Silver Bullet Points Changes The Game

Written January 9th, 2013 by MaliBuckeye

Well, it’s the day that I’m certain you have all been anxiously awaiting, leading us to only one choice for today’s soundtrack. Well, Ok… two, and anything from these guys would also suffice.

Spark Something Great

Buckeye 411

  • Turf to Surf- Well, it’s 9 days into 2013, and day two of Ohio State’s reign as National Champion… what are you going to do to celebrate? Coach Meyer seems to be interested in doing some fishing with his son, and will be doing a special edition of “Gridiron Outdoors“.  According to the press release we got earlier, the episode will

provide viewers a unique look into his life away from the sidelines. Urban offers insight into why he came back to coach, the passion he has to coach college athletes and what it truly means to “get away.” The episode is about more than just fishing as a sport; it captures how the spirit of the outdoors brings families closer as Urban and his son Nate tackle shark, barracuda, black jack, grouper and tarpon.

Not to be left out, Coach Hoke will head over to Long John Silvers’ for their “Whitefish Wednesdays”. Hushpuppies, beware.

Coach Meyer’s episode will air on Saturday, July 12th at 7:00 PM ET on the Outdoor Channel. Consult your local blah blah blah

  • Surf AND Turf? Following Ohio State’s third place finish in the AP poll (like anyone pays attention to that), Urban landed a $150K bonus as a part of his salary… enough to get some steak to go with the salmon he catches, I’m sure. There have been a number of articles written about the arbitrary nature of the final poll- why some people had the only undefeated team in the country ranked tenth, for instance- but when you realize that ending up one spot down the rung cost Urban an additional $100K, you can understand that your consternation is probably not anywhere close to what it could be.
  • Target Practice- Tuesday saw the “unveiling” of the BCS Championship Logo for 2014, the final year of the current configuration (more later). That’s the goal for this Buckeye team… and if you follow any current members on twitter or facebook, you know that they’re fully aware of this fact.  January 2014 will see the 100th Rose Bowl Game AND the BCS Championship hosted in Pasadena- tBBC is already working on tailgate options for either matchup should the Buckeyes head out to my backyard.  ‘Cause last time was AMAZING.

tBBC Conference Calvalcade: Big 12

Written August 21st, 2012 by Gary Russell II

We continue the journey across the nation to get you ready for kickoff in less than two weeks. Today, Gary weighs in on the newest incarnation of the Big 12 conference.

With all the Conference re-aligning going on it has been tough to keep track of what team is going where. Many conferences are taking on small changes while many are undergoing complete makeovers. Today, we take a look at the Big 12 conference, which has changed drastically over the last couple of years.

Baylor Bears
2011 Record 10-3
Pre-Season Rank: NR
Head coach Art Briles has his work cut out for him after losing all three of his stars from last year’s offense. QB Robert Griffin III, WR Kendall Wright, and RB Terrance Ganaway all lead the Bears at their respective positions and have all left for the NFL. The Baylor offense still returns three talented wide receivers in Terrance Williams, Lanear Sampson, and Tevin Reese. All three had 1000+ yards last year. The question is can incoming QB Nick Florence get them the ball. Only time will tell if he can and that is why they will start this season outside of the Top 25 until that question is answered.

Iowa State Cyclones
2011 Record 6-7
Pre-Season Rank: NR
Last year was a very difficult season for the Cyclones as they struggled in every aspect of their game. The lone bright spot was the unexpected upset of the Oklahoma State Cowboys (their lone loss on the season). Head coach Paul Rhodes has very few things going for him in 2012 with a QB battle between Senior Steele Jantz and Sophomore Jared Barnett brewing which we all know is never a good thing this close to the season. Rhodes also lost his offensive coordinator Tom Herman to Ohio State. One things that is going for is the return of linebackers Jake Knott and A.J. Klein to lead their defense. Look for the Cyclones to struggle against a very strong conference and be towards the bottom of the standings again in 2012. Read More
