Buckeyes mascot to Ezekiel Elliott: Let me worry about Taylor Swift

Brutus Buckeye would prefer it if Ezekiel Elliott focuses on his studies and football.

Taylor Swift will be in Columbus, Ohio, for two nights, and it doesn’t look like she’ll have a shortage of suitors during his short stay.

Thursday morning, Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott tweeted at Swift, asking her on a date. And now, the school’s mascot, Brutus Buckeye, is getting in on the action.

Brutus wants Elliott to focus on his academics and football, and leave the entertaining of their “guest” to him. It’s quite a move.

We’re not sure how much Swift knows about Ohio State or college football, but she may want to respond before this spirals out of control.
