With two house-themed pint glasses hanging in the balance, it was only right.

Eleven Warriors set numerous records over the years, but this could be a first. Today, an 11Wer lost his black stripe.

Meechy77, known in real life as freshman offensive lineman Demetrius Knox, is now an "official" member of Ohio State's football team, according to Urban Meyer.

Congratulations are in order for Meechy, who walked a long road to wind up in Columbus.

Let's put him on the board!
