Winning is never enough in Buckeye Nation, is it?

I'm convinced there is a very vocal minority among the legions of Ohio State faithful who will never be satisfied. Not just with this team, an imperfect 8-0 squad no one expected to be 8-0 anyway, but never satisfied in general. Case in point: Saturday, after my beautiful bride spared me f...

PSU Going For Broke

All the love headed the direction of PSU is a little skewed. O'Brien getting the attention he has is partly for these reasons. With four years of bowl bans and big scholarship losses upcoming they have nothing to lose. O'Brien has nothing to lose. He will be a hero in the eyes of the faithfu...

Player Health & Meyer Kickoff philosophy

As I approach 40 years old I sometimes find myself debating myself whether I should be a football fan.  Every week we see player after player go down with season ending ACL injuries and similar.  We have come to accept that these are season ending injuries and the player will get surgery a...

The Agony of Being A Fan

I laid across my bed and threw my head into the mattress.  I was pretty much in the same position last year at the end of Purdue game.  But yesterday, it ended differently.  Much, much differently.  Instead of the usual bad luck football that seemed to haunt our Bucks last year, ...

The (Un)Official Mark May Thread

Okay guys, Mark May was complaining about the officials in the OSU game today, which got me to think: Why don't we have an official Mark May thread? Use this thread to vent all your hatred and anger towards Mark May, and post anything that can make fun of him in any way, shape, or form. If there...

A Victory in Adversity is a Meaningful Victory

I was privileged to be in the stadium for this game. The feeling in the Stadium after the pass interefernece call to extend our tying drive reminded me of the flag in the Fiesta Bowl in '03. I was completely blown away at how our team rallied to win behind the heroic play of Kenny Guiton and th...

How Well Coached Is This Team?

First, best hopes for Braxton. Nothing else matters more than avoiding serious injury for anyone. Second, I know there is wide support for 8-0. I like that more than any other alternative record at this point, but if you just ENJOY THE RIDE as another 11W blogger put it you should stop reading now,...

Enjoy the Ride

Logging onto ElevenWarriors today after the game I expected there to be a lot of really exicted Buckeye fans out commenting.  Instead, I see forum topics about how many losses we'll have and how bad the D is etc.  To be fair, there were a lot of really happy campers out there just like...

Purdue - Will It Be More Of a Grind Than Expected?

Before the Indiana game I posted a blog asking if the Hoosiers really could win. Ignoring the "what are you, an idiot? for asking that question" kind of responses the weight of opinion was : yes, of course, on any given day a weaker team can win, but it will take a perfect storm for it to ...

AC vs B-mill

Wondering if anybody on here has thought that Aaron Craft reminds them a little of Braxton Miller and vice versa in terms of how they go about their business in their respective sports? The main comparison that I note between the two is how cool they are under pressure.  It seems that Craft an...

Top 25 Upsets of the Week (Week 8)

Here’s a chance to predict your Week 8 upsets.  It’s relevant because anytime a Top 25 team loses (other than OSU) it helps OSU in the end!  Since I never want OSU to lose a game, I always root for someone in the Top 25 to bite the dust and help the OSU cause! For brevity&...
