"Moooother and boy."Should be the best/worst SEO day in Eleven Warriors history. 

Salutations, Buckeye Nation. Long time, no podcast, no? We right the proverbial ship the only way we know how: By diving into what's transpired in the last several months across the Ohio State landscape with some of the best folks possible to do just that.

Black Heart Gold Pants and Slow States' Patrick Vint gets on the horn to provide a conference familiar but unaffiliated dose on the reality of the situation Ohio State finds them in. Is this a witch hunt or merely a case of just deserves? Has the worst yet to come? And naturally, what the 2011 football season has in store for Big Ten football.

Finally, it's a real honor to have on the Dispatch's Ken Gordon. Ken's in the home stretch of calling it a career as an Ohio State beat writer, but clearly the best is yet to come as he transitions into blowing us away as a feature writer. Heck, Dr Saturday himself Matt Hinton once so succinctly put it, "I read a lot of beat writers. Ken Gordon is one of the best." Gordon joins us to dish on how the last 4-8 months rank relative to the rest of his career, ESPN's journalistic (*gasp*, but yes #FREEBRUCE) responsibilities to keep the flow of information responsible, and finally, where he sees the situation going from here.

Life's good, but your life would be even better with some Eleven Dubcast in your ears. Right click, save as-> here to download the goods.

Ken Gordon:

"...it's so much more shades of grey..." (referring to how national media has been reporting)

"it's kinda like the difference between a 2 year old with crayons, and Shakespeare writing prose"

That was directed squarely at you Brooks,  Dohrmann & co.

yeah man, he was getting hot about that. the death of nuance in sports reporting and sports fandom is something that really bothers me, and i completely agree with what gordon was saying there

I think the rise of the internet and the pressure to deliver instant stories has completely lead to the downfall/decline in sports reporting. 

That, and any hack/Brooks can cut, paste and post...which makes the job you guys do here at 11W all the more commendable.  Bravo fellas...
