Why are Bucks 10 point dogs?

Riddle me this, Batman... The Buckeyes have the 8th ranked offense and 15th ranked total defense, according to the NCAA.  So then why, after beating the nation's #2, #4, #7 and #10 ranked defenses (3 of the 4 were shreddings), are the Buckeyes 10-point underdogs to Alabama's 16th ranked offe...

Why it doesn't bother me that Urban isn't B1G-COY.

I don't have any problem with Ohio State coaches not being honored in this way very often.  The other B1G coaches see Ohio State as always being the biggest school with the most money, the best facilities, and the best recruiting footprint in the whole region.  Ohio State recruits itse...

Bo Pelini, no Buckeye stickers for you...

Jeez, could Bo Pelini be more of a debbie downer when it comes to coaching in the Big Ten or his homecoming to Columbus this weekend?  Pelini was a starting free safety for a number of years at Ohio State, as many of us know, and was a captain his senior year.  Yet, pretty much from the ge...

Daugherty giving credit to OSU:

http://cincinnati.com/blogs/daugherty/2012/03/23/the-mourning-line-323/ Paul Daugherty, Cincinnati Enquirer, was catching a lot of flack here on 11W this morning for that piece he posted.  However, he also wrote this where he gives a lot of credit to how OSU played point by point. At...

CFN's Miami Nostalgia

College Football News this morning has about 3 or 4 articles reminiscing about just how f'ing awesome the Miami Hurricanes football program was over the last 30 years.  My question is, WTF?!  Did Ohio State get the red carpet treatment for its transgression??  No.  Did the...

3 Most Annoying Sports Phrases

Alright, it must be that time of year where the weather turns sour, daylight starts to wane, and I turn into a major grouch, because I'm about to get into some of the headache-inducing, blackboard-scratching, O'Donnel-style assanine phrases that continually spring up during sports analysi...

Hating the Buckeyes

Immediately after today's game, John Saunders said something to the effect of, "Ohio State did not look like the #2 team in the nation today."  This is the same man who not 5 seconds after the clock hit 0:00 on the 50 yard line in the Rose Bowl asked Jim Tressel if this 2010 te...

Special Teams - Remove your panic goggles...

A lot's been made of Buckeye Special Teams through the first 3 games.  Despite the risk of coming off as condescending, I think Buckeye fans are too spoiled for their own good, and would bitch about the sky being blue if it were sunny and 60 degrees during a 70-0 route of Michigan in lat...
