TBBC Awards: Ohio State vs. Penn State

Here are this week’s awards for The Buckeye Battle Cry staff, after a 38-10 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions. Offensive tOSU Offensive MVP MDotySr –  JT. Barrett played his arse off and maybe into a new starter! Joe – J.T. Barrett might have played his most efficient game of his career. That’s saying […]

Are You Not Entertained? Penn State

Well, well, well. Lookie at what he have he-eah. A real quarterback controversy. J.T. Barrett comes in to relieve an ineffective Cardale Jones and he sparks the offense, giving it the pace and flow it had much of last season as OSU thrashed Penn State. Coach Urban Meyer said he would take a look at […]

Urban Meyer Postgame Transcript after 38-10 Penn State Win

Here’s head coach Urban Meyer’s thoughts after Ohio State’s 38-10 win over Penn State.  COACH MEYER: Thanks for coming. A couple of quick comments as we always do, without any hesitation or deepest gratitude to our incredible fans and support. And the Buckeye Walk was incredible. The skull session was incredible. And a lot of […]

What Do You Want To See? Maryland

I didn’t realize OSU was idle this week. Oh wait, they play Maryland. Just as good as being off, I guess. The Terps really, um, well … they are not good. This is just what the Buckeyes need to get things ramped up. Coach Urban Meyer said he thinks the team is close to breaking […]

Are You Not Entertained? Indiana

Just waiting for Ohio State’s complete team to show up. When the offense is clicking, the defense forgets how to play. When the defense is stingy, the offense stinks. Look at the Indiana game. The defense held the Hoosiers to 10 points in the first half but the OSU offense mustered six points. In the […]

Are You Not Entertained? Western Michigan

Welcome back Buckeyes. Sort of. The big-play offense we all have been longing for made a reappearance Saturday as Ohio State throttled Western Michigan. Three of OSU’s four offensive touchdowns were at least 37 yards. The offense had 223 on the ground and 288 in the air. Good balance. I still would like to see […]

COLUMBUS, OH - SEPTEMBER 13:  Marcus Baugh #85 of the Ohio State Buckeyes catches a two-yard touchdown pass in front of Nate Holley #18 of the Kent State Golden Flashes in the second quarter at Ohio Stadium on September 13, 2014 in Columbus, Ohio.  (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)

What Do You Want To See? Western Michigan

OK folks. This is getting serious now. Enough excuses. Time to start playing ball. The natives are getting restless and the playoff committee is going to start wondering. Excuse me for being blunt. Buckeyes, quit the crap. Get your heads out and start playing like a defending champion. That’s all I want to see. What […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Back to basics for Ohio State

Another week and another win, yet the questions are mounting. In a season that was supposed to be laughable and a sort of warmup for late November heroics and playoff dreams, the ship has drifted off course and the natives are restless. We’ve got some things to discuss, so let’s not waste any more time. […]

Monday Bucknotes: Taking the Positive from a 20-13 Ohio State Win

Thank goodness for Mondays. Nobody with a full-time job has ever muttered those words with any meaning. Any college football fan would look at you sideways if you tried to convince them that getting to Monday is the best them for them. For Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes, it’s okay to throw up […]

Rumblin’, Stumblin’, Bumblin’: Post Hawaii

One of the neatest things that I captured on Saturday was a video of some of the Warrior’s Haka dance they do in their pre-games. The amazing thing about it and I am not sure if they took offense to it was that the Buckeyes and student section began their quick cals chant right after. […]

What Do You Want To See? Northern Illinois

Are we done debating about Ohio State’s perceived offensive struggle? There is no struggle if you ask me. Short week. Emotional win. First game back with some of the regulars. Not making excuses. Just being realistic. Get it? Got it? Good. Let’s move on. Or channeling my inner Yoda … on let’s move. I think […]

Ohio State Shakes off Rust and Hawaii 38-0

After sitting idle for eight months, Ohio Stadium finally saw some gridiron action today. Hawaii traveled over nine thousand miles for the opportunity to play the Buckeyes, and gave Ohio State a surprisingly challenging dogfight for it. The Buckeyes only managed to pull away in the final quarter when they fully gained control of both […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Exit Sandman

Monday Night Football college style was a rousing success if you’re a fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Buckeyes came out like a house on fire, then took a step back in the second quarter but regrouped at halftime and finished up by walloping the Virginia Tech Hokies in Lane Stadium 42-24. I’ve been […]

Are You Not Entertained? Va Tech

I never expected Cardale Jones to run out on the field when the game started. Did anyone else? He claims he didn’t find out until right then and there. I say that’s a bunch of baloney. He took almost all of the first-team reps during pre-game according to a sideline reporter. Shouldn’t that have been a […]

What Do You Want To see? VaTech

It’s the game for which Buckeye fans have been waiting. Ohio State gets a chance to avenge its only loss from last season Monday when the Buckeyes visit Blacksburg and a road test against Virginia Tech. Just wondering … if someone at that school gets arrested do they get sent to the Hokie Pokey? But […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: GAME WEEK

The summer is drawing to an end, we’ve made it, it’s finally game week! Coming off an unexpected national championship run in 2014, the 2015 Buckeyes will open their season attempting to right their only wrong from The Chase. Monday night in Blacksburg, Virginia the defense of title eight and The Grind for title nine […]

First depth chart released

Urban Meyer must like the word “or.” The Buckeyes first depth chart was released a bit ago and that small, tiny 2-letter word appears 10 times on the two deep offense, defense and specialist charts. Of course it sticks out at the most prestigious position … quarterback. Meyer has vowed not to release whether J.T. […]

TBBC ROUNDTABLE

TBBC ROUNDTABLE: BUCKEYE FOOTBALL EXPECTATIONS

We here at the BBC love to do roundtables and there’s none better than ones about Buckeye’s football! I got the gang together to discuss expectations and mostly around things in general, and then specifically about the QB’s. There seems to be a growing sentiment that JT Barrett will win the job again based on […]

OK, Here’s What I Think About …

.. these suspensions, per the Columbus Dispatch. As we’re aware by now, Joey Bosa, Jalin Marshall, Dontre Wilson and Corey Smith have been suspended for the season opener against Virginia Tech. As pointed out here, here and here, these players’ policy violations may have some repercussions. First, these young men evidently had a, or repeated, […]
