Getting Parental with Silver Bullet Points

Written February 12th, 2014 by MaliBuckeye

For the second straight week we go all “in loco parentis” for SBP… here’s the soundtrack to match, from back in the day.  Or as I call it, “The Day”.

“No, the cat is a bit to the left…”

Buckeye 411

  • He’s Got That Going For Him- While Aaron would certainly trade both of these accolades for a win last night, it’s significant to note that #4 was awarded the B1G Player of the Week for last week’s efforts, as well as being named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches “Good Works” team for 2014.  Adjust your swoonage accordingly.
  • Get Your Tickets- Yup, what used to be free will now cost you- the Ohio State Spring Game (and LAX showdown with Michigan) will be a $20 at the door cost for fans this year. Scheduled for Saturday, April 12, the tickets can be purchased prior to the event for $12… a far cry from the “bring a can of food” admissions cost of the past.
  • More Awards- Former Buckeye (and we certainly could have used him against TTUN) Jared Sullinger was also awarded “Player of the Week” by the NBA on Tuesday for his play with the Celtics.
  • And Even More- Last week in this space we told you that Ohio State’s Zach Smith was named the B1G Recruiter of the Year by Scout- today he added the same award from the folks at Rivals. Pretty solid work… wonder who his grandpa is?
  • This Week In Parenting, Part One- Sounds as if Malik McDowell is still in the “deliberation” process with his family, and will be making unofficial visits to Ohio State and Florida State with his parents in order to make a decision- the family has targeted April 1 as their “selection date”.  Also, it sounds as if the most important aspect of this story is being resolved; the relationship between parents and their son.
  • SNAPPER!!! Ohio State offered a longsnapper today… one of the 5 star variety! W00t!!
  • Wrasslin’- The National Duals are in Columbus this year, and Ohio State has drawn Hofstra to kick things off
  • This Week In Parenting, Part Two- This is a great video about the legacy of one of our favorite player’s parents and a surrogate “father” for a lot of past and future Buckeyes: Read More

The Week That Were: 11.13.10

Written November 14th, 2010 by MaliBuckeye

Time once again to take a look back at all the fancy doin’s in the realm of college football.  This week’s theme music reminds you to not call it a comeback…


Some sad news to end the weekend: Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Southern Miss players who were shot last night following their game. Word is that they’re stable, and we hope their recovery goes well.

Speaking of injuries, Northwestern’s QB Dan Persa ruptured his Achilles on the winning TD toss, as Iowa went down to defeat at the hands of the Purple yet again. Interestingly enough, he was not tackled on the play. This is the second year in a row that a QB has gotten injured in this epic (?) match up between the Hawkeyes and Wildkitties; you’ve got to hope that wonder if Persa’s backup has an attractive mom as well. Persa will be missed- he played with a ton of heart and skill, and had just the right amount of moxie. Read More
