Rumblin, Stumblin, Bumblin: O-H-I-O The

I check in with you this week with only a little about the Buckeyes and it’s not that good.  We’ll also touch base(once again sigh) about fan base actions that disappoint. I want to throw out a S/O to my good friend Michael Doty Sr. for hitting a grand slam earlier this week with his guest article about […]

tBBC Game Preview: Iowa Hawkeyes

The #4/3 Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0) host the Fightin’ Ferentzs’ of Iowa (4-2, 1-1) for an afternoon game in Columbus on Saturday. Up until a couple years ago, I always considered this a match-up of two teams with similar philosophies.  Now, I see the game as the “new/improved” Ohio State playing a Tressel-ball bound team with less […]

FAMU Redux: A Pointed Silver Bullet

Well, that was a somewhat interesting game on Saturday, wasn’t it? I’ve noticed there’s been the usual beefing, complaining and angst about Ohio State scheduling an FCS team like Florida A&M University. These feelings have come in the guise of articles and their comments. I can understand that; demolishing a clearly inferior opponent 76-0 doesn’t […]

tBBC Game Preview: Florida A&M Rattlers

The Buckeyes return home from a successful Left Coast trip to play an FCS opponent out of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), the Rattlers of Florida A&M University (FAMU).  The Buckeyes (3-0) are coming off an exciting, yet convincing, win over Cali-Berkeley (52-34), while the Rattlers (1-2) lost to Samford (27-20).

Wednesday Night Rumble: Fair is fair?

What can I say, the dead period trudges forward like an Iowa running back in a race against an SEC cornerback. Up in Eugene the penalties on the Oregon Ducks have been levied. Aaron Hernandez is an idiot and his actions have allowed a door to open for a former Buckeye. Meanwhile, over in Youngstown […]
