Apologies if this has been posted (I did look)


Interesting story.  The OU student became the Bobcat (Rufus) for the sole purpose of attacking Brutus. He actually withdrew from school 2 days before the game/attack and threw his bobcat costume in a room in the arena on OU's campus and left. He is now a tugboat captain.  Maybe its because I didn't live in Columbus, but I barely remember this and didn't think it was a big deal (just odd)   In any event, a pretty good diversion as we wait for game day!
