Thursday Thoughts: Still Somewhat Basketball Related

    Welcome to another episode of Musings. Nothing much profound this week, just some tidbits that caught my attention. Grab some joe, and let’s go. The James/Wexner COLUMBUS, Ohio – Dr. John Byrd, a nationally renowned leukemia specialist and researcher at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital […]

tBBC Rewind- Playoff Proposal

On Friday, tBBC turns 5.  Or, as Jeff says “we’re old enough to be in kindergarten!” which will come as no surprise to all eight of our regular readers. You’ll also be happy to know that we’ve officially stopped eating paste. So, to celebrate we “veterans” are taking a look back and re-posting our favorite […]

Silver Bullet Points Aims For The Tank

Just little nibbles this week… you know where to go if you want bigger bites… or if you need a bigger boat. If you replaced “”Mark Ingram” with” Terrelle Pryor”, what do you think the national response and coverage would be like? Oh, and if you use Brooks for a source when he’s writing about […]

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 […]

That Guy

Each of us knows “That Guy”- the person who, for reasons known only to their psyche, is overzealous at the wrong time and screws things up for everyone else. Steves Urkel and Bartman come to mind, as do numerous characters from Drew’s “Great Moments in Drunken Hookup Failure” feature over at Deadspin. So- What does […]

Final Thoughts on Expansion… For Now

It appears that the dust has settled (for the time being) on the crazy expansion frenzy that has gripped the college football world over the past two weeks. In the end, what actually happened seems a bit mild when compared with the expectations just a few short days ago. The Pac-10 added Colorado to bump […]

Cowboy Up….uh…. "Over"

Looks like Mike Gundy will get to “be a man!!!” on the beaches of the west coast, as rumors are now swirling regarding T. Boone Pickens University (Oklahoma State, if you’re new to tBBC) will be making the move to the Pac-10 along with Colorado. First spotted on TMZ, (I know…), it’s been linked on […]

Rocky Mountain "Bye!"

Following yesterday’s news that Nebraska will be joining the Big Ten, the University of Colorado is expected to announce today that they are leaving the Big 12 to join the Pac-10. UPDATE: The press conference is scheduled for Friday, according to a Boulder news source. UPDATE 2: Official on the Pac-10 website. There has been […]

Nebraska… the heart of it all?

And now, your “Conference Expansion” update. This weekend was a big bunch of doin’s across the nation, as Pac-10, Big 12, and Big T1e1en staff all held their meetings. Understandably, expansion was the topic of discussion across the board. We’ve heard what the Pac-10 has on the table: Among the options are take part of […]

In Case You Missed It…

Caught up in the height of “Braxtapalooza” today, it was possible to have overlooked some stuff that was elsewheres on the interwebs. Pac + SWC = Holy Cow. Rumors are now swirling that the Pac 10 is poised to make a run at the southernmost teams of the Big 12 in an effort to expand […]

Announcing The BBC Challenge!!!

Homerism runs deep in college football. If you’re a fan of Alabama football, you’re going to scream from them-thar mountaintops about SEC football. Same thing goes for Pac-10 football from UCLA fans, Big 12 football from Texas Longhorn partisans, etc etc etc. Since our leagues don’t get the chance to prove their worth against each […]

BBC announcement coming on Monday – and other fun stuff

The staff here at The BBC has been collaborating on a new idea, and it’s almost ready to launch. We can’t really provide any details about it at this point, because we’re not fully ready to push forward (and we don’t want anybody else to snag our idea out from under us while we’re still […]

Why is it so hard to beat the Trojans?

Apparently I’m just going to write about the Trojans for the next several weeks.  I promise I’m not overlooking the oh-so-dangerous-triple-option Navy team, but bear with me while I get my preseason jitters out of the way.  After that I’ll start taking the required shots at “Jake Locker East” (read: Tim “I’m a virgin” Tebow) […]
