The Battle of the Bulge and OSU

My father was a proud member of the 7th Armored Division during WWII. At first he was a gunner on a half-track, but by the time they were assigned to the Netherlands he had been moved to a unit known as G2. G2 was a branch of military intelligence (my dad swore that was the greatest oxymoron ever in...

The Big Sixteen?

I have a crazy idea that most would buy into. The Big Ten becoming a Superconference! If Maryland and Rutgers are added, things could get interesting... Maryland and Rutgers will join the Big Ten Virginia Tech will want to become a Big Ten team. Jim Delaney will laugh at VT and take their rival U...

Wisconsin - My Five Thoughts

1. We Won!!! 11-0. Way to go Buckeyes! 2. Since a lot of 11W readers mistake any criticism for total rejection I'll say it again - this was a great win against a very good team that wanted to beat us. Terrific, terrific result! 3. Our pass defense stinks. It wasn't just letting a guy who h...

Its HATE week.

God bless Youtube and modern day technological advancements. My personal favorite Ohio State-Michigan of all time. Gives me chills (and maybe tears every once in a while, shhhh) everytime. My favorite Ohio State-Michigan game of all time, in its entirety. The game truly was a tribute to...

Don't Forget About the Basketball Buckeyes

The Ohio State football team is 10-0 and playing in its biggest game of the season. But don’t turn away too far from what is going on on the hardwood. The Basketball Buckeyes are actually ranked higher than the football team – 4th to 6th. On Saturday, though, all eyes will be turned to M...

Should We Even Try to Get Timmons?

  Not to knock on Timmons (I actually want him to be a Buckeye), but would he ever get used to his full ability if he becomes a Buckeye?  With Jalin Marshal, Elliot, and Braxton, what place would there be for Timmons?  I wouldn't want him relagated to special teams and I wouldn'...

"...and three things are bad."

I'm watching the NFL Network and Rich Eisen has verified to me that he is a "DA." I'm trying to be politically correct here so I'm not spelling out "DA." If you can't figure it out then; 1. you are not a true Buckeye Fan 2. you do not know Eisen is a u of ichiga...

Bourbon; Blanton's and Buffalo Trace

LOVE the weekly snippet about Bourbon. Living in Utah (The Land behind the Zion Curtain), my bourbon selection has been greatly reduced by our wise and compassionate state government. And NOW you know at least one of the reasons why they are called "Utards." The 11W posting about making a...

Never a good year for a bowl ban but...

IF the Buckeyes go undefeated and we weren't serving the bowl ban year,  Buckeye Nation would be in an uproar over the fact that we would very likely not get the chance to play in the NC game. Winning every game and a bowl, when you are Ohio State, usually means you're National Champs.....

Ohio State vs Oregon

Hello everyone, I was just sitting here thinking about Ohio State vs some of the other better teams in the country.  Then I started thinking about OSU and Oregon..  How does everyone else think this game would play out.  I think if Ohio State's offense vs Indiana and Ohio States&#...

Illinois - Five Thoughts

ONE. Illinois is a bad team. We have faced other bad teams and struggled - we beat UAB by only 14 and their second win just came against a team that hasn't won yet. We recently struggled against a Purdue who aren't very good. So in that sense cruising as we did is really nice to see. But IL ...

OT: Batman Thru the Years

The development of the Batman series has played well into my life's progression.  As a grade schooler, I was brought up watching the Warner Bros tv series with Rino know it well by the animated "KUNG POW" and "BAM" type phrases.  It was a rudimentary se...

What Can We Really Expect Against Illinois?

On paper this is the best in the B1G against the worst. This should be a complete, total mismatch. And yet . . . The 2012 Buckeyes have faced several other teams they were much, much better than, and only played dominant football in the second half of the first game of the year. As much as any other...
