Jason founded the site in late summer of 2006 after his wife grew tired of his constant Buckeye chatter. With a fifth grade command of the English language, it's a minor miracle that people discovered this site, let alone frequent it.

He lives in Chicago, but misses the friendly scarlet and gray-clad people of his native Ohio.

This looks like a temporary glitch from our CDN affecting mobile only. Sorry for the blur, but hoping it's resolved soon.

Honestly, after reading the Weber comments, I got the impression that his transformation needed to take place whether Drayton stayed or not.

Probably a fair reading of the situation and not very uncommon at all at a place like Ohio State where they are coming from being the man to just another blue chip among dozens of others fighting for playing time.

Yep, not having comment voting certainly provides cover for some of these folks, but we'll just ban them if we have to.

Criticizing the team, players, coaches at times is fine and warranted. But if you're just going to post trash complaining about things for the entire session, then find another site.

All of this talk in the comments about the OC is such a tired take.

For starters, Urban Meyer has way more control over the offense and play-calling than most people realize. Always has and always will. All the blame some of you have for Tim and Ed needs redirected. And Meyer offenses have never been units that throw for 400 yards a game.

Then, on the topic of Tom Herman, everyone wants to point to his departure, which in a very, very small way is fair, but you know, the problem with guys like Tom Herman is that a) they don't grow on trees and b) they don't stay in coordinator positions forever.

Hell, most Buckeye fans wanted Herman fired up until midway through the 2014 season, anyway. Surely you remember the calls for his head after VT and some other games that year. And did you know? The Ohio State offense had 74 yards through the air at Penn State in 2014 when Jesus Herman was in the booth helping Meyer call plays.

Obviously all of our goals are still mathematically alive, but is this team actually good enough to get there?

Here's how I see it. There were probably plenty of folks asking the same question following the VT loss in 2014. That question was probably asked after the Bucks beat Penn State in overtime in 2014. Hell, it was probably asked after Ohio State beat Indiana and Minnesota that year and it was certainly asked when J.T. Barrett went down in the Michigan game.

Last year, that question was probably asked plenty of times after the Michigan State game.

One game does not define a season. Two games do not define a season. A season defines a season and there is plenty of football to play this year.
