If you’ve been watching ESPN’s Ohio State All Access, you’ve seen Ohio State strength coach Mickey Marotti lead the “quick cals.” The quick precision and high intensity of the drill along with its emphasis on quick reactions is exciting to watch. However, that perception may be about to change as we witness the introduction of a new Ohio State tradition.
At this Saturday’s Ohio State Kickoff celebration, Coach Marotti announced that at approximately 23 minutes before the start of the game, the Ohio State players will join students in the South Stands for a run through of the quick cal. And although it may take a few games for this to truly catch on I can’t wait to see 100,000 people do this before the Michigan game.
The video below taken at the UFM Town Hall Meeting makes it look somewhat challenging but as you can see the in the second video by TheOzone.net, the students quickly caught on to the intensity of the drill.
This is going to be good.
