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.

That's fine. I honestly don't care how anyone else chooses to cheer.

But do you know why fans of other teams say those things? Let me give you a hint: they don't say the same about Northwestern or Purdue. And if you can say that if you were an alum and fan of another B1G school you wouldn't say the same thing about the Buckeyes, well, then, I probably wouldn't believe you.

It's just fandom, nothing personal.

I cheered for Wisconsin in each of their final two games. How could anyone dislike any team in the Big Ten more than an unbeaten Kentucky and Duke? It's impossible.

I also cheer for Big Ten teams in bowl games. Can't help it. I'm a fan of the Rust Belt.

For me, it's up to the parents – I'm not going to tell anyone how to raise their own children. Saying that, we have always been pretty clear that the content can flow into R territory.

Izzo is a great coach, for sure, but I can't help but think the difference come this time of the year goes back to out of conference scheduling philosophy.
