Home Uniforms for "The Game"

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...

Is the Big Ten a Union conference?

     I don't know about you, but I've always considered the Big Ten to be a Union conference, by which I mean a conference from states who fought for the North in the Civil War.  The SEC is the Confederate conference and the Big Ten is the Union conference.  Do ...

Potential Quad Division Setup for a 16 team B1G

Even though I personally hate the idea of a 16 team B1G, if Emperor Delaney has decided it has to happen, Quad divisons could keep us from basically becoming two conferences where you play one team from the other side occasionally (like, every 8 years kind of ocasionally).  With the addition o...

Venting; The Weak Conference

I go out of town for a few days and go off grid. Get back and what, what, WHAT? The Big Ten expands and 1. adds schools that suck in sports 2. adds schools that don't strengthen our chances of winning national championships in the 2 sports that matter. WTF?! Now, I know, without exploring, that...

Michigan and the Ten Year Butt Hurt

Michigan fans, it would seem, are obsessed. Under normal circumstances they obsess with things such as wide-spread crime, nasty weather and if anyone really cares about that antiquated first cousin rule. But during the first decade of the brand new century Michigan fans quit paying attention to unio...

Dotting History...Continued

Upon having the chance to rap with upcoming The Game i-dotter Joceyln Smallwood, she had such great depth to her responses that it proved difficult to get her takes into just one front page post without it resembling War and Peace. As such, I didn't want her in-depth takes to be all for naught s...

Good Thanksgiving Weekend Recipe...

    So you want to learn how to cook a wolverine do you? Well there's a GOOD reason they refer to the wolverine as "stink bear", and for most galloping gourmet's, they can't get past the smell far enough to even consider bringing even a hind quarter into the kitchen...

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.....
