On Thursday, we learned that members of the Ohio State football team were working on a dance routine for halftime of today's OSU basketball game against Wisconsin. The performance has come and gone, so let's see how things turned out:

Our thoughts:

  1. Does Ezekiel Elliott wear his crop-top exclusively now? Seems like a poor decision with the winter that we're having, but whatever works for him.
  2. We really appreciate that the players totally went for it. It looks like anyone who was hesitant about dancing in front of tens of thousands of fans stayed home.
  3. Aaron Parry: not the best rhythm, but the effort is there.

Overall, solid job by the Buckeyes. They're probably more likely to win another national championship on the gridiron than the dance floor, but they definitely brought it this afternoon.
