Never a stranger to speaking his mind, Cardale does so once again.

Cardale Jones is no stranger to Twitter controversies.

Long before he boat raced Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game, shocked the world by beating Alabama in SEC country, and then led OSU to a comfortable win over Oregon in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, Jones' famed "we ain't come to play SCHOOL" Twitter rant earned him national infamy.

Jones evidently has the support of at least one current Buckeye:

I would hit that retweet but they watching

Proving that he learned a thing or two despite not originally "going to Ohio State" to do so, Jones even went on to correct a grammatical faux pas from one of his original tweets in the rant:

@NCAA *their

Never change, Cardale.
