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...

Just a thought. The people who run the social media accounts for Ohio State men's basketball have literally zero to do with the on-court product. I absolutely get being frustrated with the season, but these are not the people to take it out on. Try to treat them with kindness.— Adam Jardy (@AdamJardy) February 7, 2024
