DALLAS -- They won a state basketball championship together in high school, but Adolphus Washington is just as eager to talk about the junior high city championship game that his team won over Dwayne Stanford's team. Fame is temporary. Bragging rights are forever. "When we went against each other," Washington said, "I always won." Next up? The biggest game of them all. Star teammates...

Alabama, Ohio State begin Sugar Bowl week unlike any other before

NEW ORLEANS -- The strange paradoxical nature of the new college football event to be played here Thursday is exemplified on the signage dotting Canal Street and other pedestrian thoroughfares here this week. One half says: “Playoff Semifinal.” The other half is the Allstate Sugar Bowl logo. So which is it? A playoff game or a bowl game? The Sugar Bowl folks are certainly treating...

Officially Speaking: B1G Turkeys

Coach Meyer had a reason to be frustrated last Saturday- the Buckeye defense had served up a heap of stuffing to Indiana’s run game when the flag fluttered to the ground… Patrick: After watching several replays, this is straight a blown call. Horse collar rules states “inside the shoulder pads” and clearly Washington has a fist full of jersey. The officials conferenced for...

tBBC Awards: Frozen Gopher

Headed down the streetch and within striking distance of a playoff spot, the Buckeyes did themselves some good by defeating the Gophers in one of the coldest games in college football in fifty years. The struggle was adjusting to the cold for some, but the hot nature of the level that some of them play at kept them cozy for the day. Let’s see what the gang has to say about the...

No. 8 Ohio State must avoid trap at Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- With a decisive win over rival Iowa, Minnesota regained a treasured traveling trophy and forged a three-way tie for first place in the Big Ten West Division with three games to go. Coach Jerry Kill could be forgiven, though, for his reluctance to revel the rest of the weekend. "We come off a good win, and then you go home, and you're going to kick back and relax...

What if? Cincinnati fans would be dancing vs OSU

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State defensive tackle Adolphus Washington knows what would happen if an in-state opponent were to beat the Buckeyes for the first time since 1921. Should the Cincinnati Bearcats beat the 22nd-ranked Buckeyes on Saturday, he says there will be a lot of partying in his hometown. A victory would rank among the biggest ever for UC, a proud program two years...

Back from bye week, Buckeyes now focus on Bearcats

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) In his six seasons as the head coach at Florida, Urban Meyer didn't have to wait long to see if he was really welcome in a Sunshine State recruit's home. ''(They were) either a `Nole, `Cane or a Gator,'' he said, referring to the backers of the Florida State Seminoles, Miami Hurricanes or his own Florida Gators. ''You (could) walk in, `How are you today?' and...

Leaving his mark

"Are you having fun?" boomed the voice. "Yes!" was the response, although not as loud as the voice thought for a group of 90 or so kids. Those kids had been out running around for a few hours on a warm Saturday morning, so the voice gave them another opportunity. "Are you having fun?" "Yes!!!" came the response, much more enthusiastically this time. "That's good," said the voice...

Arm Chair Quarterback: Looking Back, Looking Ahead.

The Buckeyes closed out the Big 10 season with a disappointing loss in the B1G Championship game. The 34-24 loss to Sparty ended the winning streak at 24 and denied the Buckeyes the championship that they had to have to play for the crystal football. They were going to lose one under Urban Meyer at some point but what a great ride, the last 24 games have been. Losing to Michigan...
