Why I love 11W

I've been reading 11w since about september of this year, and I cannot tell you all how much I appreciate this site. The content is unrivaled, from game coverage, previews, recruiting (alex and jeremy are killing it these past few weeks!), and all sorts of other things. But I think the bigges...

Who started seven nation army

I had a debate the other night with one of my friends on which school started the seven nation army chant.  He said PSU, I said OSU.  I was in B deck in the south stands when OSU played the night game vs USC.  The score board operator played it once and the student section got nuts...

"Sinister" Thomas will average 25 in '12-'13

Why not? We all know that Deshaun isn't bashful and he is certainly an incredibly talented scorer. Looking at next year's team (making certain assumptions), #1 is the logical #1 offensive weapon. I also have to say that "Sinister" is the perfect nickname for the wicked south-paw...

Inspiration is Contagious

A charity will get $100K. It should be Coach Matta's. Go vote. A Buckeye victory of any kind of among your life's greatest pleasures. The only way that sweetness could be improved would be to tie it directly into benefitting the greater good. The good people at Infiniti have partn...

There be Server Upgrades

As Thomas Francis Gilroy once said, "With great traffic, comes expensive server upgrades." Or something like that... On Thursday morning, at approximately 5am ET, we will be upgrading our server again. We're trying to position the site to withstand the unbelievable traffic ...

Urban is Not Perfect... My Thoughts

Let me start this off by saying how excited I am about Urban Meyer and the new coaching staff. They should do tremendous things for years to come at Ohio State. However, over the past couple months I've become increasingly annoyed at my Buckeye brethren (don't mistake me for saying I stil...

Coach Jim Tressel,

The post regarding the little four year old Bryson, his mower accident and the surprise hospital visit by Coach Tressel was touching and I believe is indicative of the moral character of this man. A somewhat similar incident occured Dec. 18, 2006. Our family was in Columbus attending the fune...

Playoffs? No. A Tournament of Champions? Yes.

Where's the best place to measure the human factor in any sport? On the field of play, damn it! Let the press publish college football polls. But, why should its opinion determine who is the champion? This is the central issue behind the Mythical National Champion(ship). The fact that opi...

SEC = Mythical

I don't hold Vince Young's 2005 MNC Longhorns in high esteem - because they were handed the crystal, by a USC team high on itself. By the same reasoning, the SEC's ongoing championship streak can be deemed fraudulent. It can be argued the SEC was USC's biggest beneficiary, bet...

The Real Jim Tressel

Great story I came across. Go Bucks. You won't be able to read or hear about this story on ESPN, Sports Illustrated, or the Columbus Dispatch this week. You see there is nothing, as a fallen people, that we like better than a story of a good man who also has fallen - sad isn't it. (Be...

R.I.P. The Golden Age of Ohio State & Twitter

As was first reported on pay sites and the like then later corroborated (ironically through twitter), Urban Meyer's first act beyond forcing the players to meet at 7 AM the morning following a game and long flight back to Columbus was to forbid the Ohio State football players from using the p...

The B1G Decline

Someone (Bucksfan?) posted in a comment thread about how we've all been saying the B1G will be coming back soon ... for the past half decade... and it got me thinking:  It's not "cyclical" this time around and they arent coming back. The decline of B1G football is a per...
