Making The List: Earle Bruce

Football Season has begun. Speaking for myself…I am thrilled. I love this time of the year. Football, we all know, is truly a drug among us that profess to the religion called Scarlet and Gray – of which I am a true Kool-Aid-drinker.

tBBC Liveblog: The Game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc6pr8Iui4k Men, this is war! I don’t care anything about the national championship or the Big Ten championship, but if we win this game today and afterward, if the Good Lord says, ‘Woody, it’s your time’, I’ll say, ‘Lord, I’m ready!’. I’ll have to take it easy up there–or down there–but I know where I’ll […]

tBBC Legends: The Best Buckeye

For sure my opinion, but everything else has been covered here JesseOwens.com. This is the first in a two part series (or maybe more because of cohorts responses?) that […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Grilled

Well, the first holiday weekend of the summer is soon upon us. Memorial Day reminds us of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and also that there are still people who savor their Constitutional right to be wrong. Words matter, people.  At any rate, today’s tune is just a little something appropriately mournful and full […]

tBBC HOF: Earle Bruce

In today’s profile OSU College Football Hall of Famers, we’ll take a look at Earle Bruce, Hall of Fame Class of 2002.

tBBC Kickoff Countdown Celebrates 61

Pre Ohio State Janowicz was born and raised in Elyria, OH and graduated from Elyria High School. Ohio State Janowicz played at Ohio State from 1948-1951.
