What Do You Want To See On Saturday? B1G Championship

Well we move on from THE game to the B1G game.  Let’s see what our staff has in store for us this week: Ken Offense - Mistake-free (turnovers/penalties) game.

Ohio State News And Notes: Silver Bullet Points 12.3.13

And The Chase Continues… Sparty in his Sights-Urban Meyer was very business like in his weekly press conference on Monday.

The Week That Were: 10.26.13

It’s a week of ghastly costumes and other ghoulish accoutrements… so of course, we’ve got a great soundtrack for all of our friends.

tBBC Pick 'Em: Even After Week One

They say tying is like kissing your sister. Pucker up. That’s where we stand after one week of our head-to-head pick. Yours truly and Gary were correcting in picking Ohio State and Illinois to win last week. I correctly picked Iowa winning at Minnesota but was disappointed in the effort of Purdue as Gary was […]

The Week That Were: 09.21.13

Monday’s menagerie of thoughts and wonderings on Saturday’s shenanigans comes with music. It was an “ugly” weekend, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t make a silk purse out of it all. Before we dive into the scores, it’s important to remember how trivial college athletics is in the big picture of things. Unfortunately, this […]

Passing Along Some Silver Bullet Points

OSU and MSU are meeting up for the rubber match in the B1G Tournament Semifinals today.

B1G Men's Tournament Live Thread: Day Two

#3 Michigan State versus #6 Iowa Iowa used a quick start and some of Sparty’s own medicine to jump out to a 30-20 lead at halftime.  The Hawkeye’s quick start opened a double digit lead but Michigan State settled down and was able to get the lead trimmed in the middle of the half.  Iowa […]

Monday Musings

Here we are, another week. Grab your coffee and let’s get right to it. Football A bit of a slow week, but not entirely dormant for Buckeye fans.
