Sunday Morning Coffee: October 15, 1916

The wind whistled sharply as the sun began to rise on this crisp Sunday morning. John Wilce rolled over from his slumber, having not slept well at all. His night had been dominated with recalling the day before.  It had indeed been an event. “Coffee?” He whispered to his sleeping wife, Minerva, who had the blanket […]

Making The List: Peter “Pete” George

In our pursuit to bring to focus some of the great past names of athletics from The Ohio State University in Making the List, often names are missed – even intended to bring out at another time … but the grand tool of forgetfulness arrives and good intent vanishes as it arrives to another worthy […]

No so long after announcing his return to the New England Patriots in a two-year extension deal that lands him a million-plus each year Nate Ebner will be missing training camp this summer as he heads to Brazil as a member of the USA Rugby Team. Bill Belichick, Ebner recalls, was welcoming of his pursuit […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: May 04, 1890

The Sunday morning breeze blasted through the untidy room. The sun’s brightness also began its commanding appearance. It shone directly onto the face of Alexander Lilley, who rolled to his side in an attempt to rid the nuisance and gather a few extra moments of sleep. He knew he’d be hearing a knock soon enough […]

Making The List: Jim Reeder

This week let’s journey into baseball. The Buckeyes had some fantastic players in the wondrous world played on a diamond. Thus far in our journey to bring back a focus on past athletes from The Ohio State University – in baseball – we took a look at Frank Howard (also a basketball star) and Nick […]

Making The List: Mark Coleman

For this week’s Making the List I have decided to have some fun. There are so many Buckeyes in a host of sports that have been great in the sport of which they participated that are deserving of recognition. Some of these great athletes slide from the notice they justifiably have earned behind some of […]

Let’s Talk Ohio State Women’s Rugby in 2016

The summer is here. We all feel the heat.  It will only get hotter.  Relief is seemingly only found in a swift dive into a pool, or an ice cold drink (preferably pool side).  The sports of choice to engage in, either watching or playing is baseball, or softball. But I have a hint of […]

Making The List: Glenn Ashby Davis

The Olympics in Rio de Janeiro will soon be upon us. The World will be watching. National pride will be at feverish pitches – everywhere – all over the globe. Personally when I think of the Summer Olympics I think of Track and Field. This summarizes why I feel the importance to pick a great […]

Making The List: William “Bill” Smith

There are many routes we could take this week for Making the List. But summer’s sweltering heat has me thinking of a pool, or more specifically, swimming. I previously mentioned two Great Buckeyes in the swimmers category, Yoshi Oyakawa, and legendary coach Mike Pepe. I do know that the Buckeyes had many great swimmers in […]

Making The List: Doug Beal

This week we will honor the Men’s Volleyball Program. They are the 2016 National Champions. So I find a necessity to honor one of the Greats of The Ohio State University Volleyball Program – and there is indeed quite a few I could choose from. Since 1968, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team has been […]

Thank You Ken Kohl

I find it necessary to write about one of tBBC’s own. By no means is it a fluff piece of back-patting of colleagues. Of recent a colleague of ours here at tBBC retired – bringing a well deserved focus on himself and his family. Ken was a great colleague and in my case mentor. Ken […]

Making the list: Sam Marder

The season for Softball is over for the Buckeyes. They finished up the year 34-20-1 overall and were 13-9-1 in Big Ten play. Their season came to a screeching halt in Knoxville on May 22 in a loss to Tennessee 10-1. But we aren’t here to discuss that. They had a fantastic year and deserve […]

Making The List: John Cook

I haven’t chosen many golfers for Making the List, have I? The second installment of this column, following the great Jesse Owens, I did pick Jack Nicklaus… No golfers since then. Shame on me! The Ohio State University has had a host of wonderful, talented, and great golfers. John Cook was one of them. John […]
