About MotSaG

Men of the Scarlet and Gray is a site dedicated to Ohio sports, particularly those fine teams of The Ohio State University. We don’t claim to be analysts or journalists, nor do we claim to be unbiased. We’re just fans looking for an avenue to express our fan-dom. Maybe we’ll say something wise from time to time, maybe we’ll be entertaining from time to time, but probably not very often. Thanks for stopping by.

Commenting Guidelines

All posts are generally open to free comment, and in fact we encourage everyone to join in the discussion.

We’re always up for a good natured ribbing at the hands of other fans; we like to do that ourselves (by the way, that reminds us: Welcome to you SEC and UM fans, and how did you figure out how to use the Internet to get this far?). But if your comment is vulgar, racist, explicit, abusive, or otherwise ignorant trolling, it will be deleted with extreme prejudice and you’ll be invited to try again. If you’re just going to be dumb or moronic, your comment will be altered to make you look stupid and you will be mocked for your moronity.

About the MotSaG’rs

Some of the bloggers here at Men of the Scarlet and Gray go by alternate ID’s (egos?) at the site for no other reason than sometime anonymity is a good thing. Here’s a little bit about the bloggers at the site:

El Kaiser
Tony is an alum of the Ohio State University’s College of Engineering (2000 BSECE and 2003 MSEE) which means he is a gigantic NERD (can’t spell geek without “EE”!). He has been watching the Bucks since he was a wee lad. He fights crime and pwns n00bs as his alter ego, the Buttonmasher.

The sportsMonkey occasionally leaps from his cage at monkeyPi.net to post here at MotSaG.

Sylvester Yon-Rambo
Jeremiah is a proud member of Buckeye Nation. I did not attend Ohio State except for a short stint at OSU-ATI where I studied Golf Course Design and Management. I count myself as a fan since 1983. My greatest moment as a Buckeye was my first game in the ‘Shoe in 1995 I saw OSU beat Illinois and watched Eddie George run for 314 yards in the single greatest rushing game in OSU history. I cry openly every time I hear TBDBITL and when I am within 100 feet of Ohio Stadium.


Andrew Chirico
Andrew was born and still lives in New Jersey. Andrew will be a freshman at Washington College this upcoming fall. Became an Ohio State fan as a young boy since his mom goes to Ohio for business. Brought home some Ohio State shirts for him and he just fell in love with the program. Joined the Motsag team a little over a year ago. He likes to write about recruiting and about Ohio State athletics (mostly football and basketball). Give him a follow on twitter @bucknut22 or add him on facebook- Andrew Chirico. He enjoys meeting new Buckeye fans!! Go bucks!!

Josh Schott
Josh is a loud and proud Buckeye fan. In just his second season of being a fan of the Buckeyes, Ohio State went 14-0 and shocked the nation by defeating Miami to win the National Title. He absolutely loathes the SEC, almost as much as he hates TTUN. He once hated Urban Meyer with the passion of a thousand suns, but now he does no wrong in his eyes. When he’s not watching Ohio State, he’s watching his beloved Cleveland Indians come up short and crush his heart every season. Also likely to rant about something on Twitter at least once a week during college football season.

Kade Jetland
Once killed a bear with a Chuck Norris poster.

YNBA graduated from Ohio State in 1998 with degrees in Economics & Computer Science.  This means he is the “Old Man in the MotSaG Club.”  He lives out in the Seattle area and appreciates 9AM Big Tweleven football like no other.  He also tortures himself by supporting Liverpool and the Cleveland Indians.
