Big Ten Basketball Efficiency Margin

I really miss John Gasaway.  ESPN hired him and put all of his stuff behind a paywall and now I never get my Tuesday Truths.  Tuesday Truths was when Gasaway would look at every team’s points per possession offensively and defensively during conference play and rank them by margin.&n...

Possible Lies and Soap Opera-like Dialogue

“It occupies a lot of my time. It's a big hire. We have to hit a home run with this next hire.” -Urban Meyer I've been back and forth on Ash.  He hasn't really done much in terms of producing an elite defense but he has produced very good ones.  I was bummed t...

New Hires

So here is my thought after waking up this morning and hearing the good news. With all the discussion about National Signing Day and so many guys still on the wire, how are these new hires going to affect that? No only will players be giving a second glance at our new and improved defensive sta...

Michigan's First 2014 Opponent

I don't know if any of you guys remember, because I had forgotten just until a few days ago. TTUn's first opponent of the 2014 season will be their old rivals, the Appalachian State Mountaineers. Yes, their old rivals that they are winless against. They get another shot to lose to them....

B1G Divisional Alignment 2014

Ok, ever since the Big Ten Conference announced it's new divisions back in April of 2013, I've been confused, misinformed, intrigued, and uninterested all at the same time. We all knew what a flop (B1G commish) Jim Delaney's  'Legends and Leaders' divisions were going t...

Wrestling: Know Your Enemy: Wisconsin

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of 100 battles.” – The Art of War- Sun Tzu   In the 1st leg of their weekend trip north and west, the wrestling Buckeyes (currently ranked #7 as a team) will take on Wisconsin in Madison on Friday ev...

Start at Dick LeBeau

Why not reach out to Dick Lebeau for DC position.  Its a longshot but he is a Buckeye and at the end of his career.  He has accomplished everything he could have wanted in the NFL.  Worst he says is no.  Pay him whatever.    After that, start going down the list.  ...

Conference Bowl Records

  I have found myself feeling down this bowl season. I wasn't sure if it was post Christmas blues, not getting my Red Ryder BB Gun or because I felt a little piece of my fan pride being eaten away after each bowl game. After doing this conference bowl record breakdown I found my answer. T...

Why we play defense the way we do, my humble opinion.

I think we can all agree that our defense isn't where it needs to be. But before I start you have to understand our coaches are not stupid. They do what they do for a reason, and here is my speculation as to why we do what we do: Our personnel can't do anything else. Having Curtis Grant on t...

6 Points & the Takeaway from the Orange Bowl

1. I think Fickell is the guy everyone is piling only because he's the face and name we know.  I think for all we know the struggles could very well lie more in the lap of Withers, but we don't know him, the camera never shows him, so we don't blame him.  Fick studied unde...

We have heard this before: "We need to get better"

I went to the game last night and sat very close to the field of play, I have played college level sports, and I will be the first to tell you, we are average at best. The Clemson Defense was flying all over the field as if they knew where to be before they got there, conversely the OSU defense pla...

Thanks to the 2013 Ohio State Buckeyes

I know that it was a tough way for you guys to end the season, but thanks for a great ride.  You followed up an undefeated season with twelve more wins in a row--that just doesn't happen every year--but you guys made it happen.  I can't think of two back to back OSU seasons where...
