Joey Bosa, a future top five NFL pick, went off on Penn State last night. The sophomore defensive end logged six tackles and 2.5 sacks on the night, and some apparently took issue with Bosa playing through the whistle.
Apparently I'm a dirty player and a douche— Joey Bosa (@jbbigbear) October 26, 2014
But because Bosa isn't a dirty player (or a douche) he reached out to Christian Hackenberg to apologize for nearly decapitating him:
@chackenberg1 good game tonight man didn't find ya after the game— Joey Bosa (@jbbigbear) October 26, 2014
@chackenberg1 sorry for ripping your helmet off haha same to you brotha— Joey Bosa (@jbbigbear) October 26, 2014
Sure, it's easier to be gracious in victory (especially when you bulldozed a running back into his quarterback for the game-winning sack), but it's still a quality move by Bosa nonetheless.
Ohio State is 6-1, and faces the 4-4 Illinois Fighting Illini on Saturday at 8 p.m. (ABC).
