There are all different types of Buckeye student athletes.
Most are the ones that put in their time and move on to “regular” life beyond college, while some others go on to be mega stars professionally in their sport. And though they are few, there are those in both categories who are honored and cheered at just the mere mention of their name.
Then there is the even rarer athlete whose name always manages evoke a response; emotionally and sometimes even causing people to discuss their careers. Terrelle Pryor is one of those athletes- from your barber to your mother-in-law, everyone in Buckeye Nation has an opinion on the legacy he left at Ohio State.… [Read More]
As you’re reading this, I’m headed from the left coast with the whole Mali family on our summer vacation. First stop is guaranteed to be really awkward, since my daughters aren’t allowed to say the name of the state we’re visiting. At any rate, here’s a couple of tunes that‘ll be running through the ol’ brainpan today.
We have always been and always will be the roundtable experts around these parts and this time, it’s no different! Important stressful stuff is winding down in the sports world and summer is here — so let’s have some fun with the usual suspects and some twitter friends (Jim, Jeremy, Mike) I have invited over for the party, including Adam Sabie from 95.5 The Game!
Here are the answers to the “groundbreaking” questions I asked.
What kind of trouble would you like to see your least favorite Wolverweenie (past or present) get into this summer?
Sabie - I would absolutely LOVE to see Chris Webber call another timeout when his team doesn’t have any in a rec league basketball game…. Yep. That would be glorious.
@JayBuckeye74 - Desmond Howard for soliciting a transvestite prostitute.
Well, another Senior Crawl has come and gone in Columbus and we get ready to celebrate with the graduates of the Ohio State class of 2014 (including our friend Janelle!). You can’t think “graduation” without today’s soundtrack, I’m guessing… and we’ll give you the version that features yet another great Ohioan.
Like the rest of Ohio, we’ve got Stanley Cup fever here… we’re on a series of shots and medications, but to be honest, we hope it sticks around for a while. So, in preparation for tonight’s game, here’s a little something to help you get ready to #BeatPittsburgh.
How ’bout a little weekend “catch up” of all the news and notes? Since it’s a Sunday, we’ve got to choose our soundtrack wisely- something sacred, perhaps.
It’s taken me quite a while to build to just talking about basketball on a Friday night in RSB and alas, I will have a singular reference to football. To be fair, I will take care of that pre-RSB.
The Buckeyes football program has done some work the past couple weeks with respect to coaching staff additions that will cause a lot of fans to be quiet, for now. First and foremost, and probably the biggest hire since Coach Meyer hired his original staff is the hiring of Larry Johnson Sr. to replace Mike Vrabel. Johnson will coach the defensive line where he was hugely successful at PSU and has already helped in some of the damage briefly felt after the Vrabel exit. Kudos to Coach Meyer for bringing him in.

The Clemson Tigers await the Buckeyes in Miami to do battle in the Discover Orange Bowl on January 3rd. Meanwhile a little farther north in Georgia the Silver Bullets picked up what could be a centerpiece to the future. We’ll discuss “Youngstown Boys” and attack with quick hitters. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble!
Orange decisions and Clemson (who also wears orange)
While it was unthinkable prior to, after the final gun sounded on the Big Ten Championship Game it became obvious to everyone where the Buckeye football team would be bowling this January. Outside of Dade County and the walls of the Orange Bowl committee, nobody wanted to think about or even consider the possiblity of the team being anywhere except Pasadena either on New Years Day or, more likely, the following Monday in the BCS National Championship Game. Meanwhile, all along it was a foregone conclusion … [Read More]
