Statisticology: Buckeyes' Tendencies By Quarter

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 n...

Statisticology: 2013 Triple Threat QBs

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...

Perception vs reality

Ohio State doesn’t play anyone. Kentucky would win the Big Ten most years*. The Big Ten is slightly above the MAC and well below the ACC. These are the new mantras of the sports media outlets. Many writers and/or voters are dropping Ohio State from the title game not based upon losing (they ...

Why College Football is Superior to the NFL

(Disclaimer: this was written in week 8 for some friends.  The records have obviously changed, but the sentiment remains.) Here is perhaps as common a sentiment as there exists among most readers of this site: sports are fun.  On this site alone (which was originally dedicated solely to O...

What to Root For: Week 12

Week 9 here.  Week 10 here.  Week 11 here. Welcome back sports fans.  Another cruel bye week in the books, and we have Buckeye football for at least 3, hopefully 4, Saturdays in a row.  I did better than I expected last week after calling for 3 upsets, clocking in at 2-2.  ...

The Series History: Ohio State/Illinois

Saturday, Ohio State plays the program that has the second most wins against the Buckeyes in football.  The good news is that the Buckeyes have won the last nine games played in Memorial Stadium. During this streak Ohio State has outscored the Illini 244-99; that is an average of 27-...

The Rundown: No. 3 Ohio State at Illinois

THE RUNNING START TV: Saturday, Noon (ESPN) Ohio State leads the series 65-30-4* and is 35-11 against Illinois in Memorial Stadium. *I include the vacated 2010 victory in Champaign, NCAA be damned. The Buckeyes last lost at Illinois in 1991. Since 1992 Ohio State has won 9 straight games at...

I wanna go back, I GET TO GO BACK!

I normally don't like posting personal stuff on here but I think this is a special exception.  For the last 3 months I've been spending a lot of time getting my application ready for business school and I'm proud to say that I have been accepted into the MBA program at Ohio State! ...

Weekly Probabilities - 11/11

Here they are!  Again, although the process is objective, I acknowledge my probabilities of individual games are subjective, though I think this gives us a pretty good picture of where we are at. As always, my numbers will be attached for anyone who would like to critique. Assumptions: -Ohi...

What if Bama and FSU both lose?

I know it probably won't happen, but we've seen it happen before (2007 when over about a 3 weeks span needed #4 Oklahoma to lose to unranked Texas Tech, #3 Oregon to lose to unranked Arizona, #2 Kansas to lose to #4 Missouri who would then need to lose to #10 Oklahoma and then #2 West Virgin...

Top 25 Breakdown in GIF - 11/10/2013

Top 25 will be based on USA Today Coaches' Poll because I'll rather take actual football coaches' opinions over media reporters' opinions. Yes, we may have asshats voting in this beauty contest, such as Bret Bielema and Brady Hoke (what kind of a head coach doesn't need a he...

4 weeks left

  I know everyone is disappointed with the Alabama win tonight but keep in mind that, as long as the Buckeyes keep winning, the worst case scenario is that we wake up on December 6th with a Big Ten Championship Game to look forward to and two chances to move up to the top two in the BCS s...

The Losing Effect: MGoBlog

The meltdown for That Team's fans continues again this week. I have posted some of the gems from MGoBlog.com so you don't have to read all four pages. I hope I can get to the mandatory 200 words. Man, is it good to be a Buckeye.   Hoke is easily one of the worst B...

I Dreamed a Dream

A weird dream I actually had... Ohio State was playing in the SEC only in football somehow (maybe Notre Lame inspired this part).  We were bullying everybody in the SEC and the media was frantic.  That part of the dream was like animals in the sports talking head world...sorry, I couldn&#...

SABAN COULD LEAVE FOR TEXAS

I just heard from CBS just now.  Saban has stated the only school Saban would leave for is TEXAS.  It has been confirmed that the wife has been spotted looking at real estate in the Austin area.  I have said along...once Saban leaves Bama, that Bama will go back to being 8-3 and hop...
