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.

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.

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.

Locking this thread. How are we so divided as a nation? I promise you we all agree on 90% of things that matter, but two parties have done a masterful job of pitting us into separate tribes.

We received this email at 4:45 p.m.

I'm done with this site. Bunch of liberal pussy fucks from Ohio that can't stop being little bitches. So glad I'm out of your pathetic left wing state. I hope I never see and of you bitches in Florida. Fuck your site and Go Buckeyes bitches.

And this one at 4:46 p.m.

I would simply like to state my concern that this website has once again chosen to ignore its political commenting policy with regards to Kaepernick. Some of the things stated about him in the thread are clearly racist and political in nature, and the fact that 11w leaves these up where it wouldn't leave up political takes from the opposite side of the aisle is hypocritical.

2019. Let's all get mad!
