Google Plus Interruption

Quick programming note…

Google has (temporarily, we hope) suspended our G+ account due to “violations of the Google Plus names policy.” When we set MotSaG up, we used our standard Google account that has been in place since 2006.

Until Google rolls out their G+ business pages, this is technically a violation (since “first name: MEN; last name: OFTHESCARLETANDGRAY” is not a proper name). Go figure.

We’ll be trying to work this out and will keep you posted on progress. In the meantime you can always catch us on Facebook if you prefer.

Stay tuned for future updates.


  1. HAHAHAHAHAHA my hatred of Google+ just got its first valid reason. Thank You

  2. Damn that sucks.

  3. @SYR – MotSaG had built up quite the following on G+, not just those that followed us and saw our updates on their streams, but even from those that weren’t G+ users but bookmarked and checked our page there.

    Also, we had quite a few regular followers that preferred to engage and participate there, with comments, discussions, +1s, etc. that were parallel (but separate) from the comments sections here on the main site.

    Also also, the overall Buckeye Nation presence on G+ was exploding… all our co-blogs (11W, ATO, BBC, etc.) have thousands of people that get their Buckeye sports blogging content from there. Looks like we’re the first… but probably not the last.

    Google has to get its business pages up soon. How myopic of them.
