Navy Prepares For "Toughest Opening Opponent"

Polls and rankings can tell you a lot about where a college football team stands heading into the regular season. What can even more accurately determine where a team deserves to be in the title talks is the opinions of coaching peers. The Navy Midshipmen have opened up the season against a very good Notre […]

Silver Bullet Points Brushes Up

We’re in post-draft funk here at SBP… also brought on by recent trips to the orthodontist. Wheee.  That also explains why our soundtrack is one of Steve Martin’s lesser known works… his new stuff is much different. Buckeye 411 Game Time! No, we’re not at kickoff yet… dangit.  But today we found out that the […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 58

Today, we acknowledge  Ohio State’s 31-27 win over Navy in 2009. Here at tBBC, we never celebrate wins over service academies, merely acknowledge the fact. I’m sure we make up for it with our victory galas over TTUN, however. The Buckeyes hosted Navy in the season opener, and things went pretty much as expected. For […]

Spring Shapes Silver Bullet Points

Spring has finally arrived in Columbus, it seems- time to enjoy Oval Beach and discover all of the kids’ toys that were buried under the snow.  Being Ohio, though, it only means that there’s another storm on the horizon… so, there’s but one choice for today’s soundtrack. Buckeye 411 Spring Forward- Lots and lots of […]

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 […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 3

In an effort to clean up my act in regards to the weekly weak picks, I am going with games this week that will assure me success (yeah right) As it stands, I am a paltry 3 and 7 on the season having gone 1 and 4 this week. Here are the results of last […]

The Week That Were: Opening Weekend 2012

Sure, there’s games on Monday, but the weekend has been so amazing that we just couldn’t wait to get back in the saddle for our reflections on the games of note.  Plus, are we really all that excited about a game that’s all technical and stuff?  I thought not.  Obvious choice for this week’s soundtrack… […]

Picks For The Weak- Week One

It’s here! Week one of the college football season is upon us and it’s time for tBBC College Pick-Em Challenge and my few thoughts on some of the games I picked. I am usually a perfectionist and like to do a lot of research about teams before making an educated guess, but today I am […]

The Week That Were: 10.23.10

In the spirit of Homecoming, here’s this week’s musical selection. Congrats to Ohio State’s new royalty- I apologize if your reign is rudely interrupted. Columbus wasn’t the only college town named after Spanish explorers that was celebrating “Fleecing Forgetful Alumni Weekend” (so named by a friend who works in alumni relations- it’s amazing how the […]

Beating USC….means Ohio State is 9-0???

Yes, you read that right.  The Ohio State Buckeyes are currently 1-0, having knocked off Navy last weekend.  It’s my contention that if Ohio State wins their second game of the year, they’re as good as 9-0. With all the rabid discussion about the Ohio State-USC game, it appears as if nobody has taken a […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? – USC edition

Eric Keep passing to the TE’s and RB’s -  We had great success in the passing game last week by going to the TE’s and RB’s – in fact the top two receivers were at TE/RB.  USC will be a lot better in pass defense than Navy was, and we will need to spread it […]
