WATCH: Brutus Buckeye tackled at OSU football practice

Ohio State mascot Brutus the Buckeye found out the hard way it's tougher on the football field, than on the sidelines.

This video was taken yesterday at the Ohio State University student appreciation day football game in Columbus yesterday. Brutus was playing quarterback, and faded back to pass. Well, he didn't see anybody open, so he takes off on a scramble. When wham Brutus gets brutally hit by a brutal linebacker.

Unlike Sloopy, Brutus couldn't hang onto the football. Those Buckeyes are tough Brutus popped right back up and stayed in the game.
