Eleven Warriors is on Fire

No, really. There are flames and it's hot and OUCH. So, Derek has accepted a new position and will be taking his talents to Scout Beach. It all happened so quickly and we're very excited for him – he'll bring a fantastic skill set to his role working under Bill Greene. ...

All Eyes on Us

There are plenty of eyes outside of Columbus, Ohio that are currently pinned directly on the football and basketball programs of The Ohio State University. We know this because many are accompanied by a voice commenting on everything from our special teams coach and his ‘distaste’ for ...

Tough Outs: Perspective on Tonight's "Shocking" Loss

For many of us (and especially for the very colorfully-spoken among us on the open thread), tonight's loss to the Fighting Totos of Wichita State was probably one of the most deflating losses in a long time. Yes, the debacle and Madison was ugly, and it always hurts to lose in Ann Arbor, but the...

Top 5 College Coaches that belonged in the NFL

The NFL is known for college coaches that were bad NFL coaches, but what about the other way around? Some aren't familiar with the idea, but these people exist. Let's get with the countdown, and if there are any I missed, let me know in the comments. Okay, here we go: 5. Bill Callahan - Neb...

Playing basketball in a dome vs arena

I am not going to jinx us and predict Ohio State going to the Final Four; rather, this is about teams playing in domes in the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight games having an advantage against teams that played their Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight games in more traditional arenas.  This year Ohio S...

An Apology

I just wanted to apologize to everyone for today's Skull Session, and explain a bit about what happened. I already talked about it on twitter, but the short story is that I had not slept for a few days, ended up having to work a much longer workday than usual yesterday, and when I was finally ab...

Q's Time When He's Clearly Hot??

Great win by the Bucks yesterday!  Aaron - stellar.  DT - awesome.  Shannonator - beast mode.  Q - killin' it softly.  Here's my gripe:  why did Thad take Q out when he was clearly feeling it with the ball yesterday???  He was getting good looks and sh...

Wishing Alex the Best

Yesterday was Alex's last day with Eleven Warriors. He's moving on to Bucknuts after receiving an offer that he'd be crazy to turn down. Alex has been instrumental in building Eleven Warriors to the place it is today and he'll be sorely missed. If we could have cloned him, we w...

BeeWunnGee. The Time Traveler's Take

On the eve of greatness. Beewunngee. Something has occurred to me that I have to believe has occurred to many other Buckeye fans throughout the year.  There doesn't seem to be all that "conference arrogance" during the current basketball season, like has been seen so recently de...

I'll just leave this right here.

In today's Skull Session, Nicholas reported on Jim Delany's idle threat to move the entire Big Ten to Division III. I agree with Nicholas that it is a ridiculous proposition. He makes several points - bulleted, in fact... Here are a few other problems with the supposed voluntary transiti...

Settling the Matta: Unfinished Business

What a difference eight games can make... Feeling somewhat like a sinner following a miraculous conversion experience, I find myself singing the indelible line from Amazing Grace: "I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see." Thad Matta is a helluva basketball coach. Fo...

Coach Kerry Coombs, the Algebra Teacher?

A while back, I made a comment about Coach Coombs being my Algebra teacher my freshman year in High School. Jason asked if I would be willing to share my experience and share a couple of stories, so I reached out to some of my old classmates for their best Coombs anecdotes. The stories they shared w...

Michigan Arrests Under Hoke VS OSU Arrests Under Meyer

According to many Michigan fans, Urban Meyer runs a dirty program filled with arrest issues. Michigan on the other hand is a clean program where their student-athletes perform with the upmost integrity, rarely if ever running afoul of the law.
