First and 2: Recapping week 11 Top-10 Bold Prediction: USC upsets Washington Washington was just one of a slew of highly ranked teams to go down on Saturday.  The question is, if the Huskies bounce back and still win the Pac 12 with only one loss on their resume, can they still m...

PLAYOFF SYSTEM: My solution for every problem with the CFP

By now I believe most people (including myself, and excluding most Bama fans), would like to see an 8-team playoff in college football. Simple solution, at least at the surface, but the problems with the current playoff system run far deeper than to say the whole thing would be solved by&n...

Horseshoe Ramblings

My very first visits to the 'Shoe were during Junior High and High School, when a group of us would pile into the most road-worthy van at the time and trek to Columbus for the annual Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) State Track and Field Championships. It was incredi...

Under the Fedora - I Might Be Lion

I'm rooting for Penn State.   Well, that's not exactly true.  What I should say is that I am no longer rooting against Penn State.  Well, that is not exactly right either.  I hate Penn State.  I hate their history (which I really don't care to discuss).  I hate their er...

If you missed the Dubgate on Saturday or missed the bacon morsels present, don't fear I will tell you how to make them.  These are a great item to take to a tailgate or party.  Mainly because they have bacon, but also because they taste like something that will make you thirsty. Ingredi...

CFB Three & Out: Week 10

First and 10: Recapping week 9 Top-10 Bold Prediction: Florida State downs Clemson It was close, but some late penalties cost the Seminoles in this one.  That, and the fact that their offensive line more closely resembles swiss cheese than a capable blocking unit.  I wi...

CFB Three & Out: Week 9

First and 9: Recapping week 8 Top-10 Bold Prediction: Aggies rack up over 500 yards on Tide It was actually Texas A&M's red-zone defense that kept them in the game until late in the third quarter, as their offense was held well under their average yardage.  Alabama is looking...

LCT's Training Log

Howdy folks. I've decided to use this space as a training log to see if we might develop a subgroup of S&C-minded 11Wers to help motivate/push each other on the path to PRs/gainzZz/fitness/whatever.  I've been lifting for a little over four years (started after we brought the middle...

Under the Fedora - The "i"s Have It

The Buckeyes played with Rutgers last Saturday.  They looked good (you might say that their performance was easy on the "i"s--you probably wouldn't, but you might).  Chris Ash surely has his work cut out for him.  Not much more to say about the game than has already been said: &n...

OSU as a Homecoming Opponent

I was thinking about tomorrows game while driving home, and it got me thinking.   Knowing that teams chose a homecoming opponent based on how easy it would be to beat that team, I wondered when the last time OSU was a homecoming opponent. I could only go back 3 years, and then the data is...
