Juice.

Ohio State made their debut Tuesday evening in the ESPN family of networks' answer to HBO's Hard Knocks in a series titled "ESPN All-Access: Ohio State Training Days". The show was about what you'd expect: somewhere between a propaganda film and a YouTube hype video. John Simon and Zach Boren were featured in talking heads prominently and there was plenty of shots of Braxton Miller and co. in action. A few of the highlights (plus the schedule for the remainder of the series):

  • Urban Meyer telling CJ Barnett "I like coaching you. Glad you're a Buckeye, bro."
  • The same drill Mick Marotti had students do during the Meet Urban Meyer event in the student union a few months back.

  • Urban Meyer saying "Be a great one, not an average one" essentially on repeat.
  • Big John Hankins explaining that "juice" was a new saying to refer to the level of energy needed to be displayed by the football team. It was also said. A lot.
  • Tom Herman dropping an "abso-smurfly" after making Kenny Guiton diagram a play on the fly.

Braxton Miller, looking mighty Braxton Miller-ish:

And of course, ice baths being cold, to say the least:
