Eleven Warriors is always looking for ways to get better.  Whether you're a Buckeye fan (you probably are) or not (you're always welcome) we are fully committed to providing unique, quality content and a pleasant user experience that has you coming back for more.

In order to do that most effectively we need to know a little more about who our visitors are.  Please take a couple of minutes in the 11W confessional.  Your answers are between you, us and Woody.  No one else.  We promise.  And there's no such thing as TMI here.

A few lucky participants will be chosen at random to win silky smooth gear from the 11W Dry Goods depot. The survey is after the jump. Thanks again for participating!

What if we are forced to assume the Superman pee position in the morning, due to circumstances of nature that are beyond our control?

So where is the Save button for this survey?

If you're trying to submit the survey, I had to tab down to the last box (enter your twitter handle, email, or 11W handle). Under that is the submit button. My browser wouldn't display the whole survey for whatever reason.

Just hit enter once you have typed in your ID.

Guys, you'll have to zoom out in your browser to see the bottom of the survey (email, accountname box & the submit button). On Internet Explorer the zoom button is on the bottom right of the screen (should be above your clock).

Seriously, what are you people, unfrozen cavemen? Or does your work just not allow downloading/install programs. Cuz you need to get your Firefox or Chrome on, and quick.

So sharing a NC with Nebraskie is the equivalent of The Mummy Returns?

I was speaking in terms of the depth of the fall from stardom/playing good football.

Too bad Phil's wife had to go on a bender and kill him. I was always hoping for a Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer movie. If they had a Pat and Stewart Smalley movie, why couldn't they have one for him?

What a buzz kill. Turned 27 now i'm in a larger age bracket. Does that mean the age group for cougars also jumped up for me?

i was thinking this same thought...i didn't like the idea that next year i'd be in a new bracket...hope you're taking it better than i will

LOL.  My form wouldn't take, because I said I gave a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

Then I thought; read the fine printI don't give a damn for East Lansing.  Not one single damn.  And East Lansing is part of the Whole State of Michigan.  So indeed, I don't give a damn for the Whole State of Michigan.

I just knew I was going to have trouble with this questionnaire.

lol. I had a coffee casualty involving my nose reading this. If you win the random 11W dry goods, you'll need to save the shirt for your future tOSU wife.

Seriously, 11W is doing a great job.  The content is fantasitc; the editorial quality of this blog matches the quality of the football team on the field.

More than anything, I congratulate the 11W guys on the creation of a great atmosphere, which isn't always easy to do.  There's no book, no lines of programming code that do that for you.  That comes from judgment and maturity and good taste.  I like 11W 364 days a year.

Bucks's picture

M Man, I admit freely that the only UM fan area I've gone to look at isn't really anything like 11W (umlive), but is there one that you use that isn't such a sloppy mess?

Matt's picture

I used to read MGoBlog regularly, until Brian jumped the shark and became consistently shrill/outraged/out of touch with reality.

M Man's picture

Brian needs a very stern talking-to, about the gulf between what has been reported about OSU allegations, and what is real.  Brian should know about that sort of thing as well or better than anybody.

I am cutting Brian some slack right now, because he's on his honeymoon and has been distracted for the last 4-6 weeks.

M Man's picture

MGoBlog, content-wise, is a fair comparison.  The MGoBoard membership is pretty vast, and consequently pretty uneven.  By contrast, the commenters here at 11W are smaller in number, but I think smarter by comparison.

MVictors is more sedate, more history-oriented. 

As far as a go-to site for you guys to scout the opposition and "know your enemy," there is a blog called "Touch the Banner" that is run by somebody who is in coaching and who is pretty knowledgable.  Not much of a discussion board, and not always up to date on the latest.  (MGoBlog is like a seismograph of Michigan sports in terms of instant news and response.)

Thanks folks above who provided guidance for those less nerdy who could not find the "submit" button on their own. Sadly, my second run at the fill in the box answers was not nearly as funny as my first (that I F5'd away into digital nothingness).

Damnit you all. We create a feedback topic and all you goobers are talking about is banana peels, internet explorer cavemen, other forum sites & the function of "enter."

please keep in mind this is site is run by people who decided that a guy who would go on to write a thousand plus words about air bud, harry potter, and an insane confederacy of dunces diatribe was worthy of having his ridiculous crap read by thousands of people on the internet.

what i'm saying is, don't worry about it; it's encouraged.

Im sad I was not able to participate and post random caveman pictures, bash IE users and just make dumb comments in general.  Ive been covering for a guy on vacation this week and have been more busy than Greg Robinson trying to draw up an effective defense.  Im so ready for Friday its not even funny.  And tSBB, nothing you post surprises me anymore.  You and Ski can keep the pics coming.

I forgot to say something when i "voted" earlier. 11w needs to have the shirts available at a local shop. There are tons of hipsters with print shops in clintonville on high st and Indianola. I hate paying for shipping because I'm a cheap bastard and I'm a weird size. I'm 6'3" and sometimes an XL is good because of length. And sometimes I have to get a fatboy shirt and go with a XXL because the XL just isn't long enough. Irr needs to know what size the small is though so he can hulk out on the shirt. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.
