The Ohio State Buckeyes may have just unleashed — and then immediately lost — a new offensive weapon for their 2013 football team: their nut-headed mascot, Brutus.

In a spring practice, the mascot lines up at quarterback, shows off some nifty footwork to elude a sack, then promptly gets laid out by an OSU defender and fumbles the ball.

It’s tough to determine what is more worthy of critique — Brutus’ ball security or the defender who found it necessary and appropriate to go airborne to deliver a punishing hit on the team’s mascot.
