Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliott thinks targeting call against Michigan, um, stinks
Ohio State and Michigan can’t agree on anything.
In fact, it took a major injury in 2014 for compassion between the archrivals to go viral.
However, on Saturday, Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott sided with the hated Wolverines after a targeting call cost Michigan linebacker Joe Bolden in its battle with Michigan State.
Before heading off to the Horseshoe for a night game with Penn State, Elliott took to Twitter to let everyone know what he felt about the call.

Officiating expert @MikePereira is watching games with us today. The look on his face when he saw that Michigan targeting call said it all.

Targeting call is so inconsistent. Michigan loses a player and it's questionable…a couple of hits in Alabama-TexasA&M and not even a flag

Michigan's shutout streak is over. There will forever be an asterisk tied to its conclusion after that targeting call.

Jake Ruddock gets hit twice after he slides, no penalty. But now Michigan gets hit with targeting call. Watch in real speed, not slow mo
