Not a bad way to spend a lazy Saturday in June.

For the third consecutive year, the Ohio State football program put on a successful women's camp.

When Urban Meyer came to Columbus in 2011, one of his signature touches for the football offseason was to run a one day camp catered to female Ohio State fans and intended to make the program more accessible to women. That event, the Ohio State Football Women's Clinic, is now in its third year after successful ventures in 2012 and 2013 raised oodles of money for the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.

On Saturday morning, 800 ladies came to the Woody Hayes Athletic Facility to take part in the 2014 clinic. They got to try some neat things along the way, including but not limited to: candid photos with coaches and players, running back drills, mass demonstration of defensive technique, and a shoe toss. By the looks of it, attendees had a blast.

 Something tells me the women's clinic is going to become a permanent summer fixture.

This is a cool thing they do. My wife went this year.  I guess I was under the impression it would be a teaching basics of football to help her understand better but was mistaken. I figured if anyone can give you the 101 it's this group. They went over the spread attack which is cool but above her head at this point.  Oh well, she still had fun and got her pic with Urbz. Did Spielman do a 101 type thing a number of years ago?

I was at the state track meet. The only person's voice I could recognize coming from the practice field was surprisingly Coach Combs.

Are you sure you don't mean unsurprisingly? If Kerry Coombs ever worked at a lighthouse, he could use his own voice as a foghorn.

Ceci n'est pas une signature.

I was being facetious.

Awesome - just a win-win all around.

My hats off to all those involved, and especially to the Buckeye ladies who attended.

The OSU Women's Clinic benefits the Urban and Shelley Meyer Cancer Fund at the James, as does the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer. This was another great clinic put on by OSU's great coaching staff - thanks to all involved including all coaches, sponsors, student-athletes, and attendees!

So it doesn't have anything to do with the Spielman foundation for cancer?

It's two different funds at the James.  Here's the link, basically on the same page.  They advertise together a lot.

Anyone else contemplating a "Bosom Buddies" "Mrs Doubtfire" type rouse to participate next year?

M*ch*g*n attempted the same event, however, with a slightly different spin. Brady and the "Women of M" scheduled an outing at the Ann Arbor Krispy Kreme...
