Echoing the appreciation and plaudits above, I must say I'm finding this fascinating. I had barely heard of F/+ before these features, and I really appreciate not only the raw numbers but the time you've invested to analyze the results. I now look forward to this every week. Thanks!

Confirmed per OSU's football web page:

Who among the remaining members of Zone 6 do you anticipate will benefit most from the emergence of Noah Brown as presumptive #1 receiver option, as he will likely be matched up against our remaining opponents' top cover corners or double-teamed the rest of the year? And, could there also be some production benefit to the H-back position as well?

I tend to agree; with GameDay, ESPN can get away with an early show for a 3:30 or even night kickoff because, well, GameDay - it attracts its own fans and sign-waving loonies, so a big crowd is assured no matter what time the game itself starts. With BTN's startup venture having almost zero initial name recognition, you'd have to think they don't want to risk a mostly empty backdrop devoid of fans for 90 minutes...right?

I confess, I did the exact same thing. I had an event to attend that evening and turned off the game to go take a shower and get ready. I came back out to the living room and turned on the TV to get a quick update on the next game, and was literally stopped in my tracks when I saw the OSU game still on, LIVE with Purdue trying to even the score in OT. I have not forgiven myself for that but can only, as you have done, vow going forward to not let it happen again.

RAMZY: Eleven Warriors was the informed response to a media that was trying its hardest to create more interest and programming for the Tressel/Ohio State scandal narrative. 

Like others, this is when I found 11w - while seeking that "informed response" entirely absent elsewhere. I came for the balanced analysis, stayed for the thoughtful writing and coverage I couldn't find anywhere else. Thanks to everyone who played a role in the evolution of this site into what it is today - and I look forward to what's ahead as well.
