Today was Student Appreciation Practice at Ohio State — students got the chance to come and see what the Buckeyes football team has to go through each and every day. It was a very eye-opening experience for some, particularly the famous mascot Brutus Buckeye. Brutus decided he was going to get in on some of the action and take a few snaps, but he found out quickly why he roams the sidelines on a regular basis –  he got absolutely leveled by linebacker David Perkins after catching a pass across the middle. Brutus managed to shake off the hit, but left practice shaken up shortly after. They did a practical joke at practice where Brutus caught a pass, but David Perkins hit him really hard. Knocked his head back. — Brandon Castel (@BCastOZone) April 6, 2013 Utter defeat for Brutus. #BuckeyeFootball instagram.com/p/XxQv32H47i/ — Dylan MacDowell (@dylanmacdowell) April 6, 2013 David Perkins on tackling Brutus in practice: “See ball, get ball.” — Jeff Svoboda (@JeffSvoboda) April 6, 2013 Highlight from OSU’s practice was Brutus Buckeye being decimated by David Perkins. Brutus left practice shorty thereafter. Seriously. — Kyle Rowland (@KyleRowland) April 6, 2013
