Ok, Cool. Hook ‘Em. These were the words uttered over text by Coach Tom Herman to Coach Smith after he lambasted him on Twitter and through text messages.

There has been a growing animosity from Buckeye nation towards Tom Herman after his departure from Columbus in 2015. Herman played a key role in the Buckeyes last championship as he quickly became one of the hottest names in college football as their offensive coordinator.

But things changed a wee-bit when Coach Meyer criticized Herman for complaining about the players he inherited from Coach Charlie Strong in his first season at Texas. Of course it’s also been speculated by many that Tom Herman broke the story of Zach Smith, angering many Buckeye fans.

Through all of the animosity, millions of Ohio State fans will be Herman’s biggest fan on Saturday as Texas takes on Oklahoma for the second time this year in the Big 12 Championship. It will most likely take a Texas win for the Buckeyes to get into the College Football Playoff (assuming the Buckeyes will prevail over Northwestern and if Bama takes care of business as expected).

The Scarlet and Gray seem to be peaking at the right time of the season, and it’s as if everyone is finally coming together from a coaching aspect as well. So expect millions of Buckeye fans to be saying “Hook ‘Em” on Saturday, and also expect to her the occasional “Roll Tide.”

Do not expect to hear this any other day besides this coming Saturday.

Ok, Cool?
