With both programs back among the nation’s elite, Ohio State and Michigan’s bitter football rivalry continues to pick up steam. And freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett decided he wanted to get in on the fun—no matter the cost to his video game career.
On Tuesday the young Buckeye sent out this tweet, declaring his refusal to buy EA Sports’ NCAA 14 because former-Wolverine Denard Robinson is on the cover:
I’m shall not buy NCAA 14 because of the person they placed on the cover. And yeah it’s that serious #TTUN

Barrett is a true freshman quarterback from Wichita, Tex. and was 247Sports’ third-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the nation. He also finished in the Top 100 overall recruits and is pegged as the heir apparent to Braxton Miller in Urban Meyer’s offense.
