With spring games approaching this coming weekend across college football, many coaches have come up with ideas to make the intra-squad scrimmage about more than just bragging rights. Some coaches allow the winners to eat a gourmet meal and force the losers to eat scraps. In his first season as the head coach at Ohio State, Urban Meyer has decided to put community service on the line.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Meyer plans to have the losing team complete a community service cleanup project, either at Buckeye Grove or some other location. Buckeye Grove is an area where trees are planted to represent Ohio State’s all Americans.
Depending on how lazy and opposed to improving the community Meyer’s new players are, this may give them a little extra incentive to perform well on Saturday. If impressing the coaching staff doesn’t provide the players with enough motivation in a spring game, being able to relax while their teammates work may push them over the top.
