Every week, Eleven Warriors will dive into the mentions of Ohio State's coaches and players to bring you the #HotTakes and ramblings of Buckeye Nation. This week, fans voiced their appreciation for Dwayne Haskins and then absolutely nothing else.

The Buckeyes looked sloppy and uninspired against Minnesota Saturday afternoon. Both the offensive and defensive lines looked overmatched, the defense continued to give up too many big plays and the run game continued to sputter.

But Dwayne Haskins did what he does best, eclipsing 400 yards passing for the second time in as many weeks to lead Ohio State to a 30-14 win.

Everyone remained calm on Twitter.

@ Urban Meyer

Fire everyone. Bench everyone. Recruit better. 

Reading these tweets is the reason I have to take Dramamine every morning.

In the previous three recruiting cycles, Ohio State has signed one 5-star and seven 4-star linebackers. The problem may be somewhere else.

I wish the team we complained about last week was playing again this week my goodness.

This was my favorite tweet of the week because it made me recreate the scene in Varsity Blues when James Van Der Beek's character took the team out partying the night before the game. Who would be the "Billy Bob" of that group? My vote is former cornerback coach Kerry Coombs, who absolutely comes back to Columbus every Friday to party.

@ Greg Schiano

After surrendering 14 entire points to the Gophers, the Twitter wolves were howling. 

These last two slayed me.

@ Isaiah Prince

Ohio State's right tackle had a tough day against and under-appreciated defensive line, and two years of solid progress/play was thrown right out the window, according to many.

Today I learned that seniors are not allowed to have bad days.

Big Tuna out here showing everyone how to tweet at players, if in fact you decide to tweet at players. (Do not tweet at players). 

@Dwayne Haskins

Despite the sloppiness, Haskins stayed hot and continued his Heisman Trophy push on Saturday.
