Bert Blathers- Also in Tuesday’s B1G Conference Call, Coach Bielema talked about how impressed he is with Ohio State’s improvement as the season has progressed. He mentioned the offensive line in particular, and said that they are playing really well at this point in the year. He also addressed speculation that his team would be satisfied after last week’s win, which put them into the Conference Championship Game for the second straight year; and said that his team would not see a let down against the Buckeyes, especially given last year’s game. Added to the fact that it’s “Senior Day”, and it’s sure to be a high intensity game.

Midweek look at news and notes from around Ohio State and the nation… getting ready for what’s been predicted to be a very wet weekend.
In my short time on twitter, more specifically since taking on being a blogger for the Buckeye Battle Cry and the Good in Sports , I have tried to stick to a golden rule. If I don’t have anything positive to say, I won’t say anything at all.
Now that’s just me and it lends to my attitude that if someone is being stupid on twitter, I let them be stupid. It will take care of itself and people will see people for what they are through their actions.
Other people clearly do not share those same ideas regarding what is appropriate commentary on Twitter and online more generally.
This leads me to believe that what may or may not be considered cyber bullying needs to be looked in to and thought about more deeply by those that may participate in such not so innocent shenanigans.
I have seen people go on a rampage and attack players, fans, recruits and even bloggers for things that they post. Has anyone stopped to think that you cannot really hide behind the twitter account? Read More
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…
(Gee) knows more about bow ties than he does about journalism.
Probably true, but since Gordo is a fifteenth level bow-tie ninja, what does that say about your point?
OT J.B. Shugarts (seventh or free agent): Good size, but had false start and some foot problems with the Buckeyes.
As much fun as the shenanigans and hilarity is hereabouts, it’s never been just about us. The gang works hard to bring you the news and important commentary, but it’s a lot more interesting when you all jump into the mix. As such, we’ve got a couple of ways for you to get more involved.

Some random thoughts floating around my skull tonight……
The Buckeyes have a LOT to live up to this year, and it’s much much more than a fifth straight Big Ten title and another crack at a big BCS bowl game.
Ohio State is more than just the champions of this league four straight years. We are downright dominating it, and that needs to continue. Take a look at this stat – here’s what the league looks like over the past four seasons;
Big Ten records 2005-2008
Ohio State has lost only 3 games in 4 years. EVERY other team in the Big Ten has had AT LEAST one season with 4 losses in it….and we don’t have a TOTAL of four losses combined.
That’s not just champion material….that’s total control. And it needs to continue.
Earlier today, Wisconsin suspended a pair of players, Aubrey Pleasant and Shane Carter. So far, no word on why the two were suspended, or any word on how long they’ll be out.
But it will hurt the Badgers. Both were starting safeties and both were seniors.
My biggest concern is not whether or not they players will return to the field this year, but whether or not it will affect the lineup on “Parks And Recreation” this fall.
Word from Penn State today is that sophomore LB Michael Mauti has an ACL tear in his knee. Not good news for a linebacker. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Tomorrow morning, I’ll be taking my daughter up to Cedar Point for one last time before she enters the 5th Grade. THIS is why I got two new writers….vacation days!
Just kidding guys…but make sure you put up a post for Day #19. Hint – use a punter whose name rhymes with Rom Rupa. And clean the kitchen. I don’t know who left those dishes, but it’s not my turn to wash them.
For those of you unfamiliar with Cedar Point, it’s THE place to go if you’re a roller coaster freak. Charlotte and I LOVE the coasters, so we’re all about it tomorrow. Also, it’s a few miles from the border of TSUN, so I’m wearing my Beanie Wells jersey. It’s been fun going up to CP for the last several years. Michigan fans usually just put their heads down and don’t look you in the eye up there anymore.
The BBC is using Twitter right now (follow us here), but we’re still new to the medium and we’re just getting revved up in taking full advantage of it’s technology. We are still trying to become as popular as Eleven Warriors (story of our life, huh?).
Anyway, I was at work yesterday when I got word of my latest follower on Twitter. Yeah, I was pretty jazzed about it for the rest of the day.
For those of you who don’t know the magic that is Bo Biafra, let me give you a taste. Here’s my favorite song of theirs, that I put into a video. Ladies and gentlemen, the lead singer of the Dead Schembechlers with their classic tune, “Chad Henne Is A Joke”. Lyrics are probably NSFW. Hide the kids and/or distract the boss.
Yeah, that was also a good excuse to post that video. It always pisses off the Michigan bastards. 250,000 viewers can’t be wrong.
Thanks, Bo. Nice to see you read The BBC. I’m a big fan.
