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 […]

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 […]
