The Week That Were: 10.15.11

Today, we join with racing fans in mourning the loss of Indianapolis 500 champion Dan Wheldon. As such, this week’s soundtrack has a bit of a somber tone. We give ESPN/ABC a lot of criticism, but they got this one right– Thoughts and prayers with his family and friends. This week was very very special […]

Silver Bullet Points Hunts Tatanka

tBBC Rewind – Compare and Contrast: NCAA Allegations

For my contribution to the 5th birthday of our humble blog, I reach into the not-so-distant past to grab one of my favorite works. It was absolutely a labor of love, and a lot of fans from many different parts of the college football landscape seemed to love it too. This one was so wildly […]

The Week That Were: 9.10.11

This week’s journey back through the world of college sports is a bit more subdued than usual- due, in part, to the lack of “marquee” games, but mostly due to perspective. There are lots of things in life that are important… and college sports are among them. But today and yesterday and this past week, […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets More Ammunition

First glance at NLOID; both in Columbus and elsewheres. Buckeye 411 Tress Talk– Video from today’s Signing Day wrapup, in it’s entirety. Our friends over at 11 Warriors have it broken down even better with individual athlete interviews. Stylin’ and Profilin’– Best dressed recruit award goes to Ron Tanner, styling the bow tie and braces. […]

Gamecocks fall 79-57 to Buckeyes

The South Carolina Gamecocks arrived on a cold wintery day in Columbus and got even more than a cold reception in the Schott.  The Buckeyes ran up a 30 point lead before letting it slip slightly to the only slightly less impressive 79-57 final.  Jared Sullinger was, as usual, the player of the game for […]

Silver Bullet Points Looks Ahead

No press conference this week, but we do have Tress’ thoughts from after The Game and so forth Buckeye 411 Award Winners- Congrats to the members of the Ohio State team who were honored with All Big Ten accolades by the conference’s coaches. The Buckeyes led the conference with ten winners, including first team Boom […]

The Week That Were: 11.13.10

Time once again to take a look back at all the fancy doin’s in the realm of college football.  This week’s theme music reminds you to not call it a comeback… Some sad news to end the weekend: Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Southern Miss players who were shot last night following […]

The Week That Were: 10.16.10

Yup, it was a difficult weekend… but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a spot of fun, right? Not a good Saturday around the old Casa Del Mali, which started when Nebraska found out that the option doesn’t work against a defense with speed. This would normally be the part where I pointed out that […]

The Week That Were: 10.09.10

This weeks’ post comes with a soundtrack: Not all that original, so if you want to get your “Gospel” on and hear the song that was going through my head all day yesterday, this is the link for you. Almost perfect. Like a no-hitter blown at the last minute, yesterday was this close to being […]

The Week That Were- 9.11.10

Once again, it’s time for a quick tour de farce around the week in college football. You know, in case you don’t have ESPN and this is the only website you read (as it should be). Today’s musical accompaniment: This amazing cover. Good luck getting it out of your head during the TPS meeting. James […]

What We Did On Summer Vacation- NCAA Edition

Summer is almost over, bringing with it a mixture of disappointment from schoolkids and excitement for college football fans. This guy, however, is probably going to have the same experience, summer or fall. Footage from someone we know? Hard to tell for sure… What we do know, though, is that it has been a pretty […]

“Agentpalooza” worse than originally believed?

Many of you have probably run into discussions of “Agentpalooza”, “Agentgate” or “Agent Orange” as 11W prefers to think of it.  For those that haven’t, the NCAA uncovered activities of players from Alabama, UNC, Georgia and South Carolina that suggested they had made illicit contact with sports agents.  The premise is that an agent, or […]

John Cooper remembered – And NOT in a good way

This morning, our old friends at Eleven Warriors published a brilliant piece on John Cooper and his recent induction in the College Football Hall Of Fame. Of course, you can’t write a Cooper-based piece with using the numbers 2, 10, and 1. 11W did that. Sprinkled around the article is a list of Coop’s accomplishments, […]

If you can read this, you're not from an SEC state

UPDATE – Please read this post c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y…it discusses the educational systems of each state, and how well the states educate (or don’t educate) their young minds.  It has deep meaning that could possibly explain the stupid, inbred minds which are unable to comprehend simple matters (in other words, southerners).  If you are a fan of […]

Why Ohio State will win the Fiesta Bowl

OK, so we’ve all seen the “teh Big Ten suuuucks” comments all over the place, and we know that nobody outside of this glorious state isn’t giving the Buckeyes a chance in hell tomorrow night.  But let’s take a step back from the bash-fest and discuss what I think will happen in Arizona. Ohio State […]
