Ezekiel Elliott and family celebrate his 18th birthday

It hasn't been the greatest day in the world of Ohio State football, but this provides a small reason to celebrate. Ezekiel Elliott's family made the drive from St. Louis to Columbus to wish him a happy 18th birthday. They also made sure to flag down the nearest Ohio State freshman they could find -- happened to be Joey Bosa -- to take this picture to remember the occasion.


We wish Ezekiel Elliott a happy birthday today as he continues his experience as a freshman student and athlete at The Ohio State University.

On a day we want to forget about, some perspective.
In the end, that picture shows all that matters. They look so happy.
Happy Birthday to the young man. My best to his family and him.

I've been excited ever since EZE's recruitment began about his being a Buckeye.  He comes from a strong family, has a great academic background, and has been a model citizen. 
Isn't it interesting that EZE just turned 18?  I'm not sure I ever realized that while EZE was being recruited but am even more interested and confident in his upside and development. 
A belated Happy Birthday to EZE and best wishes for safe travels home for the family.  Go Bucks!

Only 18?  Lol.  It's easy to forget how young these players are
Cheers to the Elliotts.  A great addition the Buckeye family.  The baby sister with her Brutus doll -- too adorable.

EzE will get some touches...may not be a lot, but definitely will get a chance to show a little something.

After everything that happened yesterday, a picture like this can remind us what Buckeye Football is really about.

That is a good family right there. Glad to see them so happy together. Great picture. Bosa is a great photographer!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.
