It’s time for weekend number two of three in this year’s March Madness! Tonight features battles in the East and West Regionals – including Big Ten action from Wisconsin, Michigan State, and of course your Ohio State Buckeyes.
The LiveBlog will kickoff around 7:00 PM EST to get you squared away for the first game between Wisconsin and Syracuse (7:15 PM). The Buckeyes follow up that game at 9:45 pm on CBS, while the West regional matchups will occur on TBS starting at 7:45 PM.
This round of the BBN LiveBlogs are brought courtesy of the great team at Fresh Brewed Tees- particularly if you’re a fan of Cleveland sports, you’ve got to have one of their WINdians or Browns shirts in your wardrobe. Although, come to think of it, this one is a bit… uh… dated.
If you find time during the games, you should check out our … [Read More]
We told you earlier that we were in process of coming up with some cool swag for the winners of our BBN Bracket Challenge, and now we’ve got enough that we can let you in on the awesome.
Our overall winner will get their choice of a shirt from the guys at Fresh Brewed Tees, their choice of Buckeye Flag from CVS Flags, a Cholula Hot Sauce Gift pack, some goodies from Fox Sports Ohio, and the opportunity to write a guest post here at tBBC. There may be a couple of things we’ll throw in here as well, but this is what we’ve got for now.
UPDATE: Since I posted this, we were given a $25 gift card for The Buckeye Room- they’ve also got a promo where all OSU fans can get 10-20% off on purchased during March- Use the promo code MADNESS2012 when you … [Read More]
Don’t forget to get your entry in!!
So you think you’re smarter than the guys on Gameday, and your Saturdays are spent screaming at the radio during Division 3 matchups. There’s a cornhole set in every room of your house; your wardrobe will change significantly once you see what Luke Fickell is wearing on the sidelines this season.
You’ve got picture in picture in picture, with tBBC livechat in a separate window on the 50 inch plasma. Your spouse left you and took the kids, and your first thought was “Who’s going to make sandwiches at halftime?” A Realtor came by your place and asked you when you wouldn’t be around- seems the ‘enthusiasm’ you bring to watching football drives the property values down. You match your grill cover to Ohio State’s jerseys for that game, and make sure to wear underwear that’s the opponents’ color… and sometimes, you … [Read More]
It’s been a busy week here at tBBC… heck, who are we kidding? It’s been a busy month, and it looks like it’s going to be that way for a while.
Which is fantastic, ’cause that’s the way we like it. Huge thanks to those who have joined our little barbecue (except that one guy who keeps double dipping in the guacamole), especially those who’ve taken time out to get involved in the conversation. Buckeye Nation is better when we all play together- even if we don’t always agree.
That being said, I’d be remiss if I didn’t give just a quick “thank you” to the folks who help us keep the hamster on the wheel and the frozen burritos in the fridge. We’ve got several great partners, but I want to point out two in particular:
Quick announcement and some short news updates this morning…
Introducing: tBBC Mobile platform. If you’ve been reading us on your iPhone or Android Device, hopefully you’ve noticed that we’re a lot more user friendly these days. Thanks to the great work of Chad at digital:construct, we’ve launched a version of this that you can take with you- especially helpful in solving bar arguments with fans from other programs.
Over the next couple of months, we hope to roll out a couple of other ideas and initiatives to help our goal of getting you the news, commentary, and shenanigans that you’ve come to expect whenever and wherever you want it. Now, there’s no excuse to not get involved… in your tweets, on your book of face, or on your phone. In spite of what they say, we think it’s awesome.
We’re excited to work with this great organization, especially because they are active in giving back to the community- $1 from every order goes to assist the work of the Cleveland City Mission. “Paying it forward”, indeed.
Oh, and in case you hadn’t noticed- since FBT released their great WINdians gear, Cleveland’s squadron has been doing pretty well. I also hold them personally responsible for helping Peyton Hillis surge to victory in the Madden vote.
Help them, help us, help the Cleveland City Mission, help the Indians keep on winning… whatever floats your boat, you should help yourself to classy gear from an amazing company. Just click the link up in … [Read More]
With the crap-tacular showing by Butler’s Bulldogs last night, we begrudgingly offer congratulations to UConn’s Huskies, the NCAA Men’s Basketball
More importantly, though, is the conclusion of tBBCBC, where Kriswitha_k correctly predicted a finals appearance by Calhoun’s Corps, and won the tournament with 77 points. In second place was WorriedSick, who managed two of the Final Four, but lost points in the earlier rounds.
Kris wins the Threebler shirt as well as a chance to guest post here on the mothership- drop us an email with your address and shirt size and we’ll hook you up.
No huge surprise, but Eric finished highest amongst your humble correspondents, with yours truly … [Read More]
