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

The Memorial Tournament, a staple event on the PGA Tour, returned to its annual home of Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, this week. And, it’s safe to say, the Buckeyes were out in full force.

During the event, Buckeyes head football coach Ryan Day got some face time with one of Ohio State’s most notable alumni, golfing legend Jack Nicklaus.

While Day met with the Golden Bear, Rory McIlroy — a three-time FedEx Cup Champion — visited Ohio Stadium.

Although plenty of Buckeyes were in attendance, none of them experienced the tournament quite like Maxwell Moldovan. The Ohio State golfer played the course as a non-competitive marker, golfing alongside Davis Thompson on Thursday.

While Ohio State football players and coaches enjoyed some time at the links, Buckeyes men’s basketball coach Jake Diebler showed off his fastball at the Cleveland Guardians game.

Weirdly enough, Diebler’s predecessor, Chris Holtmann, tossed out the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game on Wednesday.

It’s almost time for a new era of Ohio State basketball uniforms, and the Buckeyes are taking inquiries regarding their next look.

The team also reportedly found out its opponent in the 2024 CBS Sports Classic, which will be played on Dec. 21.

Let’s give a warm welcome to the newest member of the Ohio State coaching community, Kirin Kumar!

Kumar brings quite the resume with her to Columbus after a successful four years at Miami (Ohio).

Bouncing over to the gridiron, Ohio State will allow fans to attend four fall practices at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center this year.

It appears we may be trending toward a meeting between Ohio State and Oregon under the lights at Autzen Stadium when the two College Football Playoff hopefuls clash on Oct. 12.

While those developments came down the pipeline, the Ohio State football team finds itself locked into its 2024 June Olympics, as the Buckeyes' players and coaching staff battle for supremacy in a variety of games. At the time of publication, the players seem to be dominating the field, leading the coaches 4-1.

In the NFL, former Ohio State center Corey Linsley called it a career after 10 seasons with the Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Chargers. 

This pair of former Buckeyes didn’t have to stray far from Columbus to catch up with one another.

Speaking of Mike Hall Jr., the Browns rookie put pen to paper on his first NFL contract on Friday.
