Ohio State football had their game vs. Maryland canceled due to the coronavirus but the Buckeyes managed to get a game in nonetheless.
Ohio State didn’t get a football game in this weekend but they did manage to get in a different sort of game.
The Buckeyes didn’t get to play Maryland on Saturday after it was canceled after eight Terps players tested positive for the coronavirus. With Ohio State unable to schedule an opponent to take their place, head coach Ryan Day came up with a fun idea to keep the competitive juices flowing.
Ohio State football breaks out a dodgeball game in wake of Maryland cancelation
A spirited dodgeball game took place between the offense and defenses on Friday as the Buckeyes got to get a good sweat going and compete while raising camaraderie and making a positive out of a negative situation.
Oh, you thought Ohio State football players were just gonna sit on the couch and watch Netflix all weekend? You know better than that.
Kudos to Day and the Ohio State football coaches for coming up with this idea, and it should be a weekly tradition to get some competition among the team to see if the offense or defense can hold bragging rights on the dodgeball court.
For what it’s worth, I want to be on the side with Justin Fields because he’s got the best arm in the nation and the athletic ability to dodge and dive out of the way of balls flying in his general vicinity.
On second thought, maybe Fields should just sit this one out and not risk getting hurt playing dodgeball?!
