Born and raised in the Buckeye state, Ian has been a Buckeye from birth.
His blogging efforts began in 2009 when he started his own site, Inside The Shoe. Since then, Ian has moved on to Land-Grant Holyland (The Buckeye blog for SB Nation). Ian has spent many years researching the history of the Ohio State football program, and gathers insight from the various strategies of previous coaches and players.
In his spare time, he enjoys rooting for his favorite Ohio teams, which include the Reds, Bengals, Cavs and Jackets (despite the lack of success).
