Silver Bullet Points Aims For The Tank

Just little nibbles this week… you know where to go if you want bigger bites… or if you need a bigger boat. If you replaced “”Mark Ingram” with” Terrelle Pryor”, what do you think the national response and coverage would be like? Oh, and if you use Brooks for a source when he’s writing about […]

UPDATE: OSU/NCAA Investigation

We’ve received numerous reports today that the NCAA and the Ohio State Athletic department are in the midst of a collaborative investigation regarding the allegations involved in yesterday’s Sports Illustrated piece. Speculation is that the investigation continues to center on current Buckeye QB Terrelle Pryor; particularly his usage of various automobiles from local vendors.  NBC4 […]

Sports Illustrated: How Tressel Lost Ohio State

Really? That’s your title? After much speculation and rumors, the article that possibly expedited the end of the Ohio State careers of Jim Tressel (and Terrelle Pryor?) went online at Sports Illustrated this evening. In it, author George Dohrmann raps up a six week investigation into Ohio State football and other aspects of life in […]

Barbarians At The Gate: Decline and Fall?

Look to the past and remember no empire rises that sooner or later won’t fall.- Al Stewart This is the summer of our discontent- the dreaded “off season” that brings with it a lack of coverage for stories about life on the field, and instead finds the 24 hour news cycle filled with rumor, speculation, […]

E:60- Maurice Clarett

In case you haven’t seen this, here’s ESPN’s story on MoC and his life after incarceration. For those new to our site, here’s previous tBBC reflections on #13- he’s one of our Top 25 Buckeyes of the last decade. Keep doin’ work, Maurice…

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 […]

"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

Being a running back for the Ohio State Buckeyes this decade was certainly interesting. It always had it’s highs, and it had it’s lows. But it was always interesting. 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

Brandon Schnittker wasn’t widely known outside of the diehard Buckeye circles. 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 […]
