Silver Bullet Points- Locked and Loaded

Quick hits from around the webs: Personnel items for Marshall– Nate Williams out, Chimdi questionable, Hall and Berry returning kicks. This year’s “Is he a Buckeye or an ESPN shill?” debate just got interesting, as #4 picked the Buckeyes over the Sooners in Glendale. Rumors abound regarding Florida State DB Dionte Allen transferring to Ohio […]

The Buckeye Battle Cry will be counting down the Top 25 players of the past decade all spring/summer.  Every Monday through May and June, Jim will be announcing a new player.  Starting in July, we will be announcing new additions on Monday and Thursday.  Our #1 player will be presented on Monday, August 30th.  Three […]

"He Who Shall Not Be Named" has his day

In 2008, The Buckeye Battle Cry selected Andre Amos as our honoree for Day #13, and a few readers were disappointed over the decision. The argument over excluding Maurice Clarett was that you cannot ignore the on-field success Clarett brought just because he was an off-field jackass. One year later, we’re convinced. Men Of The […]

Almost everybody except Decker says it was unprovoked

The always amazing Ken Gordon has just released his latest article on the Tyler Moeller incident. According to several witnesses, it’s a very basic story.  Apparently, Ralph Gray Decker was drinking “to a greater extent” than Moeller or his family, and he began to have a conversation with Moeller’s sister Ashley.  Tyler Moeller then began […]

Lydell Ross is your friend

Especially for our RBs, it was either sink or swim, and you know who the swimmers were. On the field, they carried the names of Beanie, […]

The glory days of Brandon Schnittker

He was a great blocker and when you’re lined up in the same backfield as a freshman RB who has 1,300 yards on the season, you just KNOW you’re not getting the ball very much. So his stats are not going to dominate the […]

Lllloyd Carr skirts the rules of decency, loses

I’ve gotta be honest, I am JUST NOW hearing about this….but apparently, there’s a little bit of drama and a whole lot of “what, I didn’t see anything” coming out of Ann Arbor, Michigan these days. MotSaG has the story down in a nice summary, but here’s a quick lowdown; WR Adrian Arrington was drinking […]

This is going to be a long, difficult season

With all the hype over Ohio State’s quest for a National Championship in 2006, I spent some time today thinking about how it all relates to the 2002 season. And I’ve gotta tell you, there is very little comparison. Sure, there’s the obvious similarities. But most of the time, we’ve gotta actually LOOK for the […]
