'Stone Cold' Steve Austin Praises Ohio State Strength Coach For Taking Down Fan Who Ran Onto The Field

Perhaps the most entertaining moment of Ohio State's 50-28 shellacking of Cincinnati on Saturday night came when a fan ran onto the field. The fan was promptly met by Buckeyes strength coach Anthony Schlegel, who grabbed the fan and wrestled him to the ground.

Today, Schlegel's tackle received a ton of praise from someone who knows a thing or two about beating up on people: former professional wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

Austin is a former football player, so he knows a good tackle when he sees one. Even if he didn't play football, Austin was known for being a tough guy during his pro wrestling career, so when the Texas Rattlesnake compliments you for wrestling someone to the ground, you know you've done a good job.
