from schoolkids and excitement for college football fans. This guy, however, is probably going to have the same experience, summer or fall. Footage from someone we know? Hard to tell for sure… What we do know, though, is that it has been a pretty […]

The Week That Were: 9.26.09

Finishing what Jeff started, as we do every week. Here’s this week’s soundtrack/music to piss off the people in the cubicle next to you. Every season, there’s one or two weeks that just screw up everything. From the Vegas lines, to the “pundit’s choices”, to alumni plans for Bowl Game Tailgating, and even the coaching […]

The Week That Were: 9.19.09

previously on TWTW… Here’s the soundtrack for today’s journey in the past. And no, unlike some people, it’s not really Journey. Arrr, yesterday’s games fell on the national holiday o’ “Talk Like a Pirate Day“. Should we be surprised, then, that the upset o’ the day happened at a place whar people show up in […]

I Roll Twenties

Today, we could have gone with Mo Hall, Nate Clements, or even the great John Borton. But you don’t play Tresselball without a solid kicking game. Especially if you’re playing Purdue in 2008. Ahem. So, as we’re 20 days from the start of the season, we honor Aaron Pettrey, the pride of Raceland Kentucky. Here’s […]

If you can read this, you're not from an SEC state

UPDATE – Please read this post c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y…it discusses the educational systems of each state, and how well the states educate (or don’t educate) their young minds.  It has deep meaning that could possibly explain the stupid, inbred minds which are unable to comprehend simple matters (in other words, southerners).  If you are a fan of […]
