And the roommate who got back first from spring break stole everything.

Monday

Wednesday

Spring "arrived."

An Oklahoma State student mistakenly claimed to attend OSU.

A survey found 100% of campus Cavs fans predicted a win against Miami, but also knew they would lose.

Aaron Carter was disappointed to find out he wasn't the hottest Aaron C. currently on campus following his concert.

And the University of Wisconsin thought it would be a good idea to reply to a parody Ohio State twitter account for some reason.

 

 

Thursday

Mirror Lake temporarily became "Amir Lake" for March Madness.

Even the professor skipped class.

Big Ten began talks to get rid of Wisconsin.

Ohio State unveiled special $45,000 March Madness jerseys.

Aaron Craft stole all of Iona's halftime warm-up balls.

And following Ohio State's victory, Momo Jones still had no idea who Aaron Craft was.

Saturday

And the NCAA moved Ohio State to the East region so it's fair.
