Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott was very outgoing with the media following Ohio State's 17-14 loss to Michigan State on Saturday.

Elliott, the Big Ten's leading rusher heading into Week 12, carried the ball 12 times for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Buckeyes' loss. That put an end to his streak of 15-straight 100-yard rushing games, dating back to last season.
According to the Ohio State Radio Network, Elliott had the following to say after the game.
"The coaching staff didn't put us in position to win," Elliott said. "That's a team (Michigan State) we should beat."https://twitter.com/BTNRickPizzo/status/668226560030326785
According to reports, which BTN Studio Host Dave Revsine spoke about as well, Elliott also added, "this is my last game in The Shoe. There's no chance I'm coming back."

Elliott later releaved to BTN's Rick Pizzo that he was hospitalized this week with a leg infection and a fever that reached 103 degrees, but he didn't want to use that as an excuse today.https://twitter.com/BTNRickPizzo/status/668227801435238400
Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones also added a tweet following the game, which implied he will be leaving OSU early as well.
