Did You See This? Ohio State adds new tradition

Wisconsin has “Jump Around,” and now Ohio State has “Quick Cals.” Urban Meyer and Ohio State created the new Ohio Stadium pregame activity, which will debut prior to the season opener Sept. 1 against Miami (Ohio). Here’s how it works: 23 minutes before every home kickoff, in the south end zone, the players will do Quick Cals – think pregame exercises – and ask for student participation.

“We want to start a new tradition, to show the relationship between our student body, the best student body in America, and our football team,” Meyer says in the video.

Looks interesting. It’s Ohio State, so there’s no doubt this loyal fan base will accept a new tradition, much less one implemented by a two-time national champ like Meyer. Other than that, it’s hard to say much more about this until we see it for the first time next weekend.

Here’s another look at what you can expect to see this fall at Ohio Stadium:
