The Week That Were: 11.05.11

The Week That Were looks at the hyperbolic and the unexpected. Once again, I was wandering around the wilderness on gameday, which explains why Stevie makes a repeat appearance as our soundtrack for “The Review Of The Century”: NOTE- Scroll down for our comments regarding Penn State coverage. Well, let’s get right to it… the […]

The Week That Were: 11.13.10

Time once again to take a look back at all the fancy doin’s in the realm of college football.  This week’s theme music reminds you to not call it a comeback… Some sad news to end the weekend: Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Southern Miss players who were shot last night following […]

The Week That Were: 10.30.10

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 […]

The Week That Were: 10.16.10

Yup, it was a difficult weekend… but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a spot of fun, right? Not a good Saturday around the old Casa Del Mali, which started when Nebraska found out that the option doesn’t work against a defense with speed. This would normally be the part where I pointed out that […]

The Week That Were: 10.09.10

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: 10.02.10

From the “He started it!” files- This week, we join our friends at 11W in celebrating Oktoberfest and all it’s splendor. So, break out the lederhosen, get your sauerkraut all warmed up, and find grandma’s recipe for schnitzel… This weekend looked to be the best thus far in terms of quality matchups, but only a […]

The Week That Were: 9.25.10

This week’s commentary is brought to you by my inner grumpy old man: One comment on Eastern Michigan, since all we do is talk Buckeyes here. Throughout the game I was having Dennis Green “They are who we thought they were” flashbacks, although not in ways that were complementary. Ok, let’s get our weekly dose […]

The Week That Were- 9.18.10

This is being written on September 19th… that’s right, “International Talk Like A Pirate Day“. So, who better to lead us into this weeks’ recap than everyone’s favorite buccaneer, Mike Leach: Of course, to get the full effect of the day, you’ll need to use the Pirate Translator for this webpage. Avast! Speaking of Pirates, […]

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). Today’s musical accompaniment: This amazing cover. Good luck getting it out of your head during the TPS meeting. James […]

Game From Obscurity

Toward the end of every week, tBBC brings you insight into a clash between two schools that you won’t see on ESPN. Small in stature, big in heart… Our regular readers may notice that one of the team has been less present as we’ve headed toward kickoff of the 2010 season. Yup, we’ve been doing […]
