Shaquille O’Neal is not having none of Ohio State fans trying to bandwagon Joe Burrow.
The sophomore play-caller spent his first three seasons of college football playing for Ohio State before transferring to LSU. After advancing to the Super Bowl, the hall of fame NBA player posted Burrow’s statement regarding Ohio State Buckeyes fans lauding him as the first player from the university to play in the Super Bowl.
“It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish. I’ll always be an LSU Tiger. I don’t know why Ohio State fans try to claim me.”
Before becoming a superstar at LSU, Joe Burrow was a third-string quarterback at Ohio State. He eventually managed to get the starting spot, but lost the battle to Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
He would then author one of the best seasons while at LSU, leading the Tigers to the title and winning the Heisman Trophy in the process.
Haskins has struggled in the NFL while the 25-year-old Burrow is flourishing as we saw when he engineered a comeback from 21-3 on the road at Arrowhead Stadium.
Burrow also has a basketball background, as he averaged 17.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 steals per game in three years of high school hoops. We think he picked the right sport.
