Cure For The Curse

Ah, yes...The Curse! SI knows exactly what it's doing.  By showing all four quarterbacks, they can't miss on three! Those are premium odds, and the curse will live on, except for that one quarterback who leads his team to victory.  The Evil Forces will get theirs.  But...

Koolaid: An Under The Influence Expose'

The college football world has been under the influence of a specially formulated SEC mind-tampering powder for about seven long years now.  It was never branded with a particular name, it is that insidious.  But it has been traced to certain power brokers within the halls of SEC schoo...

The Hater Welcome

To the haters, and the snickering doubters, and the snake oil salesmen of the SEC. And especially to Fat Erkle: Welcome to your nightmare. It is not a conference that will stand victorious at the first ever playoff for a national championship...it is not a culture of entitlement that wi...

Really? Like a Box of Chocolates?

  I love Football.  And I love chocolate.   World Class chocolate. First off, no, I'm not a woman, as if that is a prerequisite for chocolate loving.  There's just something about a world class chocolate confectionery that is soothingly comfortable to me.  I...

Acclimatized Buckeyes

Acclimatized. If you were to be taken by plane from sea level up to the summit of Mt. Everest and dropped off in your favorite fur laden survival suit... You would double over in pain, be unconscious in moments, and dead soon after.  However, if you were to hike up from a base camp, and t...

I Dreamed a Dream

A weird dream I actually had... Ohio State was playing in the SEC only in football somehow (maybe Notre Lame inspired this part).  We were bullying everybody in the SEC and the media was frantic.  That part of the dream was like animals in the sports talking head world...sorry, I couldn&#...

Thank You, Christian Bryant

I know a lot of the comments on Eleven Warriors have wished warm regards to Captain Christian Bryant, but I wanted to pause for a moment and reflect on what this young man has put on the line...and publicly thank him for what he has meant to this team.   He lost perhaps a future in the NFL (but...

The Time Traveler: Analysis of Anger

<poof> Greetings, time liners.  I have popped in to your present to assure you of the future.  It doesn't take a Time Traveler to tell you what's coming.  Just trust it.  I once told Ray, a friend of mine, "If you build it, they will come."  But that...

Mark May To Be Indicted?

From the T & C Dept*: Pittsburgh Police authorities have arrested three Pitt Panthers for the possession of a bong, a quantity of heroin, and a deli ham and cheese sandwich (a former NYC officer who works in Pittsburgh now called it a "grinder").  Drew Carswell, Khaynin Mosley-Sm...

BeeWunnGee. The Time Traveler's Take

On the eve of greatness. Beewunngee. Something has occurred to me that I have to believe has occurred to many other Buckeye fans throughout the year.  There doesn't seem to be all that "conference arrogance" during the current basketball season, like has been seen so recently de...

Penn State Sanctions To Be Undone?

If you have not read the entire 43 page lawsuit filed Jan 2, 2013 by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania against the NCAA, then you need to do so immediately. A link to the document is already provided by the staff at Eleven Warriors. I, like most people, did not look beyond the surface of the publ...
