Is subscribing to worth it?

We’re asked that all of the time and our stock answer is: Of course, otherwise thousands of folks wouldn’t have become — and remained — subscribers.

They tell us they love being the first to know about what’s happening with their Buckeyes.

That they love the broad mix of features they find at Breaking news, sure, but also well-thought-out commentary, historical looks back at Buckeye teams of yore, and long-form features, to say nothing of the award-winning photography you’ll encounter.

Heck, some readers tell us how happy the “Days since Michigan last beat Ohio State” counter makes them.

But here, in our opinion, is the biggest reason of all to subscribe to It’s the online home of football beat-writer extraordinaires Tim May and Bill Rabinowitz.

Rabinowitz has been with The Dispatch since 1999 and has been covering the Ohio State football team since 2011. He’s the author of two books on the Buckeyes and was named the state’s best sportswriter in 2014 by the Ohio Associated Press Media Editors.

May, simply put, is a sportswriting legend. A national presence thanks to his many radio and ESPN appearances, he’s been covering the Buckeyes for nearly 40 years. In 2018, he was named Ohio Sportswriter of the Year by the National Sports Media Association.

No one delivers you deeper access to the football Buckeyes than Rabinowitz and May.

And after taking a look-see, we hope you’ll become a regular visitor.

Or even a subscriber, which you can officially join the ranks of right here.

As we’re fond of saying around here: If it’s happening on the field … in the locker room … on the recruiting trail — let’s be honest; if it’s happening in Scarlet & Gray — it’s happening right here at
