UPDATE (1:41 P.M.): BTN's Taylor Rooks reached out to Tyvis Powell for the reasoning behind the semi-retirement:
Buckeye fans are sad they won't be Twitter entertained by Tyvis Powell & Darron Lee, so I asked him about the hiatus. pic.twitter.com/3xQrax7Zg4— Taylor Rooks (@TaylorRooks) January 23, 2015
Well, the off-season just got real, y'all. While this isn't on the level of Carlos Hyde being accused of punching a woman in a seedy downtown bar, it's about as bad of news that's likely to come from the most likable team in Ohio State's history:
Darron Lee and Tyvis Powell are retiring from Twitter until after spring ball.
Yes, just two days after running a legendary tag-team effort on the Heisman finalists, Lee and Powell (for reasons truly unknown) have announced they are retiring their Twitter accounts until after spring ball:
I guess I'll talk to yall after spring ball, BACK TO THE GRIND!!!— Tyvis Powell (@1Tyvis) January 23, 2015
I'm gunna check back in with y'all in a couple months...chao— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) January 23, 2015
Lee and Powell are too of Ohio State's best Tweeters, and as an avid fan of their work, it's hard for me to express how disappointed I am about this news. Alas, such are the breaks of the game.
