Memories of Ann Arbor – My personal review of The Game

I’ve missed you all.  Did you all get along while I was out of town? You saw the game, you know how it went down.  There’s not much that I can add to the actual contest between Ohio State and Michigan.  We could go over each and every play (which we just might), but it’s […]

The Week That Were: 9.26.09

Finishing what Jeff started, as we do every week. Here’s this week’s soundtrack/music to piss off the people in the cubicle next to you. Every season, there’s one or two weeks that just screw up everything. From the Vegas lines, to the “pundit’s choices”, to alumni plans for Bowl Game Tailgating, and even the coaching […]

The Week That Were: 9.19.09

previously on TWTW… Here’s the soundtrack for today’s journey in the past. And no, unlike some people, it’s not really Journey. Arrr, yesterday’s games fell on the national holiday o’ “Talk Like a Pirate Day“. Should we be surprised, then, that the upset o’ the day happened at a place whar people show up in […]

Monday in SoCal

So… Vegas has posted the odds, and the Buckeyes are 7 point underdogs. At home. Which is too low, if you ask the folks hereabouts. I almost had a “friend” talked into giving me three touchdowns (just to see how high he’d go), but he “came to his senses” and said “I couldn’t give you […]

Michigan embarrassed again. Dear God, don't let this stop…..

ESPN just announced that Rich Rodriquez has been linked to a booster that is banned by the NCAA. COLUMBIA, S.C. — One of the business partners involved in the real estate venture at the root of a federal lawsuit against Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez is an accused felon and banned Clemson University booster. The partner, […]

MGoBlog ready to "disappear" again….

Immediately following the 2007 loss to Appalachian State, the most prominent Michigan blog, MGoBlog did the right thing and they took their lumps like men. Oh, wait… they didnt. They shut down the site for two full days, much like what you’d expect out of complete cowards. Expect similar behavior very very soon…..breaking news has […]

Mid-day wrapup

Lots to discuss, so here we go; On Monday morning, we’ll be announcing our new experiment/project that we hope will settle a lot of arguments regarding which NCAA conference reigns supreme.  Check with us Monday and see what you think….. ————————- We’ve mentioned this here before, but let’s remind ticket-holders again – there is a […]

BBC announcement coming on Monday – and other fun stuff

The staff here at The BBC has been collaborating on a new idea, and it’s almost ready to launch. We can’t really provide any details about it at this point, because we’re not fully ready to push forward (and we don’t want anybody else to snag our idea out from under us while we’re still […]

The changing mood of a douchebag

Last week, we saw the mugshot of one Ralph Gray Decker.  His charge was for simple battery.  This was his mugshot at the time; He looked kinda smug….as if he were proud of his attack on a Buckeye player.  Lots of comments across the internet discussed how they’d like to smack that smile off his […]

Decker officially behind bars, charged with felony

Again with the breaking news, Ken Gordon of the Columbus Dispatch reports that Ralph Gray Decker has had his simple battery charge upgraded to a felony and is now in jail. Prosecutors last week said they were pursuing a felony charge based on the seriousness of Moeller’s injuries. And this morning, at 12:12 to be […]

"He Who Shall Not Be Named" has his day

In 2008, The Buckeye Battle Cry selected Andre Amos as our honoree for Day #13, and a few readers were disappointed over the decision. The argument over excluding Maurice Clarett was that you cannot ignore the on-field success Clarett brought just because he was an off-field jackass. One year later, we’re convinced. Men Of The […]

Playing with fire and skirting the issue

Over the past two days, a lot of information has come forward about Ralph Gray Decker.  A lot of discussion has been laid out about it as well. I think it’s important to say this now….Decker’s a lowlife and deserves to rot for what he has done.  But it’s not up to us to execute […]

Public Enemy #1

No, this is not a post about how much I love a rap band from the 80s. It’s an update on what MaliBuckeye published an hour ago. Meet Ralph Gray Decker. According to some great journalistic work by Ken Gordon of the Columbus Dispatch, he’s the guy who assaulted Tyler Moeller in July, which led […]

Tyler Moeller's mother issues statement re: assault

Amy Moeller, mother of LB Tyler Moeller has issued a statement through Ohio State regarding the assault on her son in July. Something worth noting in the statement; We were on a family vacation in Florida, celebrating his grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary following the end of the OSU summer quarter. On the first evening of […]

"Those who stay will still be losers"

Back in the late 1960s, Michigan picked up a new head coach, some guy by the name of Schembechler. His coaching style irritated a lot of the people at Michigan. He worked his kids like dogs. Players left the team in droves. But Bo had a method to his madness. He was going to whip […]
