Look, we get it. Your days are busy and you don’t have time to read all of the stories and tweets from the three dozen websites dedicated to covering Ohio State athletics, or the 237 Buckeye beat writers churning out hot takes and #content on a daily basis. But that’s ok, that’s what your friends at Land-Grant Holy Land are here for.
Monday through Friday, we’ll be collecting all of the articles, tweets, features, interviews, videos, podcasts, memes, photos, and whatever else we stumble across on the interwebz and putting them in our daily “Why is this News?” article. That way, you’ll have a one-stop-shop for all of the most important Buckeye news, jokes, and analysis.
Congrats to all of this weekend’s grads!
Coming up this weekend: the conferral of 12,000+ @OhioState degrees at 2 in-person #commencement ceremonies in Ohio Stadium. See details, including livestream options. #OSUGrad https://t.co/bAS9UuO99d— Ohio State News (@OhioStateNews) May 6, 2021
