PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
For me, it's easily GeneStarwind and Buckeye_in_SEC_country. Gene brings more information than any other non-staff member, and SEC_country brings good info and I almost always agree with his insight.
Well, first, this is probably going to get moved to the "Anything Else" Forum, pretty soon.
Hmm, let's see here. Hail2victors9, M Man, Blueinconsin, Bluebayou, ohiobornmichiganbred, fergodsakes...
My favorite has to be Hodge. He is so often a voice of reason, but also a man's man. He chimes in on just about every topic from Brady Hoke's nose hairs to the finest brews across the world. Hodge is either a walking encyclopedia or the best internet knowledge finder known to man. Actually, I think he's just incredibly smart, sharp, and quick witted. A great representation of OSU. Most of all he's fair to my kind and all others. A toast to you Hodge.
Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
I like Hodge, and Hayze. Definitely, Buck.I.8, because of his cynicism and jokes. OSUFORLIFE is one of my all-time favs though. M Man is a beast though too.
Hodge is the man. In fact, it occurs to me that, while I don't know his feelings on Dox Equis, he may actually be The Most Interesting Man In the World.
I'm a fan of Mr. ANDYVANCE myself. I've always enjoyed your input anytime we've had any back and forth or been involved with the same thread.
To juxtapose two cliches, smoke 'em if you got 'em, and let the good times roll :)
And as it turns out, back and forths like those you mention are a big part of the reason I love this site - thanks for considering me a worthy conversationalist!
This just feels appropriate after that post...
God I love that movie!
I agree with a scUM supporter. EWWW. (J/K) I have always respected the comments from Hodge and Maestro. They never go off the deep end with hatred or vitriol. These two are the best representatives for the Bucks both on this site and I am sure at the games. What is there to gain by being a jerk in your word or your actions? I also have to say that our UM patrons have been a welcome addition to the 11W community. I really love it when we kick meat chicken, but I don't like the verbal or physical abuse.
I agree with Hail, Hodge is one of my favorites.
In general though, I just want to say, I appreciate the overall respect given on the forum. There aren't a lot of boards that would be so kind to others with differing opinions, and the patrons of this site do a good job of that.
WoodyTresselUrban. What he lacks in insider information, he overwhelmingly makes up for with his concise, unbiased comments.
KateUptonsLowerBack really does it for me
(I was just talking about her back. Damn, take a joke) ... Anybody in the top 20 for me. + OSUFORLIFE
I like your sense of humor, and it usually makes me smile when people downvote you because I know they either didn't get it or they're bitter about something you've previously said
Haha Thanks Drum!
Who is Kate Upton?
This is Kate Upton:
"Gentlemen...start your boners!"
You have to "verify" your age for this one:
+1 for the Bachelor Party reference.
What's really amazing to me, is that given all that amazing real estate, you would focus on Kateuptonslowerback, Kateuptonslowerback.
"Political correctness is tyranny with manners." Charlton Heston(1924-2008)
yeah, but I don't think "KateUptonsGloriousBehind" or "KateUptonsBeautifulBreasts" would have gotten approved for user names.
Plus, I think he came up with the name as a creative directional play on words: "KateUptonsLowerBack"...
def. one of my top 5 favorite user names on 11W.
I just figured he used lower back to refer to the stress placed on it by other, more interesting, parts.
I really like her lower back!
Pam and M Man!
Psch, I thought this was going to be about REAL posters like these...
Are you sure those are real?
They're real and they're spectacular.
Knew if I just waited someone would come through with that. And I completely agree.
I'm surprised someone didn't reply to it sooner! It is clearly the default response.
I totally had one of the Kathy Ireland SI swimsuit calendars on the wall of my teenage bedroom... This shot was always my favorite:

Wow, I go away for the afternoon to take my wife to her weekly baby doctor appointment (11 days and counting until we hatch a baby Buckeye!) and this is what happens? You're mentioning me in the same league as Gene, Hodge and other 11w giants? I don't belong in the same pantheon as those guys, but thanks for the love!
Buckeye babies abound...7 or so months til our 2nd. Congrats to you Andy & good luck!! - 11 days could mean any day now..
Awesome! I've wanted to be a daddy for a long time, so I'm pretty stoked... Went in for a non-stress test yesterday, and Gizmo (our pet nickname for my little Princess-in-waiting) is apparently snug as a bug in there... Figure we've got a few more days yet, but yes, I'm on quasi-baby watch at this point :) Wish me luck! (And same to you!)
Congrats to both of you guys!
I have too many favorites to list, but off the top of my head (cuz I know they'll appreciate seeing their names here): Hodge, SquirrelMaster, Btalbert, Buck-I8, Maestro, Baroclinicity, Buckeyebrowny919, Denny, Hoody Wayes
“Any time you give a man something he doesn't earn, you cheapen him. Our kids earn what they get, and that includes respect.” - Woody
lol thanks for the shout out! While i feel like you may be shit-house drunk for me to be included in this but..
Thanks for the shout out, yo.
I value the input of pretty much everybody on here. I think that's what makes this site so great -- is the "football IQ" of everybody seems higher than any other site, and of course the 11W staff is second to none.
Gene is great, Denny is funny, osuforlife made me LOL, GrayBox is up-and-coming, AndyVance is a talented writer...Hodge...I could go on and on.
* edit: I'd like to add D. Anthony...he's been dropping that OSU hoops knowledge on 11W
I like the guy with this icon:
A good sport and always quick with a .GIF.
Haha, Bucksfan...still one of the best threads I've ever seen.
Is that the famous marijuana leaf???
Fat-finger downvote. My bad, mate.
I got it for you.
I'd have to go with Hodge and Andyvance as well. It seems everytime they step into a conversation, it takes an immediate uptick in intelligence. Not that anyone is dumb, lol, but those are 2 smart dudes. Buck-I.8 and Tennbuckeye are solid as well.
Hodge and SquirrelMaster - for their wit among many things
Special shoutout to Hail2Victors9 however, for being a good sport as well as a very knowledgeable and reasonable Michigan fan.
Champions Bleed Scarlet & Gray
Its nice to get noticed for my wit. Most of the time I am just a piece of squirrel meat around here!
You have the wit of a rapist
My gosh - people downvoting a reference from Dumb and Dumber
I like Hodge and CincyOSU. BuckeyeJason, William, and Maestro make the team pic too.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
yes to jason
no to cincy william and brewster
add in kareemabduljacobb
also big fat no to KateUptonsLower Back.
just bustin your balls, brobeans
let me add LLJJGG to my list of faves
...haha it's alright Kate, I knew you were jokin bro ;)
You're scarin' me.
ha! no worries, Earle
was just having a little convo. with myself
Man, why you got to harsh my mellow like that?
Oops meant URBZRENEWAL. We cool.
I was kidding, no worries.
Hodge, hands down!
1st place:) "OSUFORLIFE"
Last place;) everyone else
TennBuckeye19 & NC Buckeye are the goods as well.
Buckeye_in_SEC_county, Urbzrenweal, Buck.I.8, and Hail2Victors9 are some of my favorites.
I really do like mostly everybody on this forum. Which makes it the best Buckeye forum on the net!
everyone but gray box
aww hey man, that wasn't nice.
you were probably joking, right?
GrayBox plays the game with a lot of heart. He reminds me of Gene
yes i was joking. that's not allowed here =].
It helps when you use the sarcastic font!
+1 I can take a joke!
+1 I appreciate it Kate! However, I'm no Gene! He's done way more for way longer!
+1 Everyone but me, there are a LOT of good posters on your list!
Gene, SEC, and Hail2Victors9(I hate to admit it lol)
AlexBoone'sLiver is my fav name!
Denny, Fido, and Hodge for me.
Joshy614? Joshy something...dunno what happened to that guy...he was a real wild card though!
entertaining. Anbody who starts random drunk threads late at night, or threads about Joe Tess's skin makes me laugh
I'm upvoting anyone who says me.
Exactly why I listed you above. Smartass.
Why no love for DREWBUCKEYE? That guy always has the best inside information. Probably actually more information than the staff.
PUFF DADDY is a real underrated gem
So do you have a stalker? Kind of seems like it, lol.
I know man, looks like I've got a stalker...hiding behind downvotes. Come out, come out wherever you are StalkingTroller!
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
i want to thank my family and friends for making this all possible.without you, none of this could ever happen...i also want to thank the guys that detail my truck,newspaper guy(who almost gets it in the yard),bob,bill,hailey,and shaef(do a hell of a job protecting that gate),all the cops who left me off with a warning,helicopter crew that life-flited my boy,the guy that yanked me out of that driveway when i got stuck,whoever found my phone this week(and my boss for pickin it up),my boss for keepin me around,oh whats that..i'm running out of time, i'm COMMERCIAL
+1 You just moved up a little bit on my list!
:( No votes
Maestro gets my vote.
in memory of patrick swayze-rip
Out of posters I haven't seen already named on here, I'd have to say AESCULUS. His The Population Myth blog was one of the most well written and researched things I've seen on any Buckeye/sports site/boards! The conversation it sparked was very good too. His might not post often but when he does his posts are usually insightful and thought provoking or funny.
I missed that post... glad you posted a link. That was awesome! That's the kind of post that keeps me coming back.
Everyone is pretty much awesome though to be honest - everyone has a lane from the insiders to thought provokers, to those offering persepctive behind enemy lines and people who are just flat out hilarious!
It's hard to go for several hours without bouncing back here to see what's going on because of those truths along with the stellar staff.
Definitely an exciting time to be a Buckeye fan.
I just went back and looked at some of your posts. The alternate unis thread is epic! I'm a fan, GT.
Place is chalked full of beasts of the internet.
Yessir! Carlos Hyde-esque up in here.
Gonna have to go with Hodge, Buck I.8, and GSW as my top 3. Hail was a close 4th but you get edged due to your allegience ;)
In all reality theres very few posters here that I don't like
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
I'm cool with everyone but that Squirrel Master is an ass! He won't get off Amir's jock! JEESH, get a room.
Always good for a laugh, Squirrel, lol
I know, right?!? Just joshin
Hodge is a favorite for post quality, endless knowledge, and entertainment. Maestro and AndyVance also deliver in this area.
I'm a big fan of Gene and BuckI.8 for recruiting posts and analysis. GrayBox is a new poster I'm enjoying a lot on recruiting topics, too.
Finally, I respect the reasoned, relatively objective posts from M Man and Hail2Victors9. They reliably further any conversations about TTUN on this site.
+1 Thanks TBDBITL! Some of the best "conversations" I've had on here have been with I.8! S/O to Spooner since I haven't see him mentioned on here yet SpoonerBuck33! Also to the creater of the thread: SCARLET_BUCKEYE!
I just want to love you all! Awkward hugs for everybody!
Denny for the funny. AndyVance for the smarts. Hodge for the insight. BTalbert, Cplunk, and Hail2Victors9 as well...
Too many to list!
Maestro, BucksfanXC, AndyVance, PopeUrban, Brutus, 1MechEng, Avail31678, Poison Nuts, LouGroza.
Had good back and forths with Brewsters even though he's usually wrong in those (I kid, I kid), RDubs, CPlunk too.
Can't forget the mainstays like BTalbert25, William, Denny, Fido.
Earle, AndelHearts, Pam and awwwwwwwwop usually have solid gold.
M Man is my fav from up north.
This list could be dozens long.
This. I really can't have some definitive list of best commenters, because this site is loaded with them. Just to name a few:
Hodge, Brewster, Pam, Denny, Baro, Buck-I.8, Urbzrenewal, NC Buckeye, NW Buckeye, GSW, Btalbert25, Fido, Rdubs, CPlunk, Andy Vance, Maestro, Lou Groza, Poison Nuts, Squirrel Master, TennBuckeye, and even two UM posters in Hail and M Man.
Also man, when the leaderboard was formed I was 2nd, I've plummeted to 17th. I'm like the Sparty of 11W.
"William's gonna William"
I feel you man, I cracked top 10 before taking a brief hiatus from the site during exam week. Ended up not commenting for several weeks and now im down around the 25-30 range.
If you're sparty, I'll be the Minnesota basketball team of 11W
I like that we have reasonable posters from up north as well.
TheMostBrian is one that hasn't been mentioned yet. Very logical.
OSUFORLIFE, tenyearwar, and DrewBuckeye are great for unintentional comedy.
Gsw easy. I Was annoyed by him but starting to love him now graybox. Bucki.8 is in there too .
stark county football
If you're a Taurus, you are my enemy. Outside of that, I like anyone that doesn't take things too serious.
I enjoy every poster on this site except the trolls, even the posts from the enemy. It's always good to see others perspectives and takes on things. Big ups to likes of Gene, Gbox, Vance etc who actually put in a lot of time to this site to bring us the info and stories we all love.
Kareem, shout out to you for usually adding levity to the moment.
gotta be honest...this is a fantastic display of bromance we can all be proud of
There is only one rule on 11W - ELE!
Fido, Hodge, Brewstersmillions, BoFuquel, CincyOSU, William, M Man, BTalbert, and I'm sure a few more who I can't think of currently.
October 20th: National Kenneth Guiton Day
Whoa, thanks for the shout-outs, ladies and gents. Crazy awesome to see people read my incessant ramblings. Seriously, much obliged.
A few of my favorite posters include (those whom generate almost-automatic upvotes): Denny, BTalbert25, Maestro, BrewstersMillions, NW Buckeye, William, Pam, Run_Fido_Run, BucksfanXC, Andy Vance, Poison Nuts, CPlunk, M Man, Hail2Victors9, Urbzrenewal, Buck-I.8, and the ubiquitous GeneStarwind; but that list is far from complete. Frankly, any non-troll who lends their voice to this community is one well worth hearing.
This is why I waste so much time here. This community is fueled by great contributors and I always learn from everyone.
I thought it was because of the Oregon cheerleaders.
gotta love the will ferrel ele snipit. gene hodge and hail are all awesome and have been around for quite a while. i personally like to debate with brewsters the most, also im surprised highwire hasnt got any love yet.awkward hugs for everyone this is my fav site on the internet!
mark may wins douchebag of the year... again
Is it bad when I see your name pop up on a thread that I instantly think of Cricket from It's Always Sunny?
So many favorites and so little time. Way too many people making 11W the best Buckeye site on the net. I may be 700 miles from the 'Shoe, but for an hour or so a night, I'm right there. Thanks to everyone for making it informative, up to the minute, entertaining, debatable, and sometimes absolutely insane. GO BUCKS!!!
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Everyone on here makes this place the special community that it is. Thanks to all the commenters for the laughs and the wtf's.
The moderate people (people who try to see both sides) on this site make it great for me. Maestro stands out to me, maybe it is just his avatar?
Buck-I.8 -not affraid to play devils advocate
Hodge -Dr. Strangelove...
Squirrel -seems fair minded
Gene obviously and Gray has been really solid. In general, it would be easier to list the posters I do not care for.
Thanks 11W community.
So much Buckeye love, such a beautiful thing.
Wow - I haven't been on in like a whole day & just came on & saw this. I'm actually very honored that a few people chose to mention me along with many of the great posters & commenters here. Thanks kindly!
Unfortunately, I can't really name any favorites as I am sure I would leave someone out & while I hate the practice of "everyone gets a trophy & nobody loses" - in this case, everyone gets a trophy. I gotta say & I know this thread is a big love fest already, this is far & away the best site, sports or otherwise, I have ever found or been on. Pretty much all the regulars here (all who've commented on this thread already & many more) are my favorites as the commentary & forums are a big, if not the biggest reason that I'm here so much.
I will throw out there that GSW really goes above & beyond as a contributor. It's pretty selfless to put that much work into a daily forum post so big ups to Gene...Dr. Kenneth Noisewater probably has my favorite username ever & maybe I missed it but I didn't see Doc mentioned & he should be...Thanks to everyone here - Go Bucks!
Not one single mention... looks like I'm gonna have to step it up lol.
Look one comment up - everyone gets a trophy NKOHL - that includes you too my friend! You're special dammit -- don't go forgetting it...
Laughing out loud....
My suggestion would be to change your screenname to something more memorable, NKOHL13. You have too many random letters and numbers.
I hate when auto companies name their cars like this: MX5, MKR, 95, instead of Camaro, Corvette, Mustang.
Just a suggestion. Not like I'm an expert or anything. I didn't even make honorable mention on anybody's list.
Dammit Dude! Everyone gets a damn trophy! Damn.
Yeah I'm not really upset just joking. My screen name is just an abbreviation of my real name and the year I graduate. Not very original but it works.
Nah BUCKEYEDUDE, to be honest I didnt see this post til just now but you are one of my favorites. You, tennbuckeye19, and cajunbuckeye. I enjoy reading posts that dont read like text messages.
Hodge , Earle, Maestro, for the depth & insight. Brewstersmillions, BTalbert25, & SouthBayBuckeye for the fire. Squirrel Master, Unky Buck, & Chief Big Dump for the LOLs
Then there's this guy...
Honorable mention to Hail & M Man for their closet love for OSU
Great community!! Thank you to all!
How Firm Thy Friendship....
My favorite is BuckeyeJason. He doesn't give a rat's ass if he offends you, nor if you disagree with his opinion. He also doesn't drink the OSU Kool-Aid and is a realist throughout the season. Not a bully but its easy to see how some could be offended by what he post at random times, although he's kinda faded away during the off season. The Michigan folk around here are all good posters too.
You tell the SEC when they can learn to read and write, then they can figure out what we're doing. - Gordon Gee
Hodge, Maestro and BTalbert are my favs.
#1) Hodge, as mentioned, by another, is like a walking encyclopedia, and seems eccentric. Wouldn't doubt him if he admitted he was related to Albert Einstein.
#2) Maestro has the best sense of humor. Witty remarks always get a thumbs up from me.
#3) BTalbert is cool. Almost always agree with him.
#4) I do have to admit I like MMan on these boards. He seems to always have a lot of valuable insight and info from behind enemy lines.
edit: also, the new guy, don't know his name, that always is on top of the recruiting news. He gets a shout out. Can't remember his name, damnit....
I've been gone for a while, so I just saw this post, and thanks for the all the mentions. My favorite community members are:
- Hodge/Brewsters/Maestro - they've been steady and insightful posters here as long as I've been here.
- Urbzrenewal - always quick on the info
- Hail - because let's face it, he's an OSU fan
- The rest that I can think of off the top of my head (don't be offended if you're not listed, I may have just forgot) - Pam, Btalbert, Gray Box, Cincy, Gene (of course), Andyvance
Anyone who doesn't kiss the MU fans ***.
Our honor Defend!
If Denard Robinson isn't careful with spooning all that food into his mouth, he's going to end up lookin' like Whoopi Goldberg
He was a special guy...
You can add Scrapple(d) to that list as well
I'd also like to add Goldenbear, as he goes to great length in order to bust my balls on a daily basis. Cheers to you, sir.
They only tease the ones they love
Lot of love in this thread. Nearly brought a tear to my eye.
Hodge. I forgot about the "Bourbon Meyer" recipe. Bacon infused Bourbon=genius.
I always thought AndyVance was staff. So I guess that means he's doing a good job' lol.
This thread is great! I have never seen so many examples of "Bromance" in one place in my entire life! :) Seriously though, I have to reiterate what several people have said. This is the ONLY blog i can tolerate across all of the internets and World Wide Webs put together because the trolling seems to be controlled by all. Everyone seems to have quality posts, and something to contribute to the conversation. Obvioulsy a large reason for this is that the staff makes the environment such that it stays that way. I feel a sense of community here.
Why would I be surprised by this? WE ARE BUCKEYES!
There are many but I'm going to have to go with Brutus. He's always posting exactly what I'm thinking.
Joking aside, while I enjoy a great many posters on this site, Denny is one of my personal favorites. I usually have no idea what he's talking about and since I don't get many of his references, I'm always googling stuff he posts. I've learned a great many things about the Internet from Denny. And i really like taquitos too.
Denny's is a turrible restaurant. Dunno why everybody on here likes it so much.
