Ohio State Buckeye Brunch: Cardale Jones and Twitter


This time of the year, news for the current Ohio State Buckeyes is a little slow because of the lack of on-the-field activity. Cardale Jones has made a little news because of his “Twitter War” with Joakim Noah of the Chicago Bulls, but it seems to be just a one-sided argument right now.

That seems like Jones just being a college player defending his hometown, and that basically sums it up, plus it is good for Buckeye fans to see Jones relaxed before the start of another grueling season of collegiate football at the highest level possible.

These are some tweets from Sunday:


This all seems to be a way to have a little fun at Noah’s expense, but if there are those worried about him being not focused, I highly doubt that’s the case as the Buckeyes are looking to be the first OSU football team to ever repeat as national champions.

Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch quoted Joey Bosa and his offseason and working on “technique” no matter where he is:

"“Walking around the streets, I feel like if we see any other D-linemen, they’ll just be flipping their hips on people walking down the sidewalk, or at walls or anything,” Bosa said. “It’s pretty much on your mind 24/7, so you’re always working it.”"

How strange would that be just strolling to a Starbucks or grabbing lunch and Bosa or his teammates would do that … has anyone reading this had that happen to them yet?

More from Ohio State Buckeyes

• It is a shame former Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman tore his ACL in a rookie camp practice with the Denver Broncos. Heuerman was a third-round selection last week.

• In Ohio State basketball news, Todd Jones of the Columbus Dispatch wrote Sunday about the Buckeyes offering transfer Sterling Gibbs:

"“Gibbs, a second-team All-Big East selection last season and ranked as the nation’s top uncommitted transfer by ESPN, also visited Pittsburgh last week before coming to Columbus for a weekend tour of OSU.”"

Gibbs would be a very nice pickup for Thad Matta and Co. as the program will have to make some replacements from last season.

Big Ten Football Headlines

(Penn State Nittany Lions): The York Daily Record (no writer listed) wrote about how the Penn State ’15 schedule is “a burden and a gift.”

"“That means they should start 6-0. Or, at least there is every opportunity to be undefeated heading into their first true road game — a primetime clash with defending national champ Ohio State on Oct. 17.”"

That would be interesting to see an undefeated Penn State team enter their game with the Buckeyes on that October evening. In fact, it would be good for OSU as well, because it would mean a win against an undefeated team would impress the playoff committee.

(Michigan Wolverines): ESPN.com writer Mitch Sherman had this this to say in a predictions article on the Big Ten about the Wolverines:

"“Aside from a tough opener at Utah, the early-season schedule sets up well for coach Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines with home games against the Beavers, UNLV and BYU. League play opens against Maryland and Northwestern.”"

New head coach or not … I’ll have to see how well Michigan plays in those early season games before I can ever say they will be in the Top 25 … bold prediction or not.
