Jones, Buckeyes fall for dummy prank

The first three starts of Cardale Jones' career were last year's Big Ten championship game, national semifinal and national championship game. Seemingly unfazed, Jones led the Buckeyes to big wins in all three.

Taking a stroll through Ohio State's facilities, however? That might make it harder for Jones to keep a cool head on his shoulders -- at least when someone is dressed up as a ProCombat Dummy, jumping out at him as he walks by.

Jones and some of his Buckeye teammates were caught off guard on Monday, and all of the reactions were caught on the video above. Ohio State fans hope Jones won't have the same reaction to a defensive lineman bearing down on him on the field.
