This Week in Twitter is a look at some of the week's best and most entertaining tweets from Buckeyeland and beyond.
The week began with The Best Quarterback Room in College Football™ exporting another surplus pupil out into the world, this time with the unmulleted but excellently named Jagger LaRoe:
Im excited to announce that I will be continuing my athletic career at Texas A&M Commerce. I am looking forward to representing Texas A&M Commerce in its inaugural season in the FCS! Lets get to work! #GoLions pic.twitter.com/nD3Fv59kWg— Jagger Laroe (@jaggerlaroe) January 24, 2022
Jaylen Harris' final final Ohio State stats: Five catches, 54 yards and one college degree.
SO proud of this HOWL mentee: Jaylen Harris, a former WR on our football team. Injuries forced his out of the sport, but he kept up w/his studies, we stayed in touch & now he's now a graduate for THE Ohio State Univ. He's sent me the grad photos I requested. #GOBUCKS pic.twitter.com/h4vNJpTqrN— Dr. Lanier Frush Holt (@ohsolanier2) January 25, 2022
It takes a strong mentality to persevere like that. Good word. Mentality.

E.J. Liddell exceeded the 1,000-point career points threshold on Thursday in Minneapolis. Football recognize basketball:

This week 11W Deputy Editor Dan Hope took a stab at the 2022 Ohio State football depth chart, which included this take about the Buckeyes' Z-receiver:

That GIF from The Wolf of Wall Street is quite literally a message that says:
I'm Not Leaving, I'm Staying to Commit More Crimes Which Will Make the SEC Mad
...and we're all about that action here, good look Mitch.
Former Buckeye QB and fellow Lake Travis HS alum Matthew Baldwin has prudent Garrett Wilson thoughts.
Theres that.. and the fact that his football iq is Qb level and he also happens to be able to jump 40+ inches and beat pretty much anyone 1on1 to the ball. @GarrettWilson_V https://t.co/b4Pm0np9GX— Matthew Baldwin (@matthewb_6) January 27, 2022
Guess who's back. Back again. Carmen's back. Win again.

Chris Holtmann won his 100th game at Ohio State and shook twitter hands with an all-time Buckeye great.
We really appreciate you Clark.— Chris Holtmann (@ChrisHoltmann) January 28, 2022
Elsewhere, the People Telling on Urban Meyer machine kept humming:
Urban Meyer told one coach he never should have hired him and the coach was a failure and should quit the profession.— Matt Cannata (@CannataPFN) January 24, 2022
He also repeatedly berated receivers coach Sanjay Lal, according to sources who spoke to @AaronWilson_NFL.
So much to unpack.https://t.co/mv9ah2qG2q
For the uninformed, Sanjay Lal is to WR coaching what Bill Davis is to LB coaching, with one exception. It involved a tuxedo.
Speaking of former Ohio State linebacker coaches:

From the announcement:
“(Al) Washington comes to the Irish after spending the last three seasons at Ohio State. In his final season at Ohio State, Washington and the Buckeyes’ defense ranked in the Top-20 nationally in defensive touchdowns and turnover margin.”
Ah, yes of course. That's exactly what Buckeye fans remember about the 2021 defense.
Luke Wypler got t-boned, and not in the good Lawry's The Prime Rib kind of way.
Anyone know some places in Columbus that can fix this? pic.twitter.com/AsFx5voG0N— Wypler (@LukeWypler) January 28, 2022
Tough week for the Duane Washington Should Have Stayed in School crew.

Raise your hand if you thought a) Reggie Miller had this team record and b) it was unbreakable.
I need that jersey https://t.co/huiCBO4Xld— Dawand Jones (@dawandj79) January 24, 2022
Imagine Dawand trying to squeeze into that jersey. RIP, little jersey. And finally:
Members of the @OhioStateFB team came out to Olentangy Liberty tonight to support Natalie Gray an 8th grader who has been battling brain cancer.
