Buckeye Basketball: The Two-Faced Monster

Jekyll and Hyde The 2011-12 edition of Ohio State basketball has been nothing short of a comparison to one of the many high flyin’ roller coasters at Cedar Point Amusement Park.  Its peaks, valleys, twists, turns, and even loops have made for one wild ride.  In reality, the...

OSU 1 and Done? It has happened...

Ohio state is a #2 seed.  History says #2 seeds only have a 96.2% chance of victory.  Tasting victory a mere 104 times out of 108 opportunities.  Ok, you can smell the sarcasm... but #15 seeds have won 4 times. #15 Seeds are never feared, they are the unwanted, the untalented, ...

Respect the Basement / March Madness Challenge

"Quite clearly, 11W has filled an unmet need for Buckeyes fans by abandoning milquetoast, sanitized commentary for real talk without forsaking quality or sanity" That line echos in my head ... and like the day that Howard Stern hangs up his headphones and stops doing his live show, ...

Ohio State vs. Loyola (MD) Preview

The first round matchups for schools that are seeded #1 or #2 tend to give us a glimpse at a smaller school that may not be on our radar for the other eleven months out of the year, and Ohio State’s game against the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds on Friday night is no exception.  Unless you&rs...

Urban Meyer & Brady Hoke 2013 Recruiting Comparison

When the dust had settled last month and the 2012 recruiting classes had been established, it was clear that Ohio State and M*chigan had separated themselves from the rest of the Big Ten.  Based on Scout.com’s rankings, OSU and UM finished 3rd and 4th in the country, respectively, and ...

LaQuinton Ross

Somebody please explain to me why this guy doesn't play? He adds length to the rotation at 6'8, He shoots the lights out from three point range, and he's thick enough at 225 pounds to help sully rebound underneath! It can't be a defensive problem.... anyone ever see Deshaun Thomas...

Ohio State 2013 Defensive Recruiting Needs/Offers

Last week I wrote about some of the offensive needs that the team would encounter after the 2012 season, and what recruiting offers were currently out there to address those needs.  Now it's time to focus on what wins championships, according to the old saying, and that is defense. ...

OSU 2013 Offensive Recruiting Needs

While most of us are still recovering from Urban Meyer's in-your-face recruiting domination with the 2012 class, his newly formed staff is already looking ahead.  We are eager to find out what new faces will be on the field in 2012, and already they are checking out high school athletes ...

Which bench player looked best vs Illinois?

I thought Ross looked like a true 1st teamer vs JV in the time he got (probably because he is). We know he can shoot but looked good driving as well. The other night an announcer said even Mr. Defense himself, Bobby Knight, kept subpar defenders in the game if they were a true scor...

Buckeyes, Buckeyes everywhere

I am interested in folks' recollections of far-flung places where they have run into their Buckeye brethren. Some of my own: 1) While living in Belize for two years where I was a biologist at an eco-lodge/research station, we were visited by an OSU Alumni Association tour group which stay...

Bucks wear lavender shirts

In a scarlet and gray world, a lavender shirt sticks out. And that’s the point, said Ohio State football’s new director of performance, Mickey Marotti. In putting the Buckeyes through the first winter conditioning program under coach Urban Meyer, he has made the lavender shirt the...
