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, […]

Pick ‘Em Week Two: Newbie In The Lead

Well, if Wisconsin hadn’t choked, yours truly would be off to a good start defending his Pick ‘em title.  But I accept being a game behind after one week. I have Ken right where he wants me. Or something like that. The Newbie is already talking smack. “I’m in the lead and all is right […]

Week 1 Pick ‘em: Here We Go Again

Pick ‘em has returned. Yes. We’re going to do it again. It’s on. (I apologize for the advertisements in the video links. Nothing I can do about that.) After unceremoniously defeating Gary in come-from-behind fashion last year, I am back to take on a new “challenger” – Ken – in our weekly pick ‘em game. Ken, buddy, you’re […]

Buckeyes top Sparty, get No. 5 seed

They’ve been ranked as high as No. 3 in the country and have felt the pains of being unranked and unimpressive. But now the Ohio State Buckeyes have a signature win and some momentum heading into the Big Ten Tournament. Michigan State’s Gary Harris missed a jumper as time expired and OSU came from behind to […]

Ohio State's Sunday Woes Continue at Wisconsin

After dominating Illinois in their best offensive game of the year, the Ohio State (14-10, 4-4) women’s basketball team traveled to Madison looking to put together their first set of back-to-back wins in the Big Ten this season and to get above .500 in conference play.  Wisconsin (9-11, 2-6) had struggled for much of the […]

BBN Basketball Liveblog: Wisconsin

After Wednesday night’s results, things looked pretty grim for the entire conference. Just three of the 12 teams possessed winning records in conference play. Neither Ohio State nor Wisconsin qualify for that standard. Amazingly, both teams were #3 in the country at some point, and were undefeated in their first 15 games. Now, both teams […]

tBBC Pick 'Em: Gary Pulling Away

Several hotels in Las Vegas have offered to comp me as often as I want to visit as long as I continue to pick games so poorly. Nice. After 17 games yours truly sits at a Pepto Abysmal 9-8 while Gary is sitting pretty at 13-4. I think just to avoid any further embarrassment I’m […]

Rumblin, Stumblin, Bumblin: Nerdwestern Eve

Plenty to amuse us with this week, let’s get Rumblin’. Rumblin’ There’s no doubt in my mind who the best player is on the Ohio State roster. Braxton Miller returned in a way that most people watching are saying he would be smack dab in the middle of the Heisman race if he hadn’t missed […]
