The past few weeks, Ohio State's coaches and players have been trading places in practice, for a fun change of pace.
The experiment had mixed results, each extremely entertaining. You had Brian Hartline, who looks like he could still suit up and play today, and also Kevin Wilson, who might still be digging turf pellets out of his teeth.
We start with Alex Grinch:

Grinch is out there covering a ton of ground with the ball in the air, and those hips look good. Does he have any eligibility left?

I appreciate the hell out of Mike Weber chasing Tony Alford around with the stick, like he's got years of payback to hand out.

I could watch Kevin Wilson in pass pro all day. I also love how Rashod Berry just tossed him to the turf with no remorse.

I get a Yoda vibe from Larry Johnson. He's not going to show it when he doesn't have to, but when push comes to shove I bet the 66-year-old could still put an offensive tackle on his ass, somehow.

Ryan Day's looking good, but could he start over Tate Martell?

For the record, it looks like Brian Hartline could still play competitive football tomorrow and he looked damn good running routes at Ohio State's pro day last year.
But he's gotta hit the jug machine after than performance. 1,000 balls a day.

I'm always down to see a grown man get mossed, and they delivered. But I have to give props to Taver, they set him up to get juked out of his jock strap multiple times, and he hung tight.
Urban Meyer, Greg Schiano, Billy Davis and Greg Studrawa all avoided the challenge, which is a damn shame. I would have paid top dollar to see Meyer returning punts.
