Former Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Jim Knowles left Stillwater to take the same position at Ohio State just days after OSU played in the Big 12 Championship Game in early December.

The Cowboys went nearly two months without a defensive coordinator before announcing the hire of former Auburn defensive coordinator and Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason on Wednesday. The hiring was significant for a number of reasons and social media had thoughts on all of those reasons and more. Here is some of the best reactions from Twitter after OSU made Mason’s hire official.

Let’s work? Looks like we have a couple of Mike Boynton fans in the house! In all seriousness, it looks like Mason has plenty of support from the defenders. That is important because Knowles had those defenders' full support and it paid dividends for the Cowboys last season.
