What Do You Want To See? Ohio State vs. Hawaii

It’s a short week. And I’m in a crabby mood because of all the whiney SOB, I mean, SEC coaches complaining about Ohio State’s football schedule. The mighty SEC. A conference that hasn’t won a title in two years and wasn’t even in the championship game last year. Hmmmmm. Bret Bielema was among the most […]

Silver Bullet Points Elevates

It’s Wednesday, so you totally should be sobered up from your Memorial Day celebrations.  While many of y’all were enjoying your Saturday slumber,the Spring Champion’s Dinner was Tuesday, with Buckeyes being served either hot dogs or steak (neither of which were barbecued). Nothing says “family” like steak and swag, am I right?? A Leader Has […]

Commence With The Silver Bullet Points

Well, another Senior Crawl has come and gone in Columbus and we get ready to celebrate with the graduates of the Ohio State class of 2014 (including our friend Janelle!).

Silver Bullet Points Keeps Shoveling

You’re either reading this from home on a “ice day”, or from work after having dug yourself out of yet another mid-week snow storm.  Stupid freaking groundhog…  At any rate, here’s today’s soundtrack… for reasons that will hopefully soon be evident. Buckeye 411 Thank You, CB2- Sad news this week for Buckeye Senior and site […]

The Week That Were: 2013 Championship Weekend

Look, I know it’s the holiday season and all that, but I’m not feeling it just yet. Here’s some Ella if you’re in a similar mood this Monday. And so it ends… not with a bang, but a whimper. Not for everyone, but for fanbases who entered Saturday with significant postseason aspirations, the doors gently […]

The Week That Were: 10.26.13

It’s a week of ghastly costumes and other ghoulish accoutrements… so of course, we’ve got a great soundtrack for all of our friends. Well, the powers that be didn’t decide to market this weekend’s games as a “Separation Saturday”, but it ended up looking that way at the end of the day. Two more undefeateds […]

The Week That Were: 10.19.13

Happy Monday- if you’re not suspended from work for doing your job the way it’s supposed to be done, then you’ll probably enjoy today’s soundtrack. You’ve got two choices for this week’s narrative as you talk college sports around the old coffeemaker at the office this morning. Option one: “Wow, 5 top 25 SEC teams […]

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 To Gold

While camp is in session over at the WHAC, it’s important to remember that in 1936 another Buckeye was rocking the world this week. By this time that year, Jesse Owens had already won three of his four gold medals in the 100 and 200m, as well as the long jump; the fourth would come […]

Beat The Heat With Silver Bullet Points

Now that the rain has subsided, maybe the Buckeye State can enjoy the summer sunshine and higher temperatures… or as we call it in Los Angeles, “Wednesday”. Today’s soundtrack hearkens back to the halcyon days of the 80’s, before I had to actually pay for air conditioning. Back then, I thought that a Power Station […]

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. […]

Passing Along Some Silver Bullet Points

It’s not summer yet, no matter how many days of 90+ degree weather that we have in Los Angeles… but the summer blockbuster season is upon us. With that in mind, let’s revisit an SBP favorite for this week’s soundtrack. Buckeye 411 Brick Wall Not Included- which is too bad, because you’re going to want […]

Silver Bullet Points Is A Dead Giveaway

While the details are still coming out, I can’t stop thinking about how amazing the situation in Cleveland was yesterday. We need more folks like Charles Ramsey who would be willing to get involved when it’s easier to just mind their own business. Only one soundtrack possibility today, then. Buckeye 411 Mmmmm… Pancakes. Ken broke […]

Silver Bullet Points Collects Change

After a weekend in the land of authentic pizza and corrupt government, there’s really only one choice for this week’s soundtrack, particularly with all of the news coming out of B1G headquarters. Buckeye 411 Gonna’ be honest- not much in the way of news in Columbus these days, Thank Woody. Here’s some tidbits, though: Hockey […]

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 […]

Top 25: The Week in Review and The Week Ahead

Just because there wasn’t a bunch of action this week on the hardwood, doesn’t mean that there wasn’t anything interesting that happened.  Two Top 10 teams fell, one undefeated team dropped their first game, and two new teams were welcomed to the party (Sorry New Mexico, your fall from the Top 25 will keep me […]

Thursday Night Rumble: Anesthesia

The Heisman trophy has been awarded. The Buckeyes are gaining recruits. Buckeye basketball players are shooting hoops. It’s almost Christmas time. Let’s rumble! Hei-sham On Saturday the Heisman trophy was awarded to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Why did people outside the SEC region vote for Manziel? Yes, he accumulated 4600 total yards on the […]

Getting ready for the next phase of college fandom, that wonderful world filled with gifts of college hoops and bowl catastophies. As such, here’s the soundtrack for this week’s look back.
