Hey it is Kansas Hate Week

Reasons to hate Kansas. Or at least feel really sorry for them: * Tornados. Lots of them. * A state so bad, even it’s namesake city refuses to be in the state. * Just like the Wizard of Oz suggests, […]

NFLand NCAA step in it on Pryor decision

I am glad that the NFL has allowed Terrelle to pursue his career and wish him the best of luck. But man did the NFL and NCAA step in it big time as “CBS blogger Mike Freeman notes”:http://mike-freeman.blogs.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/6264363/31396933. By enforcing […]

The Rehabilitation of Jim Tressel

About a month ago, Tressel resigned under pressure from the university as the many allegations swirled around the program. Cars, cash for memorabilia, cover ups, etc etc etc. A tough day for Tressel and a tough time for the program. […]

Where are the great sports apps?

I am a huge sports enthusiast. I love the Buckeyes (despite all their current woes!). I follow with interest the Seahawks, the Browns, USC, UW, the Big Ten, the Pac Ten, the SEC. I watch excessive amounts of college football, […]

It’s a Great Day to be a Buckeye!

Getting your Minnesota hate on

OK it is hard to really find great reasons to hate Minnesota football. Their current level of ineptitude is historic. But I can always reach back to the events of early 1972 when the “UM team and fans attacked the […]

Odd/interesting college football numbers

* Michigan is a “25 point favorite”:http://www.vegasinsider.com/college-football/odds/las-vegas/ over Bowling Green this weekend. Really? Did anyone watch Michigan give up 37 to UMass? Not a betting man but tempted to start. * Ohio State ranked “11th by Sagarin for purposes of […]

The best of the day’s college football reading…

* Apparently “some Miami writers think that Ohio Stadium is not that loud”:http://www.thebuckeyebattlecry.com/?p=7515 and some Miami players think that “Everybody wants to come see us. They ain’t coming just to see Ohio State.” Yes that is correct, everyone will want […]

This is the best week of the season for Boise State

Congrats to them, they won a great game and got a nice pop in the polls and can dream of going to the championship game. Everyone is all like “OMG Boise might play in the championship”:http://bcsguru.blogspot.com/2010/09/boise-state-usc-two-paths-to-national.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+BcsGuru+(BCS+Guru). But really this is […]

Looking back at Marshall, ahead to Miami

Quality start for OSU last night. Diversified offense — tight end and fullback catching balls! Pryor looked Rose-Bowl sharp. Defense was solid tho not as aggressive as you might hope — but that will come as they gel. Special teams […]

Servicing my college football addiction

Finally, the first week of college football. And the first week of servicing my addiction. Here is the plan for this year: * In person attendance at games: We’ll make the November Penn State and Michigan games at Ohio Stadium. […]

The last empty Saturday of the year has passed…

…College football kicks off this week! Finally. Getting ready for the season: * “Live odds”:http://www.bangthebook.com/football-betting/live-football-odds.php. Not that I bet, nor do I believe that odds have much to do with expected outcomes, but still interesting to peruse. * “CFB stats”:http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/ […]

4.5 weeks to kickoff! Go Bucks!

Wow, August is upon us, only 4.5 weeks to “OSU’s kickoff with Marshall”:http://www.dispatch.com/live/content/sports/stories/2010/08/01/cfbx01-gi89c2m8-1.html?sid=101.
