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 […]

tBBC Pick 'Em: Week Five

OK, I’m starting to feel a little nauseated. This pick ‘em thing is not working out like I planned. I’m losing. Of course I expected to win. Who expects to lose other than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Let’s recap our last week of picks, which was two weeks ago. Took a week off to attend […]

tBBC Pick 'Em: Even After Week One

They say tying is like kissing your sister. Pucker up. That’s where we stand after one week of our head-to-head pick. Yours truly and Gary were correcting in picking Ohio State and Illinois to win last week. I correctly picked Iowa winning at Minnesota but was disappointed in the effort of Purdue as Gary was […]

Passing Along Some Silver Bullet Points

It’s not summer yet, no matter how many days of 90+ degree weather that we have in Los Angeles… but the summer blockbuster season is upon us. With that in mind, let’s revisit an SBP favorite for this week’s soundtrack. Buckeye 411 Brick Wall Not Included- which is too bad, because you’re going to want […]

Silver Bullet Points' Gots Questions

Lotta stuff rattling around the ol’ brainpan the last couple of days… sometimes it’s good to have a bit of distraction from the harshness of our realities. Here’s the song that’s been stuck in my subconscious… Buckeye 411 Our Long National Nightmare Is Over, Part One- Braxton’s hair is back to normal. Whew. Making Friends […]

2013 March Madness Bracketology: South Region

Have you filled out your brackets for the Tournament Challenge yet? Here’s our last take on the regional matchups. The South Region is chock full of talent and it could make an argument for being the toughest out of all four regions. It could also be anyone’s to win headed to the Final Four with a four […]

B1G Men's Tournament Live Thread: Day Two

#3 Michigan State versus #6 Iowa Iowa used a quick start and some of Sparty’s own medicine to jump out to a 30-20 lead at halftime.  The Hawkeye’s quick start opened a double digit lead but Michigan State settled down and was able to get the lead trimmed in the middle of the half.  Iowa […]

What do you Want to see on Saturday? Skunk Weasel Edition

WVaBuckeye Rattle the QB.No matter who is under center, turn the Silver Bullets loose early and get them rattled. Neither has faced a D, save for Alabama, that will provide the pressure and coverage the Buckeyes will. John Simon tied an Ohio State record for sacks in a game last week, and he’s hungry for […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 13

As we head into the final weekend of B1G play before the title game next weekend, the Buckeyes sit atop the Leaders Division all alone after clinching on the road at Madison. Not exactly the way the Buckeyes envisioned winning, but they got it done in OT. Let’s take a look at the results from last weekend across the […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 12

It’s a great thing that I decided to stop keeping record of my success, or lack there of, according to the weekly weak picks. I was on my way to my first ever ‘ofer and was saved by the Cornhuskers. #24 Northwestern @ TTUN. Prediction Nerds 21 to 17; WRONG TTUN 38-31  Purdue @ Iowa.  Prediction Iowa 16 to 10; […]
