Every week, Eleven Warriors will dive into the mentions of Ohio State's coaches and players to bring you the #HotTakes and ramblings of Buckeye Nation. This week, we're taking a look at how Ohio State fans handled the close TCU win and oh buddy, it's time for some of you to log off.

The Buckeyes needed a second-half comeback after falling behind 21-13 early in the third quarter, but Dwayne Haskins and the offense came alive, and the local squad scored 27 of the game's last 34 points to notch a 40-28 win.

It was the last game of the season without Urban Meyer on the sideline, but that didn't stop Buckeye Nation from filling up his mentions.

@ Urban Meyer

Some pregame love for both Meyer and former Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow, who led LSU to a big upset win over Auburn on the road.

Has anyone ever seen Meyer "sitting back" or in any form of a relaxed state?

Lynzie, pay attention. Turn on a television once in a while. Or better yet, check out the fantastic coverage on that website called Eleven Warriors.

Wait, can Meyer play linebacker or safety? This idea may have some legs.

Super helpful MK, thank you.

Yeah coach, learn how to change the genetic makeup of these players and make them faster.

Paging @OldTakesExposed.

This guy definitely didn't know Ryan Day was the acting head coach last night. 

Okay, first of all, he wasn't at the game. Just type in ElevenWarriors.com into your browser and we will give you all the information you need.

And man, "Haskins is wrecking the team" is such a very strange hill to die on.

Once the game finally ended, the tone changed, however.

If you find yourself in a quiet moment this week, please extend your thoughts and prayers to Tulane.

@ Ryan Day

Buckeye fans saluted and commended Day for manning the ship during Meyer's three-game suspension.

Some were still mad online, however.

@ Dwayne Haskins

Ohio State's sophomore quarterback had another stellar outing, throwing for 344 yards and totaling three touchdowns in the 12-point win.

I guess we'll agree to disagree.

Does anyone know where Haskins went? I was unaware he was gone.

That's more like it.

I actually kind of agree.

I've always considered Tom Brady a power back as well.

@ Nick Bosa

A lot of people enjoyed the strip-sack that gave Ohio State its first touchdown.

Whoa whoa whoa, just like that? No candles? No romance? Nothing written in the sky. Try harder Alex, he's worth it!

And then Bosa went down with the injury, and everyone was basically inconsolable.

Some handle stress in an unhealthy way, though. I stress-eat Doritos. Others make bad tweets.

How dare you, Nick?

Just no.

@ Austin Mack

Austin Mack had a rough night. The standout receiver is usually very sure-handed, but he had several dropped passes in crucial spots against TCU.

We're breaking these tweets up. One set is from the reasonable crew, and the other is from the it's time to log off squad.

Let's lead with the positive.

Well done, Twitterers above. Now the following have been ranked in order of, not so bad - we're kind of teetering here, to it's time to stop using the Internet for a minimum of 72 hours.

Yeah he literally owes you nothing.

Good one Greg.

You dropped a few passes. Quit your passion.

This one was particularly bad because I just imagined whoever manages the Wu Tang Clan Twitter account (please be Ghostface) getting that notification and shaking their head.

Steven. This was so very bad on so many levels. I'm going to need you to deactivate your account.
