The Week That Were: 9.15.13

Where to start, where to start. Alabama got revenge, Michigan almost got upset by Akron, Texas still can’t play defense and Nebraska, well, Bo Pelini better have his resume updated. But we must start with the odd finish to the Wisconsin-Arizona State game in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The Sun Devils led 32-30 […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Apocalyptical

This could quite possibly be the last SBP of… well… forever. The Mayans have spoken… or the Aztecs, I always get them confused. So, of course there’s only one soundtrack for the moment… it’s been a good ride. Buckeye 411 Something Significant- As exciting as this season was, I’d be willing to bet that the […]

The Week That Were: 11.10.12

Oh, college football… How I love you!! Well, that happened. While a lot of people were saying that Alabama was ripe for a loss against a Texas A&M team that’s been playing really well over the past few weeks, most of this felt like lip service. You know, the kind of things that ESPN makes […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 11

Took a week off to get caught up on a lot of things and because there was so much going on around tBBC with basketball jumping into the mix. No need to revisit the results of two weeks ago as we are in the home stretch! I will begin to cover the national race for […]

The Week That Were: 10.13.12

Here we are, mid-October, when everything starts getting pumpkin flavored for better or worse. So, you’ve got two choices for soundtracks this week, via the “full albums” on Youtube- Something October-ish, or something more Pumpkiny. Salud. Ah, Texas… where dreams go to die.  Three of the most interesting storylines this week came Deep In The […]

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: 9.8.12

This week’s soundtrack is colorful, but has a bit of a different taste to it: trust me, it makes total sense in the grand scheme of things.  Enjoy… language warning. There’s no denying it… one group of conference-mates had an incredibly difficult Saturday. Positioned for excellence, and featured in a number of nationally significant matchups, […]

Picks for the Weak: Week 2

After week one I am way down the list and am rethinking my position as an “expert” picker for this pool! Anyhow, as it is I do not have a choice because I drew the short straw in our last office meeting and the current status of our picketing union has caused me more work. My […]

tBBC Conference Cavalcade: SEC

Continuing our look around the nation, Tim takes a quick look at the winner of the last eleventy BCS championships. If you’re a fan of one of these programs, be sure to have someone read this for you (note: does not apply to Vanderbilt). How does the conference fall in the national rankings? How likely […]

The Week That Were: 11.05.11

The Week That Were looks at the hyperbolic and the unexpected. 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 […]

Picks for the Weak: Week 9

Picks For The Weak: Week 6

I’m pretty sure that was the worst week of College Football picks for this crew in the five years of it’s existence. Maybe I’m over-exaggerating, but 75% of those who help me out with our Picks were at 0-5 as we headed into the evening on Saturday. Thanks to the Mustangs, I picked up some […]

The Week That Were: 10.01.11

Given their recent decision to disband, several people recommended REM tunes for this week’s soundtrack, from the obvious to the more fatalistic. However, we like to keep it upbeat here at TWTW, so this week’s post was written with this R&B classic in mind. In many ways, this was a weekend to forget, as eight […]

Picks for the Weak: Week Four

It’s week four of the college football season, and you weaklings are gaining strength. No, it’s not from our expert prespective… Yeah, no. This week, us college football fans get our inspiration for top notch picks by pumping ice water in our veins! We might be in Death Valley, but it’s our time to choose […]
