Heacock-ball, style points and polls

There was a lot of hand-wringing and misplaced concern over Ohio State's narrow win over Wisconsin.  Despite seeing their Buckeyes play impressively on national television and in front of a lot of important recruits, fans (and some pundits) looked at the scores of the Oregon, Clemson and ev...

How we got here

It is late December 2006.  Ohio State, Michigan, and Wisconsin sit at 1, 3, and 5 in the AP rankings, respectively.  A large portion of the country is asking for an all big ten national championship in a rematch of the amazing 1 vs. 2 Ohio State Michigan game, as these were “clearly ...

B1G Ten Recruit Rankings By Position

I got bored and decided to break out the current committed recruits for each B1G team (plus Maryland & Rutgers) by position to see how they stack up. First # is the position ranking & the second (in parenthesis) is the national ranking. All rankings come from the 247 Composite list. The ord...

Guiton's New Role

Now that our our main man is back in action (would be a shock if he isn't this week), Kenny G's sweet jazz sound will get a lot less play time, BUT I think can still have a huge role in the offense. My thinking is with Braxton back he should take 100% of the snaps unless he is injured. No ma...

Buckeye Charting Project - Cal Defense

This is missing the 2nd quarter, but it's better than nothing. The defense took turns being dominating and frustrating. Shazier had a lot more minuses than usual. Bosa was a beast, especially for a freshman. You could quickly see that Cal was running the same few plays over and over again,...

What Happens Now

Just a hypothetical I want to post to eleven warriors readers. With the the news breaking that Texas Regents contacted Saban's agent and even though he denied the idea (we all know how that goes) what potential impact do you believe this has on recruiting? A lot of kids have Alabama on their sho...
