The Series History: Ohio State/Indiana

 Saturday, Ohio State plays Indiana for the 87th time. Ohio State leads the series 69-12-5* and is 67-12-4 against unranked Indiana teams. The Buckeyes last lost to Indiana in 1988 and have won 18 straight against the Hoosiers. Ohio State should not have any difficulty getting up for a histor...

Weekly Probabilities 11/20

So I'm going to do things a little differently this week.  People have been wanting me to include Baylor in my calculations, but to be frank, I don't know what numbers to assign to whether or not humans will decide if an undefeated Baylor should pass an undefeated Ohio State.  Rath...

The Rundown: Indiana at No. 3 Ohio State

THE RUNNING START TV: Saturday, 3:30 ABC Ohio State leads the series 69-12-5* and is 44-10-4 against Indiana in Columbus.       *I include the vacated 2010 victory at home, NCAA be damned. Since 1991 Ohio State has won 18* straight games against Indiana. The Bu...

Grading out as a Champion

I admit it, although Kyle comes through with solid summaries of the Coach's Monday press interviews, I still like to watch them (see: unapologetic Ohio State Football junkie).  One thing that strikes me is the statement of which players grade out as Champions.  I'm sure it's a ...

Why such disrespect national media?

    Why such disrespect to our Buckeyes? That's what everyone wants to know, myself included. I have the day off tomorrow and figured I'd pour myself up a drink, do some research and put together my first blog post on 11W.        Everyone knows the nati...

Acclimatized Buckeyes

Acclimatized. If you were to be taken by plane from sea level up to the summit of Mt. Everest and dropped off in your favorite fur laden survival suit... You would double over in pain, be unconscious in moments, and dead soon after.  However, if you were to hike up from a base camp, and t...

Things: Marquette

Like some of you, I had two TV's going yesterday as Ohio State vs. Marquette overlapped with Ohio State vs. Illinois yesterday and since most of my focus was on the football game, I gave the hoops game a re-watch today after cranking out the Illinois version of Five Things.  I was most int...

The Ohio State Effect: Ohio State

Another week and another Buckeye stat bump. It's interesting to see how Ohio State's stats change after playing an opponent. As requested by BuckeyeMike74, below you will be able to compare Ohio State's stats before playing, and after playing, Illinois. This week was not the most im...

The Ohio State Effect: Illinois

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 Illinois' stats before playing, and after playing, Ohio State. When facing a team like Illinois...

5 Things Buckeye fans can do to fight Media bias

Media bias against Ohio State is at its peak. The recently released AP rank in which Baylor jumped OSU is another example. I am tired of hearing rants from Buckeye fans about how the media is unfair and all other fans/media are crazy. As as Blog owner myself, I understand and agree that its all abou...

Perception of UFM vs perception of TOSU

Is anyone else a little surprised (disappointed) that the cache of urban hasn't done more for our national perception? I had hoped his star status would have tempered some of the national reluctance to believe we are actually a championship caliber team, but that hasn't been the case. Anyone...

A Case for El Guapo

Many Buckeye fans think that Carlos Hyde is a good back but not quite good enough to be worthy of elite back status. I'm not here to argue that Carlos is the best back in OSU history, however I do think that he deserves to be mentioned when people talk about the great back in OSU history. There ...

I don't want to hear that Illinois has always played Ohio State close.  That doesn't matter.  There are no excuses accepted.   You are playing in what is perceived as one of the weaker conferences in the country.  The Buckeyes must do whatever it takes to separate thems...

This week's games

May not be a lot of "Big" games this week, but here is a list games I am looking forward to this week and why: Indiana vs. Wisconsin - we should all be Wisky fans as they are our biggest win of the year. I know Indiana will not be able to stop UW but I am interested in Indy's offense ...

We may have to cheer for Duke?

I know that this sounds absolutely insane, but, if Duke wins the remainder of their games, they will win the Coastal division of the ACC and will play for the ACC Championship versus... Florida State.  If Alabama and Florida State are both undefeated at the time, then we will have to cheer for...

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...

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...
