There's nothing like a young man getting his first introduction to Mickey Marotti.

One of the other players posted a before and after pic from last year. Mariotti is better than I thought.

So you go from a black girl to a white man?

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

That is quite a work out program   Coach Mick is a miracle worker. 

"Say my name."

I hope you're not trying to imply that going from a black woman to a white man is an improvement or a mircale.

Doc's picture

Seriously?  Somebody needs a hug.

"Say my name."

ATXbucknut's picture

Not at all, Seth. But now that you point it out, I can see how that second sentence could be taken that way. I would edit if I could, but don't think I can once someone has replied to the original comment.

He pissed off Micky, and got the black slapped off.  As for the gender, Mick is known for making men.

Coincidence that it was a Texan that decided a black woman is the best negative "before" picture?
Though I am sure ATXB wasn't sitting there in a Klan hood giggling when he posted it.
And yes I understood the OPs point. I would have gone with a pic of Honey Boo Boo's mom myself.

No offense intended to anyone. I am from a mixed-race family, and this was in no way intended to be racial. Only funny. Apologies if anyone interpreted this the wrong way.

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

I don't know why anyone would be offended by it.

One of so few on here that makes me laugh with such superficial intentions. I love it.

The one on the left is an SEC defensive tackle.

That runs a 4.6.

Who cares if the woman/man is black/white? We all get the joke and there is no reason to bring that up because all it is going to do is stir up controversy. I think we can all take it as a joke and leave it as that.

ATXbucknut's picture

+1. Couldn't have said it better myself, XFACTOR.

unknownmusketeer's picture

Did you hear the joke about the turtle and Woody Hayes? Yea, some people can't recognize a joke even when it comes up and bites them in the ...

BuckeyeinSavannah's picture

My thoughts exactly. We need to stop over thinking everything and just enjoy a funny comment.

weimerad's picture

Does anyone know if Marotti's workout plans for these guys are publically available?

xFactor11's picture

I also would love to know this. Not because I am going to try it or anything crazy like that but because maybe by just looking at his workouts, I will somehow get in better shape.

weimerad's picture

I'm curious if Marotti implements any type of cross-fit training, where he has the players do like a 10 min nonstop session with 3-4 different exercises. 

Buckeyejason's picture

That's pretty much common practice in college athletics for many years. Cross fit didn't invent that.


Poison nuts's picture

Absolutely right. Cross fit borrowed from college & pro athletic training, not vise-versa..

From the details I remember hearing, his workouts are like ROCKY IV style... rolling around semi-truck wheels, moving bolders, something like that aling those lines

BammBamm is my dog, Riley is my 4 yr old daughter, and THE Ohio state Buckeyes complete the three most sacred loves I cherish

Buckeyejason's picture

I like that strongmen type's fun and challenging. Also beats the same old boring running or cardio machine.

I have been the victim of a crazed S&C coach in college... the first workouts as a freshman are the worst!
