The Ohio State Effect: Kent State

Another week and another opponent's stats get dumped. We all know that Ohio State defeated Kent State 66-0 in the Horseshoe on Saturday, but the Buckeyes dominated the stat sheet as well. It's always interesting to see how a team's stats change after playing Ohio State. Below you will b...

PSA: Blue Jeans Are Blue

Dear fellow Buckeye fans, let me ask you a very simple question:  Would you wear blue in Ohio Stadium during a Buckeye football game? I hope you answered No (or better yet, Hell No). That was the easy question.  Now let's get to the harder one.  Can any of you right-thinking ...

The Rundown: Kent State at No. 22 Ohio State

THE RUNNING START TV: Saturday, 12:00 ABC Regional 1967 was the last time Ohio State lost a home opener against an unranked opponent. I believe there would be very few readers of Eleven Warriors that attended that attended the 7-14. The Buckeyes finished 6-3, but defeated That Team 24-14 i...

The problem with success

A boss once told me "sometimes it is better to be able to consistently hit doubles than occasional home runs because if you hit several home runs people will always expect them even when it is nearly impossible." We are in this position with football. Make no mistake, expecting and working for ex...

Urban vs. Tressel Comparison Stats

Full Disclosure: I was extremely disappointed in the play calling last night, and like many of you wished to have seen more underneath/ screen routes. HOWEVER, Before everyone goes and decides to "Post Herman's resume to Monster", or petitions to fire Herman I figured I'd do a little research on ...

Buckeye Poetry: "Our Decision"

Friends, I have a zillion other things that I should be doing, but the muse struck me and I wanted to share what I'm feeling about the team at the moment.  I suspect that many of you feel the same way. Shakespeare came to mind (of course), in particular the St. Crispin's Day speech from Henr...

Observations from C-Deck

This was my fourth game within Ohio Stadium and my second night game (Penn State, 2013-Officially known in my kingdom as the Depantsing). The View I have typically been in A-Deck or B-Deck for most games and this was my first time in C (C3, row 11). This was by far my favorite view from Ohio S...

The Ohio State Effect: Virginia Tech

The second week of the season and playoff aspirations evaporate. Have your expectations for the 2014 season changed? It is early in the season and stats can be deceiving, especially when Virginia Tech's only game of the season was against William & Mary. However, it is still interestin...

VT: My 5 Things

1) Our offensive line is our achilles heel.  They were awful last night and we cannot move forward as a team until this gets fixed.  2) I like our new defense with one exception.  It seemed like we were constantly playing a soft zone on 3rd and long (shutters at the though of last ...

Not All Gloom & Doom

This was a closer game than the final score. The stats for offense in the Ohio State - Virginia Tech game were fairly similar. Total yards 327-320, passing 199-219, rushing 121-108, 3 turnovers per team. When playing a team that is your equal, you must minimize mistakes and capitalize on oppor...

The Ohio State Effect: Navy

The first week of the season and most of Navy's stats get stuffed. It's always interesting to see how a team's stats change after playing Ohio State. It may not be the best comparison, but I will use Navy's 2013 stats against the results of yesterday's game. Below you will be able to co...

1-0: All that matters

I will start this by saying that I am always an optimist when it comes to the Buckeyes. Going into every year, I think it can be like 2002 was. The number of years since I have been a fan that we came close is amazing and agonizing all at once (1974, 1975, 1979, 1993, 1995, 1998, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2...

Eleven* Questions for an Eleven Warrior: Blair Conway

Blair Conway was the starting kicker for the Buckeyes in 1972 and 1973. Conway led the Big Ten in scoring in 1973 and set an Ohio State record for extra points made in a season. On a sunny and unseasonably warm day in April I was watching the kickers and punters practice on the renovated prac...
