Was looking up David Bell on twitter when I came across Jordan's twitter page. Saw this on it:

Former Recruiting Analyst for @11W.

Did I miss an announcement?

Not sure. I would kind of like to know myself.

Seems like something went on...I would imagine someone who has volunteered for this site since I have been a member, would at least take time to explain or drop a tweet that he was leaving the site. But instead, he had time to update his twitter bio to add  "former 11w recruiting analyst," and change his (11w) profile picture to an egg. Who knows, he could have been hacked or this could be the real thing

Does anyone know the hierarchy here at 11w? Who owns it? I've been visiting here for a while but I don't know much about it's staff or history. The only thing I can figure out is that Birm is an elite writer and a very informative follow on Twitter. Also Ramzy writes some awesome articles football and non football related. He reminds me of the Dos Equis guy, The Most Interesting Man In The World. Stay thirsty fellow Eleven Warriors

There are multiple principles/owners - Jason and I are two of them.

re: Jordan - I learned about it here. He's a recruiting guy = I defer to Birm since he's the recruiting overlord, which speaks to the 11W hierarchy question in this thread: Decentralized, autonomous, pantsless and generally unkempt.

This is the part of 'being a family' I deeply appreciate - we may not ever get to know the truth, but we all mourn when there is separation from one of our kind.

Now, if we find out later that he was the real Uncle9er or we find out he was really a skunkweasel in disguise, then we can reassess, but I'd like to believe that JW is still a good Buckeye.

Sad to see Jordan go.  From a staff's perspective, I can't decide whether it would be annoying or exciting to log onto the site first thing in the morning and be confronted by people asking about an employee's status before even having a chance to tell the story.

Jordan was a great part of our recruiting team and we'll definitely miss him. He wants to focus on school from what I understand and it's a shame for us because he was really a valuable part of the squad.

Birm -

With the unexpected opening of an 11W roster spot, are there any 4* or 5* writing/reporting recruits that Jason may be targeting to fill Jordan's shoes?

Can we expect a commitment from one of these prospects before the start of the OSU Football season, or will Jason bank the spot for next years class?

What is Jason looking for in the next recruit - (SEC typing) speed or (B1G article) size?

Thanks in advance!

Wonder if this puts the staff in a really hard place after hiring Pat to bring the  basketball coverage up to  par and Birm residing in Arizona. I would think the main content focus would  be football and recruiting with Basketball coming in 3rd? Oh well Im  sure it will get sorted out in a top notch and timely manner.

Touche, but here's an example. Appositive. DJ likely thinks that's the opposite of a negative, whereas I'd imagine you might have some other definition of it.

Nope I'm dyslexic.  I really think its funny when people have to talk about grammar or spelling on the internet.  Especially a football message board.  As someone who is dyslexic and quite successful in life I always though people who have to correct grammar and spelling live sad lives.  Like do they think the fact they took the time out of there day to correct my grammar or spelling its going to change anything.  Do they think I'm on a OSU English grammar forum?  I'm sure there's things he sucks at in life.  Like maybe he is bad in the sack.  I bet he would love to be reminded about that everyday.  Heck I even spent two minutes and noticed grammar mistakes in his own profile.  Nobody is perfect we all our good and bad at certain things.  Is your life really that boring and petty that you take time to harp about grammar and spelling on a football forum?
