Brutus gets his bell rung by linebacker David Perkins.
Nobody said being a mascot was easy. You have to walk around in a hot, furry costume that smells like feet and cheese, wear an oversized head that could topple you at any second, and (worse yet) pantomime your every emotion. But on the bright side, you don't have to get the crap knocked out of you on the gridiron. Well, unless you're the Ohio State Mascot "Brutus," who made the bad mistake of jumping into practice during OSU's Student Appreciation Day. Enjoy.
