don't do this, thanks. not only can 11W get into trouble, but it just isn't the kind of thing that we want on our site in general. how about this: maybe write a blog post where you find hidden gems in the 11W archives that everybody should read that they didn't before? or maybe make a pi...

Looking Ahead to 2013

Typically after polishing off a 12-0 regular season capped by taking some revenge out on your archrival, fans would be lining up for a conference title game with national championship hopes on the line.  Not this year.  Not for this team.  We're perhaps still a bit hungover from w...

12-OH: Thoughts on 'The Game'

Drama before the game Didn't like #26, Michigan FR Dennis Norfleet, getting in the face of Bradley Roby. Norfleet isn't even a starter (unless you count starting kick returner) and he's INITIATING butting heads with one of our star defensive players.  He was looking to cause...

The Dying Throes of BCS Chaos

I write this early Sunday morning, which is probably a bad time because about nine hours or so would allow greater certainty of what is to come.  However, I want to look at possibilities, so allow me the room that I might put on some rose-colored glasses.  We can all laugh at me later. At...

As I sit here thinking back over this season and I enjoy the success this 2012 Buckeye team has enjoyed, I have to think, "What is the historical significance of this team?"  I started thinking about schools and programs who had success while on probation, or had a beloved team that m...

Is Post-Season Ban Beneficial to 2013 Buckeyes?

It's in the books. The 2012 Season for The Ohio State University is over; unblemished, unscathed. Our Buckeyes wont see live football action for 9 months. Go ahead, get your old lady pregnant now, by the time she is screaming out that puppy, the last time we saw the field will still be that wond...

The Game

My father is the reason I went to Ohio State.  He graduated from Ohio State in 1969.  When I was 8, he started taking me to the local alumni club in Houston, TX to watch the games.  By the time I was 18, I was brainwashed.  Like many father/sons, we didn't communicate well....

November 23, 2002

It's been ten years and I still remember the date of the most memorable game I never went to.  On November 22, 2002 my 21 year old drunk self decided at about 2am I'd be making the 100 mile drive to Columbus for The Game.  My beloved Buckeyes were 12-0 and a win assured them a trip...

I've been thinking about this for a few yrs now, and last week it came back into my mind. The battle for Los Angeles last week had both teams (UCLA - USC) wearing home uniforms. This is the second time in the past 7yrs or so that both teams wore home jerseys,  and it looks like the only dow...
