This Week in Twitter is our weekly look at some of the week's best and most entertaining tweets from current and former Ohio State players and other Ohio State accounts.

With the start of Ohio State's football season set for next Thursday night in Minneapolis, Ohio State announced Kamryn Babb, Chris Olave, Haskell Garrett, Teradja Mitchell and Thayer Munford as 2021 captains back on Friday, August 20.

Earlier this week, OSU shared a few of the phone calls to parents letting them know the good news. Harrison's parents get the call here:

And of course moms don't stop momming. She's like, "that's a big responsibility, son!" Damn right it is. Gotta believe Harrison is up to the task after a monster offseason. 

Here's #TEERAW's dad getting the call. Man this one almost had me choked up. 

Seriously, watch that one on a loop for about five minutes. Think about what these kids and their families pour into the program. You can see it hit not just Teradja and his pops but Coach Washington too. Good stuff right there. 

And here's offensive line coach Greg Studrawa giving Thayer Munford's mom the good news. Most captain votes on the team! 

Welp, that's it. Whenever I refer to Studrawa from here on it, I'm rolling with "Coach Stud" exactly the way Thayer's mom says it. Perfect. 

Kamryn Babb isn't a name that immediately pops into most people's heads when they think about 2021 Ohio State football because Babb's been to hell and back with injuries. To his credit, the dude clearly still makes an impact on the locker room. This is another one, when you think about what he's gone through, that'll hit you in the feels. 

Here's Jonathon Cooper destroying Seattle's offensive line. Coop's been doing work out in Denver so far this preseason. 

Coop's also experienced some adversity recently, going through three heart procedures in order to get on the field for the Broncos. 

Noah Potter's pup looks like a very good boy. 

CO2 getting in that work is a thing of beauty. 

The guys were given disposable cameras during camp. One photo stands above the rest. 

Super cool of the program to send a shoutout to Hamilton West Side as they prepared for a Little League World Series game Thursday night. The little dudes beat their California opponent and just beat South Dakota today, earning a spot in the Little League World Series final.  

Of course it shouldn't come as a surprise the Buckeyes would recognize the Hamilton squad considering Ryan Day was a stud in little league and even met his wife when both were on the same tee ball team. 

I feel like I'm fairly knowledgeable on Buckeye history but this one was a learning this week. 

As a fellow Chris and a dog-lover (who isn't?), I fully endorse replacing Brutus' goofy ass with a dog named Chris. 

The NIL deals continued to roll in this week. One of the most notable came as five Buckeyes headlined by C.J. Stroud and Chris Olave scored new rides. 

Haskell Garrett and E.J. Liddell partnered up in the banking space. 

Quinn Ewers, who somewhat surprisingly wasn't the first Buckeye to earn some new wheels, did strike a partnership with Ricart to not only drive around a new truck but to also drive funds to A Kid Again. 

QB1 out here dropping dimes. 

And it's not just the football team preparing for football season. TBDBITL's out there getting work in as well. 

Chase Young out here getting his Family Feud-on. 

David Baker is the man and it looks like Ryan Day's squad had a chance to hear from him during their trip up to Canton last week. 

We see you, E.J. Back in the lab. 

Real recognize real in the Ohio State wide receivers room.
