Ohio University’s mascot Rufus the Bobcat decided to attack Ohio State’s Brutus the Buckeye as he ran on the field. His first attempt was thwarted when Brutus lowered a shoulder into him. He took him to the ground with the second attempt, a cheap-shot takedown from behind. Really? None of the cheerleaders were willing to go in and bail him out? Good thing Rufus didn’t take out the I-dotter. He would have had to transfer and leave the state. Ohio University issued an apology. The student who dressed up as Rufus has been banned from affiliation with Ohio University athletics. [UPDATE: The student who dressed up as Rufus isn’t even a student at Ohio U, and went out for the mascot gig just to take down Brutus the Buckeye.] [Bucknuts]
Not a great look.
Miles said he would “always be a Tiger” and “thanks for a great 11 years.”
Come and get your winners!
The art of having fun.
