As an Ohio State fan, I’ll admit that I can, sometimes, be a little bias towards the scarlet and gray in certain situations. It’s too bad for Bucks’ wideout Michael Thomas that this isn’t one of those times, though.
Thomas, who’s one of the top NFL prospects should he decide to opt for the league following this season, went all-in today on his Twitter account by throwing some fire towards the Alabama Crimson Tide, questioning the SEC power’s schedule by posting a pic of the teams they’ve played, which showed that Bama has only two currently ranked teams on there.
The tweet with the photo has since been deleted, but Thomas’ argument is that this whole SEC bias thing should probably end and those in the Big Ten—particularly his Buckeyes who are ranked No. 6 in the current AP Poll—should be given a little bit more credit.
Shit like this isn’t too out of the ordinary this time, of course, as teams start jockeying for position and respect from the College Football Playoff Committee as conference title games are to be played this weekend.
The player continued by posting a pic of the current rankings both from the preseason and now in both the Big Ten and SEC, further tossing salt in the wound he hoped he opened as he questioned why Bama is sitting at No. 2 in the nation.
Never am I a hater, salty, or whatever else y’all want to call me. It’s called copy and paste. Try it it’s easy… pic.twitter.com/EgdOsABaSg

Thomas can say all he wants to about the difficultly of the Big Ten this year as both Iowa and Michigan State are in the top-five of the AP Poll, but had Ohio State not shit the bed two weeks ago against the Spartans, the wide receiver’s Twitter trolling wouldn’t have been necessary in the first place.
There’s always debate between these two conferences, so it just continues with this shit.
