Ohio State's Posey: 'I hate Wisconsin'

The teams don't meet again on the football field until October 29 in Columbus, but already there is bulletin board material for the Wisconsin-Ohio State clash next fall.

DeVier PoseyICONOhio State WR DeVier Posey is eager for revenge against Wisconsin.

Jared Sullinger and his teammates aren't the only ones upset about losing their first game of the college basketball season on Saturday afternoon at the Kohl Center against Wisconsin, as DeVier Posey, a star receiver on the school's football team, vented his frustrations on Twitter following his school's loss to the Big Ten rival Badgers on the hardwood.

"I'll be totally honest I hate wisconsin.. With a passion Yeah I said it !!! I can't wait to play them again next season!!! Just being honest.

"Watching a game like that gets yo competitive juices going something crazy !!! Can't wait."

The school's athletic director, Gene Smith, apparently also feels the same way. Smith responded to Posey's tweet with a "feel ya bro!!!"

Posey caught 53 passes for 848 yards and 7 touchdowns for the Buckeyes last season but was one of five players suspended by the NCAA for the first five games of 2011 for selling memorabilia items and receiving improper benefits. He will, however, return in time for the clash with the Badgers.

Which Badger football player is ready to step up on Twitter and tweet a retort?
