Blogger and Website Chair
The Ohio State University, 2006
Vico is the nom de guerre of an Ohio State blogger and wannabe personality currently living in exile in Alabama. A 2006 graduate of The Ohio State University, he started Our Honor Defend in January 2008 with two colleagues as a creative outlet in the wake of Ohio State's second consecutive BCS title loss and the genesis of the national love affair with Southeastern Conference football. He eventually found his voice covering recruiting for Ohio State as the Buckeyes assembled its now somewhat infamous 2008 recruiting class. With Michael handling responsibilities for shooty hoops and Charles covering women's basketball, Vico's main coverage responsibilities on the blog center largely on football, recruiting for the football team, and anything that falls under the umbrella of "breaking news". When not blogging about the Buckeyes, he can be found on Twitter, complaining about just how screwy Alabama is.

- Favorite All-time Buckeye Moment
- Chris Gamble's pick-six v. Penn Shtate, 2002. I've read that's the loudest moment in Ohio Stadium history, though proper measurement is difficult. It sure as hell sounded like it.
