Photo: J.J. Watt loses bet to Buckeye teammates, dresses in Ohio State gear

As if Wisconsin’s 59-0 defeat to Ohio State in last weekend’s Big Ten championship game wasn’t bad enough, J.J. Watt had to do this.

Watt, the former Wisconsin star defensive end, and former Ohio State stars John Simon, DeVier Posey and Mike Vrabel, all members of the Houston Texas, made a bet on the outcome of the Big Ten title game.

Obviously, the Buckeyes won, meaning Watt had to don Ohio State attire Wednesday to the team facility and during a press conference.

I wonder if this was more painful than the decisive loss.

“I’ll be taking a long shower at the end of the day,” Watt said.

Watt was asked if he would make any bets with teammates on the Outback Bowl vs. Auburn. Like, former Illinois and Auburn fullback Jay Prosch.

“I’ve got to talk to my brothers, see what things are looking like up there (in Madison),” he said.

Watt’s brothers, Derek and T.J., are current Wisconsin players.
