Are You Not Entertained? The Game

I know I echo the thoughts of all Buckeye fans when I say I wish a speedy recovery to JT Barrett and hope he returns next year better than ever. Despite all the bad stuff, hey everyone, WE BEAT MICHIGAN, AGAIN!! Turn that frown upside down. We will be fine with Cardale Jones. I admit, […]

Goodnight, Brady

What Do You Want To See On Saturday: The Game

I don’t know about you but I’ve waited all season for this game. Because *ichigan has been so bad lately, the B1G division title is not up for grabs. Ohio State already has that crown and a berth in the championship game. But a larger prize awaits: A spot in the first football playoff. The […]

TBDBITL Report: Indiana, Canned Music, and A Special Tradition

The bad weather and a not highly rated opponent may have kept many people away from Ohio Stadium on Saturday but it takes a lot more than that to keep the Ohio State University Marching Band from putting on a great show.

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.

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. […]
