Zook's decision - could it be right?

Everyone is trashing Zook for going for it, it fits the meme that he's a terrible game coach. I actually think it's complicated and he could have been right. First off, the success rate on 4th and 2 is pretty good, around 60%. If they made it they have a much better chance of getting ...

Illinois Drinking Game

Let's face it: The 2011 Ohio State football season is an exercise in humility. Between Nick Siciliano avoiding his true calling at Best Buy, Jim Bollman catching flying fish with his mouth and Joe Bauserman dropping scuds on innocent people, we might as well have a little fun. Laughter he...

Illini Week 2011

Illinois 2011 Well, I’m back from a totally unwarranted one game suspension. I go to a friend’s beach house in the Outer Banks for a few days of golf and the NCAA calls that an improper benefit, so I miss the Nebraska game. Can’t anyone have fun?  Speaking of fun&hellip...

Jim Bollman is Consistent

Being consistently good (not great) can open more doors because, while you may never dazzle, you still produce.  Of course, if you're consistent at something, and you're always terrible... then you're probably named Jim Bollman. Let's take a trip back to 2005 and look bac...

#2, yep that about sums it up

The curse of #2 is in full effect. Not only do we all have hallucinations of #2 arm punting and gliding his way past opposing defenders effortlessly, but so far this season the current #2's have been about as good as that other "Number Two". Rod Smith played himself out of a...

A Long Way To Go

First posted by Brady at Inside The Shoe. I don’t know if I would feel better today about a complete blowout in Lincoln, NE or the way things really went down on Saturday night. On one hand, the offense looked fairly competent during the first half giving me hope for the future. On the ...

What did we do to deserve this?

Buckeye Nation, I beg you to repent, ask for forgiveness, sacrifice a chicken or something. I know there are long suffering fan bases throughout this great nation.  I know there are lovable losers and plenty of folks who have had their collective hearts ripped out by their favorite sport...

Buckeye Still Standing

As my username indicates, I am a Buckeye from the great state of Texas. I am currently a student here at OSU and I have to say I am proud to be a Buckeye. Yes, I know. We are all frustrated after what happened these last couple of weeks. I understand this. But, even after all this, I still ca...

Requesting Your Input for a Visitors Guide

Attention 11W faithful: I am in the process of compiling suggestions for a "visitors guide". This is something that will help anyone traveling to Columbus for a game by giving them a list of places to go, things to see, food, drink, etc. We all know that the main destination for 10/29 i...

Kenny G!

Anyone know whats going on with Kenny Guiton?! I thought he looked good in spring ball last year but I havent really heard his name mentioned when people talk about our QB situation. I know there are MANY other problems with this team right now but he could be a spark for the offense. Benching BM...

Postmortem

First posted at Inside The Shoe, by Brady That's all folks. The curtain has dropped, the seas have un-parted and the fat lady has belted her last note. That last "game" against the Spartans effectively ended the 2011 campaign before it even had a chance to get going. The Miami g...

Nebraska's Defense

Based off their film review of this past week's game, Nebraska's defensive staff may anticipate OSU's offensive brain trust to prepare for another dose of blitzkrieg at breakneck pace until the Bucks show the ability to handle it. They may assume that, to slow down the pass rush the B...

What Did You Expect?

After reading junk like this and reading the onslaught of negativity on comment threads, I have to write something somewhere in response. Luke Fickell is not a terrible coach. The job he has done is far from exceptional at this point, but to call him "terrible" even "...

To boo or not to boo, a SOLUTION?

So after skimming the plethora of comments regarding booing in the skull session, I see there are varying view points on what to do.  MY SOLUTION: Stay to sing Carmen Ohio. Whether you boo or not stay and let the team know that we still support and love our buckeyes, through good tim...

Jim Bollman haters, please read

This is a breakdown of each offensive play that was on TV.  I think you will see that execution was the problem today.  Not play calling. So the first 2 series basically weren't on TV except for the 3rd and 9 play on the 2nd possesion. 3rd and 9, Miller runs directly up the ...

Rotating Captains killed Kennedy

So after reading that permanent captains would have undoubtedly prevented the Jammmmaaaaaal (I can never remember if it's 2 m's or 2 a's or both) Berry "situation" from occurring I have come to the conclusion that Luke Fickell is a complete failure as a head coach. A lot...
