Ohio State Players Have Thoughts For Dabo Swinney For Ranking Them No. 11 in His Coaches Poll

The nation's No. 11 team would like a word with Dabo Swinney.

The Buckeyes were cool and diplomatic leading up to Ohio State's Sugar Bowl matchup with Clemson, but after blasting the Tigers 49-28, the players made it clear just how much motivation they had after Swinney ranked Ohio State No. 11 in his coaches poll.

In the aftermath of the beatdown on the field, the Buckeyes took to social media to poke fun at Swinney for his antics.

And it's every bit as glorious as you'd hope.

After the game, Swinney said he didn't regret ranking the Buckeyes No. 11, saying "polls have nothing to do with motivation."

Clearly, the Buckeyes would beg to differ.
