Former Heisman-winner Ricky Williams

Carlos Hyde's days at Ohio State are over, but how was this fact such a well-kept secret during his venerable years in Columbus?

#funfact, indeed. *Insert your marijuana joke here*

I don't know about weed jokes, but I do know jokes about German sausages are the wurst.

You're acting like a brat...

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

I never sausage a pun in my life

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

What do sausage jokes have to do with weed jokes, anyway?
I mean, other than both being about fatties, if I may be so blunt.

Fine by me. I always liked Ricky Williams even through all the marijuana problems. He was a lot of fun to watch in college.

Seems like something you'd wait to disclose until after the draft but who am I to judge? Ricky was a helluva RB in college.

Carlos isn't the only one.

Just makes me feel old.  Similar to the way I felt when I first saw Shaq Thomas play basketball.

Dairy-fed intellect and pure, unhinged sass.

Williams is a piece of shit that bailed on his teammates for a fricking joint... I was a lifelong Dolphins fan that quit giving two shits about pro football because of this douchebag...ok...I got that off my chest.  Go Bucks!!!! And Ricky "it's all about ME" Williams can go F$%^ himself...he ruined my Sunday's

Probably the profanity police gave you a downvote... or maybe it was the 420 vigilantes...  they always get me.
Seems harsh to add the downvote salt to your clearly embittered memory wounds.

Seems a little hash to me as well.

Ricky probably wouldn't have turned to weed if Dave Wannstedt didn't run him into the ground with damn near 400 carries two years straight, dude was probably hurting physically and I really don't blame him for walking away from that mess. Oh and without Ricky to disguise his awfulness as a NFL coach the dumbest looking mustache on earth got canned after a 1-8 start to the season.

Football is complicated...

I think he was holding back a bit...

I'm cool with El Guapo's homage, so long as he doesn't get busted for the weed like Ricky did repeatedly.  I'm over the negative press for TOSU, even though this SHOULDN'T have any reflection on us.
I did like Ricky when he actually played hard though!  Dude was a beast!

Late to this one.
I suppose this bit of news had no effect on M...igan fans....
