Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State at Michigan

Ryan Day has his first conference loss as Ohio State’s head coach and it’s hard to imagine a loss that was more earned than this one. The Buckeyes played easily their worst game of 2021 in The Game and had their winning streak — and dreams of reaching another College Football Playoff — emphatically destroyed …

Silver Bullets Podcast — Sparty Rewind and TTUN Preview

Welcome to Hate Week. The Ohio State Buckeyes wasted no time putting the Michigan State Spartans away, flexing their offensive muscles and racing out to a 49-0 lead before allowing the visitors to dent the scoreboard. Along the way, Kenneth Walker III all but exited the Heisman Trophy conversation thanks to a strong showing by …

Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State vs. Michigan State

Ohio State entered Saturday against No. 7 Michigan State as the favorites, but few foresaw the absolute beatdown the Buckeyes applied in a 56-7 victory over the Spartans. This was a match-up that always favored Ohio State’s offense against a Spartan defense that entered allowing the most yards per game passing in the country, but …

Silver Bullets Podcast — Purdue Rewind & Sparty Preview

Ohio State didn’t have nearly as much trouble with the Purdue Boilermakers as we expected. Despite some defensive concerns in a game that was basically over at halftime, there wasn’t much to be upset about with a 59-31 win over the 19th-ranked team in the country. Chip Minnich and I broke down the game, which …

Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State vs. Purdue

Ohio State entered Saturday’s game against Purdue as the villain by having the audacity to be the higher ranked team in the top 25. The narrative entering the match-up was about how those plucky (No. 19) Boilermakers were giant killers who had already knocked off two highly ranked opponents on the season (no mention of …

Silver Bullets Podcast — Nebraska Rewind & Purdue Preview

The Ohio State Buckeyes managed to bring home a win from Lincoln, Nebraska, but it was far from easy. The Buckeyes had multiple opportunities to pull away, but the stubborn Cornhuskers hung around all game long. The OSU offense bogged down in the red zone a few more times this week and all but abandoned …

Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State at Nebraska

Ohio State visited Lincoln on Saturday looking to get the offense back on track after some red zone struggles against Penn State. The Huskers have a statistically good defense in the red zone but have struggled at times defending other areas of the field. That’s a longwinded way of saying that Nebraska generally may give …

Silver Bullets Podcast — Penn State Rewind & Husker Preview

No animal is more dangerous than one who is wounded and fighting for survival and so it was for the Penn State Nittany Lions when they arrived at Ohio Stadium on the back of consecutive losses to Iowa and Illinois. The Lions played like cornered beasts and the Buckeyes helped them with lots of pre-snap …

Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State vs. Penn State

Ohio State hosted Penn State in what appeared to be a much less interesting game than originally thought after the Nittany Lions lost to Iowa and Illinois, and had an apparently wounded quarterback in Sean Clifford. But Clifford was feeling much better this week, and played like it, and the visitors raised the level of …

Silver Bullets Podcast — Hoosier Daddy & Penn State Preview

Ohio State went into Bloomington and, after an early trade of touchdowns, had no trouble bossing the Hoosiers around for the rest of the evening. Things might have stayed interesting a while longer if backup quarterback Jack Tuttle hadn’t gotten injured while throwing a first-quarter touchdown pass but probably not a lot longer. The Buckeyes …

Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State at Indiana

Ohio State went to Bloomington on Saturday, trying to avoid one of those dicey games that the Buckeyes have had there in recent years. That was realistically not too much of a concern with an Indiana squad that has been offensively challenged in 2021, but it was a thing that some people talked about in …

Silver Bullets Podcast — Maryland Rewind & Indiana Preview

After our bye week, Chip Minnich and I break down what we saw in Ohio State’s somewhat surprising total annihilation of the Maryland Terrapins in this week’s episode of the Silver Bullets Podcast. We discussed the dominating performance of the offense, the obvious benefits from CJ Stroud’s week off, and a little bit of difficulty …

Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State vs. Maryland

Ohio State hosted Maryland for homecoming and the Terrapins had redemption on their minds after getting blown out at home to derail an undefeated start to the season. The Buckeyes were expecting the Terps’ best shot at the Shoe. I don’t know that they got it, but I’m here to tell you about the things …

Silver Bullets Podcast — Rutgers Rewind & Terps Preview

Well, both Chip Minnich and myself were pleasantly surprised to see the Buckeyes truck the Scarlet Knights in Piscataway on Saturday. Rutgers’ unwillingness to go away last year and the Knights’ second-half performance on the road in Ann Arbor last week seemed to indicate a more difficult road match-up than usual for a Buckeye team …

Grumpy Old Buckeye: Ohio State at Rutgers

The Buckeyes visited Piscataway, NJ on Saturday to take on the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers. Your boy, the Grumpy Old Buckeye, was born not far from there and by age four I had done everything there was to do, so my family packed up and moved to the Buckeye State and I think we’re all …
