Urban Meyer and Company Bring the Juice in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

You may have seen the newest fad sweeping the internet: celebrities (and not-celebrities) dumping buckets of ice water on themselves in order to raise awareness of ALS. The cycle is complete by the performer calling somebody else out to take the challenge.

What is ALS? From ALS.org:

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

Urban Meyer demands his players bring the juice in everything they do. So when 2015 commit Joe Burrow called Urban to the plate, it's no surprise Urban dropped the mic:

They did it! Proud of you Urb and Shells. Looks like they nominated @kingjames and Chris Spielman! #icebucketchallenge

King James and Chris Spielman, eh? Not a bad shot to call, Urban.

And for the record, let it be known Dontre Wilson and Tyvis Powell (and the basketball team) are no fans of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis:
