Following Ohio State’s loss against the Michigan State Spartans this past week, Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott had some criticism for his coaching staff. He was not happy with the play calling that they had and he made that very well known to the media.
That was not very appreciated by many Ohio State fans and staff, but his teammates are rallying in support of him.
One player in particular that jumped in to back Elliott was star defensive player Joey Bosa.

Urban Meyer said that he also agreed with some of what Elliott said, although he didn’t think it was the right approach or platform for the running back to voice his displeasure. However, there is no doubt there were some flaws in the game plan which ended up costing the Buckeyes the game.
Regardless of everyone’s opinion on what happened, Elliott apologized and his teammates are in his corner.
It’s probably time for everyone to move on.
