The Week That Were: 11.29.14

Welcome to the first of December… and no, it’s not freaking time to play Christmas music yet. Here’s something more appropriate. or this, or this (Savor the ironic title)… Given the news of the last 48 hours, though, it seems a bit much to be celebrating the stupidity and amazement that comes each college football […]

The Week That Were: 11.22.14

Lotta options for our soundtrack today, so we’ll give you a number of choices to enjoy during your Monday at work. If Urban was in charge, though, it’d sound like this. In a week filled with craptastic games in the SEC, the story of the week was special moments in the special teams. It’s the […]

The Week That Were: 11.15.14

Melvin Gordon. Melvin. Gordon. Mel. Gordo. Look, given my marital responsibilities, that’s really all I’m comfortable saying about the Wisconsin running back’s record day three quarters against Nebraska’s “Black shirt” defense in the B1G West Game of the Week. The senior (thank God) tailback’s NCAA record 408 yards were more than enough to bump the […]

The Week That Were: 11.8.14

It’s Monday, but it’s never too early to remember those who paid the price for our freedoms. They say that November is when you play for championships. That’s certainly the case when your media partner hypes your conference in such a way that your matchups in November will all be among ranked teams, right? But […]

The Week That Were: 11.1.14

Today’s soundtrack is inspired by the weather, both in Columbus and out here on the west coast… November is when Champions are made. And that starts on day one, it seems. Actually, check that- the defending champs were able to rebound from a shaky start against the Papa John’s and continue their undefeated streak. For […]

We’re approaching the end of October, and the weather has started to turn… if you haven’t already raided your area punkin’ patch, now’s the time to take care of that… oh, and any German festivities that might tickle your fancy. Let’s start this week with the big “upset”, where West Virginia hosted and halted the […]

The Week That Were: 10.11.14

I don’t know what you did on your “Buckeye Idle Saturday”, but I headed into the great wilderness and didn’t get to watch any college football.  I know, right? BUT, you can bet that I have opinions and thoughts on another weekend of the greatest sport on the planet, so here goes… Oh, and your […]

The Week That Were: 10.4.14

What a weekend.  Really only one choice for our soundtrack this Monday, which I’m sure will make someone very happy. Well. That was… something, wasn’t it? As you can see by all of the scarlet there on the right, it was one of those weekends where we remembered that the “any given Saturday” mantra of […]

The Week That Were: 9.27.14

Welcome to another Monday, Buckeye buckaroos. After a glorious vanquishing of the southwestern invaders, it would be understanding that you might have missed out on the weekend’s other college pigskin storylines… but fear not! I’ve got you covered, and even have a musical accompaniment inspired by our first noteworthy item! Yesterday was one of those […]

The Week That Were: 9.20.14

Welcome back from the “off week”… hope you got your to-do list whittled down and all the boxes checked. This would have been a great weekend for a wedding, FWIW.  To celebrate a B1G weekend, here’s your soundtrack for Monday. Bee One Gee!!  Bee One Gee!!! Oh wait. ESPN’s “power poll” includes only SEC teams, […]

The Week That Were: 9.13.14

Ok, let’s get this out of the way now. Ohio State does not have a “bye” this week, they are “idle”. Byes are used in tournaments, and the Buckeyes haven’t earned their way into one of those just yet.  To celebrate, we won’t give you the usual soundtrack, but will look for something a bit […]

Gameday

The Week That Were: 9.6.14

Healing starts with honesty, so here’s your look back at all of the games from the second weekend in the college football season. As always, we provide a soundtrack- remember, we’ve got each other. What if I told you… What if I told you that three top teams from the same conference lost? What if […]

The Week That Were: Kickoff 2014

For those of you new to our little corner of the intertrons, every Monday we’ll do a quick look back at the weekend’s major matchups, minor stories, and general acts of randomness.  As is our tradition, we’ll provide you with some mood music for your reading enjoyment… Remember, even though it‘s Labor Day there are […]

The Week That Were: 2013 Championship Weekend

Look, I know it’s the holiday season and all that, but I’m not feeling it just yet. Here’s some Ella if you’re in a similar mood this Monday. And so it ends… not with a bang, but a whimper. Not for everyone, but for fanbases who entered Saturday with significant postseason aspirations, the doors gently […]

The Week That Were: 11.30.13

As we enter the last week of college football’s regular season, this song is running through my mind. Plus, I was on #TeamCourtney from the moment she got on stage with Bruce. If the pounds of fried turkey and sweet potato pie that you ate on Thursday didn’t give you a heart attack, this week’s […]
