What If Lebron Had Been A Buckeye?

I must confess I love fantasy pieces. I am not necessarily speaking of ‘Star Wars’ and space adventures or some of the gothic stuff, or even comic books. I am speaking of sports fantasy. Every year I envision the Buckeyes winning the National Title in football, basketball (Men’s and Women’s), rugby, track and field… and […]

From the Ohio Fanbase: Thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James

A couple weeks ago before the NBA Finals started, I wrote an article about the struggles of Cleveland sports and gave my prediction for the NBA Finals. I will fully admit that I predicted the Warriors would win in five games. For a while it looked like my prediction would be spot on. http://thebuckeyebattlecry.com/college-football/ohio-state-football/will-the-52-year-drought-for-cleveland-finally-end.html However, a […]

So, The Cleveland Cavaliers are NBA Champions

(I may be retired, but I’m not dead. Yet.) Not that I didn’t think I’d live to see this day, but for Cleveland sports fans, this is a period of joy, relief and validation of their (probably) long term support of Cleveland’s professional sports franchises (Browns, Cavaliers, Indians). Father’s Day was an eventful day for […]

Team entrance has a little more spunk with new tunnel and smoke. Not too bad from my new location either.

Shots From The ‘Shoe: Virginia Tech

Saturday was one of those types of game-days that you just new something special was going on in playing Virginia Tech for the first time and in the Shoe. Campus was busy with a lot of fans and most especially Tech fans who made the trip: They were definitely in full force and ready to […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: It All Starts Up Front

The wait is now under 3 weeks. In fact, we are exactly 17 days away from the Buckeyes kicking off 2014 in Baltimore against Navy.  The most asked question going around seems to be “So, how do you think they’ll do this year?” I’ve thought about it over and over, and I keep coming up […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: The Nighttime Is The Right Time

We draw yet another week closer to kickoff. I’m so ready for football that on Sunday I caught myself watching an ESPNU rebroadcast of Auburn vs Georgia. Do you know what else happened on Sunday? The Buckeyes reported for camp! It’s here. It’s also Wednesday, let’s rumble! #BuckeyesAfterDark Looking over the upcoming 2014 schedule, it’s […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Who's Ready For Football?

Ladies and gentleman, it is one month away. We are one short month away from August 30, 2014 and the football season opener in Baltimore against Navy. Are you starting to get that weird feeling in your stomach? Are you starting to get that “Christmas morning” excitement adding a little pep to your step? Me […]

Silver Bullet Points Are Firing On All Cylinders

Well hello there! I take off for a week into the wilderness and come back to find that a) Dexter went Lizard King on me and b) Charles broke the site with his excellent coverage of the Waters situation (more later). It’s good to be needed, ya heard? Seriously, thanks for your patience as we’ve […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: North East Ohio, LeBron and The Return

On July 8th, 2010, LeBron James went on national television and announced that he was leaving Cleveland to “take his talents” to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat. Hearts all over Ohio, especially in North Eastern Ohio, and most especially mine, were ripped out and crushed. A lot has happened in the four […]

Welcome Home, LeBron James!

The King is back – where he belongs, in Northeast Ohio. Friday afternoon’s announcement that LeBron James was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers was Earth-shattering, but it really should not have come as a surprise.  In fact, the only reason it was a shock was because of the inept and biased reporting at ESPN, which […]

Silver Bullet Points: Midsummer Dreams Edition

Thanks for popping by on a Wednesday morning, even if the news for today probably won’t be as exciting as it was seven days ago. Thanks, too, for your patience with the website this week… the people responsible for the tech glitches have been appropriately dealt with. Given our lead bullet point today, here’s your […]

Shots from the Shoe: Wisconsin

As we arrived in Columbus, the anticipation for kickoff was almost unbearable and we were a mere five hours away. It’s become a yearly ritual that a group of us attend the Ohio State/Wisconsin game every year and we were all giddy with excitement to reunite once again for this rivalry. After a little tailgating […]

The Hunter Needs Silver Bullet Points

Well, given Coach Meyer’s perspective for this season, the soundtrack for today should be pretty obvious. There’s the awesome option, and the Ah!Sum! possibility. Happy Thursday, Buck-aroos! Buckeye 411 Health Update- According to Coach Meyer, CJ Barnett will be back in action this week against SDSU, and Corey Lindsley will see more time; although the […]

Monday Musings

Welcome to Monday Musings, glad that you decided to stop in. Grab your beverage of choice and let’s get to this. If it’s early enough in the day, coffee will suffice. If the sun is over the yardarm, I’ll trust you can handle it from there. This week’s photo pays homage to Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” references […]

Monday Musings

Some weekend, eh? Grab your coffee and let’s get right to it. Men’s Basketball A week that started out fairly well, then crashed and burned. In the NCAA’s, they’ve managed to dust Iowa State 78-75, Arizona 73-70 and then fell flat against Wichita State 66-70.  I don’t have much to add to the fine recaps, above, however […]

Assessing the angst in Cleveland

Hypothetical scenario: Jim Tressel’s contract with Ohio State is set to expire, and he elects not to sign an extension.  Rather, he decides to “test the waters” and look at other opportunities on the college football landscape.  After rampant speculation about his leanings, Tressel finally calls a press conference (obviously televised on ESPN) to inform […]

LeBron's elbow is fine

Quick summary – LeBron James has had an aggravating elbow injury for some time now, and because he eased up on it and carried it gingerly at the end of the game last night, it’s become a major story. However, breathe easy Cavalier fans.  The elbow is just fine. 

NBA Playoffs begin in three days

Back when this site was on the SBNation network, we made a concerted effort to stick to all things Buckeyes, and not write about other teams, college or pro. The network had blogs from just about every team/sport out there, so we thought that writing about topics that weren’t related to Ohio State would be […]
