In 1519, Hernán Cortés and his conquistadors landed in Mexico. He arrived in the New World with roughly six hundred men. Upon arrival, Cortés made history by destroying his ships – burning the wood from which they were created.

This sent a clear message to his men.

There is no turning back.

On Tuesday, Ohio State quarterback Devin Brown tweeted a photo that references Cortés’ now-famous moment, signaling that the redshirt freshman signal-caller has no intentions of leaving Columbus amid rumors that the Buckeyes could add a transfer quarterback in the offseason to replace Kyle McCord, who entered the transfer portal on Monday.

Brown has tweeted cryptic messages regarding his commitment to Ohio State before. In 2021 and 2022, the Draper, Utah, native tweeted clips from the 1998 film “Rounders,” in which Mike McDermott (Matt Damon) goes “all in” with Teddy “KGB” (John Malkovich) in a high-stakes poker game.
