Heisman-winning quarterback days left!

There isn’t a better choice than Mr. Troy Smith to take us into the final 10 days of the countdown.  We haven’t seen Troy yet on the Top 25 Buckeyes of the Decade list, but you know he’s got to be on there. Where will he finish in the ranking?  There are only a few […]

Five… and counting

Since we’ve entered “game week”, it would make sense to highlight Michael Wiley or the great James Laughlin, 1979 team MVP. Actually, since Jim’s blocked punt in the 1979 MACh1gAAn game led to another loss by TTUN, and since we seem to be making a lot of friends from “bluer” websites, let’s take day five […]

Troy Smith is way, way better than you

We had a couple of interesting pieces to publish today, so the countdown had to wait until the street lights went on….thanks for your patience! There’s only ten days left until the Ohio State Buckeyes take the field for the opening game of the 2009 season.  Now is the time that you begin to literally […]

Buckeyes In The Fantasy World

If you’re like most football fans you probably play some form of fantasy football.  It gives me the ability to have a rooting interest in any NFL game I watch.  I also like to have hometown players on my team but since I live in Cleveland that’s not such a good idea.  So if you’re […]

"The Catch" enters the countdown

Ah, Anthony Gonzalez….we do love you so. The picture you see here was taken in the first two minutes of the game in 2004. The struggling Buckeyes were not expected to do much against #7 Michigan, but nobody told that to the boys in the uniforms. Gonzalez caught a 68-yard pass early on for a […]

Class Act

As we continue our countdown until gameday, Jeff was kind enough to let me highlight someone other than a kicker. The training wheels are off, I guess. Day seventeen brings us a recent grad- quarterback Todd Boeckman. Todd’s two years personify the expression “grace under pressure”. As a gray shirted junior, he was asked to […]

John Borton is finally in the Hall Of Fame

Nearly three years ago, I began this blog for multiple reasons, all of which had to do with my love of Ohio state football. One of those reasons, as I stated in my inaugural post, was a quarterback from the 50′s named John Borton. In the mid-to-late 80s, I became friends with a wonderful person […]

Bobby Carpenter is going to eat your lunch

Is was just a few short years ago that a trio of linebackers roamed the middle of our defense, and they were vicious. A.J. Hawk, Anthony Schlegel, and today’s hero, Bobby Carpenter. These three were easily the best batch of men to play LB at the same time for Ohio State (although we’re pretty sure […]

Game number 9!

First, a couple of quick announcements…. -No third video this week. I had to make a choice last night on what to do with my evening. I chose playing board games with my daughter (and my friend Janessa), and decided that two videos was enough for the week. -I actually got a full night’s sleep […]

The first…and SECOND…of three new videos are here!!!

As promised earlier today, I have begun processing three new Ohio State highlight videos. The first one is now complete, and is a Troy Smith tribute. And now, here is the SECOND new video, just finished this morning! BBC note – Sorry, YouTube has blocked the audio from “Boom”. Fuckers. The final video should be […]

Lllloyd Carr skirts the rules of decency, loses

I’ve gotta be honest, I am JUST NOW hearing about this….but apparently, there’s a little bit of drama and a whole lot of “what, I didn’t see anything” coming out of Ann Arbor, Michigan these days. MotSaG has the story down in a nice summary, but here’s a quick lowdown; WR Adrian Arrington was drinking […]

"Are we 11-0 already?", updated…..

Three weeks ago, I asked the question “Are we 11-0 already?”. At the time, we were actually 5-0, but were facing a string of 6 consecutive weak opponents. I took criticism and praise for suggesting this. Around The Oval agreed with me immediately, while personal friends claimed I was tempting fate and daring it to […]

Gameday observations

<—–This is us in our seats yesterday Usually, I avoid discussion on how we looked after the fact, but since SO many of you were unable to watch the Ohio State/Indiana game, I’ll give my personal opinion from my seat in 18-B. The first two possessions sucked ass. Awful on every count. Troy missed his […]

Time to start making Ohio State/Michigan comparisons

Michigan State’s out of the way. Four lightweights in front of us. The next test is Michigan. In my opinion (and about half the country’s as well), these two teams are on a collision course to be #1 and #2 on November 18th. I watched ABC tonight and heard about the overpowering defense of Michigan […]

Iowa's biggest weakness

Jim Tressel and company does not need me to tell them what Iowa’s weaknesses are. They already know. But since I did the research, I’d better spread the knowledge, because who knows….maybe one of my readers has no idea what that weakness might be. It’s their run defense. Iowa is not capable of slowing down […]
