Most college football players will tell you the worst part of their week is the hours leading up to the game on Saturday. They've done their preparation and can't do much more than sit around and wait. 

Today, Ohio State star running back Ezekiel Elliott chose to spend some of his waiting time on Twitter.

This apparently upset an Ohio State fan, who told him to "get off Twitter" and "focus."

">@EzekielElliott get off twitter and focus on your priorities. Especially right before a game.

Elliott, thankfully, called him out.

Don't tell college football players what to do, fans.
