Officially Speaking: Hold That Tiger

One of the conspiracies that folks have about the Southeastern Conference is that their officials tend to make calls that prevent upsets; it doesn’t help to bite the hand that feeds you, and top ranked teams winning is good for the ratings and the conference. While Alabama’s win over LSU this past Saturday had more […]

The Week That Were: 11.8.14

It’s Monday, but it’s never too early to remember those who paid the price for our freedoms. They say that November is when you play for championships.

The Week That Were: 11.09.13

Today’s soundtrack thanks our Veterans for all that they’ve done… Ok, class… time for a quiz.  What did we learn this week? We learned that the template for beating Oregon has not changed.

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 To Gold

While camp is in session over at the WHAC, it’s important to remember that in 1936 another Buckeye was rocking the world this week. By this time that year, Jesse Owens had already won three of his four gold medals in the 100 and 200m, as well as the long jump; the fourth would come […]

You read that right. The midwest- “flyover country” and “battleground states”.  We’ll get […]

So, you’ve got two choices for soundtracks this week, via the “full albums” on Youtube- Something October-ish, or something more Pumpkiny. Salud. Ah, Texas… where dreams go to die.  Three of the most interesting storylines this week came Deep In The […]
