Here at tBBC we wanted to take a moment and reflect on the highs and lows from the past year, […]

The Week That Were: 10.20.12

Ah, fall… the wind turns brisk and in Los Angeles the birds turn colors and fall from the trees (ht: David Letterman). We talked last week about “pumpkinitis” that’s sweeping the country… some people are taking it seriously. Instead of subjecting yourself to such a task, take time to kick back with some new tunes […]

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 […]

The Week That Were: 09.22.12

And now, it gets real. Conference season. No more cupcakes… although, that hasn’t worked out all that well for a lot of teams.  Today’s soundtrack is from this week’s release, and was chosen

Silver Bullet Points Braces For Impact

Yup, it’s that week again- we find ourselves looking to the skies and hoping for an astronomical event to head toward… let’s see… this year the game is in South Bend, so that will do just fine. Just think, if Notre Dame’s previous coach was still on the sidelines, there just might be enough gravitational […]

Silver Bullet Points Has Read The Published Reports

Another Wednesday, another mainstream media member making less than accurately informed statements about issues they think they understand… Buckeye 411 Hall? Maybe- This week, Jordan Hall was cleared physically to play by the OSU medical staff, but the jury is still out on how “ready” he is- game speed, etc. Tuesday was a testing day, […]

The Week That Were: Opening Weekend 2012

Sure, there’s games on Monday, but the weekend has been so amazing that we just couldn’t wait to get back in the saddle for our reflections on the games of note.  Plus, are we really all that excited about a game that’s all technical and stuff?  I thought not.  Obvious choice for this week’s soundtrack… […]

Silver Bullet Points Has Been To The Mountaintop

On Tuesday, I was impressed by Danny from 11W posting his “OHIO” photo from the top of Mt. Baker, for a couple of reasons. First, I’ve lived in WA and skied at Baker all the time. Second, I was hoping to have a similar photo from the top of Mt. Whitney under my belt by […]

Buckeye 411 Vested Interest– Hopefully you were able to check out our Monday series honoring Coach Tressel, particularly the articles from those who knew […]

Conference Expansion Looking to Explode

Once the B1G had added Nebraska as their twelth member in the Summer of 2010, the conference expansion discussion found itself quietly simmering in the other room – out of sight, but not entirely out of mind. Every once in a while, not surprisingly, someone has to get up and stir the pot a little. […]

Silver Bullet Points Hears The Whispers

Buckeye 411 Shower Ends Sweat- This “Duh!” headline actually points to an interesting story Tuesday about why former Buckeye Andrew Sweat chose to end his bid at a professional career. According to the Dispatch, Sweat slipped in the shower the morning that mini-camp was to start and experienced concussive-like symptoms similar to what he wrestled […]

The Week That Were: 11.05.11

Once again, I was wandering around the wilderness on gameday, which explains why Stevie makes a repeat appearance as our soundtrack for “The Review Of The Century”: NOTE- Scroll down for our comments regarding Penn State coverage. Well, let’s get right to it… the […]

LSU/Alabama- The Forgotten

This week, the hyperbole has kicked into full gear as the top two teams in the nation play each other in what must certainly be the “Game Of The Millennium!!1!11!!”.
