Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

By Jason Priestas on January 7, 2013 at 9:00a


Today, I'm beyond excited to announce that Vico and Michael Citro of Our Honor Defend have joined the staff at Eleven Warriors.

If you're familiar with their work, you know that we just got better, instantly. This isn't Rutgers and Maryland. This is Notre Dame and Texas.

Vico and Michael will introduce some of you to the wonders of Better Knowing a Buckeye, the richest library of Ohio State football video on the web, and some of the best writing on Ohio State athletics that you will read anywhere.

We're committed to being the internet's best Buckeye sports bar and the addition of Vico and Michael is nothing short of pulling out stools for Norm and Cliff.

Please join us in welcoming them.

Nice additions! Our Honor Defend is a quality website.

This site is becoming like having Netflix and Hulu streaming capabilities, but for free.  I'm like a giddy little kid on Christmas!

Whoa, and the rich get richer haha.
Seriously, that cache of vintage Buckeye footage is absolutely insane.

With Ramzy's bourbon expertise and Vico's sandwich savvy I expect (and hope) the next 11W development to be a food and drink blog. Welcome gents.

Don't forget Elika's contributions. F-O-O-D P-O-R-N.

Welcome aboard. 11W has already answered the question, 'What have you done to beat Mighigan (blogs) today?'

Welcome fellas!

I already thought it was unnecessary to go to any other sites for all things Buckeye related. You've just made it even more unnecessary!

Scotch: It may be too early to drink it, yes; but people it is never to early to think about it.

So is OHD shutting down?

Vico said earlier that he would keep it open for the archives.

Will the video content be available on 11W now?
Great addition! Welcome Gents!

If you've never met me or Vico, then know that I'm Norm and he is Cliff.

Very excited to be a part of the 11W team.

Which one is ND (the one with the annoying national network) and which one is Texas (the one with the annoying network no one cares about or has)?

NC_Buckeye's picture

Just read Vico's farewell (Jason linked below). You guys did great work on OHD. Just wanted to acknowledge your contributions there.
Like everyone else, I'm looking forward to more of your thoughtful and amusing prose here on 11W. Welcome Vico and Michael.

Hope you never end up wearing milkbone underpants!

Ha! By my remark, I meant of course that I am the fat one who drinks a lot of beer and cracks wise, while Vico is the thin one who drinks a lot of beer and drops knowledge on you while he does it.

Vico and Michael just made my work productivity plummet.... I welcome you with open arms and can't wait to read to pieces.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Great additions.  Follow both of these guys on twitter.

Holy shit. You got Vico?! My God.
How soon until the Justice breaks up your little Buckeye monopoly into bite-sized pieces? The competition has zero chance.

rdubs's picture

I was thinking the same thing.  Just be glad that Teddy R. and the TrustBusters aren't around anymore, this site is getting ridiculous.

Very nice!  I enjoy watching their YouTube videos of classic Buckeye triumphs.  Sandwich tips will be nice, too.

The next step toward world domination by 11W.  Look out, Amazon/Google!
Welcome aboard, fellas.

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

LouGroza's picture

Hope there's no battle over who inked the longest contract or scored the most millions. There's room for eveyone. Welcome gents.

rkylet83's picture

Awesome pickup!  Will OHD be merging with Eleven Warriors or will OHD still be operating?

Jason Priestas's picture

OHD will remain as a museum of sorts, but will not be updated. Here's Vico's farewell message.

2013 just keeps looking better and better. Welcome to the best media site for tOSU football!

Wow, welcome guys!  I loved reading BKAB on OHD and am excited to see it live on at 11W!

I believe it's called cornering the market.  Now essentially all of my twitter follows are 11dubsters.

vacuuming sucks

LOL me too. It's a wonderful problem to have however.

Welcome Michael & Vico. Glad to have you!

I wanted to be the Rutgers of 11W Expansion. When do I get my 11W Network money? It's my money and I need it now. :-(

I can't believe I ate the whole thing.

I'm upvoting you while I still can. Welcome sir. Sandwhich for the occasion?

Welcome boys!  OHD and 11W together = Buckeye coverage dominance!

BME_Buckeye's picture

Welcome to the family. Looking forward to your articles and videos. I'm a huge follower of OHD videos on youtube. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.


Estrada's picture

Hot damn that's great news.  I've always loved Vico's take on things; his BKAB and video library are just several inches of icing on a delcious cake.

RBuck's picture

Truly, there is no need to look any further than 11W for your Buckeye news and fix.

Long live the southend.

This is so umm what word am i searching for...

Welcome, Vico and Michael!
I'd congratulate the 11W staff on landing yet another pair of 5-star recruits, except that if you two were really 5-star recruits, you'd probably have ended up at Conquest Chronicles (or some other USC blog), after a late night visit from Lane Kiffin's bagman.
Suffice it to say that the additions of Vico and Michael have valuted 11W to the top of Rivals all-time recruiting rankings!

11W and Urban's football team....the best keep getting better!

Wow!  This is great news.  I used to spend a lot of time on Our Honor Defend.
I love the Drive-Thru's.  Will we by chance be seeing any more of those in the near future?  They are awesome.

Vico's picture

That's the goal. I can't do them every week, but I plan to do more. If I recall correctly, I did one a week for each opponent in the 2009 season. That might be something worth pursuing as much as our schedule will allow. I'll obviously have nothing for Florida A&M.

I can't believe I ate the whole thing.

OSUStu's picture

I will just be glad to see those returning.  Thank you for your efforts.  Its great to be able to relive some of those classic games or to experience some that I never got to see.

This is a great addition. Definitely enjoyed OHD.
11W was already at the top of the heap... this lifts them even further off the ground.

I love the TBKAB series.  Hopefully it continues here at 11W. Welcome guys!

Fear The Elf's picture

Things to know about Vico
- He never says basketball. It's always "shooty hoops"
- His favorite all time Buckeyes are, in order, Donnie Evenge, Brian Baschnagel's Buckstache, and Aaron Craft.
- He starts every game, regardless of sport or opponent, with a healthy "DIE, MICHIGAN, DIE"
- Think about how much you dislike Alabama. Imagine living there.
- Old TV Guide covers = Money
- Seriously, do NOT disrespect the Donnie in his presence.

So are they, umm, over achieving 3*'s or pure 5*'s?

Welcome aboard gents!!! It feels like something epic is brewing for the Buckeyes and us faithful. The football team and 11W are good now but hopefully soon will be quite epic. Make yourselves at home and look forward to your new work here at 11W!!!
OHD will be missed.
