COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Cardale Jones had seemingly already learned a hard lesson about how to handle social networks on Friday.

The freshman third-string Ohio State quarterback apparently received one extra reminder a day later about how to handle himself publicly following his post about "pointless" classes on Twitter.

Jones deleted his account after his comment made national headlines, but the program seemingly went one step further to make the expectations for its players clear by not dressing the freshman for Saturday's 63-38 win over Nebraska at Ohio Stadium. A school spokesman stopped short of calling the absence of Jones from the active roster against the Huskers a suspension, but he did confirm that it wasn't due to injury.

"Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL," Jones posted on Twitter on Friday. "We ain’t come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS.”

Jones hasn't appeared in a game yet for the Buckeyes.
