Join us and The Buckeye Blog, Buckeye Empire, Men of the Scarlet and Gray, and Buckeye Ninja as we help our good friend Bo Ryan learn to Deal With It. Today’s […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

Last week when I said we can get this party started, I had no idea the party would be quite like this.  Most conferences opened up conference play (the SEC is a week behind) this past week and it was total mayhem!   The Top 25 teams were all over the place this week.  New Mexico […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 13

As we head into the final weekend of B1G play before the title game next weekend, the Buckeyes sit atop the Leaders Division all alone after clinching on the road at Madison. Not exactly the way the Buckeyes envisioned winning, but they got it done in OT. Let’s take a look at the results from last weekend across the […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review-Week 12

Aside from the Ohio State-Wisconsin overtime thriller, it was a pretty boring week across the Big Ten stage. But, now it is the week of “The Game,” so nothing else really matters. The Buckeyes defeated the Badgers 21-14 in overtime to move to 11-0 on the season, and have officially won the Leaders Division outright. […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 12

It’s a great thing that I decided to stop keeping record of my success, or lack there of, according to the weekly weak picks. I was on my way to my first ever ‘ofer and was saved by the Cornhuskers. #24 Northwestern @ TTUN. Prediction Nerds 21 to 17; WRONG TTUN 38-31  Purdue @ Iowa.  Prediction Iowa 16 to 10; […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Eleven

Ohio State did not play on Saturday, but believe it or not, there were other games played around the Big Ten conference. Some of them actually meant something too. The best game of the weekend was played in Ann Arbor as Michigan scored a 38-31 overtime victory against Northwestern. The Wolverines’ prayers were answered as […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 11

Took a week off to get caught up on a lot of things and because there was so much going on around tBBC with basketball jumping into the mix. No need to revisit the results of two weeks ago as we are in the home stretch! I will begin to cover the national race for […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Ten

As rough of a year as it has been for the Big Ten, the conference currently has the only team in the country with ten wins. After Ohio State’s 52-22 blowout victory against Illinois, the Buckeyes moved to a perfect 10-0 on the season, becoming the first team in the country to reach double digit […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Nine

After five weeks of Big Ten play, only one team remains unbeaten within the conference. Ohio State has won its first five B1G contests in addition to four out of conference games to put the Buckeyes at 9-0 on the season. After a slow start, OSU cruised to a 35-23 victory against Penn State in […]

The Week That Were: 10.27.12

In spite of the huge win in Happy Valley on Saturday, I’m feeling a bit of the blues are in order for this week’s recap. So, enjoy some Collins, Cray, and Copeland. It’d be easy to say that this week was “spook-tacular”, and “scary” for a lot of top teams, but that would be way […]

Picks of the Weak – Week 9

Finished last week teetering on a bad record but the Buckeyes pulled it out in OT against Purdue and I finished 4 and 3 thanks to it! Lets look at the results. Sparty @ TTUN. Sparty 27 to 24. WRONG TTUN 12 to 10 Nebraska @ Northwestern.   Nebraska 35 to 13. RIGHT Nebraska 29 to 28 […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week Eight

There was no shortage of drama around the Big Ten in week eight. Ohio State-Purdue, Michigan-Michigan State and Nebraska-Northwestern all provided quality entertainment for Big Ten fans. Without its star quarterback Braxton Miller, Ohio State was able to improve to 8-0 with an improbable come-from-behind overtime victory over Purdue. We all saw the drama that […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 8

In the weak week that was I finished my best week ever at 5 and 1, no thanks to Wisconsin getting their act together on O against our upcoming opponent Purdue. I am now above .500 for the season at 20 and 19. Let’s take a look at the results! Iowa @ Sparty. Prediction: Iowa […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Week 7

Raise your hand if, at the beginning of the season, you had the Northwestern Wildcats to be the first Big Ten team eligible for a bowl game. Nobody saw that one coming, even with Ohio State ineligible this year. And for the Wildcats to do it after just seven games is even more impressive. Sure, […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 7

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t just the scores that was tripping me up. I at least finished this past week at a paltry 3-4 which brings my overall straight up picks to 15 and 18. Big shout out to Buffalo Buckeye who leads tBBC Pick Em contest at the halfway mark but is closely followed by a large group […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review- Weak 6

If you take a look at the Coaches Poll this week, you will not see any Big Ten teams listed. If that seems unusual to you, it should. This marks the first time in the history of the poll where no Big Ten teams are represented. Ohio State is ineligible for the Coaches poll or […]

B1G Life, B1G Stage: B1G Review-Week Five

It’s October and Big Ten football is officially here. I’ve been very critical of the Big Ten as a conference so far this season and rightfully so. September was an absolutely brutal month for the conference on a national stage. But, with the first week of conference play officially in the books, let’s take a […]

The Week That Were: 9.29.12

In a week that was seen as a “meh” on the national scene, it was nonetheless a great Saturday for football.  Here’s today’s soundtrack, inspired by Coach Meyer’s comments following the clash with Michigan State. Well, it may have been the weekend before October, but it certainly was another chance for folks to show off […]

Picks for the Weak – B1G Opening Weekend

I am not even keeping track of my overall record anymore because its sooo pitiful. Suffice it to say I did finally get one right and sadly it was about Notre Lame beating TTUN . . . oh well! Here goes the results from last week. Safe Bet.  Maryland @ WVU. WVU 47 to 13; Not […]
