No grey box?

Are we waiting for more official word than the sources that are already out there before it gets put up or what? Every Buckeye deserves a grey box no matter how many stars he has. Dust it off!

Didn't think that was the new grey box. Same info for sure but doesn't quite pop out like it used to.

11W did away with the gray box, which is super odd to me. Gray boxes have a cult following and so easy to do, but for some reason, 11W staff didn't want to continue the tradition. 

Recruiting updates are just not the same without it. Love the new site format, am extremely disappointed with the lack of the gray box. The one thing I miss from the last website revision. 

Recruit commitments are not distinguished any differently than regular updates/news!

While it didn't make it into the update, something along the lines of a gray box is on our list of things to do, rest assured.

EDIT: Fascinating there are many fans on here who wish to misspell our university's official color...

That one is the university used spelling, and the other is not.

I thought the link was pretty straightforward

OSU07ASU10 is right on the money - the Ohio State "brand standards" call for the American rather than the English spelling of the word. We had an interesting discussion on the subject here a year or two back, as I recall.

The OSU Branding stuff blows my mind. I do a lot of branding work in my internship and there are so many little nuances about OSU branding that are kind of awesome.

Also, for anyone wondering, the site is http://brand.osu.edu/

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

That made my skin crawl.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

This is a black and white issue. Most definitely a gray area.

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.
