This might be an Ohio State bye week, but folks — this isn’t the federal government. Here at tBBC, we never shut down. Unless of course, we’ve eaten too many nachos or sipped on too many bottles. We are like a torrent site on a ship in some random ocean. We don’t shut down — We RISE UP!
Without further ado, as your rebel pirate wannabe torrent lovin’ leader, and the power invested in me, I bring you the breakdown of some of the top stories in college football.
According to Miami University officials on Sunday, The Tread has worn off the tires of the RedHawk faithful. Don Treadwell was relieved of his responsibilities after a 21-9 loss to Central Michigan to open up MAC play. You cannot blame Athletic Director David Sayler for making the change. Treadwell was 0-5 this season and 8-21 while at the helm.
Just how bad was this team? Out of the 123 teams in the FBS, Miami is ranked 115th or lower in almost every major offensive and defensive category. It makes you wonder, how such a tradition rich program got so bad so quickly. Especially when you look at the history of coaching success at this program.
From Woody and Bo, to former assistants Jim Tressel, Sean Payton and Kevin Wilson. That doesn’t even touch on the echelon of historic coaches in Miami’s history. Names like Paul Brown, Ara Parseghian, Bill Mallory, Randy Walker, and Terry Hoeppner.
It’s that time of the year again! The the smell of brats, dogs and burgers fill the air. And of course a brew of choice in hand. The staff at The Buckeye Battle Cry would like to take this time to thank veterans and those currently serving that have risked their lives for our freedom, and remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice.
With the weekend limping into it’s last day, how about we get you updated on some Big Ten and Ohio State news and views? It’s been a very busy time in Buckeye Land, let’s get you updated with the latest clips across the country.
Cody Green was well on his way to being one of the up and coming quarterbacks in college football when he joined Nebraska two years ago. The 6th best incoming dual threat quarterback of the 2009 class has at times showcased that ability, but with Tim Beck’s new system and a man named Taylor Martinez, it looks like the Texan will put on his cowboys boots and travel onward. A good thing for opposing Big Ten teams, because Green adds a lot of depth, and can replace the oft-injured Taylor Martinez pretty evenly.
No word on where Green is targeting, but names of schools that have been rumored are: Boise State, Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, Houston, and Louisville. A whole slew of other Big 12 schools such as Kansas State, Iowa State, and Kansas are in need of a quarterback.
Boise seems the most compelling with Kellen Moore graduating after this season. Louisville is the home of Green’s former offensive coordinator Shawn Watson, who is now the Cardinals’ quarterback coach and could be a place of comfort for Green.
