We’re back with our Game Day Twitter round up series, where we gather all of the best reactions, gifs, sarcasm, jokes and smack talk from across the college football Twitterverse.
Instead of packing into the ‘Shoe, tailgating in the parking lot or waiting in line at Out R Inn on a crisp, fall Saturday, the majority of Ohio State fans (hopefully) will take their game-day watching talents to their own living rooms. While Game Day on Twitter is always a glorious place to be, it means just a little bit more this year, as it’s the one and only place that fans can still yell, cheer and swear together safely in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the notable unavailable players in Ohio State’s Status Report Heard ‘Round the World:— Kyle Rowland (@KyleRowland) December 5, 2020

OL Josh Myers

Ryan Day, Greg Mattison, Matt Barnes and Corey Dennis aren't available to coach today, per Ohio State.— Colin Hass-Hill (@chasshill) December 5, 2020
It’s 10:45 a.m. on Michigan State day and things are already getting interesting.
This is a big deal, whether the racists in my inbox want to acknowledge it or not. https://t.co/vIuxiuBVzC— Matt Tamanini (@BWWMatt) December 5, 2020
What Matt said. Larry Johnson has already solidified his name in the Ohio State football history books, but this just earned him another page.
Laughing at everyone who thought “Ohio State -24” was the spread and not the depth chart— Ramzy Nasrallah (@ramzy) December 5, 2020
EVERYTHING IS FINE.
Ryan Day's full quote on College Gameday about having to watch Ohio State from home.— Wyatt Crosher (@wcrosher) December 5, 2020
Good stuff. pic.twitter.com/4Uw9cbCltS
Are we sure this was a quote from Ryan Day and not from yours truly?
Feel like they could have at least filmed this game on an iphone 11 and not a 5s.— Dave Holmes (@DaveHolmesTV) December 5, 2020
This is going to be a long, dizzy three hours.
You have to love that Ohio State just marched 80 yards down the field without a clean snap the entire drive.— Ari Wasserman (@AriWasserman) December 5, 2020
Two words: Justin. Fields.
JUSTIN FIELDS SWEET FEET— PFF College (@PFF_College) December 5, 2020
Someone teach Kevin Wilson about the quarterback sneak— Colton Denning (@Dubsco) December 5, 2020
What a luxury it is to have Justin Fields— Jason Priestas (@priestas) December 5, 2020
I don’t even want to think about how the first few drives of this game would have went with anyone else other than Fields in the pocket.
idea:— Matt Brown (@MattBrownEP) December 5, 2020
play the second half using backyard football rules. no snaps. defensive linemen must shout ONE MISSISSIPPI TWO MISSISSIPPI before crossing line of scrimmage
Somehow Michigan State has the worst snap of the day.— Kevin Harrish (@Kevinish) December 5, 2020
Gotta tell ya, I didn’t see that one coming.
Chill on my guy, switching positions in a week isn’t easy plus making all the correct calls. https://t.co/4aIJgt03Ee— Billy Price (@b_price53) December 5, 2020
For the record playing center is a HELL of a difference from playing guard. You’re responsible for yourself and the rest of the lines responsibilities. It’s not easy to step into that in a week.— Branden Bowen (@BrandenBowen) December 5, 2020
Poke fun all you want, but former Buckeye O-linemen standing up for Harry is the best thing you’ll see all day.

Sorry Billy and Branden...one more. I couldn’t help myself.

They can take away the touchdown, but they can never take away this high five between Garrett Wilson and Jameson Williams as they crossed the end zone which is all that matters imo!
Again, Justin Fields is doing this without the head coach/personal QB coach/play-caller and the quarterback coach in the stadium.— Colin Hass-Hill (@chasshill) December 5, 2020
And without half his offensive line.
Rocky Lombauserman— Brett (@BLeez17) December 5, 2020
More like Rocky Lamebardi am I right?— Scarlet & Game (@ScarletAndGame) December 5, 2020
Which pun is your favorite? It’s the Lombauserman for me.
If I were a ref, you could get away with 12 men on the field 90% of the time. I would get tired of counting before every play.— Dave Holmes (@DaveHolmesTV) December 5, 2020
My undiagnosed ADD could NEVER.
Lmao this team beat Michigan decisively.— Kevin Harrish (@Kevinish) December 5, 2020
Rocky Lombardi threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns against Michigan. Can you imagine what Justin Fields would do? No seriously, like...can you imagine!?!?
Justin Fields can have my ribs— Connor Lemons (@lemons_connor) December 5, 2020
Let him get one more TD and then lock him up in an incubator.
Haskell Garrett is the best player in the country to be shot in the face and then score a touchdown— lukezim (@lukezim) December 5, 2020
This man was shot in the face over 3 months ago, had to go on a liquid diet while still attempting to keep weight....and he’s not only doing a serviceable job for the Buckeyes’ defense (which would be more than enough to ask from the guy!), but he’s absolutely crushing it and then some this season.
Haskell Garrett with the tip to himself for the TD! #GoBucks pic.twitter.com/6Wly1JexLn— Buckeye Videos+ (@BuckeyeVideos) December 5, 2020
Here’s the replay in case you missed it because oh I don’t know the camera angle just didn’t show it.
Haskell Garrett Garrett Wilson— Ohio State Football (@OhioStateFB) December 5, 2020
It’s like I always said... Garrett was going to score a touchdown today.
If you had told me before this game that Haskell Garrett would score a touchdown and Wyatt Davis would have a catch, I would've thought Ohio State was REALLY shorthanded.— Sarah (@sarbucks) December 5, 2020
Garrett’s pick 6 was shortly followed by a Wyatt Davis reception and ya know what? I love this game. (And I really didn’t think I would) (Still miss you, Ryan Day)
I’m going to sue you.— Kevin Harrish (@Kevinish) December 5, 2020
Nooooo Wyatt. Noooooo!
That Justin Fields block at the end pic.twitter.com/sjQi61kEmD— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) December 5, 2020
If the friendship isn’t like Justin and Trey’s, I don’t want it.
Petition to make all future Ohio State games 30 minutes— Jason Priestas (@priestas) December 5, 2020
Can someone tell Ohio State that they have to continue playing football after the half?
Shaun Wade goes full extension for the interception pic.twitter.com/bA1qah0ct1— Buckeye Sports Bulletin (@Buckeye_Sports) December 5, 2020
Shaun Wade got the second half message. What is it about interceptions that make me so ridiculously happy?
Every time Ohio State has a bad snap approximately 11 million people say “ope” in their living rooms— Ramzy Nasrallah (@ramzy) December 5, 2020
Every. Single. Time.
I have never missed Joel Klatt more than I have as Dan Orlovsky enters hour two of his Justin Fields should not be picked number 2 overall podcast.— Ben Koo (@bkoo) December 5, 2020
I’m just getting the vibe that Dan hasn’t watched Justin Fields yet this year, and when studying for this game he watched the Indiana game and the Indiana game only.
Ah, yes. Any time you can kick a field goal to go from four scores down (31) to four scores down (28), you have to do it.— Tom Orr (@TomOrr4) December 5, 2020
I see no other viable option.
Jim Tressel is beaming right now. pic.twitter.com/Joj04T04HG— Eleven Warriors (@11W) December 5, 2020
Just a measly 74 yard punt. Drue Chrisman and East Lansing’s love affair continues.
Better than I was in college fasho, future bright! https://t.co/yaWQx6lWFY— Terry McLaurin (@TheTerry_25) December 5, 2020
You heard it here first from the GOAT himself!
The Big Ten wouldn’t be “changing the rule to help Ohio State.” The Big Ten would be tweaking an awful rule to help make sure Ohio State doesn’t get absolutely hosed due to an illogical technicality.— Sam Block (@theblockspot) December 5, 2020
All I know is if Ohio State isn’t able to play in the big ten championship - nobody should be in the big ten championship— Sean Nuernberger (@Sean4Heisman1) December 5, 2020
And that’s that on that.
