Ohio State got some easy bulletin board material this week when Oklahoma freshman quarterback Austin Kendall said the Buckeyes had a “basic” defense. The comment was made on a Sooners’ pregame show during the week leading up to the game, and garnered a lot of attention for obvious reasons.
Well, that trash talk apparently did nothing but ignite a fire into the Silver Bullets, who had a pretty dang good game Saturday night, as they rolled past the Sooners 42-24 in Norman.
Please believe, the Buckeyes were not quiet after the game.
One of the defensive leaders, Raekwon McMillan got his hands on a great sign:
It looked like Jalyn Holmes was ready to take that thing home:

Redshirt freshman Dre’Mont Jones chimed in:
Cardale Jones, like many of us, wanted to see Kendall get some snaps:
Don’t be surprised if teams are silent the week before they play the Buckeyes from here on out this season.
Stay “basic”, Bucks.
