I don’t know what LeBron James said to the Ohio State Buckeyes before they took the field Saturday night, I just know he shouldn’t save that speech for a big Cavaliers game during the season.
LeBron is Mr. Ohio now, the king loved by all now that the prodigal son has returned.
To capitalize on that, Urban Meyer invited him to speak to the Ohio State football team before a nationally televised game Saturday against Virginia Tech that the Buckeyes were expected to win. From WSYX’s Clay Hall:
Except that things didn’t go as planned — the No. 8 Buckeyes lost to the unranked Hokies. Virginia Tech led early, Ohio State came back to tie the game 21-21, then the Hokies scored 14 fourth quarter points to get the win.
LeBron didn’t stick around for that part.
