Cardale Jones’ college career essentially started when he took over for an injured J.T. Barrett against Michigan in 2014. He played one quarter against the rival Wolverines.

But just because he didn’t get much experience playing in college football’s best rivalry doesn’t mean he lacks strong feelings about it.

So on Saturday night, when Ohio State needed Michigan to take care of Iowa to improve its B1G East title hopes, Jones probably found himself in an awkward spot like many Buckeye fans — rooting for Michigan.

We all know how that turned out.

The always-opinionated former Ohio State safety Tyvis Powell took to Twitter to air those frustrations with Michigan’s loss. Jones retweeted this:

And late on Sunday night, Jones added an original message about Michigan:

Ohio State and Michigan will square off a week from Saturday, possibly with a B1G Championship spot and a College Football Playoff spot on the line.

Had Michigan won at Iowa, it would virtually been a play-in game. Now, if Penn State wins out and Ohio State beats Michigan, the Lions will represent the B1G East in Indianapolis.

Like last year, Jones and other Buckeyes wouldn’t be thrilled about missing out again.
