Jared Sullinger calls Ohio State soft, wants to suit up
VCU led Ohio State 28-18 at one point in the first half of their NCAA tournament second-round game. Count former Buckeye star Jared Sullinger among Ohio State fans who weren't happy with the team's performance.
Sullinger tweeted that the Buckeyes were playing "soft" and wondered whether he could find a way to enter the game.
You think I got any eligibility left??? I hate when we play so SOFTTTTTT...,— Jared M.X. Sullinger (@Jared_Sully0) March 19, 2015
While we probably won't see Sullinger suiting up for the Buckeyes anytime soon, his pep talk seemed to work, at least temporarily: Within the first minute of the second half, the Buckeyes tied the game at 30, and the team took the lead soon after that.
