Cardale Jones made Buckeyes fans everywhere shit their pants today by pretending he was leaving Ohio State. The quarterback used Twitter to announce his transfer to the Akron Zips. It was a fun few minutes for anyone with no stake in Ohio State’s football team.

In keeping with the gag, Jones changed his photo to the Akron Zips logo:

A few minutes later, he came clean. May Fools’ Day isn’t a thing, but that made it so much better.

On the other side of the coin, what a roller coaster of emotions for those Zips fans.
