The Ohio State Buckeyes had their game canceled, but they got to enjoy Michigan get destroyed by Wisconsin.
The Ohio State Buckeyes faithful were looking forward to watching their beloved team take on Maryland this weekend. However, reality sunk in that we’re still living in the midst of a global pandemic. Eight Terrapins players tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week, so their game was effectively canceled with a make-up date unlikely. While Ohio State fans had to deal with an unexpected bye week, they did receive a comedic form of entertainment.
On Saturday, Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines got their doors kicked in by the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers. You best believe that Ohio State fans on Twitter enjoyed sending out their jokes at the expense of their rivals.
Ohio State fans enjoyed the Michigan meltdown
That sound you heard was every Buckeyes fan and alumni watching the Wolverines suffer to the entire nation on primetime television.
Michigan started their game off on the wrong foot, as quarterback Joe Milton threw an interception on their first play of the game, which was immediately converted into a touchdown by Wisconsin. That sent the tone of the contest, and the wheels fell off the Michigan wagon quickly. In fact, the Wolverines ended the half by putting up less than 100 yards of offense. That’s rarely ever leading a team to a win.
Ohio State fans heard Michigan fans brag about the hiring of Harbaugh, believing that he was the guy that would lead them to finally defeat the Buckeyes, with the hopes of him finally bringing them their first National Championship since 1997. Through six years, that has yet to come to fruition, and Ohio State laughed as they watched Harbaugh go winless against them.
To add to the Buckeyes’ joy, if this game turns out to be a loss, this will be the first time Michigan lost three-straight home games since 2009 when the infamous Rich Rodriguez was the head coach. Oh, are Buckeyes fans laughing tonight!
Wolverines fans may want the school to part ways with Harbaugh, but the Buckeyes will fight tooth and nail to ensure that doesn’t happen. They want to see “entertaining games” like they did on Saturday night. Yeah, good luck selling that to Michigan fans.
