‘A**Kicking!!!’: LeBron James reacts to Michigan blowing out Ohio State 45-23 in Big Ten shock

‘Good Ole Old Fashion A** Kicking!!!’: LeBron James reacts to Michigan blowing out Ohio State 45-23 in Big Ten blockbuster after complaining about losing him due to Lakers clash missed with the San Antonio Spurs

LeBron James tweeted his thoughts following Ohio State’s brutal 45-23 loss to Michigan, which could derail the Buckeyes’ national title hopes.

Earlier in the day, James expressed frustration at not being able to attend the much-hyped college football showdown between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan at Horseshoe Saturday.

After the stunning turn of events, The King tweeted ‘Good ol’ fashion A** kicking!!!’

James has long been known as a fan of Ohio State University track and field and is often seen at Ohio Stadium during football season.

Despite his best wishes, the four-time NBA MVP failed to make the game, watching from a television screen like millions across the country.

It was probably the best thing James didn’t get to see in person as his Buckeyes suffered their first loss of the season as Michigan rushed to a seismic road win.

The LA Lakers away game in San Antonio on Saturday night made it impossible for James to make it to Ohio.

“I can’t believe I’m not available for this game today!” James continued Twitter. ‘That’s crazy.’

He later tweeted “Let’s Gooooooooooooo BUCKS” shortly after the game started.

The Game, as it’s often called, saw two of college football’s best players compete in what is arguably the most coveted game on the calendar.
