Even though tweeting at the punter is a bad idea, is making a T that pokes fun at the kid in the stands any different?

What Do You Want To See? Michigan

It’s time. It’s The Game. Nothing else matters. If OSU wins one game all year, it must be this one. If OSU loses one game all year, it must NOT be this one. The Buckeyes appear to be in a little bit of dysfunction with at least one player criticizing the play calling publicly and […]

What Do You Want To See? Michigan State

Well, I guess it’s “put up or shut up” time for the Buckeyes. We have been hearing a lot about how OSU plays down to its level of competition and only gets up for the Big Boys.  The next two weeks the boys are as big as they come as OSU plays Michigan State and […]

Sad UM Fan

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 […]


Pick ‘Em: Going Through The Motions

The obese female has exercised her vocal chords. Mathematically I was still alive going into last week but I had to make my move. And I needed some help from the teams I picked. Not happening. It was actually closer than I anticipated. I took all the teams Ken picked to lose except Ohio State. […]

What Do You Want to See On Saturday? Hoosiers

Now this is a legitimate trap game. Big win on the road last week against a tough, ranked opponent and The Game looming next week. Ohio State can’t lose focus. Can’t afford a 7 or even a 10-point win. Need to kick Indiana back to Bloomington with authority. Need to put up 50 or 60 […]

Week 10 Pick ‘Em: It’s About Over

OK. I have to be honest. I have a snowball’s chance. My one-year reign is about over. I’m not just going through the motions but it’s going to take a minor miracle for me to comeback and beat Ken. Short of him missing a week or doing something completely stoopid, he will probably be defending […]

Pick ‘Em Week 9: It ain’t over till it’s over

Oy. That’s about all I can say at this point. Northwestern let me down again and I sit seven games behind Ken in my quest to repeat as the Pick ‘Em champion. I’m not giving up. It ain’t over yet. But I do have my work cut out for me. Ken was perfect last week, […]

Mirror Lake

Are You Not Entertained? Idle Week

Hooray. The Buckeyes play again this week. These non-playing weeks really make for a looooooooong weekend. It’s worse when teams I despise win. Anyhoo, our crack (pot) staff had an agenda for the weekend. Let’s see how things went down, starting with me. Upsets: Let’s see some more top SEC teams go down: Auburn lost. That’s always a […]

Pick ‘Em Week 6: Defending Champ Sinking

Well, what can I say? I’m not doing so well this year. But there is plenty of time for me to catch up. I just can’t afford to fall too much farther behind. Ken was nearly perfect, missing only on Penn State. Nice call on the Minnesota win over TTUN. I missed on TTUN, Penn […]


Are You Not Entertained? Bye Week Blues

No more off weeks please. Didn’t know what to do with myself without Buckeye football. (Ed: One more, 10.11) There were some good games. If anything, we discovered that there is not one clear-cut “best team” in the country. Alabama struggled at home against Florida. Florida State showed how important Jameis Winston really is to […]


Rumblin’, Stumblin’, Bumblin': National Edition

Sometimes I will have a very simple idea and for some reason it will turn to gold almost overnight. Huge thanks to Doty Sr. for helping me last week and to see that it’s always better when you have company over for supper so to speak, so here we go as my guests entertain you, […]

Pick ’em week 3: Defending champ falling behind

OK, this is getting serious now. After a horrible week of picking by yours truly I find myself three games behind. I know it’s early. Stay positive. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I will win. I believe that I […]

Pick ’em Week 3: Newbie still leading (but not for long)

When does basketball season start? At least I predicted that Illinois would be on upset alert. Not sure how the Illini survived. Since we picked the same games last week, I wasn’t able to gain any ground on Ken and his soon-t0-be erased one-game lead. We nailed the Penn State, Wisconsin, Rutgers, Illinois, Maryland, Nebraska, […]

Big Dance Wide Open

The decisions have been made. The picks are in. It’s anybody’s NCAA Tournament. Really. Ohio State has a tough, but winnable draw. OSU is the No. 6 seed in the South and will play the Dayton Flyers, who many thought would be in the First Four, in Buffalo. The Flyers made it without having to play […]

And The Silver Bullet Points Go To…

We lost a great one on Monday, and another iconic figure on Tuesday.  Today’s soundtrack hopes that these guys are both on a better path, if you can dig it. Buckeye 411 Birthday Wishes- Belated, sure, but happy birthday to Aaron Craft and Michael Bennett… I’d love to be a fly on the wall for […]

Buckeyes Gear Up For Clash With Wolverines

The news broke last week that tonight would be a very special game for Ohio State… as if the hoops version of The Game needed any extra attention. With the Wolverines, Spartans, and Badgers all falling over the past week, tonight’s matchup against That Team Up North has extra importance- A win by the Buckeyes […]

Pick 'em: The last week?

It’s the last week of the regular season and just like when we started our pick ’em we are tied. Last week’s dud by Gary allowed me to tie it up. I was sooooooo close to taking Iowa over Michigan but I didn’t want to risk it. Oops. Gary went 3-3 last week, picking OSU, […]

The Week That Were: 11.23.13

Happy Thanksgiving week! Here’s a little music to get you ready for Thursday… and another ditty to prep you for Saturday. You know what’s interesting about college sports? Call it “the circle of life”, call it “karma” (@FightOnTwist pointed out earlier in November, Manziel is an amazing quarterback, but his interceptions often lead to opposing […]

Pick 'em: Closing the gap

The countdown begins. To quote The Holy Grail, my favorite Monty Python movie,  “Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three.” We have three weeks left in the regular season and our Pick ‘Em just got very interesting. Gary’s lead over me is down to just […]
