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.

Unfortunately, I have a bit of bad news with this good news: we're losing Aloiya. Her position with Ohio State's Sports Medicine group presented a conflict with her writing for this site and had to make a choice. She was great and we're thankful for her contributions.

In related news: if you or anyone you know is a sports medicine MD and would like to write for Eleven Warriors, hit us up!

We can confirm he was detained and spoken to, but was released and wasn't arrested, charged or ticketed for anything. Closing comments on this so a non-story doesn't turn into a story.

While I think there are things Twitter could do better – discoverability, product integrations, etc. – Facebook at one time dropped below its IPO price as well, and now it's gigantic.

They are legit/licensed. And no, we're not salty about them stealing the Stormtrooper design from us at all.

Thanks. Just looked it up and they debuted on 9/24/12, so we're coming up on three years of helmet stickers.

Wanted to take a second to first thank everyone for discussing this hot-button issue in such a measured way. Really appreciate that.

I received an email from someone saying they were no longer going to read the site because we posted this piece, so I also wanted to state kind of where we stand on this and why we don't see it as a political topic.

Our feeling is that this wasn't a political topic 12 months ago and only recently became one because the two great parties of turds have turned it into one as they're prone to do over every single thing that they can. We're always going to bash the Confederate flag because we're proud sons and daughters of Ohio, a state that contributed more soldiers to the Union Army than any other state, per capita, and the state that produced Sherman, Grant, Sheridan and other great leaders of the Union Army.

The Confederate flag will always be assy to us and we'll take every opportunity to hammer it that we can. Like we've been doing since 2006.

Didn't expect this news to break so soon. Ross has been great for us – he helped take this site to a whole new level – and we wish him well. At the same time, we're excited for what Kyle Jones will bring to the table this season from a scheme point of view.

Man, I've been banging on this drum for a while. We need to bring this back.

Don't disagree with your post, but bold text, much like booze, is best used in moderation. Please don't bold your entire forum topic.

That's the funny thing about designs... it's almost as if they're open to each individual's unique tastes. Crazy.

You can make a tee for us if you take a photo of the clothes you are wearing right now and submit it to this thread for group approval/shaming.

No matter how well intentioned this might be, at its core this creates haves and have nots.

Well, what separates the haves from the have nots, as you put it, is negligible. The experience for Eleven Warriors readers who do not participate in 12W will be no different from Tuesday, when 12th Warrior did not exist. That's always been our goal.
