Nice Move

Cardale Jones, the Ohio State quarterback who has never started a college football game that didn’t end with him celebrating in confetti, is in a bit of hot water after tweeting what some would call “misogynistic” thoughts about female sports fans.

While his thoughts are probably shared by a lot of people (even girls), it’s never smart to broadcast controversial opinions as a public figure because the media will hammer you for it. Especially in the summer when sports columnists are vultures yearning for stories like this to fill their weekly publishing quotas. Former West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett shared similar thoughts last year and was forced to apologize and delete his Twitter account.

I think everyone can agree that Jones is not exactly Twitter savvy. Who remembers his tweet about going to class? We all do, because it is the greatest athlete tweet of all time.

Jones also used Twitter to promote a fake transfer to the University of Akron on “May Fools,” a holiday he made up last month.

Jones is playing the “I was hacked” card, presumably after getting hundreds of frantic texts from the football PR department. It’s a move nobody actually believes, but will accept because Jones’ little stunt was pretty harmless.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they forced him to delete his Twitter account, but what’s the point now? Everybody knows Jones is terrible at Twitter so they should just let him embrace it. Thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner? Tweet away, bud. 2016 presidential election in the swing state of Ohio? Do your worst, man. “Hot Topics With Cardale” is something I’d gladly tune into every week.

As long as Jones keeps winning championships, I think Buckeyes fans will find it in their hearts to forgive him.
