Strength coach Mickey Marotti was one of Urban Meyer's first hires at Ohio State, and for obvious reasons: the dude is a monster at his job. (For proof of this, look no further than Ohio State's fourth-quarter performances against Alabama and Oregon.)
In what's become a yearly tradition, and as a way to boot the players into next season's calendar, Marotti unleashes his famed "St. Valentine's Day Massacre" workout.
And while it no doubt could be the next nationwide fitness craze, a la P90X, the details of the workout are only known to OSU footballers and the strength sensei himself. However, we do have tweets from the team as testimony to the grueling nature of the workout.

Well, it doesn't look like anybody died, which, given the real St. Valentine's Day Massacre, is a headline in of itself.
