Ohio State was handed its first loss of the season Saturday against Michigan State, and some players took it better than others.
During post-game interviews, OSU running back Ezekiel Elliott was one of the players that didn’t handle himself very well. Blaming the loss on play-calling, Elliott felt his team as not put in the position to win the game. Not only did he blame the coaching, but he also announced his decision to enter the NFL Draft – something players usually wait until after the season or even after the bowl game to announce. It was not a good look, by any means, and created quite the media stir.
ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla, for instance, believes Urban Meyer should bench Elliott next Saturday against Michigan, wondering if he “wasted 30 bucks on [Meyers’] new book.”
If Urban Meyer plays Ezekiel Elliott next Saturday, I just wasted 30 bucks on his new book. Above The Line. Need to do the right thing.

It will be interesting to see how Meyer handles the situation.
