Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave is currently preparing for the NFL Draft, where he is likely to be one of the most impactful rookies in the league next season.

Despite that, the California native, who finished 2-1 against arch-rival Michigan over the course of his Ohio State career, is still thinking about “The Game” as he gets ready for the next level.

Recently, Olave shared his thoughts on the rivalry and what happened last season to the Buckeyes in Ann Arbor, as well as the standard he believes should be re-set going forward.

Ohio State had won eight in a row before last season’s loss, and Olave wants it to stay that way in the coming years.


“Losing to them is unacceptable,” Olave said according to Pro Football Focus Draft’s Twitter account.

The comment section was heated as usual, with some fans highlighting Olave’s career theatrics against the Wolverines. The speedy 6-foot-1 wideout consistently came up with big plays against “The Team Up North.”

Michigan fans refused to back down, however.

While last year’s win was only their second since 2011, the win meant the world to Michigan supporters. Wolverine fans seem unwilling to back down as the offseason trash talk heats up between the two bitter rivals.

Despite the back-and-forth trash talk, the flames of which were fanned by Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy saying, “All we know is beating Ohio State right now,” most Buckeye fans and supporters do not seem concerned that they have lost any momentum or confidence in the rivalry — judging by many of their recent comments on social media.
