Poll Position: Ducking Out Of The Top Spot

As everyone has told Buckeye fans all season long, “let the games play themselves out” and that they are. Another top unbeaten team has fallen and this time it was a biggie. Oregon was dominated for 54 minutes by Stanford last Thursday and have fallen out of the top spot. Not a lot else really […]

The Week That Were: 11.09.13

Today’s soundtrack thanks our Veterans for all that they’ve done… Ok, class… time for a quiz.  What did we learn this week? We learned that the template for beating Oregon has not changed. Control the ball and the clock with power running, Don’t turn the ball over, Take advantage of turnovers, and Hold on for […]

Poll Position: Two Atop tBBC Top Ten

Another week, another shake up in tBBC top ten. In a week that saw undefeated Missouri and Texas Tech drop from the ranks of the unbeaten, and Miami and Stanford survive “scares” from Wake Forest and Oregon State, the top four teams just continued on their merry way towards a date with a crystal ball. […]

Poll Position: Huge Shift In tBBC Top Ten

What a week it was in college football. Many Buckeyes fans have wondered aloud what would need to happen for the Bucks to be playing in the “2nd game” in Pasadena in January and some of those wishes came true on Saturday. Teams like Louisville, Georgia, Texas A&M, LSU and South Carolina all but eliminated […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: The Chase Is On!

Shake up in tBBC Top Ten

Every year there seems to be one or two weeks that shape and define that certain college football season. This past Saturday seemed to be the first of one of those weeks. We saw two undefeated top teams go down (Stanford and Oklahoma) and a few other top ten teams barely survive. It was a […]

The Week That Were: 10.12.13

Great week to be on a bye- Three undefeateds and a top ten team lost, and two other top 10 teams struggled…  And, as much as I hate to admit it, only one song came to mind for Monday’s soundtrack.  Enjoy. Of course we’re going to start off in Happy Valley, where Michigan’s Brady Hoke […]

Poll Position: tBBC Top Ten, Week 6

The second poll of the year is in and Oregon keeps the top spot at tBBC. Oregon came in at number one with the same number of first place votes (6) as last week. The voters changed their first place votes a tad (after a lot of back lash for OSU receiving 1 first place […]

The Week That Were: 9.28.13

For some reason, I’ve had this song stuck in my head lately. And now, you will too. You’re welcome. The story of the weekend certainly happened off the field… off the field, off the tarmac, and off the bus; as the leadership at Southern Cal had seen enough and decided that the Lane Kiffin Experience […]

The Week That Were: 8.31.13

For those unfamiliar with this feature, consider it your cheat sheet for the conversations around the grill on Labor Day. As always, these come with a melodic interlude to play gently in the background during your perusal… because you’re that important to me. It was the best of times, it was the… well… best of […]

Silver Bullet Points Has Additional Obligations

Good to be back… although I can always count on the team to hold the fort down for me.  Given the news of the last 24 hours, I was tempted to go with a more “good advice, one week late” soundtrack. Instead, though… may this bring calm to your Wednesday’s wanderings. Buckeye 411 Watching The […]

Silver Bullet Points Has Been To The Mountain Top

If you’re following us on the book of face, you know that I made it back from my trip to Mt. Whitney last week- when you’d usually be reading SBP, I was at 14,508 ft, as the picture to the right can attest. It’s Buckeye Nation everywhere, people.  To celebrate, today’s soundtrack is a personal […]

Silver Bullet Points Makes Memories

Hopefully you’re either recovering from the long weekend or making plans for the next one… as an educational moment, though, be sure to know what you’re doing. As for me, I had a great weekend up above the treeline and enjoying some music that made me remember my college days… so, it’s also your soundtrack. […]

Silver Bullet Points' Gots Questions

Lotta stuff rattling around the ol’ brainpan the last couple of days… sometimes it’s good to have a bit of distraction from the harshness of our realities. Here’s the song that’s been stuck in my subconscious… Buckeye 411 Our Long National Nightmare Is Over, Part One- Braxton’s hair is back to normal. Whew. Making Friends […]

Silver Bullet Points Comes Out Of Its Shell

No, it’s not time for the IlliBuck trophy again… Tuesday’s “news” was full of terrapin conversation, so we go where it leads. As such, here’s this morning’s soundtrack… I’m sure my folks will recognize it. Buckeye 411 Urban Legend- The world was a twitter yesterday with news that Urban Meyer had revealed that Woody Hayes […]

Dontre Wilson Is A Buckeye !!!

While National Letter of Intent day is Wednesday, Ohio State received word Monday that Texas athlete Dontre Wilson wasn’t interested in waiting until then, as he verballed to be the latest member of the Buckeyes’ 2013 class. Wilson, a one time Oregon commit, has been in contact with Coach Meyer and the staff for quite […]

Counting The Cost With Silver Bullet Points

It’s a relatively quiet week for Ohio State sports (*knocks on wood*); coaches are recruiting, hoops is preparing for an attempt to sweep That State Up North, and all the students are above average.  So, let’s dig around the ol’ interwebs and see what we can find to chat about today, shall we? Oh, and […]

Silver Bullet Points Changes The Game

Well, it’s the day that I’m certain you have all been anxiously awaiting, leading us to only one choice for today’s soundtrack. Well, Ok… two, and anything from these guys would also suffice. Buckeye 411 Turf to Surf- Well, it’s 9 days into 2013, and day two of Ohio State’s reign as National Champion… what […]
