Joe Burrow made his first collegiate start on Sunday night, leading LSU against No. 8 Miami.
Since the game was on Sunday night and didn't conflict with Ohio State's own game or practices, Burrows former Buckeye teammates got to watch their friend lead his team to a huge victory.
And they were ecstatic for him.

Never thought I would be at home screaming and going crazy for LSU #GoJoe— Dre'Mont Jones (@TheOfficial_80) September 3, 2018
Literally just thought the same thing. https://t.co/zTvs2XFiAL— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) September 3, 2018
The craziest thing about all these reactions is the variety of players giving them. It's not just guys from his position group or even players from just the offensive side of the ball, it's wide receivers, defensive linemen, and even a former walk-on special teams player.
It sure seems like Burrow was nearly universally liked at Ohio State, and now all those guys want nothing more than to see him light it up at LSU. And so far, he's doing them proud.
