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. Control the ball and the clock with power running, Don’t turn the ball over, Take advantage of turnovers, and Hold on for […]

Pick 'em: Desperation time?

Ok. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I was only able to narrow the gap by one game, thanks to Michigan’s choke job against Big Brother in East Lansing and thanks to Gary for deciding to pick every other game the same way I did. Way to be original. Should I do your laundry and […]

The Week That Were: 11.2.13

“November is for champions”.  Guess what, folks… it’s champions time. For the first time this season, the memorable games from The Week That Were found themselves coming from B1G Country. And, if I’m completely honest, the top two made my weekend pretty fantastic. First, let’s go to the “What’s NU With You?” battle, as Nebraska […]

The Week That Were: 10.12.13

Great week to be on a bye- Three undefeateds and a top ten team lost, and two other top 10 teams struggled…  And, as much as I hate to admit it, only one song came to mind for Monday’s soundtrack.  Enjoy. Of course we’re going to start off in Happy Valley, where Michigan’s Brady Hoke […]

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 […]

The Week That Were: 9.15.13

Where to start, where to start. Alabama got revenge, Michigan almost got upset by Akron, Texas still can’t play defense and Nebraska, well, Bo Pelini better have his resume updated. But we must start with the odd finish to the Wisconsin-Arizona State game in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The Sun Devils led 32-30 […]

The Week That Were: 9.7.13

Given the rain delay in the BYU /UT game this week and the deluge of rushing that befell the Longhorns after kickoff, there’s only one option for this week’s soundtrack. See, this is why there should be no polls before the first weekend in October. Once again, we see a number of teams that got […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 3

We’re getting close to kickoff time and with the start of the regular season comes anticipation of The Game. So with that in mind, let’s celebrate the No. 3, the margin of victory in The Game of the Century: OSU 42, Michigan 39 on Nov. 18, 2006. OSU came in No. 1 in every poll. Michigan […]

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 […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 25

The most important game of the season for any Ohio State fan or player is the annual season ending showdown against Michigan.  Over the years the two teams have produced numerous unforgettable games with conference or national titles on the line and the 2005 showdown between 9th ranked Ohio State and 17th ranked Michigan was […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

Heading into the final week of the season we still do not have a clear cut favorite to win the National Championship.  That, my friends, is exciting news! This past week continued to be just like the many weeks before. There were more Top 25 losses, more new additions, and more shocking developments. This week’s […]

The Mess Beyond Miami

The offseason brings us another variation from the format of your midweek news and notes, as a couple of big stories have dominated the college sports landscape. That being said, it’s not like I’m going to deprive you of your Wednesday motivational tunes. Lack Of Institutional Control For those of you waiting for the other […]

Silver Bullet Points Ain't Goin' Anywhere

We’re one week away from National Letter Of Intent Day, and the excitement (and chaos) is building.  We’ll talk a bit this week about the idea of “verbals” and visits, but let’s dig through the news bucket a bit first, shall we? Oh, and Mark Titus’ favorite band brings us our musical inspiration for the […]
