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 looking back at Ohio State's Friday night blowout win over Northwestern.
The Buckeyes continued bulldozing their way through their schedule last week, invading Evanston and coming away with a 52-3 win over Pat Fitzgerald and the Wildcats.
Ohio State piled up 480 yards of total offense against a solid Northwestern defense and followed a developing trend of explosive second quarters, scoring 24 unanswered points before the break.
The defense had another dominant outing as well, limiting the Wildcats offense to 199 yards (the Buckeyes haven't surrendered over 300 yards through seven games).
Throw in the 55-yard field goal as time ran out in the first half and Ohio State dominated in all three phases of the game.
Buckeye fans had very little to complain about. Let's get to the mentions.

Please, for the love of God, do not make the mistake of seasons past and underestimate the Wildcats tonight. We don't need another Iowa/Purdue game.
There was no underestimating here.
Coach @ryandaytime has Buckeyes -28 for sure.— Brennen Yaquinto (@BrennenYaquinto) October 19, 2019
I did too. If you're betting against the Buckeyes then you must hate money.
@ryandaytime should set a new record against ttun and win 89-0— Andy Leedom (@coach_leedom) October 19, 2019
@ Justin Fields
Man y'all were nervous about the West Division Night Game Curse.
Forever and ever. Fields tallied four touchdowns against Northwestern, bringing his season total to 30. Not bad, IMO.
How about Chris Olave snatching that thing out of the air like he's me and the football is the last piece of pizza at the pizza party.
Yeah alright sure.
Fields is out here helping people justify infidelity.
Your telling me we got @justnfields for another year— Mikey VanDyke (@MikeyVanDyke7) October 19, 2019
Chase Young has high praise for his quarterback. And speaking of the predator...

I think my favorite thing about this Buckeyes team is how amped @youngchase907 gets for his teammates.— John Repeat (@4JRutherford) October 19, 2019
Id take Chase Young over either Bosa.— Jacob Amery Fitch (@Jamery17) October 19, 2019

I guess that's what happens when you drill a career-long 55-yarder as time expires in the first half.
I SEE YOU @BlakeHaubeil!!— Jon Scott (@JonScottTV) October 19, 2019
I love you, @BlakeHaubeil.— Joey Lane (@JoeySmoke14) October 19, 2019
