Column: Ohio State’s social media team is the best there is and here’s an example why

@OhioStateFB is the !

This week is going to be a crazy one; the day job is getting insanely hectic as we prep for the holidays, apparently there is a fairly contentious election happening tomorrow, and the formerly undefeated, no-longer co-Big Ten East leading Rutgers Scarlet Knights are coming to Columbus for a primetime game on Saturday. Lots to be nervous about, if you ask me.

So, I was thankful when I started scrolling through the ‘Gram and I came across another perfect post from the Ohio State Football account.

We think we’ve seen this one before

Not only is “Exile” by Taylor “TSwizzle” Swift (featuring Bon Iver) a hauntingly lovely song with a poignant and heartbreaking message, but the fact that the OSU football social media team was able to wrap up a ton of the Twitter conversation from Saturday night’s game into a single, short video using the perfect, trendy pop song is chef’s kiss.

During the game, we pointed out that Cooper was looking to get a Joey Bosa-like sack:

While a number of followers pointed out that Zach Harrison had a play eerily similar to Sam Hubbard’s iconic takedown:

The folks behind @OhioStateFB are simply the best in the business. Between the funny and timely social media posts and the hype videos that make you either want to run through a brick wall or sob uncontrollably for the Buckeyes (and often times both), they have become an important part of the Ohio State online community.

So, if you aren’t following them on all social platforms, how can you call yourself a true Buckeye fan? Go ahead and follow them now, I won’t tell anybody you’re late to the party.

Now we just need to get them on TikTok and Snapchat!

After some unexpected start and stops, I am back to posting a column every single day from preseason camp until whenever Ohio State’s football season ends. Some days they will be longer and in depth, some days they will be short and sweet. Let me know what you think of this one, and what you’d like to see me discuss in the comments or on Twitter. Go Bucks!
