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.

I know this isn't bullet-proof, but Chrome's emulator for the Samsung S4 shows scrolling works just fine. Again, this is just an emulator and not the real thing and of course it's only Chrome and not the stock Android browser, but it looks good from our side.

Could you please just maybe double-check to confirm it's definitely not working?

Thanks. Search is on the roadmap, but horizontal scrolling of featured articles on Android *should* work. Is it not working for you?

More than anything else, it's a moderation tool. Mods can now spot a problem member, take a quick look at his or her profile and determine if he's a legit jerk or just having a bad night.

Yeah, it's been on the to-do list for 10 months. We're terrible.

It's actually a really quick fix, but the process of testing, pushing to production, etc. is what's going to eat time. Still, should have it knocked out by Sunday evening.

Yes and no, in a sense. Ohio State's trademark team is really aggressive (as most of these groups are, but more so it seems with them) and while our shirts steered clear of any illegal infringement, they could simply yank our credentials at any time, so we have to be careful of what we do, regardless of whether we're in the clear as far as the courts are concerned.

Here's the thing. I may have thought Ohio State was definitely out of it that night, but I certainly thought MSU had a chance to work their way into things. They were up on Oregon in the second half on the road – which in hindsight, is a great showing.

Regardless, it's just dumb to say things like that in week two, regardless of the conference, team or whatever.
