Wonderful mash up of “ground zero” (starting point or central point) and “from square one” (at the beginning or starting point).  Both idioms have similar meanings and zero and one are numbers so probably the reasons for the confusion.

    Just heard “we’re back so square zero.” Same mashup I think.
