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.

This was actually a reader suggestion and we thought it was a great idea. It's not truly an ad. We didn't receive payment for running this. It's more a small piece in a series on what gear the players wear, with full disclosure: affiliate links to the merchandise on our side. If we can make a little scratch in the process, that's great, too, because running a business isn't free.

You mean like the mod above threatening to come onto my private property and graffiti my non-existent garage door? I agree.

C'mon. Based on your comments, you're clearly smart enough to know he was asking a rhetorical question and not literally threatening to come spray paint your garage door, right?

It's not that. It's just that we've seen hundreds of threads created by angry fans after losses. It happens. People are people and they want to vent without taking the time to search for or participate in a thread that is already suited for their comment(s). I get it.

Nobody is removing comments (assuming they're civil) or telling people they can't get what they want to get off of their chest. We're just trying to steer this venting into existing channels. That's all.

Thanks again for reporting these, guys. I believe these are legit ads that are being hijacked. So, Nike, Reebok, etc. are fine, but something is hijacking them. We are working with the ad networks to resolve and are killing whenever we have the chance.

Eh. This page has three ad units (and one Dry Goods "house ad"). I challenge you to find  a site our size that has that many (or fewer) ad units on a page.

Just to give you some insight, here are our ad settings. VPAID video ads would earn way more for us than other types, but because they're largely annoying, we've had them disabled.

Comment 02 Sep 2017

Anyone know what the ads are for? This shouldn't be happening, because I hate that stuff, too.

RE: Ad-blockers, we understand the internet is a tire fire in some spots, but we encourage you to whitelist Eleven Warriors if you use one because we don't purposely run those ads and do everything we can to kill them when they appear. And without ads, there's no site, unfortunately.

Another thing that may help is if you kill your browser cache – this is often caused by a rogue cookie.

The pleasure was all ours. Curt was such a quality person.

That is a great idea. I'd love to be able to figure something out that keeps us the safe side of OSU's intellectual property claims. It's not easy, unfortunately.

You made the claim. Tell me how net neutrality would have prevented the iPhone from coming to market. I can't wait to hear this.
