Ohio State players will think twice the next time they're about to sending anything out on social media.
Third string freshman quarterback Cardale Jones made headlines on Friday when he tweeted, "Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS." It turns out the tweet has come back to bite him as Jones won't be suiting up for the Buckeyes on Saturday night.
Ohio State 3rd string QB Cardale Jones will not dress for the Buckeyes tonight. Not injury-related. Must be tweet-related.

Maybe Ohio State should have a class about the consequences of tweeting before you think, not that Jones would attend. The Buckeyes play Nebraska on Saturday night and Jones likely wouldn't have played anyway. He's behind sophomore Braxton Miller and junior Kenny Guiton on the Ohio State depth chart.
