Bruce came to visit Ohio last night… and at least one person had a great time at the event. UPDATE: Video Evidence. So, today’s soundtrack is one of my favorite songs from The Boss… even if it’s somewhat new, it’s still a classic.
The news broke last week that tonight would be a very special game for Ohio State… as if the hoops version of The Game needed any extra attention.
With the Wolverines, Spartans, and Badgers all falling over the past week, tonight’s matchup against That Team Up North has extra importance- A win by the Buckeyes would certainly go a long way at getting them back into the heat of the B1G Conference title race.
So, what better opportunity for the Scarlet and Gray to break out the hoops version of the “Pro Combat” uniforms- special threads that are part throwback (in style) and part future (fabric and fit).
And, if you’re like many fans, you’re going to want to add a set to your collection. Our friends at The Buckeye Room have got you connected… but there’s a limited number, so you’d better move fast.
While you’re there, you can also add to your “Beat Blue” gear with a full sized “chrome” helmet, similar to the one that Carlos Hyde* imbedded in Wolverine defenders for the past two seasons.
They’re obviously great partners with us, and you can join the Buckeye Room’s VIP list by subscribing to their email list for daily deals… I got a new hat for my birthday recently.
Will you be able to be as dreamy as Aaron Craft? Unpossible… but the Buckeye Room will keep you geared up for your pick up games, tailgating adventures, and trips to the ‘Shoe.
Check ‘em out, and Go Bucks!!

One more week until Christmas! Hopefully you’re getting your shopping all taken care of… and today’s soundtrack from three of my favorite artists will help inspire you to remember the real meaning of the season. (Honestly, that wasn’t the strangest thing I found this year…)
Lots of rumors that the Buckeyes will be going “stormtrooper” at the end of this season, wearing an all-white version of their Rivalry uniforms against Michigan.
Kudos to our bros at The Buckeye Empire for being ahead of this trend.
We’ve known for a while now that the Buckeyes would be unveiling a take on the threads we saw against Wisconsin and Penn State, and that were unleashed on the Wolverines last November.
There was some speculation that OSU would “blackout” some time during the year based on jerseys offered by our friends at The Buckeye Room, but those threads are not compliant with NCAA regulations.
The ones shown at the official Ohio State website, though, give a completely different take on the classic uniform and will certainly add another splash to the greatest game of the season.
We’ll keep you updated as information becomes available on this, but personally I like the move. I’ve always thought that the all white uniforms worn by the folks in Austin are among the best in college sports, and this gives a similar vibe.
What do you think?
When someone takes what’s yours, the next time you see them it’s going to be a fight.
We know we’re the kings. Simple as that. Last question.
If you’re following us on the book of face, you know that I made it back from my trip to Mt. Whitney last week- when you’d usually be reading SBP, I was at 14,508 ft, as the picture to the right can attest. It’s Buckeye Nation everywhere, people.
To celebrate, today’s soundtrack is a personal favorite… And I’ll include a few more photos/notes from the trip at the end of this post.
This is not too shabby:
(Unless it’s a prequel to a horrible uniform announcement, that is)
UPDATE: From the twitters-
@BCastOZone: Russ Hoeflich from OSU video dept made this for Nike, it is his production, not something Nike made!
A bit of a different look at things this Wednesday, as I was fortunate to join Jim, JoeL, and Janelle in attending Ohio State’s win against Iowa in the hoops of shootyness. So, here’s your musical interlude for this festive event.
