Silver Bullet Points. Shaken, Not Stirred.

Happy Wednesday, and happiest birthday to the young Buckeye in my avatar photo.  Given all of the excitement here on the left coast over the past weekend, my choice for today’s soundtrack was pretty much decided for me. Thoughts and prayers go out to our friends in Chile and South/Central Americas as well… Buckeye 411 […]

The Week That Were: 10.12.13

Great week to be on a bye- Three undefeateds and a top ten team lost, and two other top 10 teams struggled…  And, as much as I hate to admit it, only one song came to mind for Monday’s soundtrack.  Enjoy. Of course we’re going to start off in Happy Valley, where Michigan’s Brady Hoke […]

The Week That Were: 9.28.13

For some reason, I’ve had this song stuck in my head lately. And now, you will too. You’re welcome. The story of the weekend certainly happened off the field… off the field, off the tarmac, and off the bus; as the leadership at Southern Cal had seen enough and decided that the Lane Kiffin Experience […]

The Week That Were: 9.7.13

Given the rain delay in the BYU /UT game this week and the deluge of rushing that befell the Longhorns after kickoff, there’s only one option for this week’s soundtrack. See, this is why there should be no polls before the first weekend in October. Once again, we see a number of teams that got […]

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 […]

The Week That Were- 11.24.12

As you’re reading this, I’m somewhere above you making the phrase “flyover states” a reality, and heading back to the left coast. As such, this week’s review will be a bit shorter than previous ones, but know that I’ve only got one song on my mind as I write it And now, we know the […]

The Week That Were: 11.17.12

We’re going to do things just a little bit differently this week, given all of the amazing news and events that happened this past weekend. So, this will be part Silver Bullet Points, part Monday Morning Commentary, and the usual chunk of random observations from Saturday’s events in the world of college football.  Here’s something […]

The Week That Were: 09.22.12

And now, it gets real. Conference season. No more cupcakes… although, that hasn’t worked out all that well for a lot of teams.  Today’s soundtrack is from this week’s release, and was chosen

The Week That Were: 9.8.12

This week’s soundtrack is colorful, but has a bit of a different taste to it: trust me, it makes total sense in the grand scheme of things.  Enjoy… language warning. There’s no denying it… one group of conference-mates had an incredibly difficult Saturday. Positioned for excellence, and featured in a number of nationally significant matchups, […]

tBBC Conference Cavalcade: PAC-12

As we get closer and closer to kickoff, we’ll be looking across the nation at other (read ‘inferior’) conferences. This way, you’ll have just enough information to justify watching every single game that comes across the telly.  First up- the fellers on the Left Coast. Where does the conference fall in the national rankings- how […]

Silver Bullet Points Uses The Force

Here’s your mid-week morning menudo of links and love Buckeye 411 remarked that giving photos away to parents and/or players would actually be an NCAA violation (providing goods and services not at market value would be an improper benefit). As someone who trusts and values Brandon and Jim’s word and work, you’ve got to wonder […]

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 […]
