Ezekiel Elliott had some choice words for the coaching staff following the Ohio State Buckeyes’ loss last week against the Michigan State Spartans. He bad mouthed the coaches and then proceeded to enter his name into the 2016 NFL Draft. Ohio State was able to pull off a big win over the Michigan Wolverines earlier this afternoon and Elliott apologized for his comments following the win.
Ezekiel Elliott on last week: "I regret everything I said…I want to be the ultimate team player."

Ohio State won’t make it into the Big Ten championship game this season, which makes their loss even more painful. They were considered to be a top team in the country all season long, but one loss will do them in.
Throughout the course of the 2015 season, Elliott has carried the football 262 times for 1,672 yards and 19 touchdowns.
There is no question that the Buckeyes are going to miss Elliott next season when he leaves for the NFL. He could have come back for another season, but that wasn’t the best business decision for him.
