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
@OSUCoachMeyer time to fire your buddies on the defensive side. Results speak for themselves. Unacceptable— Chris Mileusnich (@ChrisMileusnich) October 13, 2018
@OSUCoachMeyer you want to hire a linebackers coach? Or maybe recruit better?— DWHITE (@WhiteAndrewJ) October 13, 2018
Sources tell me this is @OSUCoachMeyer last season!— Matt (@MattBigDog23) October 13, 2018
SIT PRYOR DOWN!! @OSUCoachMeyer— Ole Timbo (@jewfro84) October 13, 2018
Fire everyone. Bench everyone. Recruit better.
Reading these tweets is the reason I have to take Dramamine every morning.
Did the defense practice Friday? They can't stop the Gophers?— John (@jonnyray45) October 13, 2018
Hey @OSUCoachMeyer lets recruit some LBs— Never Lie (@Truth_Hurts1030) October 13, 2018
In the previous three recruiting cycles, Ohio State has signed one 5-star and seven 4-star linebackers. The problem may be somewhere else.
@OSUCoachMeyer this is a preparation issue. Too much talent to look this bad. Two first halves in a row that we look average. Fix it— michael hunter (@catfishhunter67) October 13, 2018
Zero chance to beat UM with these guys— The Real JTT (@jrodtop) October 13, 2018
Hey @OSUCoachMeyer @OSUCoachSchiano Im 24 with eligibility. Im 510, 70 lbs overweight, out of shape, and have a bad ankle. Im going to enroll in law school real quick and be a starting linebacker. Not sure Id be much worse. #GoBucks— AJ Thomas (@AJ__Thomas) October 13, 2018
I wish the team that played Indiana was playing Minnesota today my goodness— Dave Frangis (@Dave56340190) October 13, 2018
I wish the team we complained about last week was playing again this week my goodness.
@OSUCoachMeyer number 59 couldn't block granny Walton his first step should be to the outside and then block the guy to the inside start looking for a new offensive lineman— Bill lee (@William15419480) October 13, 2018
@OSUCoachMeyer please start showing emotion with the game. You affect the players by your attitude— email@example.com (@jester0618) October 13, 2018
@OSUCoachMeyer did your team have a huge party last night or what?— Schaef291234 (@SchiggityWilson) October 13, 2018
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.
Pack your bags and GTFO @OSUCoachSchiano— Collin Smith (@collinmsmith) October 13, 2018
Pathetic. @OSUCoachSchiano youre not earning your paycheck at all.— Chris Laylin (@ChrisLaylin) October 13, 2018
@OSUCoachSchiano What is wrong with our defense this year? Run defense is awful.— Ron Barga II (@RBargaII) October 13, 2018
Bye @OSUCoachSchiano— CJ Groh (@groh_cj32) October 13, 2018
@OSUCoachSchiano your defense is an absolute embarrassment— Jordan Natour (@Buckeyes_Pride5) October 13, 2018
@OSUCoachSchiano you should probably change the defensive scheme to zone. Your defensive backs are garbage. Your side of the ball is single-handedly going to ruin national championship hopes.— Kevin Patterson (@nutsforbuckeyes) October 13, 2018
Ohio State D should wear yellow. They're just BUTTER!— C A Bissonette (@a_bissonette) October 13, 2018
So is this defense right now Swiss cheese or Charmin soft?— Matt (@LLMax00) October 13, 2018
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.
@ThePrince_59 bro, if you are that lost in a game, let someone else play. That was emarassing today. You are a senior! Act like it!— Dave Skiver (@DaveSkiver) October 13, 2018
Today I learned that seniors are not allowed to have bad days.
@ThePrince_59 is absolute— Logan Eldridge (@LoganEldridge33) October 13, 2018
@ThePrince_59 bruh you real life suck go sit on the bench and ask Josh to come in for you, you so ass— DWHITE (@WhiteAndrewJ) October 13, 2018
Hey @ThePrince_59 how about you block someone today!! I look up and see someone in the backfield and it just so happens to be the guy you are blocking every single time! You gotta be better man— Kyle Rollins (@KyleRollins2) October 13, 2018
@ThePrince_59 you sorry ass hell pathetic looks like next man up to take your spot smfh no nfl future for you block— Chad (@chad_pilot) October 13, 2018
@ThePrince_59 you are by far the worst tackle to ever come through Ohio State. Period.— DJ Williamson (@djwilliamson42) October 13, 2018
Come TF ON @ThePrince_59 you gotta get back to basics, youre not bending your knees. Youre a senior captain STEP TF UP!!!!— De'Andre Barnes (@dbarnes614) October 13, 2018
@ThePrince_59 you should pay OSU back for the scholarship you stole.— Cash62 (@carson_cornell) October 13, 2018
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).
Despite the sloppiness, Haskins stayed hot and continued his Heisman Trophy push on Saturday.
@dh_simba7 winning heisman best QB— (@MarcusMcCowin) October 13, 2018
@dh_simba7 is carrying the entire team with KJ.— Collin Smith (@collinmsmith) October 13, 2018
I mean, Im glad @dh_simba7 is making big throws, but Im more proud listening to him in these interviews. Praise to the coaches, the o-line, the receivers, nothing about how great he is. Most you get is that he is confident. Happy to cheer for DH.— Pete Shearer (@PeteOnSoftware) October 13, 2018
