The decades long college football rivalry between Ohio State University and the University of Michigan just got a little more heated yesterday, but this time on Twitter. After sports website Bleacher Report tweeted that Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh had received a five-year contract extension, the official account for Ohio State Football went Full Petty-mode and “liked” the post.
That’s it. We’re pulling out the flag. Shitposting. Ohio State. 15-yard penalty from the spot of the foul. Repeat first down.
Ohio State Football’s social media account didn’t stop there, later responding to Bleacher Report’s post about the infamous “liked” tweet. These two teams might not play each other on the field until next fall, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t ready to tear each other limb-from-limb right here and now.
Even though Ohio State faces Alabama in Monday night’s National Championship game, that didn’t stop whoever runs OSU’s social media from taking a shot at their #1 Big Ten rival. While Ohio State owned Michigan online, they’ve also owned Michigan on the field, having beaten the Wolverines in every matchup during Harbaugh’s tenure as coach.
Folks, we mean it when we say that posting online should be considered an official NCAA sport. It clearly gets the fans riled up.
Who needs to watch Monday’s National Championship game? We’re going to stick around on this thread and refresh the comments.
