I am a frequent visitor, though I rarely post anything (feeling inadequate in the face of such erudition as permeates this site).  I thought I would take this opportunity to thank everyone at 11W for their hard work and dedication in bringing me, and the myriad of other Buckeye fans, their unique brand of incisive reporting, breaking news, rational analysis, and strategic placement of troll faces.  I think the thing I most appreciate is the sense of humor which informs all of your endeavors, reminding us that, though it may seem like life or death more often than is logical or healthy, what we are obsessing over is a game, something which should bring us joy and camaraderie.  I raise a cup of badass wassail to all of you who have made me laugh and think and cheer through this most difficult of years, and I look forward to a new year, as Buckeye Nation rises from the ashes of unjust immolation and takes its rightful place at the head of the B1G table.  Merry Christmas and Go Bucks!!!!

Thank YOU Bucknut in the South. We'd love to hear you comment more but it's the readers that really make this site what it is. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

I'm spending Christmas morning with Wolverine fan in-laws in my house.  One of my in-laws even sang "Hail to the Victors"!  In my house!  Can you believe that shit?!?  (It felt like Desmond Howard at the Shoe all over again.)  So, yeah, it's nice to have 11W as a refuge. 

Merry Christmas to all Buckeye fans everywhere!

Real fans stay for Carmen.

First time post, & I too want to thank 11W for being a site of HONESTY & INTEGRITY.  Bucknut-in-the-South, could not have said it better myself.

Western North Carolina, very small town, very beautiful place.

I totally agree. I am a big OSU multi sports fan. (Lacrosse anyone?) Stumbled upon this site, and quickly became addicted. Thoroughly enjoy the well written articles that are homer yet not slavishly homer foolish, humor, and reader contributions where the idiot quotient is refreshingly low.  Keep 'em flying eleven warriors! It is a nice change from the mainly SEC and VA Tech chest thumping going on around in this neck of the woods. Gah.
