This thread doesn't seem to want to die so I'm putting it out of its misery. Comments closed.
GIF's are cumbersome, they block loading, they block scrolling, even.
FYI - the site update that will be pushed out shortly (along with 12W) includes technical upgrades intended to address this.
Many called in and shared that they supported traditional journalists, but someone mentioned Eleven Warriors as a source for news that not only gets access through Ohio State, but can provide depth traditional papers cannot . All Hooley said was, "I recommend you get a new website."
Hey everyone - I'm revisiting the delicate topic of tweeting at recruits again tomorrow. This time it won't include the word asshole (only because I used up my lifetime quota in the previous piece).
Couple of helpful reminders -
1) 11W's reporters are Tim, Eric and Birm. This thread reminds me that sometimes people don't know what a journalist is. This will shock the vast minority of you, but I am not a reporter. Sometimes it needs to be said.
2) If you tweet at recruits there is a mathematical chance you'll make an unwanted appearance in tomorrow's column. You know what to do. (hint: "scrub your timeline" and "delete your account in shame" aren't as good as "just don't tweet at recruits.")
Im starting to think 12w is as real as our Premium Lounge. We are all getting trolled.
This will be a fun post to look back on later this week. Or maybe next week. Depends on the beautiful nerds.
When is the 12W happening?
It's done. Jason and the tech guys are still testing it to make sure it's as awesome as it's supposed to be.
So, this week. Or next week. Our fate is in the hands of those beautiful, gifted nerds that make the Internet possible for the rest of us.
They're roommates. This has to be the first time that's ever happened.
Thanks for the kind words. FYI Ross and I went to the same Perrier-sipping high school and honed our sports sensitivities on the same playgrounds.
I nuked the Cowherd thread. Plenty of other web sites out there where users can whine about political correctness and ridicule Dominican high school enrollment.
Half a million pageviews yesterday, which is pretty good for July (and with outages) but still less than half of the traffic from Jan 13.
Jason would know records and stuff.
You guys are terrible. And everywhere. But still, terrible.
You need to cite Buddy Martin for nearly all of this article. Almost all of the work here comes from his blog https://buddymartinblog.wordpress.com/2011/11/12/remembering-urban-meyers-dad/
Exactly one part comes from Buddy Martin, which I cited and linked to the book he wrote where it originated.
Every anecdote is embedded and linked accordingly. Thanks for your concern.
Hey, Mods, how about a word to the wise to our serial down voter, since you can see who it is? And "Down Voter" - please be respectful of our guidelines. This is a potentially touchy topic being handled well and with discretion. Down votes are to be reserved for inappropriate behavior or general jackassery. Not because you dislike someone's politics, topic choice, or legitimate view point.
We have visibility to serial downvoters. I've personally never suspended any users for that, but it's been done.
I deleted a very small chunk of this thread that started to veer into 2nd amendment stuff, but aside from that - I commend the commentariat for conducting an informational thread without getting emotional. Now, I don't think we need regular gun discussions here, but this is how it's done. Proud of you all.
This question and its context are fine. Please stay within its confines.
You can't have fewer than zero.
Got my wisdom teeth out: Was at the Cornerstone (RIP) the following night.
Got my tonsils out: Probably should have died. Did not speak for four weeks and didn't fully recover for seven months.
We run like 10 articles a day. How dare you forget one of them from April. Shame.
There is an edition of The Situational specifically about this.
I feel like ABC/ESPN has a political agenda, and that it bleeds into the sports division at times.
I think they're just trying to broaden their audience and stir up debate. They're only beholden to numbers which has contributed to its race to the bottom. Guessing ESPN's only regret with the Jenner story is that it wasn't Tim Tebow.
This will resonate with anyone who has a kid: 12W is full-term. We are so ready to see what this thing looks like and get it out there. We can't wait either. It's happening now! Or maybe tomorrow? Possibly the day after that? Will we have to induce it? Shit. Come on.
This will resonate with anyone who has ever ordered pizza: It's been 31 minutes. Where is it. We're starving. Yeah, you are too and that's mostly our fault for telling you we ordered pizza.
TL;DR 12W is everyone here getting a baby and a pizza.
