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.
For your Earholes...

Nothing but good things continue to come out of Bears camp for Justin Fields.
Well there’s no doubt the best QB on either field today was Justin Fields. Just completed a nearly perfect red zone period. Only incompletion was a drop by Riley Ridley in the back corner of the end zone on a good ball. All of Fields’ talent was on display. #Bears— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) August 12, 2021
Seems good, imo.
Justin Fields goes 3 for 3 with 3 touchdowns and a rushing TD in Red Zone drills. Impressive stuff. #Bears— Zack Pearson (@Zack_Pearson) August 12, 2021

How aerodynamic is your team's logo?
As someone that studies hypersonic aerodynamics, here's my take based on an entirely arbitrary set of criteria
If we can get everyone on Twitter arguing about aero that's a win IMO
