Pick ‘Em Week 5: Status Quo

Well, somehow I missed a week and nobody knew. We had week 3 twice and skipped week 4. Hmmm. Anywho,  after last week’s debacle of picking we have managed to maintain the Status Quo. Ken went 9-4. I went 9-4. I picked Iowa right. He didn’t. Ken picked Maryland right. I didn’t. We both got […]

Pick ‘em week 3: Defending champ falling behind

OK, this is getting serious now. After a horrible week of picking by yours truly I find myself three games behind. I know it’s early. Stay positive. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I […]

Pick ‘em Week 3: Newbie still leading (but not for long)

When does basketball season start? At least I predicted that Illinois would be on upset alert. Not sure how the Illini survived. Since we picked the same games last week, I wasn’t able to gain any ground on Ken and his soon-t0-be erased one-game lead. We nailed the Penn State, Wisconsin, Rutgers, Illinois, Maryland, Nebraska, […]

Silver Bullet Points Provide Distraction

Look, I know that today’s SBP is the girl that you’re dancing with while you’re looking around the club for that special someone else.  I can live with that, and assure you that the news you’re refreshing your computer for will be here around… say… 10:00 or so. In the meantime this is stuck in […]

Silver Bullet Points Brushes Up

We’re in post-draft funk here at SBP… also brought on by recent trips to the orthodontist. Wheee.  That also explains why our soundtrack is one of Steve Martin’s lesser known works… his new stuff is much different. Buckeye 411 Game Time! No, we’re not at kickoff yet… dangit.  But today we found out that the […]

There was a lot […]

Silver Bullet Points Dethaws

Well, given the news today in college sports and elsewhere, I think I’ve got a couple of soundtrack offerings that will draw it all together.  Stay warm people!!

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 Is Recovering Nicely

After a weekend filled with excitement and disappointment, it’s a bit of a quiet mood at tBBC headquarters. We like baseball, and know that OSU sports are amazing even if not the “got to be on television” variety, but I’d be lying if I didn’t confess that there’s a bit of a let down these […]

Buckeye 411 “One time”-  Monday was the reveal of the fourth edition of Nike’s “special” uniforms, and the third time it’s been unleashed for The Game.

The Week That Were: 11.17.12

We’re going to do things just a little bit differently this week, given all of the amazing news and events that happened this past weekend. So, this will be part Silver Bullet Points, part Monday Morning Commentary, and the usual chunk of random observations from Saturday’s events in the world of college football.  Here’s something […]

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 […]
