Rich Rodriguez Asks OU Bobcat To Try Out For U-M Defense

After seeing video of Ohio University's mascot, Rufus the Bobcat, making an open field tackle on Ohio State's Brutus Buckeye over the weekend, Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez has asked the big-headed furry mascot to try out for the Wolverine football team.

"If you saw our defense against UMass, you know we need help," Rodriguez said Monday at his weekly press conference.  "And that was best tackle against something wearing Scarlet and Grey that I've seen since I've been here."

Rodriguez also noted that if Rufus can kick a field goal over 18 yards, he will offer the mascot a full scholarship on the spot.

Rich Rod's interest was piqued when later that night, the bobcat was spotted masturbating in front of a cat shelter.
