Hopefully you’re either recovering from the long weekend or making plans for the next one… as an educational moment, though, be sure to know what you’re doing. As for me, I had a great weekend up above the treeline and enjoying some music that made me remember my college days… so, it’s also your soundtrack.

This week’s soundtrack is colorful, but has a bit of a different taste to it: trust me, it makes total sense in the grand scheme of things. Enjoy… language warning.
There’s no denying it… one group of conference-mates had an incredibly difficult Saturday.
Positioned for excellence, and featured in a number of nationally significant matchups, the on the field results just did not help dissuade the critics who argue that they have lost their prestige, and are rightfully scorned by college fans across the country. Once seen as powerful contenders for titles, it seems as if the results on Saturday have shown that the game may have passed them by.
Yup, it was a terrible day for the Big 12 expats. Who did you think I was talking about?
Texas A&M, Missouri, Colorado, Nebraska all dropped matches on Saturday, with two of these being significant “upsets” in terms of … [Read More]
Lots of holiday options for this week’s soundtrack, but I’m that guy that thinks Christmas music should be banned until at least December. So, given all of the rumors of this past week and the results from yesterday’s Ohio State game, the R&B genius of Sam And Dave make a return as we give thanks and look to the future.
Ah, Thanksgiving weekend. When thoughts turn to leftover turkey and pie and… football. While the NFL takes front stage on Thursday, and even with the “exciting news” that the NBA is “back, baby!!!”, this weekend was all about the college game. It’s the weekend that puts the best of both worlds together- family and friends gathering together to break bread and then scream at each other because someone had to go to that school just to be different.
And we got three days of amazing games, starting with the … [Read More]
“You are never as bad as you look, but you are never as good as you look either. The truth is you are somewhere in the middle.”
It is an old sports adage that has elevated the feelings of a downtrodden team or brought the lofty dreams of a fan base crashing back to reality.
I opened last weekend’s piece saying it would be easy to ignore how bad the Buckeyes looked in South Beach, and it would be easy to dismiss how good the team looked against Colorado.
Reality and perception might be far apart as to how good Ohio State was against Colorado, but the 180 degrees this team turned in a week was an impressive feat.
Sure, Colorado look bewildered the first quarter and half of football. When you play that bad on special teams, it is pretty easy for the opponent to seize momentum and never … [Read More]
Every now and again, we run across something at one of the great Buckeye message boards that deserve a longer look from Ohio State fans. So, when our facebook and twitter pal JessiBuckeye (no relation) posted the following it made sense to ask her to give us permission to repost it at tBBC. Enjoy, and thanks Jessi! First an introduction of sorts:

Hi! I’m Jessica, and I’ve been a Buckeye since the day I was born. There was never a time – even in my young childhood years, that I wasn’t rooting for my Buckeyes. I live in Orlando, Florida where I was born and raised, but came from McKinney, Texas. I am an Ohio State Alum, majoring in Early Childhood Education, but am now going back for Sports Broadcasting and Sports Journalism. I am a survivor of Anorexia, for which I spent 3 years in the hospital recovering from.
It’s been a few week’s since we’ve been able to run one of these posts. Hopefully the wait wasn’t too much for you, loyal reader.
That was a much better result than last week’s game, I’m sure everyone will agree. That said, though, there’s still a long way to go before this team is anywhere near as good as we’re used to. Let’s see how entertained we were this week.
Big Plays. We saw a few big plays, including four players who made plays of longer than 15 yards. The longest of the day was a 32 yard pass to Devin Smith for a touchdown.
Start Fast. Well, the first drive was a quick three and out, but the Offense did move the ball effectively for a touchdown on the 2nd drive. … [Read More]
Since I had the opportunity to attend the game in the Horseshoe today, I wasn’t able to do my usual recap. Because of that, I instead took a series of notes and jotted down some thoughts from the game to share. Hopefully I can provide some insight that wasn’t obvious from the television broadcast.
Also, I want to thank Joe D for covering me so ably on the recap this week. Without him, I might not have even been able to make the game!
