OSU players face off with coaches in hilarious punt catching drill

Ohio State football seems to have a little bit of time on their hands in advance of its Fiesta Bowl matchup with Clemson on New Year's Eve. And the Buckeyes used some of that extra downtime for some post-practice fun Friday afternoon.

Ohio State players and coaches/staff personnel went head-to-head in a punt-catching drill that saw big, lumbering linemen chasing after incoming punts. The results were mixed as you can see in the video above. Head coach Urban Meyer did not participate, but the Buckeyes' coaches, trainers, directors and other staff members had a strong showing en route to building a commanding 9-5 lead. But then came the "double or nothing" final round to decide the winner.

Redshirt freshman Kevin Feder secured the next punt while athletic facilities staffer J.R. Law couldn't corral his punt to cap an epic players' comeback win. 

There's some controversy for sure in the final outcome, but both sides came out of the end-of-practice drill with plenty of laughs.
