An Entirely New Team

At face value, our basketball team only lost 4 players from last year.  However, those four players (Aaron Craft, LaQuinton Ross, Lenzelle Smith, and Amedeo Della Valle) represented the majority of last year's team's identity, from hardnosed defense and hustle (Craft and Smith) to pure sco...

The Village

It takes a village. IT TAKES A VILLAGE In 1996 Hillary Rodham Clinton wrote a book titled It Takes a Village. The title was taken from an African proverb with the premise that a village, town or city is responsible for raising productive citizens. I was raised in Columbus in the 1970s, 80s...

The Ohio State Effect: Indiana

Another week and this opponent gets half of its stats stuffed.  Ohio State skated to Ohio Stadium on I-70 and I-71. Despite losing the turnover margin, again, the Buckeyes skated away with a win and another berth to the B1G Championship game. How did Ohio State fare o...

We need to stop applauding playing hurt.

It happens all the time in sports. It famously happened to MJ when he battled "flu like symptoms" to win. It may have happened to Hyde at NW, it happened to Braxton in the Orange bowl, it happened to JT at PSU, it happened to Dontre at MSU, and it happens to many other athletes in all sports. I...

Alumni or not, that is the question

I'm at work killing time between rounds combing the Interwebz with a colleague looking for good coach Hoke interviews (good, as in spoofs...not so surprisingly there's plenty out there by the way) and in my search I clicked something, that lead to more clicking, that invariably lead to more clicking...

The Ohio State Effect: The First Ten Games

I've been doing the Ohio State Effect for the past two seasons, but have not completed a breakdown during, or after, a season. I figured ten games into the 2014 season would be a good time to dive into the numbers of The Ohio State Effect. That and DJ asked for something like this about...

Can the SEC be shut out of the playoff?

Last week during the MSU\OSU game, as the Bucks were putting a pretty bow on the evening, Fowler and Herbie started talking about who is in, who is out, and who really helped their cause last Saturday amidst all of the chaos. Not surprisingly both guys thought Ohio State and Arizona State were the b...
