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. […]

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 […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: QB’s and guests!

It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you (without a dope beat to step to, at least). It feels good to get back on the blog train and give you guys some things that are running through my head. I enlisted the one and only Mr. Patrick Jones for a discussion about our […]

Come Here To Play Oregon

Wednesday Night Rumble: QUARTERBACKS AND CTE

To paraphrase the great Robert Plant, if I may, it’s been a long time since we rocked and rolled, friends! A whole lot has happened, but that’s not relevant to the subject tonight. No, tonight we need to talk about quarterbacks and head injuries. So without any further ado, let’s get this thing rolling. It’s […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Ohio Against The World

What seemed like an impossible dream is now a reality: The Ohio State Buckeyes will play for the national championship. The North Texas/Dallas area will be flooded with scarlet and gray clad fans ready to lose their voice on Monday night when the Bucks meet the Oregon Ducks for all the marbles. The Sugar Bowl […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: The Dream Is Reality

Have your feet touched the ground yet? Are you still floating around whimsically after watching the Buckeyes put a big league beat-down on Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game?

Wednesday Night Rumble: Complete the Mission

The Game has come and gone. The regular season is over. A lot has happened and changed since August when the 2014 campaign began. A lot has changed since Saturday, November 29th. We’ll get into it. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble! The Game For three quarters the 2014 rendition of The Game was eerily reminiscent of […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: No Remorse

We are officially smack dab in the middle of Hate Week! I’m sure you’ve kept the color blue out of your clothing choices so far, make sure and finish strong. Speaking of finishing strong, the Buckeye of 2013 unfortunately did not. This years model looks to make amends. We’ll talk about it all. It’s Wednesday, […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: Focus, Fowler, And The Playoff Run

There are only two weeks left in the regular season of college football. It is hard to believe how fast things have been moving. The Buckeyes return home for the final two regular season games of 2014 starting with Indiana and closing out with, as always, TTUN in The Game. We’ll talk about Minnesota, ponder […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: The Road To Indianapolis

A little bit of thunder mixed with some lightning and whole lot of explosions were the ingredients to a Sparty beat-down in East Lansing on Saturday. Don’t tell me what the score was, we all know what we saw with our own eyes: The Ohio State Buckeyes battled and eventually owned the Michigan State Spartans. It had […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: This Is Why You Play

It was cold Saturday night in The Horseshoe, but it didn’t keep the Ohio State offense from heating up. The scarlet and grey, fueled by four turnovers, beat Illinois to the tune of 55-14 and set up a marquee, prime time battle this weekend in East Lansing against Michigan State. Let’s not waste anymore time, […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: 111 Decibels

What a thriller in Happy Valley! The Buckeyes “nut up” (Hey, Urban Meyer said it in the post game) and get it done in double overtime to beat the Nittany Lions 31-24 and remain in the College Football Playoff chase. That’s a familiar score for a double OT game. Hmph. We’ll look back, look ahead […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: You Can’t Sit With Us!

I think it’s safe to say that Rutgers was what we all thought it would be but just didn’t want to admit for fear of not taking it “one game at a time.” The Buckeyes came out on fire and cruised to a 56-17 win over the Big Ten’s newly minted Scarlet Knights. In 2014 […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: The Road To East Lansing

The bye weeks are over, we have Buckeye football every Saturday from now until Thanksgiving and hopefully into the first week of December culminating in Indianapolis battling it out in the Big Ten Championship Game. The Buckeyes welcome Rutgers to town this weekend for a first ever meeting with the Scarlet Knights as they embark […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: Why You’re Here

We’ve reached the second off week and the Buckeyes are 4-1. With the nightmare of Virginia Tech long since put to rest, the scarlet and grey are getting things rolling at just the right time. Progress is being made in all facets of the game with the maximum of potential still appearing to be a […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: Found The Back

How about that for an offensive explosion? The Buckeyes sent the Cincinnati Beartcats back to north Kentucky with their tails tucked last Saturday and a lot of questions were answered among the new queries brought about. We’ll look in to it and a lot more. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble! Break out back  Through the first three […]


Wednesday Night Rumble: Progress Report

It’s hard to not like what we saw from the Buckeyes on Saturday in their dismantling of the Kent State Golden Flashes. There was a clear and concise dominance on offense and the defense pitched a shut out. Exactly what should happen when playing a MAC school the week after an embarrassing home defeat. We’ll […]

Not at night, but that don't mean

Wednesday Night Rumble: Showdown With The Hokies!

There was a mix of reactions when the final gun sounded last Saturday as the Buckeyes finished of their season opening win in Baltimore against Navy, 34-17. I’ve read people say the Buckeyes are a top 5 team and more than a few others gave the “it’s going to be a long season” dreary sentiment. […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: It All Starts Up Front

The wait is now under 3 weeks. In fact, we are exactly 17 days away from the Buckeyes kicking off 2014 in Baltimore against Navy.  The most asked question going around seems to be “So, how do you think they’ll do this year?” I’ve thought about it over and over, and I keep coming up […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: North East Ohio, LeBron and The Return

On July 8th, 2010, LeBron James went on national television and announced that he was leaving Cleveland to “take his talents” to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat. Hearts all over Ohio, especially in North Eastern Ohio, and most especially mine, were ripped out and crushed. A lot has happened in the four […]
