After Ohio State experienced a Fiesta Bowl thrashing, you may have been trying to avoiding Twitter for the past week. But thankfully for you, I've collected all of the week's best tweets from across campus.
Aiming to claim back-to-back Fiesta Bowl crowns, and two in one year, the Ohio State Buckeyes came into this one with their eyes set on Tampa after a New Year's Eve clash with the Clemson Tigers.

Buckeye Nation was in full force all day long leading up to a 7 p.m. kickoff from the University of Phoenix Stadium.

But as the clock struck midnight, and we turned the calendar into 2017, Times Square wasn't the only place where the ball was being dropped.

And as the sun set on this forgettable bowl loss, the second of the Meyer era, emotions ran high amongst those in the Twittersphere.
It's one thing to lose...but to get shutout? Smh— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) January 1, 2017
I could be the OC on this team and we would be straight I promise— corey brown (@phillybrown10) January 1, 2017
No, seriously. Cardale and Darron were not happy. Just check their timelines.
Come here, let me talk to you kicker boy, tf you doing— Cardale Jones (@Cardale7_) January 1, 2017
Play calling was such trash tonight...— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) January 1, 2017
Anyone have the number to that sideline phone?— Cardale Jones (@Cardale7_) January 1, 2017
More pissed that's how we sent Coach Fick out...— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) January 1, 2017
They need to go in the locker room, turn on the PS4, pop in Madden 17 & hit every play since this play calling has went MIA!!— Cardale Jones (@Cardale7_) January 1, 2017
No Sh*t https://t.co/af3EsFEhPJ— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) January 2, 2017
Stop all these "JT trash" tweets, when I started last season & we struggled, it was "Cardale trash we want JT"it ain't the QB— Cardale Jones (@Cardale7_) January 1, 2017
With the 2016 season coming to an end, it means we say farewell to members of the Buckeye Football squad.
Thank you to THE Ohio State University for an amazing 5 years.......... I wouldn't trade it for the world, I loved every second of it!— Craig Fada (@cfada29) January 1, 2017

We also say (early) goodbyes to another handful of future Sunday superstars.
Per his Instagram, Ohio State CB Gareon Conley is entering the NFL Draft. https://t.co/KRdFNbPIVs— Tim Shoemaker (@TimShoemaker) January 3, 2017

OSU OWNS NFL
Week 17 in the National Football League means end of the year awards — and some of your former Buckeyes made headlines with their first stint in the show.
Thanks bruh https://t.co/4bK9EwtrYG— Ezekiel Elliott (@EzekielElliott) January 2, 2017
Also, in case you forgot, you REALLY can't guard Mike.
Michael Thomas has now set the Saints single-season rookie TD record with his 9th of the year. pic.twitter.com/QomtU1ZitA— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) January 1, 2017
.@Cantguardmike finishes with 92 rec, 1135 yards and 9 TDs. For a rookie, That's the 2nd best season in terms of receptions in NFL history.— Lyons Yellin WWL-TV (@LyonsYellin) January 2, 2017
If your last name is Bosa, I guess you're decent at pass rushing or something.
Joey Bosa had a sack and 5 hurries today. He has more pressures than any defender in the last 11 years through their first 12 games. pic.twitter.com/CcFLR7MVOS— Nathan Jahnke (@PFF_NateJahnke) January 2, 2017
Sometimes I wonder what the other players are doing when Joey bosa is taking on 3 players pic.twitter.com/uCWhuEcQDC— BoltMan (@Fr33Sdc) January 3, 2017
WOW, what an impact these Buckeyes have made already in their rookie years!!! pic.twitter.com/46PQElH6k6— Urban Meyer (@OSUCoachMeyer) January 6, 2017
Tweet of the Week
Just started watching tonight's episode of @BachelorABC - favorite girls so far are Rachel, Vanessa, Raven, and Danielle L.— Liam McCullough (@LiamMcCullough2) January 3, 2017
Big fan of your choices here, Liam. Vanessa and Raven are also two of my favorites, but I see Corrine causing trouble for weeks to come. Stay tuned!
