I was born and raised in central Ohio and attended The Ohio State University. Here at Eleven Warriors, I write Big Ten recaps and whatever topics strike my fancy. I have been around the site since 2008, and writing with such great people since February 2013 has been immensely satisfying. Now for a musical interlude.

*Brady Bunch theme*
Here's the story of a boy named Jervey,
Who was brought up in lovely Columbus town,
He had sports takes, the hottest you'll find anywhere,
On jokers, tools, and clowns.

Here's the story of Eleven Warriors,
It was looking for a scribe to write some stuff,
It was awesome, but wanted extra content,
From someone who'd take no guff.

Til one day when the blowhard met this website,
And they knew that it was much more than a hunch,
That the two would somehow come together,
That's how Nicholas joined the Dubber Bunch. The Dubber Bunch,
The Dubber Bunch. That's the way we all became the Dubber Bunch.

No worries, I have multiple cats (two), and both were adopted. Call me the Lord of Slightly Fewer Whiskers.

OSU07, Oyster, can we all just get along and agree that I am the idiot here? I don't blame anyone for assuming that DJ wrote this, since he almost always does.

I'm about to update the Skull Session, but here's what I did wrong: I misread this press release, which states that there are 18 retired numbers across OSU's 36 varsity sports. I also missed the following sentence about jerseys no longer being taken out of circulation ("...but jersey numbers will no longer be taken out of circulation. The school's 18 previously retired jersey numbers will remain retired, though, outside of a decision based upon protocols being developed now.")

It would be great if there were a way to track that, but there's not. In baseball, sabermetricians can track umpires' strike zones because there are over 700,000 in-game pitches thrown in any given year. In football, you can't do nearly as much.

For one thing, the game is at home. That makes a big difference: Ohio State was projected to have a 48% chance of winning at Michigan State yesterday, and it currently has a 47% chance of beating Wisconsin at home. Granted, Frank Kaminsky is a nightmare matchup, but it's a plausible upset.
