About the Authors:
Jim Davidson started shooting with a dual-lens reflex camera in his hometown of Massillon, Ohio, as early as he can remember. He went digital in early 2002 and started shooting the Buckeyes for theOzone.net later that year. You can find more than 20, 000 of his Ohio State sports photos on that site, in an easy-to-use gallery.

John Porentas is the editor and publisher of theOzone.net, which went online in October 1996, providing coverage of Ohio State sports and was one of the first websites to offer school-specific sports content. Since that time John has covered Ohio State football, men's and women's basketball, men's hockey, and baseball, including three national championship football games, one national championship basketball game, and numerous bowl games and NCAA tournament events.
