Ohio State linebacker K'Vaughan Pope leaves field, sends angry tweet during gameOhio State linebacker K'Vaughan Pope was escorted to the locker room by a team official during the second quarter of the game against Akron on Saturday night following a heated exchange with coaches on the sideline.
The altercation reportedly was prompted when he was not substituted onto the field for a series.
In a pair of since-deleted tweets, Pope later wrote during the second quarter, “good lucc (sic) to my teammates” and “f-- ohio state," misspelling the obscenity.
The Big Ten Network, which was broadcasting the game, reported that Pope quit the team. He also threw his gloves into the stands in frustration before leaving the field, according to the telecast.
