One thing has been clear since the beginning: Cardale Jones doesn't give a damn about much. It's what led to "we ain't come to play school!" but it's also the coal that propelled Ohio State's hell train straight through the postseason field.
Last night at the EPSYs — the first contest Dolodale's left empty-handed in recent memory – Cardale, who was sitting directly behind Urban Meyer, openly tried MMA champion Ronda Rousey:
Is it weird that I have a crush on @RondaRousey and scared of her at the same time— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) July 16, 2015
Soooooooo @RondaRousey what you doing after the show?— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) July 16, 2015
@RondaRousey but if you already talking to a UFC fighter I'm cool— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) July 16, 2015
I've never witnesses it, but there's one type of bro who always has some elaborate blackjack heater story. Cardale laughs at that. The only L he's taken (other than the ESPY) since December is ordering Chipotle in a taco mecca like Los Angeles. Most people his age get blind drunk and take three times as many Ls in a single weekend.
So of course Ronda Rousey responded to Cardale, and she didn't exactly knock his teeth down his throat either:
Rousey doesn't consider it "weird" that Cardale is attracted and intimidated by her. Unfortunately, Rousey is in camp, and she "was in bed by, like, 9:30."
All in all, it's a much warmer reception than Floyd Mayweather received from Rousey.
