Carman attended Ohio State’s game against Oklahoma on Sept. 9, along with numerous recruits, and watched the offense struggle all night in a 31-16 loss. His Tweet set off a chain reaction of reactions and then reactions to those reactions.
“Can someone get a memo to ALL RECRUITS of EVERY SCHOOL,” ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit wrote, “to please keep quiet and worry about their own teams. Not a good look for these guys.”

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Monday he was aware of Carman’s comment. Center Billy Price urged recruits on Tuesday to leave those type of comments to the coaches and players inside the program.
“Until you are a part of this program and you put the work in just as much as these other guys have,” Price said, “your opinion and some of your voices don’t need to be heard.”

Meanwhile, the Centerville grad and former Buckeye Herbstreit went back and forth with Carman on Twitter.
“Pretty sure I wouldn’t have any problems in Dabo Swinney’s or Clay Helton’s locker room for my OPINION on OSU’s qb issues,” Carman wrote.
