The Week That Were: 10.01.11

Given their recent decision to disband, several people recommended REM tunes for this week’s soundtrack, from the obvious to the more fatalistic. However, we like to keep it upbeat here at TWTW, so this week’s post was written with this R&B classic in mind. In many ways, this was a weekend to forget, as eight […]

Silver Bullet Points Breaks Wind

Your weekly update from the Ohio State press conference as well as notes from around the world of college sports- this week, we take a pointed look at the NCAA after the jump. Usually we reserve soundtracks for TWTW, but someone emailed me a song today that I thought I’d share. They described it as […]

The Week That Were: 9.10.11

This week’s journey back through the world of college sports is a bit more subdued than usual- due, in part, to the lack of “marquee” games, but mostly due to perspective.

If you’re not already listening to the soundtrack for today’s TWTW, do so. Immediately. Greetings from 30,000 feet… yup, this is being typed from somewheres over El Paso Texas.

Happy Halloween! As tempting as it is for me to throw a little Western History at you with today’s musical accompaniment, let’s go with something a little more Disney: Following up on our Protestant Reformation reference, let’s jump in with the  goings on over at Ntre Ame. Remember when beating Notre Dame was a significant […]

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 […]

This weeks’ post comes with a soundtrack: Not all that original, so if you want to get your “Gospel” on and hear the song that was going through my head all day yesterday, this is the link for you. Almost perfect. Like a no-hitter blown at the last minute, yesterday was this close to being […]

The Week That Were- 9.11.10

Once again, it’s time for a quick tour de farce around the week in college football. You know, in case you don’t have ESPN and this is the only website you read (as it should be).
