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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Today’s soundtrack is inspired by the weather, both in Columbus and out here on the west coast… November is when Champions are made. And that starts on day one, it seems. Actually, check that- the defending champs were able to rebound from a shaky start against the Papa John’s and continue their undefeated streak. For […]
Our latest look around the world of college officiating takes a gander at Saturday’s tilt between the Fighting Irish and the Syracuse orange. Let’s take a look at the play in question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=rpOBQ58tot0#t=70 WVaBuckeye- First things first. What were the TWO backfield officials, typically your best rules guys, doing killing the play? The referee has […]
As you may remember, we’re checking in regularly with our favorite college and high school officials, giving them a chance to help us understand a recent on-field event. Today, we “target” a play from last week’s Michigan/Notre Dame tilt. OK Buckeye: Welcome to another week and for a review of a play type that has […]
Healing starts with honesty, so here’s your look back at all of the games from the second weekend in the college football season. As always, we provide a soundtrack- remember, we’ve got each other. What if I told you… What if I told you that three top teams from the same conference lost? What if […]
Ohio State and Notre Dame have agreed to a home-and-home series on the gridiron for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

Ohio State (11-0) and Notre Dame (8-3) squared off this evening in the Gotham Classic played in, well, NYC. The preview to the game is here; the recap is below. Ohio State overcame a cold 2nd half of shooting (10 – 29 ) 34% to pull out a last second thriller against the Irish of […]

The Buckeyes, after disposing of the Fightin’ Blue Hens on Wednesday, line up against the Fighting Irish. A lot of combativeness going on this […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
For those unfamiliar with this feature, consider it your cheat sheet for the conversations around the grill on Labor Day. As always, these come with a melodic interlude to play gently in the background during your perusal… because you’re that important to me. It was the best of times, it was the… well… best of […]
