Silver Bullet Points Can Feel It

Well, there won’t be a Rumble later today; Jason’s recovering from the Orion festival (he snuck across the boarder to TSUN, and hopes to come back with his IQ intact and his hearing decimated). As such, your soundtrack for today is my favorite Metallica song from back in the day. Also, we’re launching a new […]

Silver Bullet Points Makes Memories

Hopefully you’re either recovering from the long weekend or making plans for the next one… as an educational moment, though, be sure to know what you’re doing. As for me, I had a great weekend up above the treeline and enjoying some music that made me remember my college days… so, it’s also your soundtrack. […]

Silver Bullet Points Is A Dead Giveaway

While the details are still coming out, I can’t stop thinking about how amazing the situation in Cleveland was yesterday. We need more folks like Charles Ramsey who would be willing to get involved when it’s easier to just mind their own business. Only one soundtrack possibility today, then. Buckeye 411 Mmmmm… Pancakes. Ken broke […]

Illustrating Sports With Silver Bullet Points

Today’s soundtrack is brought to you by 70 degrees and sunny skies in Los Angeles. Oh, and a little bit of EW&F. Buckeye 411 Buck And Cover– That thing over there is this week’s Sports Illustrated cover, well everywhere but the southeast. I think that the expectations and so forth for this team are pretty […]

Silver Bullet Points Comes Out Of Its Shell

No, it’s not time for the IlliBuck trophy again… Tuesday’s “news” was full of terrapin conversation, so we go where it leads. As such, here’s this morning’s soundtrack… I’m sure my folks will recognize it. Buckeye 411 Urban Legend- The world was a twitter yesterday with news that Urban Meyer had revealed that Woody Hayes […]

Boxing Day With Silver Bullet Points

Well, here we are, at the second biggest shopping day of the holiday and fiscal season. It’s kind of sad, really- all those unwanted or mis- purchased gifts being dragged back to the mall, where “Good Will To Men” is certainly in short supply. That being said… how hard is it to follow a list? […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Apocalyptical

This could quite possibly be the last SBP of… well… forever. The Mayans have spoken… or the Aztecs, I always get them confused. So, of course there’s only one soundtrack for the moment… it’s been a good ride. Buckeye 411 Something Significant- As exciting as this season was, I’d be willing to bet that the […]

Thursday Night Rumble: PERFECT

Vince Lombardi used to tell his teams that they would strive for perfection while knowing full well they’d never reach it. However, he knew that somewhere along the way in the pursuit of perfection they would end up being pretty good. By defeating (we can say the M word again) Michigan on Saturday, the Buckeyes […]

The Week That Were- 11.24.12

As you’re reading this, I’m somewhere above you making the phrase “flyover states” a reality, and heading back to the left coast. As such, this week’s review will be a bit shorter than previous ones, but know that I’ve only got one song on my mind as I write it And now, we know the […]

Silver Bullet Points Gears Up

This week, there’s only one song that will suffice for Buckeye Nation. Enjoy! Buckeye 411 “One time”-  Monday was the reveal of the fourth edition of Nike’s “special” uniforms, and the third time it’s been unleashed for The Game. This year’s a bit different than the past- the jersey won’t be made available to the […]

The Week That Were: 11.17.12

We’re going to do things just a little bit differently this week, given all of the amazing news and events that happened this past weekend. So, this will be part Silver Bullet Points, part Monday Morning Commentary, and the usual chunk of random observations from Saturday’s events in the world of college football.  Here’s something […]

Goin' Hunting With Silver Bullet Points

Pretty obvious inspirational quote for this week’s Wednesday update, don’t you think? If you’re really interested in what I’m listening to these days, here you go. Buckeye 411 Fun With Numbers- As a reminder, Coach Meyer is 14-1 lifetime after bye, and 32-2 with multiple weeks to prepare for a game. Injury Update- According to […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Some R&R

It’s the bye week, and there’s only one song for the occasion. Well, two… something for everyone. Buckeye 411  Injury Update- Tuesday, Coach Meyer said that it was better than 50/50 for Etienne Sabino to return for the Wisconsin game, something that will add a much needed boost to the Ohio State linebacker corps. No […]

The Week That Were- 11.03.12

Hey, how about some country for this week’s soundtrack? As the temperatures drop, the games get more heated… and nowhere saw this more true than in the Midwest, where three games with title implications found themselves coming down to the final seconds. You read that right. The midwest- “flyover country” and “battleground states”.  We’ll get […]

The Week That Were: 10.27.12

In spite of the huge win in Happy Valley on Saturday, I’m feeling a bit of the blues are in order for this week’s recap. So, enjoy some Collins, Cray, and Copeland. It’d be easy to say that this week was “spook-tacular”, and “scary” for a lot of top teams, but that would be way […]

The Week That Were: 10.20.12

Ah, fall… the wind turns brisk and in Los Angeles the birds turn colors and fall from the trees (ht: David Letterman). We talked last week about “pumpkinitis” that’s sweeping the country… some people are taking it seriously. Instead of subjecting yourself to such a task, take time to kick back with some new tunes […]

The Week That Were: 10.13.12

Here we are, mid-October, when everything starts getting pumpkin flavored for better or worse. So, you’ve got two choices for soundtracks this week, via the “full albums” on Youtube- Something October-ish, or something more Pumpkiny. Salud. Ah, Texas… where dreams go to die.  Three of the most interesting storylines this week came Deep In The […]

The Week That Were: 10.6.12

Hope you’re not too hungover from Homecoming… Not that there’d be anything wrong with that.  This weeks’ TWTW is being composed with this concert in the background– say goodbye to your Pandora station for the next hour and 45 minutes. This has been identified as the first “Shakedown Saturday” of the season, and we knew […]

No Debating Silver Bullet Points

If you think the “Final Verdict” segments of College Gameday are amazing places for rhetoric and logic, you’re probably excited for the beginning of the Presidential Debates tonight.  Me? I’d rather argue about college sports… compared to politics, the BCS makes sense. Buckeye 411 Clothing, Part One- Never ones to miss the obvious, the Athletic […]

The Week That Were: 9.29.12

In a week that was seen as a “meh” on the national scene, it was nonetheless a great Saturday for football.  Here’s today’s soundtrack, inspired by Coach Meyer’s comments following the clash with Michigan State. Well, it may have been the weekend before October, but it certainly was another chance for folks to show off […]
