This Week in Twitter is a look at some of the week's best and most entertaining tweets from Buckeyeland and beyond.

It was a tough stretch for most of the week at Ohio State as the school grappled with the football team's first loss to Michigan in Columbus after over two decades. But then last night, the Pac-12 Championship happened.

And as it became increasingly more apparent that the Buckeyes were back on a trajectory to make the College Football Playoff, people started to get mad.

Salt does not quite provide the same level of nourishment as Wolverine tears, but it remains delicious all the same.

And like a storage dome sitting next to a highway in the months preceding winter, the piles of salt only continued to grow.

Absolutely scrumptious anguish.

Of course, some national media members — even those with TTUN ties — knew better than to not acknowledge the truth.

As word began to spread around the program that the Utes had gotten the best of the Trojans for a second time this season, the players started to put their game faces on for the CFP.

The leading producer in Ohio State's receivers room seems eager to get back on the field as soon as possible.

Another leader in the wideout corps may have revenge on his mind as the Buckeyes look towards a potential Playoff bid.

And as for other Ohio State receivers ready to put the football world back on notice?

The coaches and staff appear just as eager for a shot at redemption as the players.

Good news for the Buckeye football team didn't just start on Friday night, however. Now that the Big Ten regular season has wrapped up, the conference handed out its own end-of-year awards this week. C.J. Stroud has certainly become a familiar name around the B1G offices of late.

Similarly, Route Man Marv figures to be another guy on his way to becoming a household name at Big Ten HQ.

Stroud and Harrison Jr. were joined by Paris Johnson Jr. and Donovan Jackson as first-team offensive selections for the All-Big Ten squad. Emeka Egbuka, Matt Jones, and Dawand Jones filled in as second-team members; while Miyan Williams, Luke Wypler, and Cade Stover followed as third-team placements. TreVeyon Henderson rounded out the list of Buckeyes as an honorable mention recipient.

For the defense, Tommy Eichenberg, Zach Harrison, and J.T. Tuimoloau all made it as starters on the All-Conference unit. Ronnie Hickman and Michael Hall Jr. both found themselves selected for third-team spots. Five Ohio State players earned honorable mention including Denzel Burke, Jack Sawyer, Lathan Ransom, Steele Chambers, and Tanner McCalister.

Noah Ruggles found himself chosen for the third-team special teams unit, while Jesse Mirco also received honorable mention distinction.

Current Buckeyes were not the only football players in the state of Ohio to receive All-Conference placements this week. Former walk-on wide receiver Sam Wiglusz landed on the first-team All-MAC offense after tying for the conference lead in touchdown catches this season.

Additionally, ex-Buckeye linebacker Dallas Gant also snagged a starting spot on the All-MAC defense.

Meanwhile, former Ohio State defensive lineman Malik Barrow finally completed his collegiate football career this week after seven years and stops at five different schools.

As for the professional Buckeye football players, Parris Campbell paid tribute to his former quarterback Dwayne Haskins ahead of Monday Night Football in Week 12 of the NFL.

Later in the week as the month transitioned from November to December, the league announced its conference players of the month — Nick Bosa among them.

The conclusion of November also marked the end of National Epilepsy Awareness Month. As an epileptic himself, Justin Fields sat down with ESPN Bears reporter Courtney Cronin to discuss his journey with the condition and help raise awareness.

This Week in Twitter concludes with a shoutout to Gilmer, TX for the town high school's very handsome and creatively-designed mascot.

Gilmer can keep the nuts in speedos, however.
