The Week That Were: 11.23.13

Happy Thanksgiving week! Here’s a little music to get you ready for Thursday… and another ditty to prep you for Saturday. You know what’s interesting about college sports? Call it “the circle of life”, call it “karma” (@FightOnTwist pointed out earlier in November, Manziel is an amazing quarterback, but his interceptions often lead to opposing […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 61

Since I’m visiting family in Oregon this week (more Wednesday), it only makes sense that our 61 is the total score of the 1974 OSU battle, where THE Ohio State University overwhelmed the Oregon State University 51-10. The Buckeyes were led, of course, by the eventual Heisman Trophy winner- Archie Griffin. Over 86 thousand packed […]

Silver Bullet Points Loves The Nightlife

Welcome to Wednesday, the first of May… it’s officially grilling season (unless you live in California, where it’s always that time). Here’s today’s soundtrack; if you don’t know why, then… well… keep reading. Buckeye 411 Is The Right Time- The ABC/ESPN/Disney schedule for college football came out on Monday, the the Buckeyes will get to […]

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: 10.13.12

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: 9.29.12

In a week that was seen as a “meh” on the national scene, it was nonetheless a great Saturday for football.  Here’s today’s soundtrack, inspired by Coach Meyer’s comments following the clash with Michigan State. Well, it may have been the weekend before October, but it certainly was another chance for folks to show off […]

The Week That Were: 09.22.12

And now, it gets real. Conference season. No more cupcakes… although, that hasn’t worked out all that well for a lot of teams.  Today’s soundtrack is from this week’s release, and was chosen

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: 12.4.10

There’s no way that we can start this week’s post without wishing Happy Birthday to Coach Jim Tressel. Ironically, it’s also the day of the ninja; although I can’t imagine the silent assassins being as polite or methodical as Senior Sweatervest- how would you write “Dave” in kanji? While there were several significant games on […]

The Week That Were: 11.20.10

If you’re not already listening to the soundtrack for today’s TWTW, do so. Immediately. Greetings from 30,000 feet… yup, this is being typed from somewheres over El Paso Texas. Thank God for tBBC’s generous expense account.  A couple folks have asked- I had to travel this week for business. No, not work related; the business […]

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- Opening Weekend 2010!

Late Sunday/early Monday during the season (what can I say- west coast timezone), tBBC will be bringing you reflections on that week’s game. And, since it’s always great to have mood music to read to, let’s start with this clip from Pitchfork’s top ten videos from the ’90’s All is right with the world- football […]

The Week That Were: 9.19.09

previously on TWTW… Here’s the soundtrack for today’s journey in the past. And no, unlike some people, it’s not really Journey. Arrr, yesterday’s games fell on the national holiday o’ “Talk Like a Pirate Day“. Should we be surprised, then, that the upset o’ the day happened at a place whar people show up in […]

Oh, how the mighty have fallen

Here at The BBC, we take great pleasure in mocking Michigan fans. For longer than I care to remember, they had the upper hand on us, having won 10 out of 13 games over Ohio State (thank you, John Cooper)…..and they were arrogant about it. In my world, payback’s a bitch. So I have no […]

The inaugural BBC post

The night before a big Ohio State game, I find it difficult to fall asleep. When I do finally drift off, it’s a hard sleep, but it never lasts very long. I often will wake up at 5am and have trouble getting to sleep again. This is my curse, and I am living it again […]
