There is a new class of Buckeyes headed to the NFL. Thursdays NFL “Annual Selection Meeting” aka The Draft saw two Buckeyes selected in the first round and a host more taken later. We’ll look at where they’re headed and the situations they are facing. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble! The NFL draft is an annual right of passage where hope springs eternal. No matter what perpetual form of doormat your favorite team may be, the draft allows them to select the next “big thing” to make an attempt to restore the franchise to winning ways. The Ohio State Buckeyes are always well represented. In fact, so much so that they are third all-time in overall players drafted behind USC at number 1 and Notre Dame at number 2. This year would prove to be no different as six Buckeyes heard their name called. Let’s take a look at who they … [Read More]
You’re either reading this from home on a “ice day”, or from work after having dug yourself out of yet another mid-week snow storm. Stupid freaking groundhog… At any rate, here’s today’s soundtrack… for reasons that will hopefully soon be evident.
Tight End, Loose Cannon? Kyle Rowland of Eleven Warriors broke the news late Tuesday that Buckeye tight end Marcus Baugh had been suspended from the team indefinitely for yet another issue with underaged alcohol usage. While many of us would file this either under “meh” or “college lyfe!!”, it’s important to note that this would be Baugh’s third “incident” while a Buckeye, and his second involving alcohol. He was removed from scholarship last summer, and was removed from team activities in September as well… it will be interesting to see if Coach Meyer believes in a “three strikes and you’re done” policy. Baugh has always been seen as an amazing athlete,
And so, we draw closer to another season in Ohio Stadium. Senior Day is always special, but this one even more so… and there’s more work yet to be done. Aw, heck… I’m getting all choked up just thinking about it. Here, listen to the soundtrack and enjoy your Thursday.
Welcome back, the Radio Hour is back and rejuvenated thanks to a beat down of them stinkin’ Badgers last week! After such a great win, Urban Meyer’s squad get’s ready for the first trap game of the season against a very talented Northwestern squad.
Speaking of talent — tBBC Radio Hour’s true talent, Clair Crawford returns to the show this week! Clair and I talk about the latest in the world of College Football and talk Ohio State as they prepare for their trip to Evanston Illinois.
We break down what it feels like to be Lane Kiffin, the name of Bert’s new band — Bert Bielema and the Mud Pies… the New IED vehicle on OSU’s campus (SAY WHAT???!?!?) and we break down Northwestern while reviewing Ohio State’s performance against Wisconsin.
Oh. and we also take time to rip Clay Travis… What a [insert expletive and adjective Eric once … [Read More]
Welcome to the Big Ten football season! Has it hit you yet that after this weekends matchup the Buckeyes half way through the 2013 season? What did you think of the Wisconsin game? We’ll discuss it and more, it’s Wednesday, let’s rumble!
Brax on, Brax off
As we learned would happen late last week, Saturday marked the return of Braxton Miller behind center for the Buckeye offense. If you watched the game then you know why I’ve been saying it for almost three weeks now: There is no quarterback controversy at Ohio State. This is Braxton Miller’s team, always has been and will be until he departs for the NFL.
Miller came out in full command of the troops leading the offense to quick score early to get the Badgers in fast 7-0 hole with a touchdown pass to Evan Spencer that simultaneously let Buckeye fans know who … [Read More]
The #4/3 Buckeyes (5-0, 1-0) move their Prime Time show from Columbus, OH to Evanston, IL for another 8:00 PM kickoff. The opponents, the undefeated (4-0, 0-0) #16/15 Northwestern Wildcats. Yes, another night game against another ranked B1G team.
When I saw this game on the schedule, I was only mildly concerned about the outcome. And that was based on the 2004 night game debacle in Evanston, not on this year’s talent/performance. Northwestern will be a different challenge from Wisconsin, in that, despite what we saw on Saturday, the Wildcats bring a legitimate balanced offense into this game.
Northwestern has two legitimate quarterbacks in Kain Colter (27-35, 264 yds, 4TD, 2INT)/Trevor Siemian (47-70, 671, 3,2), two quality running backs in Venric Mark (if healthy)/Treyvon Green (101 YPG)and two quality receivers in Tony Jones/Christian Jones (39 Rec, 15 YPR, 5TD). Their offense is also a bit … [Read More]
