Every week, Eleven Warriors dives 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 another dominant win over Michigan.
Time is a flat circle.
Certain things change, but Ohio State's dominance over Michigan didn't on Saturday. The Buckeyes had a new, born-outside-of-Ohio head coach and a quarterback making his first-ever appearance in this rivalry game. It didn't stop the guys wearing Scarlet and Gray from hanging 56 points on the Wolverines in a 29-point rout.
Justin Fields threw for a non-Rutgers career-high 302 yards and four touchdowns. J.K. Dobbins ran for a career-high 211 yards and added four touchdowns himself. Day was so proud of his team and the win that he was nearly brought to tears in his postgame interview.
And as Michigan fans drained from the stadium before the end of the game — even though their tickets gave them access to stay and watch all four quarters — the Buckeye fans in attendance took over the same way the team on the field did.
You just absolutely love to see it. Let's get to the mentions.
@ Ryan Day
Maybe these Michigan fellas should put a halt on their custom shirts for a few years.
Finish them @ryandaytime— J (@bucknut27) November 30, 2019
Y'all were bloodthirsty on Saturday. I get it.
Drop 60 on them again @ryandaytime— Ryan (@ChefRyan__) November 30, 2019
@ryandaytime gone head and hang that 70 ball up— Dat Boi Tone (@tonimack_ii) November 30, 2019
Hang 60 on 'em! No 70! How 'bout A BILLION!
@ryandaytime Go to Hell Coach! You are nothing like Urban and never will be. The longer you stay in OSU the more you haunt them.— markg (@markg52337430) November 30, 2019
Ohhhh stay salty my dude.
There are an ocean of these kind of pictures in Ohio State's mentions every week — a very moms making memes on facebook energy to them — and I almost unanimously ignore them. For whatever reason this one made me chortle.
He gets us.
@ Justin Fields
@justnfields <<<<<<<<<<<<< Who doesn't love Justin Fields?— Mad Molly (@MadMolly10) November 30, 2019
Well, probably the whole state of Michigan, for starters.

Fields was a bit amped to start the game, but oh buddy did he settle in.
DIME by @justnfields— Just Jefe (@SlumbaPartySlim) November 30, 2019
34 Touchdowns 1 INT for @justnfields this season. Crazy Numbers— Ron Milline (@RonMilline) November 30, 2019
And to think they got even crazier as the game went on.
How did we give up @justnfields for this pathetic excuse of a QB that goes by Jake Fromm?— AD (@AustinDurnwald) November 30, 2019
Sad Georgia fans returned to Fields' mentions this week.
The only thing that thwarted the good vibes on Saturday is when we all thought Fields was done for the season after what appeared to be a serious knee injury.
Take my leg bro @justnfields— Jake (@reaIJakeRose) November 30, 2019
Fortunately, he did say "sike."
Leave poor Tathan out of this y'all.
@ J.K. Dobbins

It was all Dobbins on the opening drive, and that sad Michigan defender is still falling through an empty void.
Some of the graphics I see on a weekly basis kill me. Why did y'all make Dobbins look like one of the children from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.
ichigan gonna get tired of trying to tackle @Jkdobbins22 today!— ichael Hocter (@mhocter) November 30, 2019
Correct. So they tried a different strategy...
I still can't get over this. Neither can y'all.

I'm really uncomfortable with this analogy, Carolyn.
That's not different. That's weird. pic.twitter.com/LrnZ45wFc5— Dwayne Walton (@23dwayne) November 30, 2019
Like... two guys worked together to do this. It was a collaborative effort. I need to hear how they schemed this up.
Anyway back to normal football stuff.
@Jkdobbins22 ur doing great sweetie— Emily Cremeans (@emilyy_3463) November 30, 2019
I had watched this game three times before noticing this.

Dobbins started the game dribbling. He ended the game dunking on Michigan.

Someone with video editing $killz should take these highlights and set it to this song:
That's it for this week. See y'all in Indianapolis.
