I don't recall saying that everyone who disagreed with Smith hated him. I'm sure you're also well aware of the hate that some people have for Smith. Just search his name on Twitter if you're unaware.
Yeah, the Gene hate in some quarters puzzles the heck out of me. He's a great dude, his people love working for him, he's respected by his peers and folks at conferences and the NCAA, and probably has the best track record of hires of any OSU AD ever.
The Gator Bowl a couple of years ago is the rare thing you can actually ding him on, but Tressel is responsible for his own exit, not Smith. And Gene took a damn suspension last year going to bat for his guy Urban, which speaks volumes (that and they're both still really close).
Big fan of your work, Joshua! My question: What's the best food on the private jet you take to and from Chicago each weekend?
Yeah, life caught up with Aubrey and she was unable to cover the hockey team for us this year, unfortunately. I'd love to have coverage of the team, but that's a pretty specialized beat.
Now this is the #content we come to Eleven Warriors for.
Thanks, guys. We'll take a look.
Weird. This isn't something we're doing. Maybe clear your browser history and cookies and give it another spin?
Maybe! I know we've been kicking around a McKinley tee and maybe a Glenville tee, too.
See, I guess I think it's just a 7/10 with the phrase only. Add Urban and it's a 10/10, but again, we can't use Urban's likeness. This stuff is tricky!
Thank you. We're learning as we go, but having fun!
This is a fun concept, but tricky to pull off because we definitely wouldn't be able to use Urban's likeness.
But starting it and then stopping it almost implies that there's something behind-the-scenes going on that caused it to vanish.
We ran out of t-shirts!
On a serious note, we wanted to focus on other pieces this year and will still have the game contests, but only for big games. FAU qualified because it was the opener.
Thank you. We've always tried to avoid auto-play video ads with sounds. If these aren't making sound, taking over your screen, popping up or anything else egregious, they're what we'd consider acceptible. In our eyes, these are similar to animation in ads because there's no sound.
I realize everyone may not love them, but I like to think that we're so much lighter on the ad front than similar sites.
If you can believe it, we actually have two shows on 97.1 the Fan here in Columbus! The Eleven Warriors Radio Hour airs every Wednesday from 8 to 9 p.m. and then Eleven Warriors Sunday airs every, uh, Sunday, from 9 to 11 a.m.
This is actually a pretty good idea. We'll look into it.
We are sunsetting this one, unfortunately, given Day's focus on the passing game.
As others have pointed out, we're indie in the sense that we're not backed by a large company, even though we're structured as an LLC. Basically, we can say or do anything we want and only have ourselves (and readers, obviously) to answer to.
Bucknuts = 247Sports/CBS
Buckeye Grove = Yahoo!
Dispatch = GateHouse Media
Land Grant Holy Land = SB Nation (Vox)
Lettermen Row = Wolfe family (former owners of WBNS TV, 97.1 FM, the Dispatch, etc.) backing
Buckeye Sports Bulletin = Indie again after being Scout affiliated for a long time
The Ozone = Indie
I've always respected the indie ethos and spirit because it's not easy to do something like this. We've been approached several times through the years but have always wanted to do it our way, so we've never taken funding from anyone. That has its challenges, but it's also so much more rewarding when you can pull it off.
It's not at all. I honestly think it's super interesting. Without a document dump, we never get a window into things like this.
That's correct. It's a bug, but a weird one that rarely occurs and only happens when the mod moves a post to the correct forum. We will probably fix it at some point, but it's not urgent. In the meantime, blame your fellow posters for picking the wrong forum haha.
What link? The banner with the image at the top of the thread?
Buddy, do you think we are making this up as we go?
