Is the CFP Good for Meyer's Tenure at OSU?

Urban Meyer's stay at Florida was one of tremendous success, which we, Buckeye fans, know all too well. However, it came at great cost to Urban and his family. We now know all of the stories about the damage that he did to himself, physically, mentally, and emotionally, as well as the separation...

The Shift - 1/1/2015 - Alabama

Oh hi there. This is something I've wanted to do for quite some time, but in my own busy life I've not had the time or something has kept me busy.

Ari Wasserman

I have never posted a blog on here before so I can't be sure that this is good form, but I have a gripe. Did anyone else spend the better part of this football season cussing user their breath at Ari Wasserman's coverage of the Buckeyes. I have the Bleacher Report app on my phone and throughout the ...

Bama Nation Mourns

Poor BamaReed and BamaNation. Shocked by those inferior Buckeyes. Nick Saban now has two strikes as he has caused the collapse of the Alabama football machine. Sounds as if he may be on the Jimmy Hoffa watch list by Urban Meyer no less. This is inexcusable for those great and knowledgible f...

A Tale of Two Yards

I am no conspiracy theorist. I absolutely hate 9/11 Truthers, Kennedy Assassination Grassy Knoll Pundits, Obama Birthers, and Wisconsin fans. It literally makes my blood pressure rise to deal with people who genuinely believe in any of the aforementioned "plots". I just wanted to clear that up ...

My Own 5 Things: Sugar Bowl Champs

1) Even though his play calling made me scratch my head a few times last night.  A big thanks to Tom Herman for sticking around to coach through the Playoffs.  Rather than starting the next step in his coaching career.   2) What a juxaposition between the 2007 title game and the Su...

SEC SEC SEC. This is the first year the SEC will not have a representative in the National Championship game since Texas/USC in 2005, 2006. And, as we all know, the SEC run was started by Urban, how appropriate for Urban to put the nail in the SEC coffin. SEC SEC SEC. The vaunted SEC who at...

my BamaMike - the morning after

What a game. I'm so flipping proud of Ohio State. I love my school and I love my team. Fortunately, my guy loves his school and team too - but unfortunately, he had to watch his go down last night. Most of you know him. Even better, most of you respect him.  He’s not an SEC homer, he’s s...

Blast From The Past: 12-31-??

To date Ohio State has never played a game on New Year's Eve. That means I can't give you a game from the past to go down memory lane with. Fortunately for us, DJ Byrnes (Marionaire and Eleven Warriors boss) provided this little nugget from yesterday's media day and Alabama's ...
