It wasn't long ago that Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones was more known for an unfortunate tweet than his play on the field. Back in 2012, Jones, then a freshman with the Buckeyes, tweeted about his frustration with having to take classes at OSU instead of just playing football. As you'd guess, the comment didn't go over well with the college football community.

Thursday, Jones, who led Ohio State to a national title last year after filling in for fellow signal-caller J.T. Barrett, addressed the infamous tweet. He made it clear that he's learned from the mistake, adding that there is nothing more important than education.

Surely, Ohio State supporters are bigger fans of the more-mature Jones. 2015 could be a big year for him.
