Defending champion Ohio State Buckeyes were upset on Saturday by Michigan State in Columbus. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the Buckeyes have no shot at the National Championship, but it certainly doesn’t help.
Following the game, OSU’s star running back Ezekiel Elliot was critical of Urban Meyer’s play calling down the stretch and suggested that he didn’t get the ball enough.
Elliott: "I deserve more than 11 carries. I really do. I can't speak for the playcaller. I don't know what was going on."

He went on to say that he would turn pro after the season and wouldn’t return to Columbus.
Today, he took to Twitter to take back some of his comments following the game. Let’s give him a pass, he’s young and emotions were riding high.
