  • Silver Bullet Points To The Money

    In this week’s edition of news and notes, we take a look at the ever swirling world of college “playoffs”; helping you get to the bottom of the matter. You can probably guess where this is headed…

    • Hangin’ With Urb- Hopefully you were one of the students who were able to get your tickets to the upcoming “meet and greet” with Ohio State’s new head coach. If so, I’m sure you’re in for a treat. Absolutely no disrespect to Coach Tressel, but the public speaking and offensive styles of these two men were pretty consistent: The Senator wanted to kill clock, lull you into complacency, and wait for you to make a mistake. Coach Meyer will see how many questions he can answer in a minute, and expects every one of them to score.

    What Do You Want To See On… Monday?

    Happy 2012!  Here’s our version of the weekly wish list for the Gator Bowl… the last Buckeye bowl game for a while.

    JoeD

    A Will To Win - This is the first time since 2004 that Ohio State isn’t in a BCS bowl…. With a whole new fold in place for the upcoming season, it’s important to go out and play like you want to win this meaningless bowl. It just sets up momentum heading into the spring and leaves a lasting mark.

    Seniors and Juniors Play their Best - Seniors and Juniors, this is the last time you will ever compete in a bowl situation ever again. Cherish it. Enjoy it. Play your heart out like your life depended on it. It might just be another bowl to everyone else, but for you guys– it’s your last chance to compete in the “post-season.”

  • Silver Bullet Points Hand Out Hardware

    Today was the football team banquet; here’s who was honored:

    • Boom Herron was named Team MVP, in spite of his being suspended for a good portion of the year. My guess is that this gives us insight into the role that he played behind the scenes as an integral part of the team.
    • Captain, My Captain- As promised these were named at the end of the season, and are as follows: Michael Brewster, Boom Herron, Andrew Sweat, and John Simon.
    • Braxton Miller was named Archie Griffin Outstanding Offensive Player.
    • Bill Willis award for Outstanding Defensive Player was John Simon.
    • Freshman Ryan Shazier won the Rick Meyer Award for his play against Penn STate
    • Most Inspirational Player (Bo Rein Award) was Nate Ebner
    • First Year Defensive Award winner: Bradly Roby
    • The Jim Marshall “Warrior” Award was given to Tyler Moeller.

    Congratulations to these Buckeyes and all who were acknowledged during the … [Read More]

  • Shots from the Shoe – Penn State

    I’m not going to wax philosophic after that Penn State game.  Being in the stadium for Dr. Wood’s last home game was wonderful – particularly getting a chance to shake his hand and thank him for everything after the game.  The game, though, left a lot to be desired.

    • The Buckeye fans were wonderful during the game.  Lots of people will point to the fact that the PSU team was booed when they came into the stadium.  I will simply point out (and it’s something that has always annoyed me) that every team is booed coming into the stadium.  I can think of no better way to show respect to the other team given the situation then to treat them no differently than you would have otherwise.  It’s like the whole situation never happened.

  • tBBC Radio Hour: 2011 Michigan State Pregame

    Eric and Jim get together to discuss the upcoming game between Ohio State and Michigan State, and reminisce about the Colorado game. They talk about the development of quarterback Braxton Miller, and the superb play of Jordan Hall in all phases of the game. They also mention the ever important Nate Ebner missile and what he means to the kick coverage. Finally, they spend plenty of time talking about Michigan State and their excellent quarterback, Kirk Cousins.

    Joining Eric this week for the opponent’s interview is Joe Rexrode of the Lansing State Journal, the local newspaper for the state capital of Michigan. They talk plenty of MSU football, including the issues for the MSU offensive line.

    All this and more on this week’s radio hour!

    What do you Want to see on Saturday? Michigan State Edition

    Big Ten season is finally upon us with the Spartans of Michigan State visiting Columbus this Saturday. What do the guys want to see this weekend? Don’t forget to tell us what you want to see in the comments!

    Return Of The Burn. Jake Stoneburner has been quieted down since the Akron game, mostly due to defensive attention but also due in part to some of the instability at Quarterback. While Braxton has proven he’s got the ability to go deep, let’s not forget the “new” weapon that wears number eleven.

    Hungry Hankins. A Michigan native, Jonathan has been playing lights out as of late (when he hasn’t been dinged up). With the injuries on the Spartan offensive line, and motivation that comes with playing one of the home teams, it’s time for a phenomenal game.

    Defensive Score. I really can’t believe that Ohio State has … [Read More]
