Silver Bullet Points Goes Trophy Hunting

We’re in uncharted waters here… it’s really an odd feeling to have a game after THE GAME. If you’re heading to the game, be sure to check out a great blues bar downtown… these guys are playing this weekend! Buckeye 411 Meaningful Awards- Clair gave you the lowdown on the All Conference awards on Tuesday […]

Eight Is Enough For Silver Bullet Points

Well, it’s certainly been an… interesting… day as far as news goes. But before we dive into the dregs of college sports (and those who “oversee” it), let’s enjoy the fact that it’s finally FOOTBAW! season.  Here’s your “pump up”/palate cleanser before the season kicks off. Buckeye 411 Captains, My Captains- Well, the news yesterday […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 6

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 6, the Ohio State’s margin of victory over Penn State on October 26th, 2002, 13-7. The Buckeyes moved to 9-0 on the season by edging the Nittany Lions in a defensive stalemate. Some of the offensive woes could be attributed to Maurice Clarett being injured in the 1st quarter, […]

Former Buckeyes and Their Apologies

The idea of this article came to me this past weekend as I was trying to keep up with my timeline on Twitter. There were obviously a ton of former Buckeyes playing in preseason NFL games and the tweets that were the most intriguing to me were the ones in support of Terrelle Pryor. Bear […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 32

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 32, an Ohio State victory over Washington State on  September 14th, 2002, 25-7. In a match-up of two ranked teams (#8 Ohio State, #11 Washington State), the Buckeyes overcame a sluggish 1st half (trailed 7-6) to roll past the Cougars. This was beautiful Tressel-ball as Maurice Clarett rushed for […]

Silver Bullet Points Has Been To The Mountain Top

If you’re following us on the book of face, you know that I made it back from my trip to Mt. Whitney last week- when you’d usually be reading SBP, I was at 14,508 ft, as the picture to the right can attest. It’s Buckeye Nation everywhere, people.  To celebrate, today’s soundtrack is a personal […]

Major Award: tBBC Bracket Challenge

A great game on Monday night led to a great result- Michigan didn’t win.  I’m sure that was as exciting for you as it was for Rick Pitino, right? Congratulations to the Louisville Cardinals on their season, and to Columbus’ Trey Burke on his college career. Thanks, too, for deciding to go pro so I […]

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 […]

Silver Bullet Points Lays It On The Line

It’s championship week here at tBBC, and we’ll have all your B1G Tournament coverage coming up until the Buckeyes cut down the nets.  So, it only makes sense, then, to have our soundtrack for today be the latest from OSU alum and friend of the site Mekka Don, who’s scored an exclusive deal to provide […]

Illustrating Sports With Silver Bullet Points

Today’s soundtrack is brought to you by 70 degrees and sunny skies in Los Angeles. Oh, and a little bit of EW&F. Buckeye 411 Buck And Cover- That thing over there is this week’s Sports Illustrated cover, well everywhere but the southeast. I think that the expectations and so forth for this team are pretty […]

Shots from the Shoe – The Game

What a long and full day of excitement. Nothing will ever replace or beat my experiences in 2002(I don’t think), but this came very close to being as enjoyble. There was so much happening after THE Game in 2002 that really the best part that I remember is being on the field with 100,000 screaming […]

DRIVEN Flag Football Game Benefits Spielman Fund

This past Saturday at Thomas Worthington High School in Columbus, The DRIVEN Foundation hosted it’s Flag Football game featuring former Buckeyes and benefiting the Stefanie Spielman Fund. Several former Buckeyes were participating as well as others representing The Columbus Christian Center Church who also sponsored the event. The weather may have put a damper on the attendance, […]

Shots from the Shoe – 106,120

It’s amazing isn’t it? That in the history of the stadium, and all of the great match-ups that have taken place there, it took the last time we’ll see Nebraska until 2017 to set a new attendance record over the likes of TTUN, Texas and USC. I am sure homecoming and the fact that there […]

Shots From the Shoe – Cal

The life of an Ohio Stadium Usher can be interesting to say the least, especially for someone like me who lives two hours away. Due to being a high school football official and working all over the state, I can get home pretty late on Fridays,  only to get up at 5:30am to head to […]

Silver Bullet Points Hunts Bearcats

In the calm before the storm… it’s midweek mayhem. The rest of the week will be dedicated to hoops, particularly the matchup with folks from Cincy, but I thought I’d drop a little mascot knowledge on you. While that thing above may technically be a “bearcat”, I’m still convinced that the official team name should […]
