Although Joe Burrow is known for winning a national championship with the LSU Tigers, the quarterback still considers himself an Ohio State Buckeye.
It only took Joe Burrow two seasons in the NFL to compete in the Super Bowl. Burrow did just that with the Cincinnati Bengals, a team that did not win a playoff game for over 30 years before he got the chance. It is not necessarily a shock, his time with the LSU Tigers taken into account, where he won the national championship in his historic senior season.
Although Burrow is known for his time wearing an LSU uniform, he told the media on Thursday that he still considers himself the Ohio State Buckeye, the college team he spent his first three years on. The video below comes from Adam King from 10TV.
Despite success at LSU, Joe Burrow still considers himself a Buckeye
Burrow was recruited by Ohio State way back in 2014 by then-Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman. The four-star recruit, according to 247 Sports, did not get the starting job in his three years at Columbus. In 10 appearances, Burrow 29-of-39 passing attempts in 287 yards and two touchdowns.
After that time, Burrow transitioned to LSU and subsequently drifted into superstar status, specifically in the 2019 season. Burrow throwing at 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns helped the Tigers go undefeated throughout the season, culminating in a 42-25 win over Trevor Lawrence and Clemson. That, and he won the Heisman Trophy for his efforts.
Now, just like in his time with LSU, Burrow is competing for football’s biggest prize in his second year and has the chance to make history in the process. Even with the success he has had with LSU and Cincinnati, Burrow let everyone know he is still a Buckeye.
Burrow and the Bengals host the Los Angeles Rams in February. 13 kl. 18:30 ET, live from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
