I’m sorry for the lack of a TBDBITL update last week but I was traveling in New Zealand for a week and Sauron apparently did not want me to have a good internet connection to upload the article. This week the TBDBITL Report is back with a special, longer version to cover everything that happened […]

TBDBITL Report: A Trip to Cleveland

The Ohio State football team pulled off a narrow victory over Penn State last week and playing in front of a hostile PSU crowd most likely played a role in the team struggling at times. In such a harsh road environment, the team needed any bit of support they could get from the Buckeye faithful. […]

Are You Not Entertained? Penn State

Whew! That’s all I have to say after a near debacle in Happy Valley. Not sure how Ohio State lost a 17-0 lead and the momentum … well, I kind of know but J.T. Barrett has been playing so well I don’t want to throw it all on him and his pick-six. But I digress. […]

When the Ohio State football team headed to Maryland last Saturday, the marching band did not accompany them. While some people online had speculated that this was possibly due to the firing of former director Jonathan Waters and the allegations about the marching band culture made in the Glaros Report, that was not the case. […]

TBDBITL Report: Kent State Recap – Jon Waters Returns

‘Jon Waters Returns’, I’ve been hoping to write those words in the title of an article for almost two months. While Waters did return to Ohio Stadium last weekend, it wasn’t as director of the Ohio State University Marching Band; I still hope to write those three words again at some point for that reason.

Are You Not Entertained? Kent State

Well that was much better. Although I’m sure some folks will still complain despite thrashing Clark Kent State 66-0. Could have been a lot worse. I don’t see too much to be disappointed about. A win: We got that. And then some. 250 rushing yards: With 34 to spare. At least 200 passing yards: Had […]
