Yeah I'm well aware he planned it. But how does that make this any worse? He wanted to become a mascot and tackle Brutus. It isn't the first time Brutus has been tackled and won't be the last. That doesn't really make this any worse, in my opinion. He apparently has a Brutus complex, but it's funny more than anything else.
The only ones not entertained by this mostly seem to be (sensitive?) Buckeye fans that seem to grumble when ESPN says something bad about them, when Jim Tressel is accused of anything that makes him look less than perfect or (apparently) when Brutus is tackled. I think this is another case of Buckeye fans sometimes being a bit insecure. And hey, look at my screen name, I'm not a Brutus hater (hint)
