In today’s edition, we celebrate number 5, the Ohio State’s margin of victory over Michigan on November 24th, 2012, 26-21.
The Game is always a meaningful game, but especially so in 2012. Due to some unfortunate circumstance the prior year, the new coaching regime would not be eligible to participate in post-season games.
Although Michigan scored twice on big plays (Roundtree 71 yard reception, Robinson 63 yard run) their four turnovers either contributed to short-field Ohio State points or killed UM drives. Trailing 20-21 at the half, the Buckeyes played much. much better in the second half and shut out the Wolverines.Michigan’s 2nd half drives consisted of loss of downs, two punts and three turnovers. Not a whole lot of production right there.
Meanwhile, Ohio State did manage two 2nd half field goals; not much scoring, but just enough for another win. … [Read More]
We are the kings of the roundtable around here . . , errrr Knights maybe? We really enjoy a good roundtable and it’s high time we get caught up a bit on the off-season. Here is our latest installment of such with some help from a few “locals”.
We’d like to introduce you to Liz; she played in that band from up north, but her son is an I-dotter for TBDBITL and she couldn’t be happier or prouder (story to come from Charles later). Here’s her introduction.

To know my background is to really appreciate my “Buckeye-ness”. I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I reside in TSUN. I attended TSUN and was the first female tuba player in the MMB. When my son, Phil, was a junior in high school, we took a random visit to OSU. He loved it. Funny thing. All
While the details are still coming out, I can’t stop thinking about how amazing the situation in Cleveland was yesterday. We need more folks like Charles Ramsey who would be willing to get involved when it’s easier to just mind their own business. Only one soundtrack possibility today, then.
Friend of the BBC and draft aficionado Jeff joins us again to talk the NFL Draft. Jeff is a contributor on Indian’s Baseball Insider, has contributed NFL draft coverage on Sports Time Ohio, and can be found on twitter @jeffMLBdraft.
With about two weeks to go until the NFL draft, things are falling into place. The All Star games are done, the combine is long over, and pro days are all but done as well. Ohio State wrapped up their own Pro Day, so at this point things are pretty set in stone for the players.
The Pro Day was the last chance for a lot of these guys to show off what they could do, and prove to teams not only are they worth drafting but drafting high. The downside to this is that the top showing at the Pro day and … [Read More]
The NFL Combine is over. Basketball season is getting good and maybe, just maybe the Buckeyes are catching their second wind. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble!
NFL player factory
Seven Buckeyes were selected to participate in this year’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. John Simon, Jonathan Hankins, Jake Stoneburner, Zack Boren, Reid Fragel, Nathan Williams and Etienne Sabino were poked, prodded and dissected by doctors and NFL executives. They then went onto the field at Lucas Oil Stadium for tests of agility, speed and overall skill.… [Read More]
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and survived it safely! Did you get what you wanted? I decided since this is the last week of 2012, why not do a “best of and worst of” to recap all the things that caught our eye or made us angry this past year. Let’s rumble!
The Gator Bowl- The year started out with the Buckeyes in the Gator Bowl taking on the Florida Gators. The outcome and subsequent bowl ban clearly make this one of our “worst of” for the year. The catch to it that makes me crazy is listening to everyone now talk about it like they knew that the bowl ban was coming. From Gordon Gee to Gene Smith and down the line to all of us, everyone thought they would be getting probation and reduced scholarships for “Tattoo-gate”. The revisionists out there like to destroy Smith for … [Read More]
Everything is sort of quiet around the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, the holidays are almost here. Since hindsight is 20/20, let’s look back on 2012. Who’s ready to rumble?
The 2012 story didn’t begin on January 1, 2012. Of course, so much had already happened up to that point that I would be remiss without first going back to November 29, 2011 when the hiring of Urban Meyer as the next head coach at Ohio State became official. With that, we also have to think back to December 22nd of 2011, the day the sanctions prohibiting the Buckeyes from playing in a bowl game after the 2012 season, reducing scholarships and prohibiting Ohio State from competing in the Big Ten Championship game was announced.
“Gator don’t play…”
2012 started out with a trip to something called the Tax Slayer dot com Gator Bowl where the Buckeyes squared off with? … [Read More]
