Buckeye B-@-tle Cry: Early Nerves Turned into a Celebration As Ohio State Buried Michigan State Saturday Evening

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 look back at the slow start and strong finish of Ohio State's 34-10 win over Michigan State.

Ohio State's toughest test to date wasn't all that tough.

There were some early speed bumps, of course. The Buckeye offense met its stiffest resistance of the season, netting a season-low 16 yards in the first quarter. The Spartans got to Justin Fields two times on the game's first three drives, and Ohio State led just 3-0 despite having two possessions inside Michigan State's 30-yard line.

But Fields and the offense settled in once the second quarter started, going touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, field goal to close out the half and take a 27-10 lead into the break.

The defense was once again dominant and J.K. Dobbins, the game's MVP, carried Ohio State to a 24-point win.

The Buckeyes get a much-deserved bye week before their Friday Night showdown against Northwestern. Before we look ahead, let's review how we reacted to Ohio State's big win over the Spartans.

@ Ryan Day

A lot of people became personnel experts during the sluggish first quarter.

Oh, also play callers. A lot of great play callers out there.

The tone changed once the second quarter started.

For some of us, an ocean of blood is not enough blood. Sheesh.

Listen, I know the playoff committee left Ohio State on the doorstep in each of the last two seasons, but the difference wasn't hanging 50-plus on Michigan State instead of 30. The difference was getting boat-raced by a mediocre team. If Ohio State looks the way it has the rest of the season, it'll automatically be in. 

Just settle in and enjoy what has literally been the most dominant team in the country.

I'm fairly certain that's all he's ever wanted.

@ Justin Fields

Hi Mr 90's I sure hope you get stuck in traffic every time you drive somewhere for the rest of the month.

You love to see it.

Georgia really chose to keep the football away from this man SMH.

Oh buddy, you and me both.

This comparison comes up a lot.

I concur.

This was a good tweet.

This was a very good tweet. And seriously, including Justin Herbert over Fields is hilarious.

Yup. This is all my fault. 

Sorry Buckeye Nation.

This is so painfully accurate and I love it.

But he did and it was good.

These kids and their phrasing.

This logic is suspect. They're both very good.

Enjoy the bye week y'all.
