The new Saturday tradition at Ohio Stadium
Last week, Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer released a video with strength coach Mickey Mariotti, in which they discussed the desire to start a new tradition on Saturdays.
Here's the video, in which they show the desired tradition. It's called the "Quick Cals";
If you watched the video to the end, you saw the exact drill that Meyer wants the student body to perform.
You also probably thought that it seemed a bit difficult to pick up on right away. Let's face it, it's not as easy as bouncing to "Seven Nation Army".
My immediate thought was that it would take a while for the student body to pick up on it and perfect it. When they do perfect it, it will look very cool. Seeing the fans and players do the same drill at the same time….yeah, I'm looking forward to that.
So, how will the students pick up on that so fast?
They practiced it on Sunday…..
Very cool. The students have it down.
Now let's see what it looks like at a quarter before Noon on Saturday afternoon with 105,000 people in the stands cheering for it….should be very interesting.
We'll have the video of the first official Quick Cals drill on Saturday.
