Ohio Bobcat Mascot Banned for Bum Rushing Brutus Buckeye

It's Mascot 101:  Don't f*ck with your opponent's mascot during their team's entry/fight song.

Apparently the OU Bobcat didn't get the message.

As Ohio State's Brutus Buckeye led his team onto the field before the Tosu/OU game, the jackhole wearing the Bobcat costume thought this was the perfect time to bum rush Brutus and tackle him.  Bobcat guy then followed Brutus into the endzone where he jumped on his back as Tosu fans booed (yet, shockingly, didn't kill the bobcat).

OU officials released a statement today apologizing for the incident and banning the student in the Bobcat costume from any future association with the school's athletic department.

Seriously, dude, what exactly was your thought process on this one?

There's a lot more to this story than the press is covering. It involves Brutus and a covert affair with the Bobcat's wife. The Ohio Bobcat earlier in the day found text messages on his wife's phone and the ugly incident came to a head at the Ohio State endzone. In related news, Brutus will be the new spokesman for EXTENZE.

Interpol reports that Bucky Badger paid the Bobcat for the nefarious assault. As it turns out, Brutus loaned Bucky a large sum of nuts to pay off a gambling debt to the Minnesota Gopher; this scene was Bucky's attempt to liquidate his debts.

One of the most incredible things I've seen in a long time.

It couldn't have happened to a better mascot.

As a Michigan fan who spent time as an undergrad at Ohio, this was like Christmahanakwanza five months early. Wonderful! Glad to see someone putting that worthless nut in his place.
