COLUMBUS, Ohio — It’s time for Ohio State to move on from the disappointing effort and outcome against Oklahoma.
At least that’s the message from a handful of the Buckeyes players who were made available to the media on Tuesday night at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
The Buckeyes are moving on and preparing for their upcoming matchup with Army (Saturday, 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox). It is the first ever matchup between Ohio State and the Black Knights.
Ohio State captain Billy Price also had some words for recruits who have decided to chime in on the bubbling quarterback controversy in Columbus.
He referenced a mistake in his own recruitment:
“I said after the game, ‘everyone’s got an opinion and they’re entitled to their opinion.’ Back in my recruiting days, I made a mistake,” Price said. “I was being recruited by a team and made a couple comments on Twitter about some stuff in regards to their team.”
Then addressed the recruits who tweeted that the team should give backup QB Dwayne Haskins a shot:
“Just kind of understand that you are being recruited as a high school athlete and you’re not part of the program at this point,” Price said. “You’re an extension of this program and you represent this program. But again, the opinions and things, leave that to the coaches, leave that to the players. Again, until you are part of the program and have put the work in just as much as the other guys have, you’re opinion and sometimes some of your voices don’t need to be heard. So in regards to that young man, sometimes it’s better to not be heard.”
