Santa Claus, elves crash Ohio State practice

Shoutout to Santa.

The Ohio State Buckeyes were busy wrapping up their final practice Sunday morning before giving the players on the team a brief breather to go visit their families.

After getting some (admittedly short lived) time back home, the players will reconvene for a business trip to New Orleans where they'll face Alabama in one of the first two ever College Football Playoff semifinals.

Of course to get the players in the spirit of the holidays, Santa Claus and his elves (starring Anthony Schlegel and some other members of the Buckeye strength & conditioning team in supporting roles) crashed the final practice of the season. Urban Meyer's reaction is priceless:

Merry Christmas!

Cardale Jones and the bell, too. So great:
