Ezekiel Elliott blasts Ohio State play-calling, says there's 'no chance' he returns next year

New, comments

Strong words from the Buckeyes' star running back.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Ohio State lost to Michigan State to put its Big Ten East and College Football Playoff chances on life support, due in part to a weak offensive performance. Oddly, star running back Ezekiel Elliott only got 11 carries, and he railed on his coaches for that in the postgame press conference.

Elliott was so upset that he claims he's not coming back to Columbus for his senior season.

Cardale Jones also announced that he's leaving this year. Ohio State still has a regular season game to play at Michigan. For his part, OSU linebacker Darron Lee seemed to agree with Elliott.

To be fair to Ohio State's coaches, Elliott's health could have been a perfectly legitimate reason why he didn't get more carries.

Here's the video.
