Official: America Has ESPN/SEC Fatigue

The SEC's PR firm - ESPN - is driving a new debate: its minions are asking, "What is the value of a loss?" The real question is, "Has America had enough of ESPN and its prized brand, the SEC?" Beyond SEC-Country, America celebrated Auburn's victory. But, it did so for th...

Statisticology: B1G Championship - Run D vs Run O

I am addicted to stats and there is no cure for it. Doctors believes I may have dyslexia and labeled me as a nucking fut and I was forced to report to Room 11W at the Nuthouse for my rehabilitation. Still seeing a blur of numbers and blurting out "I-O" randomly when there's nothing, bu...

Looking Ahead: What if... UFM changes DC?

I know some folks are blaming Fickell for the Silver Bullet issues this year and last and I am not entirely convinced the issues on D are all on Fickell.  Coaches coach to wrap up, but that doesn't mean the players still don't try for the highlight reel hit (and whiff). ...

From Inside the SEC (COMO)

I live in Columbia, Missouri and have for the past 8.5 years. We moved here for my wife's career. She's faculty at the University of Missouri (Mizzou) and I've worked there as well for the past 6.5 years. It's an alright place -  Midwestern college town and all that. Howeve...

JUST WIN BUCKEYES !!

Saturday Observations: Will Screen Plays Beat Us?

I'm very happy to walk into work today with my head held high.  Not only did my Buckeyes win The Game, but the mighty Tide fell, giving us an opportunity to play for the crystal football.  With that said, I'd like to share some observations from Saturday that caught my attention. ...

The Ohio State Effect: That Team

Another week and another opponent's 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 That Team's stats before playing, and after playing, Ohio State. Entering The Game the Wolverin...

Follow the money - ESPN

Hey Buckeye fans, I know this has been talked about a few times on here but I wanted to throw in my two cents and maybe calm down some people. As the subject states, follow the money.....ESPN will not, I repeat will not push or advocate for the BIG. Media; whether in politics and/or sports are...

My Own 5 Things

1) Our passing game needs the indoors that we will have next week in Indy.  Our passing game has not been the same recently.  I don't like Brax throwing with a glove on.  Hopefully our next two games that will not be an issue.  2) I will preface this with that I am not a hug...

Michigan Gameplan a Blueprint to Beat OSU?

So after watching Michigan create mismatches and coverage issues for Ohio State's defense, I am wondering if they have given a clue to future opponents as to how to beat OSU. I know that the Good Guys got the win in the end, but somehow ttun made our defense look as bad as anyone has made ...

That Special Time of Uncertainty

I remember 1968.  I remember the term "Super Sophomores." That's not a term you hear thrown around today.  A sophomore is a seasoned veteran compared to the many freshmen that play college football today.  I remember when Archie Griffin--a lowly freshman--replaced Morris...

The Losing Effect: M*ch*gan

The men so blue are having mixed emotions after yet another loss to Ohio State. I have posted some of the gems from mgoblog.com so you don't have to read all 224 posts. The spelling and words are theirs. It is difficult, but I will not correct their spelling and grammatical errors.  ...

Is this the Worst defense in the past 10 years?

I believe yes it is. We need changes to our coaching staff on the D side of the ball.   Did Akron or Connecticut give up this many yards to Michigan>? How does this look going forward into the Big 10 Championship game in Indy?  Does this give unwanted confidence to MSU?  I belie...

Urban Meyer and the Village (Remy)

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 and 90s. During that time my village taught me t...
