OSU RB Ezekiel Elliott's Simple Twitter Message: "Big Ten Speed"

For years, the term "SEC speed" has been used by players in the conference to troll opponents. Heck, even yesterday, Missouri defensive star Markus Golden yelled itat a few Minnesota players. But after last night's Sugar Bowl victory by Ohio State, Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott has a new term he wants to get trending - "Big Ten speed."

Elliott rushed for 230 yards and two touchdowns against the Crimson Tide. It's clear Alabama had no answer for his speed - especially on his 85-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Will the term stick? It has a much better chance if Ohio State is able to upend Oregon in next week's title game.
