Ohio Bobcat Mascot Attacks Brutus the Buckeye, Gets Dismissed from the Program (Video)



If Ace Ventura: Pet Detective taught us anything, it’s that violence against mascots is hilarious! I did a lot of tweeting last year during the Big Ten Tournament last March, and people seemed to enjoy the idea of punching Goldy the Gopher in the head.

But sometimes it’s not a laughing matter, and people get hurt. This is not one of those times, but this situation is a little more serious than the term “mascot-on-mascot violence” might imply.

Before Ohio State absolutely pummeled and destroyed Ohio University 43-7 on Saturday, the Ohio Bobcat mascot pummeled an unsuspecting Brutus the Buckeye in the Ohio Stadium end zone.

If only the Bobcat players could tackle with such ferocity. I guess the Big Cat wasn’t exactly BUCKNUTS about Brutus, and the school isn’t exactly BUCKNUTS about the rogue action taken by their enemy combatant mascot.


Ohio University released this statement:

“We apologize to Ohio State University and its many loyal fans for the poor decision made by the Bobcat mascot in tackling the Buckeye mascot when Ohio State came onto the field during Saturday’s football game. The individual responsible for these actions has been banned from any further affiliation with Ohio Athletics. The department does not condone this behavior and apologizes for the negative effects that this had on an intercollegiate event between two proud institutions. This is not indicative of the quality partnership between the universities and reflected extremely poor judgment and sportsmanship.”

So here’s the hilarious video of what went down, courtesy of the Time News Feed and Scouting Ohio.com

  1. During my four years at Ohio University, not many were concerned about Ohio State–not many of us felt any competition from ‘that school up there’. It was an unstated fact the two schools were in different leagues, and who cared…for the Bobcat mascot to only have the ‘dream’ to attack Brutus is simply unreal. What a fool, and what a poor reflection on my alma mater. I was embarrassed watching that, dressed as a Buckeye for game day, sitting in a sports bar with a ton of Ohio State fans. Their reaction?? Not favorable, but more like ‘what a stupid thing to do…’ But I will say this: the 110 are still better than TBDBITL when it comes to rockin’ out!

  2. My relatives every time say that I am wasting my
    time here at web, but I know I am getting familiarity every day
    by reading thes pleasant articles or reviews.

  3. I’ve downloaded a few wordpress blog themes from other websites. They are in the zip file format. How do I apply them? Can I get a step by step guide?.

  4. Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Reding this post reminds me
    of my good old rookm mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this page to him. Pretty sure he will have
    a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not
    very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m
    not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or
    suggestions? Thanks
