Sweet Home Silver Bullet Points

Greetings from the Windy City… the family vacation continues, and we’ve survived a trip to the Mitten State That Sucks.  Today’s soundtrack is my wife’s favorite song about Carl Sandburg’s home. Buckeye 411 My New Favorite Recruit- Sure, he’s only been a Buckeye for a little while, but Tyler Green (seen on the right there […]

The Week That Were: 2013 Championship Weekend

Look, I know it’s the holiday season and all that, but I’m not feeling it just yet. Here’s some Ella if you’re in a similar mood this Monday. And so it ends… not with a bang, but a whimper. Not for everyone, but for fanbases who entered Saturday with significant postseason aspirations, the doors gently […]

Poll Position: Cowboy Up

If the pundits and voters would only listen to us, they’d understand that the B1G is due some respect. With three teams in the latest tBBC Top Ten, the Legendary Leaders put one more than the ACC, PAC, B12, and SEC. (Not that we’re biased or anything) Pos. Team (1st Votes) LW 1 Florida State […]

Silver Bullet Points Fingers

As you’re reading this, I’m prepping for the drive from Los Angeles to the Bay Area with the Mrs. for Saturday’s game.

Gonna’ warn you, though… this week’s reflection is… […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Festive

Tuesday’s news gave us two hall of fame suggestions for today’s sountrack(s).  And no, it’s not Christmas music- we’ll get to that later. Buckeye 411 Major Awards- It’s the silly season for College Football, and sure enough America’s favorite collegiate popularity contest machine has decided to include some Buckeyes as a reward for the undefeated […]

tBBC Conference Calvalcade: Big 12

We continue the journey across the nation to get you ready for kickoff in less than two weeks. Today, Gary weighs in on the newest incarnation of the Big 12 conference.

Silver Bullet Points Hunts Bearcats

In the calm before the storm… it’s midweek mayhem. The rest of the week will be dedicated to hoops, particularly the matchup with folks from Cincy, but I thought I’d drop a little mascot knowledge on you. While that thing above may technically be a “bearcat”, I’m still convinced that the official team name should […]

Justice, Alabama, and the BCS: Part 2

Justice, Alabama, and the BCS: Part 1

This is the first of a two part article on this year’s BCS problems. When you think of justice it obviously brings to mind the concepts of the court of law, lady justice, and a jury of your peers. Rarely do people consider justice in college football. They may use words like “fair” and “just” […]

The Week That Were: "Championship" Week

For the last TWTW of the season, I was digging deep for musical inspiration. While I’ve been playing the new Black Keys album non-stop, I wanted to find something that encapsulated the anticipation and pleading that so many are involved in these day- all looking toward a special event at the first of the year.  […]

One Fan's Opinion: Oklahoma State Deserves Title Shot

For that, we turn to our Big Integer correspondent… I’m a man and not quite 40, and last night […]
