At the Urban Meyer Student Town Hall Meeting held today in the Union, Urban unveiled what he hopes to be a new tradition to add to the many football traditions here at Ohio State. The staff calls them "quick cals" (quick calisthenics) which they use during warmups for practices (and games) to make sure the team and coaches are high energy and ready to go. For home games starting this fall, after warming up, and before heading into the locker room for the final time before kickoff at home, the team will face the South Stands Student Section and together the players and the fans will do a set of "quick cals" to get the energy in the stadium and on the field up before kickoff. Please watch this video I have linked to understand what these are, and to watch Coach Mariotti teach a giant room full of students (and Brutus) how to properly perform them.
I watched the team do these during the open practice, and took part in them today. I think this could be a really cool tradition if the student body embraces it and at least halfway decently learns what to do. Coach Mariotti really got us fired up, and I think the whole stadium would just spark every time we would do it.
Apologies to whoever posted a link to the video in another comment, but I thought it deserved a full write up and post of its own.
