Notre Lame and the championship debacle Let me be the first to say it, I was wrong, just completely and utterly wrong. I thought that the Irish would have learned from the […]

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 […]

Hei-sham On Saturday the Heisman trophy was awarded to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Why did people outside the SEC region vote for Manziel? Yes, he accumulated 4600 total yards on the […]

The Week That Were- 11.24.12

As you’re reading this, I’m somewhere above you making the phrase “flyover states” a reality, and heading back to the left coast. As such, this week’s review will be a bit shorter than previous ones, but know that I’ve only got one song on my mind as I write it And now, we know the […]

The Week That Were: 11.10.12

Oh, college football… How I love you!! Well, that happened. While a lot of people were saying that Alabama was ripe for a loss against a Texas A&M team that’s been playing really well over the past few weeks, most of this felt like lip service. You know, the kind of things that ESPN makes […]

#19 Ohio State Comes Up Short Against #7 Notre Dame, 57-51

The day has finally arrived, the start of college basketball season and the Ohio State men’s and women’s basketball teams were scheduled to get the season off to a proper start by playing in the Carrier Classic in Charleston, South Carolina.  While the men’s game was cancelled due to water, the women’s game went on […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Finally Complete

The Buckeyes played their most complete game of the season this past Saturday in dispatching Illinois 52-22. A game that shouldn’t have been close wasn’t. A team that has in recent years played to the level of its competition, whether up or down, the Buckeyes showed their mite by putting their foot on the gas […]

The Week That Were- 11.03.12

Hey, how about some country for this week’s soundtrack? As the temperatures drop, the games get more heated… and nowhere saw this more true than in the Midwest, where three games with title implications found themselves coming down to the final seconds. You read that right. The midwest- “flyover country” and “battleground states”.  We’ll get […]

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 […]

The Week That Were: 10.20.12

Ah, fall… the wind turns brisk and in Los Angeles the birds turn colors and fall from the trees (ht: David Letterman). We talked last week about “pumpkinitis” that’s sweeping the country… some people are taking it seriously. Instead of subjecting yourself to such a task, take time to kick back with some new tunes […]

The Week That Were: 10.13.12

Here we are, mid-October, when everything starts getting pumpkin flavored for better or worse. So, you’ve got two choices for soundtracks this week, via the “full albums” on Youtube- Something October-ish, or something more Pumpkiny. Salud. Ah, Texas… where dreams go to die.  Three of the most interesting storylines this week came Deep In The […]

The Week That Were: 10.6.12

Hope you’re not too hungover from Homecoming… Not that there’d be anything wrong with that.  This weeks’ TWTW is being composed with this concert in the background- say goodbye to your Pandora station for the next hour and 45 minutes. This has been identified as the first “Shakedown Saturday” of the season, and we knew […]

No Debating Silver Bullet Points

If you think the “Final Verdict” segments of College Gameday are amazing places for rhetoric and logic, you’re probably excited for the beginning of the Presidential Debates tonight.  Me? I’d rather argue about college sports… compared to politics, the BCS makes sense. Buckeye 411 Clothing, Part One- Never ones to miss the obvious, the Athletic […]

This… Is… Silver Bullet Points
