Scarlet team shovels mulch for losing Ohio State spring game

The Ohio State Buckeyes broke their own record for largest spring game attendance back in April when they became the first team to play in front of more than 100,000 for their annual Scarlet/Grey Game. Every year, the loser of the game has to endure some kind of punishment, which just happened to be the scarlet team.

Backup quarterback Joe Burrow led the grey team to a win over the J.T. Barrett-led scarlet team, which meant the latter team would have some kind of work to do. Head coach Urban Meyer put them to work shoveling mulch outside The Shoe.

Who says that spring game doesn’t really matter? Although it is usually friendly competition, it looks like there could be an ongoing rivalry between the two teams and the grey team gets to brag for at least the next year.

The Buckeyes open the 2016 season on September 3 when they host Bowling Green. They hope to get off to a hot start and get back to the Big Ten Championship Game after falling short in 2015.
