The National Narrative (A Defense of Ohio State)

The debate over who is most deserving to play in the BCS NC is in full swing. It is amazing to see how passionate some fans and even national commentators are in their advocacy of Oregon/FSU/Baylor/Mizzou as the most deserving team to play in the title game. Two points are taken for granted by every...

The SOS Argument

I was reading through the blogs this morning, and when I saw all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth over the BCS and its unfairness (which I openly participate in, as well), I thought I'd look at the perception of the SOS or lack thereof for the 4 teams at the top. I looked at the records for ...

The Big Ten Problem

      It is the elephant in the room, and it’s not invisible.  It is pointed out by bloggers on the internet, and talking heads at ESPN.  The Ohio State University Buckeyes, in its current state of being undefeated for 19 games in a row, is almost relegated to undefeat...

Another week and another opponent's defensive stats get flipped upside down. It's always interesting to see how a team's stats change after playing Ohio State. Below you will be able to compare Iowa's stats before playing and after playing Ohio State. The Hawkeyes were able to i...

NoVA Buckeye Power Index Week 8: Clemson'd

BURN IT. BURN IT ALL. IT HURTS SO MUCH I CAN'T BEAR IT ANYMORE! WHY IS ALABAMA STILL A TOP 3 TEAM? WHY IS TEXAS A&M STILL RANKED? WHY IS HOUSTON RANKED #26 EVEN THOUGH THEY SUCK? WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO GET WISCONSIN OR NEBRASKA IN THE TOP 25? BURN IT ALL! BURN IT ALL TO A CD. THAT WAY, WE CAN...

NUMEROLOGY STATS AND WHATEVERELSE II

Numbers can be fun as well as stats, they have nothing really to do with what happens on the field but can be predictors.   6-0  to  7-0 When tOSU is 6-0 our record for game 7 is 22-4  0.759. We are actually better on the road 11-1  0.917, than at home 11-3  0.786. G...

Bert Being Bert

Bert, Your team is on a four-game losing streak. The average score in those losses? 19-39. You just lost to South Carolina 7-52. Yet, you felt the need to open your pie hole last week. Quotes from Bert at an Arkansas booster club:     "I came to the SEC for a va...

We'll Be Just Fine

Buckeye fans, This may be completely redundant, but let's think about the good here. Last night we lost a battle to PSU for Mike Gesiciki's services for the class of 2014. Let me be clear, when we play PSU in 8 days... Mike might be a potential Nittany Lion, but he will see the real pr...

Trevion Thompson 4 star WR

Hey Buckeye fans, Just wanted to share yet another recruiting thread, but this time talk about someone who may becoming a popular target as of late for the good guys in scarlet and gray. As we all know, our offense and Urban need highly skilled receivers in order to function at the level we desire....

The Series History: Ohio State/Iowa

Glenville

Greetings 11w community. I am a longtime visitor to this site and only recently got my membership. This is my first blog post so bear with me. I was curious as to why the huge amount of D1 talent that Glenville produces hasn't translated to much playoff success? IMO its a lack of any kind of kicking...

NKOHL ratings week 7

Today's polls all seem to be based on perception's, opinion, and bias. I have attempted to create a ranking system that will rank all teams equally and fairly without any human element. The system is simple. When a team beats another team they gain points. Points are determined by the oppone...

Big Ten Facing Past Perception

I know this is from Bleacher Report, which isn't the greatest of sources, but regardless it is an interested read. Obviously, the SEC is a stronger conference than the B1G, but how on earth can they justify having every SEC team with a winning record ranked in the top 25? I'm sorry, but ther...
