Rivalries can get heated and quite often, a fan’s hatred for another team will often hone in on the opposing team’s mascot, considering that it is often at the forefront of that team’s fan following.

A perfect example of a situation like this lies with the Ohio State Buckeyes, a passionate fan base that is headlined by its big-headed leader, Brutus the Buckeye.

Like many mascots, Brutus is an awkward looking character, featuring a gigantic grin that looks like it would match that of a defensive lineman’s wingspan.  His big eyes and enormous smile almost mock each and every opponent that gets soured by Ohio State’s continued success in major sports, especially football and basketball.


Brutus the Buckeye is one of the more well known and noticeable mascots in college sports

That’s why it would come as no surprise to see opposing rivals – specifically those in the Big Ten conference – to line up and enjoy a video of Brutus getting leveled during a recent Ohio State spring football practice.

You’re in luck, football fan, because such a video does exist – and here are two samples (via YouTube), each featuring a different angle of the big time tackle on the Ohio State mascot.
