OSU's Cardale Jones The Morning After Being Named Starter: "Ready To Get To Work"

Before the season even began, Ohio State lost its star quarterback, Braxton Miller, to a shoulder injury. Now, Miller's backup, J.T. Barrett, has a broken ankle after getting tackled awkwardly against Michigan this past Saturday. The Buckeyes are now onto their third-string signal-caller - sophomore Cardale Jones. Jones has played sparingly this season, completing just 10-of-17 pass attempts for 118 yards and two touchdowns. Luckily, though, he seems up to the task of leading Ohio State in the Big Ten title game against Wisconsin this upcoming Saturday. Check out his first tweet Sunday morning.

Jones seems to have the right attitude heading into possibly the biggest moment of his football-playing career. He'll need to translate that into production if he wants to lead his team to a league title and a potential College Football Playoff berth.
