If they can celebrate The Answer in Philly, we can celebrate Spring with this great musical tribute that includes his most notorious catchphrase…
Today’s my dad’s birthday. So, this is relevant (and may explain a few things):
Well, given the news today in college sports and elsewhere, I think I’ve got a couple of soundtrack offerings that will draw it all together. Stay warm people!! (it’s supposed to be down to the 60s in Los Angeles today… brrrrrrr.)
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, but his absence will mean that the other tight ends in the system (Heuerman, Moore, and Vannett) may be asked to bear the burden during the spring and beyond; the 2014 recruiting class does not have a tight end in the mix as of yet.
We here at the Buckeye Battle Cry depend on you fans to make us the blog that we are.
My favorite feature that I have been involved in since joining in December of 2011 is this twitter interaction we have done. Along the way I have been able include some of my favorite former players and in this feature, I bring in some new buddies from 95.5 The Game in Columbus who is a new big dog making some noise.
The most fun has been with you fans. Your insight into the Buckeyes players and coaches is phenomenal and I would say the Best Damn Fans In The Land!!!
Let’s pass out some end of year awards!
Adam Sabie, Archie and Matt Finkes Weekday mornings from nine to noon on 95.5 The Game, and the FnA Show. Huge shoutout to the best sports morning talk show around for jumping in and having fun with us!
As you’re getting ready for the matchup with the Ohio Bobcats, you’ll need some music to enhance the atmosphere. Lucky for you Ohio State alumni and friend of tBBC Mekka Don has done it again with the official song for the 2013-14 Buckeye Hoops Season.
He’s been working with the team and the OSU Athletic Department and The Nuthouse- this will be at the Schott and all over your Ohio State Hoops season.
You can get the song for yourself at his site or on iTunes (if that’s your thing) as well as picking up the “Juice” single. You can also still get your shirt at the official Ohio State online store- For the record, the Buckeye football team is undefeated when I sport my Juice threads.
He’s also dropping an album later this fall that we’ll be filling you in on as well.
Go Nuts, Buckeye Nation!
