Targeting

I honestly can't really see much of a difference between these two hits.  Obviously both players led with their upperbody/shoulder and there was some incidental helmet contact on each hit...Roby was ejected for "targeting" but this player for UCLA wasn't.  Can they even e...

Happy Anniversary ! 94 years ago Chic Harley led The Ohio State University Buckeyes to their first win 13-3 over the School Up North on Oct 25, 1919. In 1941, James Thurber described Harley's running skills for the New York City newspaper, PM, "If you never saw him run with a football, we c...

Big Ten Championship Game

As the weeks go by and the victories pile up, it saddens me to think that another season of Buckeye football will eventually come to an end. However, there is a sense of joy, a sense of happiness in me which comes from the fact that this season will not end on the 30th of November. Additional opport...

What to Root For: Week 9

Now that the BCS standings have been published, I thought it would be interesting to start a weekly blogpost of what upsets Buckeye fans should be rooting for.  (*Reminder Buckeye Nation, the '02 team started at #6 in the BCS standings, we win and history says we'll be in.  Breathe...

The Series History: Ohio State/Penn State

When looking at the overall series 15-13 (without vacated wins) you would believe Ohio State and Penn State are evenly matched rivals. However, the 15-13 (.536) series mark is misleading. Penn State amassed the majority of its wins against Ohio State before joining the Big Ten in 1993. Before ...

Justin Hilliard

Just a quick question for anybody who knows... Obviously, the Iowa game was last week and on hand was Justin Hilliard from Cincy checking out not only his Hawkeye brother, but the Bucks as well! Anybody know how his visit went? I looked around on some sites but didn't really catch anything to ho...

Real issue in defense

This is a section from GAMETIME's post and I think its one of the most insightful  posts and gets to the heart of the problem (though I dont think I would agree with the last line, also dont know the source of  the research he quotes). What do you guys think  : &nb...

Weekly Probabilities 10/22

Here they are!  Thanks to Buckeyes8222, I remember how to do the more complicated calculations now.  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 ...

The National Narrative (A Defense of Ohio State)

The debate over who is most deserving to play in the BCS NC is in full swing. It is amazing to see how passionate some fans and even national commentators are in their advocacy of Oregon/FSU/Baylor/Mizzou as the most deserving team to play in the title game. Two points are taken for granted by every...

The SOS Argument

I was reading through the blogs this morning, and when I saw all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth over the BCS and its unfairness (which I openly participate in, as well), I thought I'd look at the perception of the SOS or lack thereof for the 4 teams at the top. I looked at the records for ...

The Big Ten Problem

      It is the elephant in the room, and it’s not invisible.  It is pointed out by bloggers on the internet, and talking heads at ESPN.  The Ohio State University Buckeyes, in its current state of being undefeated for 19 games in a row, is almost relegated to undefeat...

The Ohio State Effect: Iowa

Another week and another opponent's defensive 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 Iowa's stats before playing and after playing Ohio State. The Hawkeyes were able to i...

NoVA Buckeye Power Index Week 8: Clemson'd

BURN IT. BURN IT ALL. IT HURTS SO MUCH I CAN'T BEAR IT ANYMORE! WHY IS ALABAMA STILL A TOP 3 TEAM? WHY IS TEXAS A&M STILL RANKED? WHY IS HOUSTON RANKED #26 EVEN THOUGH THEY SUCK? WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO GET WISCONSIN OR NEBRASKA IN THE TOP 25? BURN IT ALL! BURN IT ALL TO A CD. THAT WAY, WE CAN...

NUMEROLOGY STATS AND WHATEVERELSE II

Numbers can be fun as well as stats, they have nothing really to do with what happens on the field but can be predictors.   6-0  to  7-0 When tOSU is 6-0 our record for game 7 is 22-4  0.759. We are actually better on the road 11-1  0.917, than at home 11-3  0.786. G...

Bert Being Bert

Bert, Your team is on a four-game losing streak. The average score in those losses? 19-39. You just lost to South Carolina 7-52. Yet, you felt the need to open your pie hole last week. Quotes from Bert at an Arkansas booster club:     "I came to the SEC for a va...

We'll Be Just Fine

Buckeye fans, This may be completely redundant, but let's think about the good here. Last night we lost a battle to PSU for Mike Gesiciki's services for the class of 2014. Let me be clear, when we play PSU in 8 days... Mike might be a potential Nittany Lion, but he will see the real pr...

Trevion Thompson 4 star WR

Hey Buckeye fans, Just wanted to share yet another recruiting thread, but this time talk about someone who may becoming a popular target as of late for the good guys in scarlet and gray. As we all know, our offense and Urban need highly skilled receivers in order to function at the level we desire....

The Series History: Ohio State/Iowa

Ohio State leads the all-time series 45-14-3, has was won 12 of the last 13 games and 27 of the last 32 games. Quick Hitters: Ranked Ohio State teams are 7-1 against unranke...

Glenville

Greetings 11w community. I am a longtime visitor to this site and only recently got my membership. This is my first blog post so bear with me. I was curious as to why the huge amount of D1 talent that Glenville produces hasn't translated to much playoff success? IMO its a lack of any kind of kicking...

NKOHL ratings week 7

Today's polls all seem to be based on perception's, opinion, and bias. I have attempted to create a ranking system that will rank all teams equally and fairly without any human element. The system is simple. When a team beats another team they gain points. Points are determined by the oppone...
