Tuesday Skull Session

Howdy, ladies and gentlemen. Before sitting down to write this Skull Session, I spent a not insignificant amount of time trying to remove a particularly stubborn splinter from my thumb.

I can think of no better metaphor for Ohio State playing Wisconsin.

The home game tonight comes earlier in the season than we've been used to over the past couple of seasons. Two years ago, the Buckeyes ended their regular season with the delightful Deal With It beatdown, one of the most fun Ohio State basketball games I have ever watched.

However, last season's Senior Day was much less enjoyable, particularly for those of us who were there in person for the one time a year we're able to take in a hoops game at the Schott1

This year's team hasn't forgotten that meeting and will be looking to exact revenge for the Badgers spoiling William Buford's final home game. But it's also a signficant game for two teams that are 5-2 in the Big Ten and aiming to stay within striking distance of conference leaders Michigan and Indiana — who, by the way, face off for the first time this season on Saturday.

For the basketball detractors out there, tonight's game probably won't do anything to change your opinion about the sport, but at least for a little while, there are still football happenings to talk about. 

We're in for more recruiting drama with National Signing Day just over a week away. I'm only a dilettante on the subject, but now that we're in the homestretch, I'm reading more recruiting news than usual, and quite frankly, it's kind of hard to keep up. Oh, the whims of teenagers.

Though in fairness, choosing a college is a rather important decision. But we'll get to those updates in a bit. 

And as everyone's aware, the Super Bowl is this Sunday, and after walking into whatever party you'll be attending with your Taco Bell party pack, be sure to immediately start an "O-S-U! O-S-U!" cheer:

WISCY BUSINESS. The 2012-13 Badgers are basically the same as every other Wisconsin team to come before them. They play at a very slow tempo, they don't give up many points, and they lead the nation in fewest turnovers per game.

Like most things Wisconsin2, it should be a fairly ugly contest. In B1G action, Ohio State is averaging 64 points per game. Wisconsin is coming off back-to-back games where both teams scored in the 40s — a 49-47 loss to Michigan State and a 45-44 win against Minnesota.

I don't think anyone is predicting a high-scoring affair, so every possession is critical. As Shannon Scott put it:

"We really can't turn the ball over this game because we know we're going to have limited possessions," Scott said. "We're not going to have 70 possessions like we want. We'll probably have around 50, so we've got to take care of the ball. We can't take bad shots at the beginning of the shot clock because they just get the ball and hold it."

Sam Thompson also pointed out how they need to rebound well. Neither Matta nor the players want a repeat of their performance against Iowa in that department. At least statistically, Ohio State and Wisconsin are pretty evenly matched in rebounding.

REAFFIRM THY FRIENDSHIP. In the other Skull Sessions this week, Vico and Jason discussed Ezekiel Elliott's3 visit to Mizzou over the weekend.

Yesterday, Elliott got some face time with Stan Drayton and Tom Herman, and if anyone is overly worried about the running back's commitment to the Scarlet and Gray, just take a look at his Twitter account, where he was tweeting shout-outs to fellow commits Johnny Townsend and Joey Bosa last night.

Bielema probably only offered him because he wanted to have a Mary Ann vs. Ginger debate.Dan Skipper committed to Arkansas after a three-hour tour

Trey Johnson, who took a double-secret visit to Tennessee last weekend, will still sign with Ohio State, according to his coach. Both schools, along with Alabama, are in the hunt for Vonn Bell and while no one knows who he will pick, we do know his announcement will be at 10 a.m. on NSD

The day before that, and not on Friday like it was briefly rumored, WR Ryan Timmons will decide. Although he won't venture to Ohio State unofficially this weekend, instead using his last official to head down to Florida, he will get an in-home visit with Urban Meyer and Tim Hinton tomorrow.

Lately, Ohio State has been making a push for another offensive lineman for the 2013 class. The two targets were Cameron Hunt and the Skipper too Dan Skipper, but the latter is now off the table.

Skipper committed to Arkansas yesterday and considering he had been committed to Tennessee, I guess Bielema is getting the hang of the whole SEC thing that he didn't want any part of last year at this time. 

 9, 10: A B1G FAT HEN. If you've ever thought, "I need my football to be more B1Gier", then you're in luck. ESPN chatted with a few of the Big Ten's athletic directors about the conference schedule expanding to nine, possibly 10 games in 2014, once Maryland and Rutgers officially join.

According to Michigan AD Dave Brandon:

"As the conference expands, it would be unfortunate if a student-athlete came to the University of Michigan, played in the Big Ten Conference for four years and never even got to play or compete against one of the schools in the conference," Brandon said. "That doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. As the number of institutions has grown, I believe we should take a look at at least moving to nine."

With a nine-game schedule, similar to the Big 12 and Pac-12, half the teams would play five games at home and four games on the road and half the teams would do the opposite. 

A 10-game schedule, which no other conference does, would even things out, but it would only leave room for two nonconference opponents. For Ohio State, who has scheduled future home-and-homes with Oregon, Texas, and TCU, that would mean only six home games some seasons and a lot less money. 

So for that reason, nine games is what will most likely happen. That's fine with me, just as long as Ohio State keeps those aforementioned teams on their nonconference slate. Not only are those the kind of matchups that are exciting for all college football fans, but with the new playoff system, strength of schedule will soon take on added importance.

SULLY THE KID. The Dispatch's Todd Jones checked in on Jared Sullinger and his adjustment to life in the NBA and away from home. Like a lot of 20-year-olds, he's learning to be an adult while still being a kid in many ways, such as getting his dad, Satch, to handle his rookie duty shopping while in Detroit for a game. 

That same weekend, Sully was denied a chance to watch Ohio State play at Michigan State, which is probably why they lost:

His love for Ohio State prompted him to drive to East Lansing, Mich., after Boston's team flight landed in Detroit. Sullinger tried to talk his way inside the Breslin Center as the Buckeyes lost at Michigan State. Security wouldn't budge.

In a recent loss at Cleveland, in front of many friends and family, Jared recorded a double-double (12 points, 10 rebounds), but also fouled out, as he's been prone to doing. According to Doc Rivers, "They're not letting the kid play."

Still, he got the start in Sunday's game against Miami and has impressed his coach, veteran teammates, and team executives with his attitude, basketball IQ, and play. Anyone who followed him in college would expect as much.

COLIN KAEPERCLICK. Jack Mewhort earned tweet of the day honors... FIU players not-so-smartly tweeted about taking recruits to a strip club... How Michigan's top-rated recruits since 2002 have turned out... Ohio State baseball tickets go on sale Feb. 8... Bob Evans gets my vote as the most B1G restaurant... An early guide to the secretive Tomorrowland... Tough job market in Eternia... A collection of Liz Lemon GIFs

  • 1 A few days later, I got the flu and threw up for the first time in four years. Coincidence? Nope, just Wisconsin.
  • 2 The downside to Bielema leaving Wisconsin is that that would've been the perfect spot for a Bielema joke.
  • 3 Such a great alliterative name. I'm also already practicing my ET impersonation for the first big play he ever makes for Ohio State.

It is rather delicious stuff, but let's be fair...Biscuits and gravy (with sausage of course) is probably the appropriate breakfast meal for Abe Froman, the sausage king of Chicago.

The way Wisconsin plays is the main reason i'm for moving the shot clock from 35 seconds to 30 or 24 seconds.

Granted. There are some womens teams that are very watchable. But as a whole, it is very hard to go from Sam Thompson-like above the rim play to watching the girls game. It is very different and the adjustment is tough.

walking into whatever party you'll be attending with your Taco Bell party pack

I may be in the minority, but if someone brought a vegetable tray to a party, I'd tear into it...carrots first, peppers second, broccoli third, then the cherry tomatos, if they are apart of it, and last and certainly least, the cauliflower.
And if someone brought the aforementioned Taco Bell Party Pack, I think it begs the questions, "Are you drunk already?" and "Is Taco Bell open before midnight?"

...

Same. If someone brought Taco Bell my reaction would be "Wow, thanks for all the effort you put in for that. That drive-thru line must've been a killer."

I agree there is nothing special about bringing a taco bell party pack but at the same time, screw the vegitable (thats right, I can't even spell it!) tray! It is Super Bowl guest rule #1, no plain vegetables allowed! Must be on top of some meat or dough product!
Instead, make the damn tacos with some real beef and fresh toppings!

Yeah, I think it's pretty rude of the commercial to say you secretly hate people who bring a vegetable tray. I, personally, would welcome one and I'm not going to resent anyone bringing me free food, anyway.

True story, and to be honest, I'm not sure if I got it all out. Guess if my thumb becomes infected, I'll find out.

Jack Fu's picture

I see where this narrative is going. Someone's angling for the 2013 Heisman awfully early...

Catch 5's picture

That's why 12 is the best number for a conference.  You get the conference championship game, preserve a rivalry from the other division, and every team gets to play home and away with every other team at least once every 4 years - all with only 8 conference games.  The move to 14 teams screws that all up.  The addition of another conf. game is probably the only way to help that, and a 10 game sched is better from this standpoint, but really is impractical with the current atmosphere.
Ironically, the move to 16 teams could be resolved easier than with 14 (and with less games) if they were to ditch set divisions and go with 4-team pods that pair up to determine the championship participants.  Problem is that this solution would probably never be considered by the leagues.

ohiostbux5's picture

12 teams doesn't guarantee a person will play every school in their 4 years at the school either though. We haven't played Minnesota these last two years, and won't play them the next two. A guy I work with's cousin is from Youngstown and is an early enroll at Nebraska. He's bummed that in his four years he won't get the chance to play us (outside of a Championship game or a schedule change due to Maryland and Rutgers). 

Catch 5's picture

You're right, a player would play everyone at every venue if they stayed 5 years, though they should be able to play every team through 4 - with a couple of teams only playing once.
They've been tweeking the B10 schedules haven't they?  Is that the reason for the issues you mentioned?

RE: The most BIG restaurant link. I don't think I've ever even seen a Culvers before.

Baroclinicity's picture

Culvers are big in the Indiana to Wisconsin area, and I know there are a couple in the Toledo area.  It's quick serve food...a couple steps above fast food, and I think the quality is high.  Great ice cream desserts, too. 
Full disclosure... I'm biased... I have family that owns two of these restaurants.  And I have to give kudos to my family that owns them.  I have never seen restaurants cleaner than these, pretty much ever.  You can practically eat off the floor.  I've never been there when people aren't cleaning (Can't speak for all Culvers though).

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

BucksfanXC's picture

I always judge a restaurant by it's bathroom. If you can keep the bathroom clean, I know the kitchen is too.
There also is a Culvers in Findlay right across from the high school. Just passed it on my way home this weekend.

About 3 years ago they opened one here in NKY.  I've never tried it before, but it took me a while to figure out WTF frozen custard is.

Torpedo Vegas's picture

Alright that settles it. I think I can overlook the Wisconsin factor and find one of these Culvers. It doesn't seem right that something not Ohio-centric is representing the B1G, but at least it sounds like a worthy representative. 

BucksfanXC's picture

You're missing out. But it's kinda too Wisconsin than I'm willing to associate myself with so I won't vote for it. Cheese curds on the menu, good chili for fast food, and decent burgers that are usually a bit dry for my taste. But it begins and ends with their main attraction, the custard. Concrete mixer at Culvers blows a DQ Blizzard out of the water.

AndyVance's picture

Culvers = A-MAZ-ING. Anywhere that has cheese curds, frozen custard and something called a "butter burger" on its menu is a-ok in my book.
We do have them in Columbus now, too.

TBDBITLinWIScantSON's picture

True. I am all about all things Ohio being better, but Culvers custard > Wendy's frosty & the French fries are better than most- large, crinkle-cut. And yes, Culvers curds are a hangover staple, as well as a good pre-binge-drinking idea. 
So, perfectly "'S'consin"

Sarah - thanks for the shout out to Gilligans Island, possibly one of the most influential TV shows ever. I mean, without Gilligans Island there would be no LOST, no Hawaii 5-O, no Dog The Bounty Hunter, no CBS Evening News, no red headed actors, no Dancing With The Stars, and no Kardashians (Disclaimer: I actually liked this show a lot, it was funny and silly, and had a good heart about it). 
How did this show ever survive without slow motion special effects, or CSI-like plot lines involving serial killers. There were no precocious teens distributing put downs to all the clueless adults, no terrorist plots, not even any sex unless you count Ginger's tight sequin dress with a minimal amount of splivage (splivage = spillage + cleavage)
They were the first to have such a diverse cast, I mean, a millionarie.....and his wife, the professor, and Mary Ann, why even a movie star. And let's not even get into such things as the dark side of Gilligan, the Skipper's problems with navigation, why anyone needed luggage for a three hour tour....

My favorite Liz Lemon moment is very obscure, but it might be familiar to a 30 Rock purist (if there are any on this site besides Sarah). The show opens with Liz in Jack's office and they somehow find out that Jack's mother is on her way there.  Jack and Liz make a break for it in the hopes that they get out of there before she arrives but they are too late.  As they open the door to leave, Jack's mother is standing there. I forget what Jack says but Liz's remark just kills me.  She simply says "neck tie" in a horrified voice because Jack's mother is wearing a ridiculous outfit with a neck tie and then it cuts to the opening credits.  Don't know why that makes me laugh but just thinking about it gets me every time.

How can BDubs not be the most B1G Restaurant.  It was started in Ohio, they have the biggest location in the country is at OSU, there are 50 bazillion tv's, beer, and the best wings.  Damn now I'm hungry.

"Say my name."

Unky Buck's picture

The first was actually on the corner of Woodruff and High. You can definitely make a case for it. I remember being in DC back in 2007 for work and talking to a colleague about going to watch some NFL games at a B-dubs on Sunday (it was the first weekend of games) and he looked at me and said "B-Dubs? What are you talking about?" I explained what it actually meant and he still didn't know. It's a little more widely known now but still it has been a midwestern establishment for quite some time.

...

Doc's picture

Even the wife and kids like BDubs.  I like going with a group of guys ordering 50 wings in a bunch of sauces and then sampling them all.  That way I can have the mango habanero with out having to eat all six.  Damn, now I'm really hungry!

"Say my name."

I remember going to BW3 at Woodruff and High back in the 80's for 10 cent wings and 1$ pitchers of draft on Monday nights for Monday night football.
I also used to walk uphill in the snow both ways across the oval to class.  Man I sound like and old geezer!

I remember curry wings @ Bdubs.  The absolute best.  Sad day when they quit serving those.

I just had curry wings last week at Bdubs. Maybe they're back now?

Not trying to be elitist, but BW-3 15-20 years ago >> BWW today.  I think popularity has killed it a little bit.

Yeah, what the heck happened to the weck?

Italics are for emphasis.

tennbuckeye19's picture

Seriously. Things have gone downhill ever since they dropped the Weck.

I still refer to it as BW3.  Not sure how many years its been since it was called that.

what is that? and i didn't know bdubs was started in cbus. that's awesome.
i think roosters is pretty good too.

Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck.  Weck is a german-style bun similar to a kaiser roll.  Beef on weck was one of the staples of the original menu.

I watched the Indians lose game 7 in '97 there (at the original bw-3).

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Doc's picture

You might be right, but they have the consistently best wings around.  You can go into anyone and know you are going to have good wings.  I have been to other places that may have a better sauce, or hotter wing, but BWW's isn't a gamble on what you are going to get.

"Say my name."

Earle's picture

Have you tried Quaker Steak & Lube?

Italics are for emphasis.

Unky Buck's picture

I was going to mention that too. Quaker Steak is turning into B Dubs but the original in Sharon, PA was a great place to go in high school for all you can wings for $10 on a Tuesday night. The amount of food 16-18 year old boys can eat in one sitting is ridiculous...

...

Earle's picture

I'll admit that I've only been to the original, even though there are franchises closer to my home.  They also have a lunch buffet where they have several varieties on the buffet, but will also bring you any kind of wings you want from the kitchen.  Of course, my favorite sauce is Buckeye BBQ (pretty spicy, but not over the top hot).

Italics are for emphasis.

Unky Buck's picture

Buckeye BBQ is pretty stellar. That's 3rd on my list though behind Arizona Ranch and Louisiana Lickers. Those 2 do it for me...and now I'm insanely hungry.

...

Baroclinicity's picture

Louisiana Lickers is a great sauce.  That, and the Asian Zing from BWW...

Arizona Ranch is glorious.

OSUNeedles's picture

Between BW3 and the all u can eat Donatos lunch buffet on Frambes, it is amazing I made it through college without a heart attack. I believe BW3 had 10 cent tuesdays when I was in high school. That was back when everyone remembered that wings were the part of the chicken you threw away prior to buffalo wings being invented.

burkmon's picture

Sorry, even Rooster's and Fricker's have meatier wings, IMHO.  I even like the sauces better at either of those (my husband would disagree about the sauce as he loves the Caribbean Jerk)

 

Brutus's picture

I respectfully have to disagree, Baroclinicity. The wings are still the same great quality and a lot of the stuff on the current menu is excellent.  Their burgers are surprisingly good. And the best part for me is that because of the newfound popularity, I can now enjoy BW3 out here in California.  My kids actually call it BW3, which I take great pride in.

Baroclinicity's picture

And it's great when you can partake in a food establishment with local roots, so I see what you are saying.  Who knows, the BWW I have to go to may just be a sh*tty outlier.  But I've just never been able to get a basket of Buffalo Chips that are hot.  anywhere.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

OSUStu's picture

Am I the only one that thinks the actual wings at BW3's are pretty poor quality?  I like the sauces but the actual wings are quite small.  Also, I have had many where the bones are broken.
I will still eat there because its hard to have a wing that actually tastes bad, its a good atmosphere for watching sports, and because I like to support a business that started in Columbus.  But there are many better places for wings.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

Unky Buck's picture

These days, it's hard to come by a larger company, like B Dubs, that sells wings and hasn't reduced the size of its wings. They used to be rather large and meaty, but they have certainly gotten smaller over the years as the price of chicken has increased. They're still not bad, but they certainly are not what they used to be....that I will agree with.

...

Saw an article about Bdubs in USA Today. Said because of this years drought, they're likely to run out of wings on Super Bowl Sunday.

"It's just another case of there you are". ~ Doc (1918-2012)

AndyVance's picture

Trust me when I say, that is crap. (I write about farming, agribusiness and food processing for a living.) The historic drought of 2012 (yes, seriously) mucked up a lot of things this year, but the availability of buffalo wings is not one of them.
Edit: "that" in my statement above refers to the USA Today assertion that drought shortened the suppy of wings, not your comment...

Unky Buck's picture

Thanks for the insight, Andy. I was actually curious to hear the connection between the drought and why that would affect wings. I didn't think there would be much of a connection between the 2 and you've helped solidify that thought. So now I'll skip the couple hours of researching and reading as I'll take your word on it!

BW3 is where I'm at on football Saturdays when the Buckeyes are the BTN; start off w/ a Bloody Mary (old tailgate tradition) then over to beer and wings for what hopefully is another Buckeye W.

It will be interesting to see how much matta plays amir williams tonight as bo ryan teams big men shoot 3's more often than not and amir has shown he has very slow feet in which he doesn't guard the perimeter well.  Hopefully we beat down the badgers and remain in the hunt and hold home court.  We do need to steal so more road games ie we need to win at nebraska, northwestern and hopefully steal the minnesota game or the michigan game.  that will help propel us up the ladder

I love BWW. Lots of great college memories. Just saw Kyrie drop 40 on the Celtics at BWW last Tuesday night. Epic.

Unfortunately, I was also there when LeBron flamed out against the Celtics in Game 5 in his last playoff series with the Cavs. Was at a BWW in VA with my Dad. I don't think my Dad has been able to go back since.

Bob Evans is really cost effective for large families also (I have five kids, four of em boys).  Breakfast is the staple...

osubuckeye4life's picture

Plus,  you can have it all day. Bob Evans is like that old pair of jeans you refuse to get rid of because they are so comfy. I will never turn down a chance to go to Bob's. 
 
Culver's is pretty tasty and I know there has been one of Hilliard-Rome for awhile. The one off Powell Rd. (just down the road from the Zoo) seems like it has been there awhile. Not to mention any place that has Walleye on the menu is definitely B1G!
 
Hmmmmm might have to drive up to Port Clinton soon for a fresh Perch and Walleye basket at Jolly Rogers. Yummy! Speaking of which I don't think Jolly Rogers was mentioned in the Ohio Diners, Dive, and Drive-Ins thread.
 
As far as chains from TSUN. I have to say one of best ones I've tried is Jets Pizza. Wow, that stuff is tasty.
