The Week That Were: 10.18.14

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 […]

Arrests

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 […]

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 […]

The Week That Were: 11.16.13

In a week full of surprises, this is a pretty good soundtrack for your Monday morning reading. Sometimes life gives you some unexpected gifts.  You’re set up on a date to be a wingman for a friend who’s girl has a cousin in town, and you end up in an amazing marriage together. You open […]

The Week That Were: 11.09.13

Today’s soundtrack thanks our Veterans for all that they’ve done… Ok, class… time for a quiz.  What did we learn this week? We learned that the template for beating Oregon has not changed. Control the ball and the clock with power running, Don’t turn the ball over, Take advantage of turnovers, and Hold on for […]

The Week That Were: 11.2.13

“November is for champions”.  Guess what, folks… it’s champions time. For the first time this season, the memorable games from The Week That Were found themselves coming from B1G Country. And, if I’m completely honest, the top two made my weekend pretty fantastic. First, let’s go to the “What’s NU With You?” battle, as Nebraska […]

The Week That Were: 10.26.13

It’s a week of ghastly costumes and other ghoulish accoutrements… so of course, we’ve got a great soundtrack for all of our friends. Well, the powers that be didn’t decide to market this weekend’s games as a “Separation Saturday”, but it ended up looking that way at the end of the day. Two more undefeateds […]
