AP Rankings Week 2

I've been curious as to how volatile (or not) the Poll Voters actually are as a group.  So I decided I was going to make a spreadsheet to track it and show the progress of the Buckeyes.  Right now I just wanted a quick resource to track changes so, I'm just showing who won or lo...

Is the B1G ignoring Oklahoma or not?

So OU's President essentially "turned on the red light" regarding the future conference affiliation of the Sooners this past week.  Should the B1G get into the fray with Oklahoma?  I say yes, and for that matter I think Kansas and Missouri should be strongly considered...

My week one review

Wisconsin 51 – UNLV 17 Prediction: Wis 54 – UNLV 12.  Pretty much nailed this one as Wilson looks to be an added demension to the otherwise poundy pound Wisconsin offense. Michigan State 28 – Youngstown State 6 Prediction: MSU 49 – YSU 10.  Well I certain...

Strange Days

First posted at Inside The Shoe by Brady These must be strange times for former Ohio St. head coach Jim Tressel. Strange times indeed. For the past decade, the first game week of the season was filled with countless interviews, press conferences, depth chart squabbles and meetings with his co...

Is it bad that every time I see Brady Hoke I think of Fred Flintstone, John Balushi, or Norm from Cheers?     Is it a wonder that his last name happens to rhyme with such words as: Choke or Joke?   While Rich Rod did everything he could to kill "The Ga...

Connor Crowell to wear 36?

I was a little concerned that this new kid would come to Ohio State and automatically start wearing number 36. I mean he is out on redshirt his first season here, healing from an injury and he is still keeping the vaunted number? I just read a little piece from Ourhonordefend and it seems th...

Todd Boeckman vs Terrelle Pryor Part Deux

Initial reports out of camp have the quarterback battle pairing down to the elder statesman and the young buck. This is not surprising as one is long on experience and the other long on simmering potential. That leaves Ohio State’s offensive minds two options to explore as far as ‘how...

Heritage and Tradition

On a cold December night, a woman is wheeled into a delivery room at St. Luke's Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.  After winning the fight with the nurses, she clung to an ashtray with a grey football attached to its center like it was going to protect her from the coming pain.  As the s...
