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&#...

SABAN COULD LEAVE FOR TEXAS

I just heard from CBS just now.  Saban has stated the only school Saban would leave for is TEXAS.  It has been confirmed that the wife has been spotted looking at real estate in the Austin area.  I have said along...once Saban leaves Bama, that Bama will go back to being 8-3 and hop...

Ohio St., B1G Hoops Kick Off in Style

Big Ten went 9-0 on the first night of basketball action.  Most of these games were expected to be blowouts, but a good win for Wisconsin on a neutral site against a solid St. John's squad.  Most teams won in a dominant fashion and Purdon't escaped Northern Kentucky.  Yes, Pur...

SEC Non-conference wins

I keep hearing that last year's wins and the long winning streak should not help OSU get into the NCG so I thought I would see what fantastic wins the SEC has in non-conference games this year that shows their CLEAR SUPERIORITY. Below is a complete list of the SEC's non-conference victi...

Worst places to live if your a Buckeyes fan.

9-0 is a great feeling gentlemen!! This bye weekend the Bucks will be getting some well deserved rest. I wanted to share my story of what I feel is the worst place in the country to live if you are a Bucks fan. I grew up in Cleveland so I know its biased for me to say that it is one of the greatest ...

I figure after the big result last night, some of you might appreciate a special Friday probabilities update :).  I've been telling you guys not to worry, trust the numbers.  Last night we got one step closer.  For now I'm not going to include Baylor, if the polls start to giv...

What to Root For: Week 11

Week 9 here.  Week 10 here. The Buckeyes sit idle this week while all four other title contenders play.  Hopefully it's the week for upsets and for chaos! I was 3-0 last week, which puts me at 10-1 on the year by result (not score).  Last week's predictions and results ...

OSU vs. Trolls - an Interesting Statistic

So it's a bye week and I am starving for Buckeye Football conversation.  I jumped on everyone's most least favorite sports website SEC Central ESPN and was browsing around.  (I just absolutely love how they are using Facebook for their comments now..........). Some SEC punks wer...

I need some help from BuckeyeNation!

Over the past year I have been arguing with a family member.  He stated that he would rather have Brady Hoke over Urban Meyer any day of the week specifically based on how good Hoke recruits.  I told him that Hoke does recruit fairly well but that a lot of his 4 or 5 star recruit...

Weekly Probabilities 11/5

Here they are!  Again, although the process is objective, I acknowledge my probabilities of individual games are subjective, though I think this gives us a pretty good picture of where we are at. As always, my numbers will be attached for anyone who would like to critique. Assumptions: -Ohi...

Still Skeptical About This Defense...

...especially in light of this team's big-picture goals. I know what the stats say: 9th in the nation in total & scoring, no runs of 20+ yards, just to name a couple. This is more of an "eye-test" thing. Here's what I see: Defensive ends that lose contain on a *regular* basis....

Five Things: Walsh

1. I found it interesting that Scott was in the starting lineup with Craft, Smith, Ross and Amir, effectively pushing Thompson to the bench. I love having Craft and Scott out there to hawk the starting opponent's PG and SG but whether or not that lasts probably hinges on whether or not Craf...

A What-If Scenario

Hello 11W friends! I graduated as a Dayton Flyer, so I am not in any position to even suggest that the athletic director at another school (even if I'm an obsessed fan of that school's football and basketball team) should be called out, fired, or anything like that. That being said, I was r...

The Ohio State Effect: Purdue

Another week and another opponent's stats get flipped upside down. It's always interesting to see how a team's stats change after playing Ohio State. Below you will be able to compare Purdue's stats before playing, and after playing, Ohio State. Coming into the game against Ohio...

A Matter of Toughness

Like many of you taking in the U of M/MSU game yesterday, I was not surprised to see that the Wolverines looked hapless.  The Michigan offense was manhandled by the Spartan defense.  There's an interesting discussion going on over at MGOBLOG (where it seems I am relegated to tro...

Love Me Some Archie!

Watching Archie on the Purdue telecast live. Archie is always such a class act! For about an hour and a half BTN has been advertising it and  the typical highlights are there: Michigan got hosed, if Franklin didn't get injured.......Etc. Etc. When they ask Archie about it he is a true pro ...

The Series History: Ohio State/Purdue

Saturday the Buckeyes travel to the Bermuda Triangle of the B1G Ten. For whatever mystic, seismic, bullshit reason Ohio State has lost three of the last four games (two straight) in West Lafayette. The Buckeyes have been outscored 81-83 losing by an average score of 20-21. Hopefully Urban Meyer is ...

The Ohio State Effect: Penn State

What to Root For: Week 10

Last week's list here. Well, I was astonishingly close on some games, and WAY off on a few in terms of the score.  I did a surprisingly impressive 7-1 in terms of result.  Last week's predictions and results (with scores as away-home): Wake Forest at #7 Miami (FL): Predict...
