DescriptionJason Priestas was a lonely Ohio State football fan when he moved to Chicago seven years ago with his wife. He was only a six hour drive from Columbus but he felt like he was living on the opposite end of the globe. So in August 2006 he did what many tech-savvy fans do: he started a blog. Five years and several million page views later it has turned into something more than that a continuously updated guide to the id of Buckeye Nation. It was a slow accumulation of momentum says Priestas the site’s founder and editor-in-chief who still works a white-collar job in software development. “We had some early exposure on Deadspin” Priestas says referring in part to a July 2007 post about an eight-year-old football phenom. “But it was really a bunch of little posts adding up.”
