We are finally a week away from kickoff. I know that all of you have been waiting for this since last year’s Rose Bowl Victory.
The countdown to watch us stomp Marshall continues with one of the most famous numbers in OSU history that is not retired. Teddy Ginn, Joey Galloway, and Corny Greene are some names that a few people might vaguely remember.
But let’s give some love to a guy that just 4 years ago came in as a frosh that many didn’t know what to make of. Will he play? Is he a LB or S?
4 Years later, Jermale Hines will be one of your Buckeyes starting safeties. Opposing WR’s should be scared coming across the middle, with Hines staring them down.
While not being one of the Buckeye captains that were named yesterday, he will be a leader in the defensive backfield and a vital … [Read More]
Just think about it….one week from today we will be basking in the goodness that is The. Ohio. State. University. Football. Team.
Day #7 is brought to you by the letter “G”.
Ginn, Ted Jr.
That’s a lot of guys wearing number 7 that played for Ohio State whose names started with the letter “G”.
And we didn’t even include 1980′s-era player Denman Gordon…..
Two players with those matching characteristics would be a mere coincidence.
Three players is strange.
Four players makes it interesting.
Five players makes it scary.
Six players proves the theory…….God is a Buckeye and he wears #7.… [Read More]
If you’re like most football fans you probably play some form of fantasy football. It gives me the ability to have a rooting interest in any NFL game I watch. I also like to have hometown players on my team but since I live in Cleveland that’s not such a good idea. So if you’re an Ohio State fan and are playing fantasy you may like to have a Buckeye on your team. Here’s a quick look at OSU players in the NFL and what their fantasy prospects might be.
Troy Smith – Baltimore Last year his tonsils gave the job to Joe Flacco and he’s not getting it back anytime soon. If Flacco struggles or gets injured jump on the waiver wire and snag him. Other than that he’s not worth drafting
Antonio Pittman – St Louis Rams He’s number two behind Steven Jackson and won’t … [Read More]
This morning, our old friends at Eleven Warriors published a brilliant piece on John Cooper and his recent induction in the College Football Hall Of Fame.
Of course, you can’t write a Cooper-based piece with using the numbers 2, 10, and 1. 11W did that. Sprinkled around the article is a list of Coop’s accomplishments, and The BBC will not argue with the fact that these feats qualify our former coach for the HOF.
But our disagreements about Cooper end there. I haven’t yet forgiven Coach for many of his failures and perhaps I still hold too much of a grudge….but my frustration with him hasn’t faded.
My freshman year at The Ohio State University was 1987. Earle Bruce had a team with minimal talent and he caught a few horrible breaks that year (seriously, a TD on 4th-and-23 to Iowa….in The Shoe). But four days after the administration fired … [Read More]
