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&...

Saban to the NFL?

I've got The Herd playing on ESPNU, & according to Collin Cowherd, there's rumors of Nick Saban leaving Alabama for the NFL again. They think the Browns might actually go after him at the end of the season. To me, that would make sense since cleveland has his former RB Trent Richardson, ...

Braxton Miller Passing

I was taking a look at BM's stats on the season and just realized that his pass attempts so far this season are just about where BM finished the season last year with. 2011 PC/PA: 85/157 PCT: 54.1% Yards: 1159 TD/INT: 13/4 Sacks: 39 Efficiency: 138.4   2012 (7 games to date) PC/PA...

Which Big Ten Team Is Your Favorite?

Despite all the bad press, the Big Ten teams have some of the best fans in the country.  When you get great universities that pump out lots of great degrees, the students spread across the country and accomplish great things.  I've lived in Las Vegas and now Los Angeles and I see OSU a...

Best Twitter Profile Ever, Random Question

 https://twitter.com/JabbatheHoke  I found this twitter profile today, & I thought it was pretty good. I figured some people on this site would really enjoy this, & that the world in general just needs to know about it. In order to post this, I have to have a minimum of atleast 20...

Rod Smith's Fumbles

This topic was brought up in the comments of Five Things and since it took a few minutes to research, I thought I'd share Rod Smith's fumbling history for those that might be interested since he put the ball on the ground again at Indiana. 2011 Season: 29 carries, 2 fumbles Game 1: ...

Three Things - Indiana

I had a day to stew on this, but I had to post some thoughts on the Indiana game.  I can not give you five coherent observations and analysis like Chris, you will have to settle for three random ramblings: 1) Officiating - I hate to "blame" things on the stripes, but was Mike Hart th...

A Bowl Ban This Year Is Not So Bad

I was considering this idea before last night's game, but I still think it holds a lot of truth. Maybe a bowl ban this year isn't so bad. I mean, there's a lot to be gained from a (potential) undefeated season even without the opportunity to play after The Game. Before you click away fr...

The Indiana Win in GIFs

Warning: This page checks in at around 20MB. If you're on a cellular network or dial-up, turn back! Turn back! It was closer than it should have been and mother of god, that defense, but Urban Meyer's Buckeyes improved to 7-0 with a 52-49 win over the Hoosiers in Bloomington Saturday night....

Just a thought...

Whether it's been for Across the Field, Across the Court, interviews for my other articles or roundtables, or booking guests for the Dubcast, I've reached out to others countless times and asked them to generously give their thoughts and their time to this site. NOW: This is not a site rule...

Pink Out Purdue

  you're on campus today, perhaps your building is saturated with little pink business cards for the following cause: http://pinkoutpurdue.com/ I suppose this is an interesting idea, but I don't recall how popular it was for the Penn State game last year.  Just can't see i...

Could we really lose to Indiana?

In his Wednesday skull session Chad observes:  YARRRGH IT'S A TRAP. Meyer spoke briefly about his concerns for Indiana this week during the B1G teleconference:     Meyer said he's concerned about execution on defense and stopping Indiana because Hoosiers do things o...

Ezekiel Elliott Enjoys Visit for Nebraska Game

2013 RB commit Ezekiel Elliott took in his first Ohio State game this past Saturday when the Buckeyes took on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Elliott committed to the Buckeyes April 1st and has remained solid in his commitment ever since. I caught up with Elliott to find out how he liked his first game ex...
