Ohio State and the NFL: Ballin’ Buckeyes, Week Two

Week 2 of the NFL season began with a barnburner in New England and a few Buckeyes had a hand in both the Jets loss and Patriots win. Santonio Holmes improved off his week 1 numbers with 3 catches for 51 yards. Nate Ebner saw some time in the Pats defensive backfield as well on […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 14

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 14, the Ohio State’s margin of victory over Notre Dame in the 2006 Fiesta Bowl on January 1st, 2006, 34-20. This game matched up Big Game Girth Charlie Weiss against the plodding, we’ll-get-there-eventually Buckeyes under Jim Tressel. Ohio State managed to plod their way to 617 total yards. Quite a […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 25

The most important game of the season for any Ohio State fan or player is the annual season ending showdown against Michigan.  Over the years the two teams have produced numerous unforgettable games with conference or national titles on the line and the 2005 showdown between 9th ranked Ohio State and 17th ranked Michigan was […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 44

Over the course of its long history, Ohio Stadium has played host to numerous memorable games, many of which have been or will be highlighted as part of our countdown to the 2013 season.  Surprisingly, despite all the major games that happened over the years, it took the stadium until its 81st year of existence […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 46

In today’s edition, we celebrate number 46, an Ohio State victory over TTUN  on  November 19th, 2005, 25-21. I could have selected another OSU win over TTUN, but the dynamics of this one are so satisfying. The Buckeyes capped off a 9-2 regular season with another beating of Michigan, this time at Ann Arbor.  The […]

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 59

In today’s edition, just like The Count, we continue the march to the season opener by celebrating Buckeye victories. No, no, we insist. Today’s contest is Ohio State’s 35-24 win over Michigan State in 2005. Having incurred their 2nd loss (and last of the season) the previous week at Penn State, the Buckeyes returned home […]

Silver Bullet Points Lays It On The Line

It’s championship week here at tBBC, and we’ll have all your B1G Tournament coverage coming up until the Buckeyes cut down the nets.  So, it only makes sense, then, to have our soundtrack for today be the latest from OSU alum and friend of the site Mekka Don, who’s scored an exclusive deal to provide […]

No Debating Silver Bullet Points

If you think the “Final Verdict” segments of College Gameday are amazing places for rhetoric and logic, you’re probably excited for the beginning of the Presidential Debates tonight.  Me? I’d rather argue about college sports… compared to politics, the BCS makes sense. Buckeye 411 Clothing, Part One- Never ones to miss the obvious, the Athletic […]

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 […]

Silver Bullet Points Don't Need No Stinking Badges

Buckeye 411 Injury Report- Shugarts foot will continue to be a problem, Stoneburner is still probable, Mike Adams has violent stomach flu. Here’s hoping that it won’t be the strain that went through the Buckeyes last year (no pun intended). Injury Report, the Sequel- When asked, Coach Tressel commented that Terrell Pryor is “ready” to […]

Four he's a jolly good fellow…

scene: My house, immediately following Super Bowl XLIII *phone rings* Me: Hello? Mom: Hi, honey… did you watch the big game? Me: Of course. Everyone’s here, and we just finished the chili. Mom: Wasn’t it exciting? With the running and stuff? Me: Yup. Especially the stuff part, mom. Mom: I was really hoping that that […]

Buckeyes In The Fantasy World

If you’re like most football fans you probably play some form of fantasy football.  It gives me the ability to have a rooting interest in any NFL game I watch.  I also like to have hometown players on my team but since I live in Cleveland that’s not such a good idea.  So if you’re […]

"The Catch" enters the countdown

Ah, Anthony Gonzalez….we do love you so. The picture you see here was taken in the first two minutes of the game in 2004. The struggling Buckeyes were not expected to do much against #7 Michigan, but nobody told that to the boys in the uniforms. Gonzalez caught a 68-yard pass early on for a […]

Bobby Carpenter is going to eat your lunch

Is was just a few short years ago that a trio of linebackers roamed the middle of our defense, and they were vicious. A.J. Hawk, Anthony Schlegel, and today’s hero, Bobby Carpenter. These three were easily the best batch of men to play LB at the same time for Ohio State (although we’re pretty sure […]
