Ohio State’s Basketball Team Got Stranded En Route To Penn State

As we all know, the weather around these parts needs to be really, really bad for Penn State to cancel class. Such was the case yesterday, but the Ohio State basketball team decided to throw caution to the sleet and rough the tundra for its Wednesday game anyway.

Bad move.

According to a series of hilarious tweets from the team’s managers, the team plane took on the snowy conditions, and didn’t do so well.

OK, fairly normal reaction to the situation thus far.

Wait wut

OK good it looks like they were kidding about the nudi–


It seems the managers changed course shortly after that terrible decision, tweeting at the team’s beat writer from the Columbus Dispatch for a helping hand and settling for some more witty banter.

As I was typing this, the managers were kind enough to respond to some tweets of mine attempting to ascertain their whereabouts. Good news!

As for the “wilderness” they mentioned above:

They got so close!

What an ordeal. If they thought that experience was tough, just wait until they get a hold of DJ Newbill on Senior Day.
