Did you miss BTN Originals’ all-access look at the defending national champ Ohio State’s training camp? If so, catch encore presentations at 5:30 and 9 p.m. ET tonight on BTN.

Whether you watched it or not, I wanted to share a few of my favorite moments from the series’ first of two episodes. Speaking of which, the second episode will debut at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday.

After a great intro from J.K. Simmons, the show starts off with cameras at linebacker Joshua Perry residence. We saw Perry’s kitchen, which was a little messy, and couldn’t help but notice this pillow on his bed.

***

We then moved to quarterback Cardale Jones’ residence. He has some cool posters hanging from his wall.

***

Now, to Perry’s car, where the linebacker talks about he and Jones’ crush on fighter Ronda Rousey. Perry seems to think he’s on the inside track.

***

During a team meeting, one in which freshmen were paired with an upperclassman “big buddy,” Ohio State assistant strength coach Kenny Parker came up with these great nicknames for the vets:

***

At one point during drills in the indoor facility, Urban Meyer asks someone who the unfamiliar faces are watching practice, and this was his response after learning they are NFL scouts:

***

Ice baths made several appearances. While good for the body, they are no fun – not to mention very cold, something that caught Braxton Miller by surprise.

***

Not a bad shot to end the first episode, huh?

***

Other highlights:

Taylor Decker is riding shotgun in a car with a couple fellow offensive linemen, when he delivers this gem:

“This is the most excited I’ve been for a camp without being really excited, if that makes sense.”

***

Assistant Kerry Coombs is a riot (seriously, watch the episode to see his playful personality). He has a great interaction with Jalin Marshall, which is featured in the video at the top of the post.

***

After star running back Ezekiel Elliott completed a drill, and finished it emphatically, running back coach Tony Alford joked, “He didn’t take his medicine today!”
