Pick ‘Em Whatever Week This Is: Just Shoot Me

I’m glad there are only two more weeks left. This year’s Pick ‘Em has been humbling. I stink at picking games in 2014. Of course, the teams aren’t helping me out so there’s that. In recapping last week’s wonderful display of foresight, Ken went 6-1, missing only ND over Northwestern. I followed with a 3-3 […]

The Week That Were: 11.15.14

Melvin Gordon. Melvin. Gordon. Mel. Gordo. Look, given my marital responsibilities, that’s really all I’m comfortable saying about the Wisconsin running back’s record day three quarters against Nebraska’s “Black shirt” defense in the B1G West Game of the Week. The senior (thank God) tailback’s NCAA record 408 yards were more than enough to bump the […]

Pick ‘em Week …. Throwin’ In The Towel

I rolled the dice and crapped out. I’m waving the white flag. I’m giving my concession speech. There is no way I can defend my Pick ‘Em title.  Last week pretty much did me in. I took Indiana over Penn State, whoops. Purdue over Wisconsin, oops. Northwestern over Michigan, yikes. I did get Minnesota over […]

The Week That Were: 11.8.14

It’s Monday, but it’s never too early to remember those who paid the price for our freedoms. They say that November is when you play for championships. That’s certainly the case when your media partner hypes your conference in such a way that your matchups in November will all be among ranked teams, right? But […]

Pick ‘Em Week 8: Free Falling

Well, I had a nice run. One year in a row. I’m about ready to throw in the white flag. But the Royals were down 7-3 in the 8th and came back to win. No reason I can’t come back and win this thang. In recapping what went down last week, Ken had a great […]

Ohio State Silver Bullet Points: 10.7.14

Our favorite fitness guru is taking a “bye week” of her own, so you’re stuck with me again. Hopefully our morning music will make up for it. Of The Week- JTB continues to pile up awards, this time adding the Athlon Freshman of the Week accolades to his resume following the win over the Maryland […]

2014 Big Ten Conference Preview: West Division

Not content to only preview Ohio State’s schedule, Patrick is taking a two part look at the B1G for 2014. Here’s a look at the newbies and our Western Division brethren; after lunch the East gets due scrutiny in addition to the championship game predictions. When the dust settled on the 2013-14 season, the B1G […]

Champions Deserve Silver Bullet Points

With our lead story today being what it is, of course there’ll be the obvious tie-ins for the soundtrack of today’s SBP.  If 70’s rock ain’t your thing… here’s some 80’s pop and some country instead. Buckeye 411 Pucker Up- Oh man, oh man, oh man… Kenny G is coming to LA! Sure it’s a […]

Silver Bullet Points Is Ready To Battle On

Like the rest of Ohio, we’ve got Stanley Cup fever here… we’re on a series of shots and medications, but to be honest, we hope it sticks around for a while.  So, in preparation for tonight’s game, here’s a little something to help you get ready to #BeatPittsburgh. Buckeye 411 The League- Pretty good week […]

Silver Bullet Points. Shaken, Not Stirred.

Happy Wednesday, and happiest birthday to the young Buckeye in my avatar photo.  Given all of the excitement here on the left coast over the past weekend, my choice for today’s soundtrack was pretty much decided for me. Thoughts and prayers go out to our friends in Chile and South/Central Americas as well… Buckeye 411 […]

Nothing Conflicted About Silver Bullet Points

Life is full of decisions. Sometime soon (Friday?) we’ll get the official word that LaQuinton Ross has decided to head to greener pastures… but until then, here’s the soundtrack for our midweek musings. Practice Notes Receiving Praise- Coach Meyer talked on Tuesday about the need for the receiving corps to be a strength of the […]

BBN Basketball Liveblog: Northwestern

The Buckeyes are playing hosts again this evening. This time, the surprisingly stout Northwestern Wildcats are visiting Columbus. The Wildcats are on a bit of a slide, losing their last three. However, their wins at Wisconsin and at Minnesota at the beginning of the month stand out as big, blaring warnings for the Buckeyes this […]

Silver Bullet Points Celebrates Excellence

This week we lost a musical legend and great Ohioan… so, this morning’s soundtrack should help you get through the middle of your workweek. Buckeye 411 Net Success- Congrats to the Tennis-Bucks, who won this year’s NCAA Indoor Championship earlier this week. In doing so, Ohio State defeated top ranked Virginia (who hadn’t lost in […]

Silver Bullet Points Dethaws

Well, given the news today in college sports and elsewhere, I think I’ve got a couple of soundtrack offerings that will draw it all together.  Stay warm people!! (it’s supposed to be down to the 60s in Los Angeles today… brrrrrrr.) Buckeye 411 Chosen Frozen- We’ve got to give major kudos to Buckeye coach Tom […]

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 […]
