Rutgers center Myles Johnson fouled out of Wednesday night's game at Ohio State, and he wasn't happy about it to say the least.

Just minutes after the Scarlet Knights' 80-68 loss to the Buckeyes, Johnson took to Twitter to question the integrity of the officials – and proclaim that there will be “no cheating shit” when Ohio State plays at Rutgers on Jan. 9 – in a pair of since-deleted tweets.

The foul which forced him to leave the game:

Johnson's foul-out changed the course of Wednesday night's game in a big way. He was starting in front of Cliff Omouryi, who missed the game with a knee injury, and fellow big man Mamadou Doucoure had four fouls in 21 minutes.

Before Johnson fouled out of the game with 8:44 to play, Rutgers led 59-51. Ohio State outscored the Scarlet Knights 29-9 for the rest of the game.
