Know Your Opponent: USC Trojans

Quick-hit thoughts after the game

Bulleted thoughts to make Craig proud: Pryor didn’t give up on the first INT.  SC score was inevitable that early. Second quarter was complete reversal from first – SC controlled, OSU offense stuttered.  Not going on fourth and 1 and taking the 3 has me worried, but team is playing well overall. D-line and O-line

College Football Saturday Open Thread

The day starts off fairly slowly, with a pretty meager noon set.  The Wisconsin/Fresno State game is interesting, but ultimately isn’t a marquis matchup.  The day really starts off at 3:30 with the game in Ann Arbor on ABC.  From there we’ve got the big one at 8 o’clock on ESPN. As much as I’m

What do the Buckeyes’ injuries mean –

Last Friday there was a moment of panic among some Buckeye fans who follow the twits.  We heard a key member of the Buckeyes went down with a knee injury.  We didn’t know who, or how serious.  Then we hear it was our new beastly left tackle guard Justin Boren.  Aghast, a knee injury for

Five Things I’m Looking Forward To

Here we are, mid-July. Training camp is still on the horizon, as is the college football season. The Cavs won’t be back in the gym and the Jackets won’t be back on the ice for a couple of months. The Tribe and Clippers eat it. It’s kind of a Dead Period for us. Likewise, I’ve

Mangini + Pete Carroll = ??

So this past Monday I was reading through my Twitter feed and came across this gem from USC Head Football Coach Pete Carroll (@petecarroll): “Just finished talking ball with Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini in my office…” This got me wondering what they could be talking about aside from football, and what things Mangini

Pete Carroll: Grade-A Jerkwad

Wow. As you all know by now, I am a fan of the Maize and Blue, and their football coach has often been criticized for being—how do you say—kind of a jerk. And, as a fan of Michigan, I’m often finding myself a bit, um, annoyed by the P.C.-ness of Senator Tressel. And, there have

Open Thread: Ohio State vs. Troy Trojans

Scott asked me yesterday if I was planning a “What To Watch For” post for the Buckeye game. My response: how about they don’t suck? I’m looking for the Buckeyes to come out with a rather large, Southern California size chip on their shoulder. I’m looking for them to dominate an opponent. Troy is probably

Don’t Like the Play-calling? Too Bad…

After the beating that the Buckeyes took at the hands of the USC Trojans, many fans started looking for answers.  Some blame was put on quarterback Todd Boeckman, some was put on the defense.  But there was a select few that turned to the men on the sidelines, as there was undoubtedly some questionable moves
