Whether you watch the football game on TV or in person, when you catch the Ohio State Buckeyes, you'll notice the mascot jumping around. Brutus Buckeye has become just as much a part of the culture of Ohio State athletics as the band has.
But did you know how Brutus came to be? Did you know the mascot was created out of papier-mache? This was back in 1965 and the co-creator of this mascot, was Sally Lanyon!
Sally shares the whole story with us today behind the history of Brutus Buckeye! What an incredible history lesson that shows a lot about the history of Ohio State, especially their Football program.
Today, Sally is the creator and writer for The Brutus Blog (www.thebrutusblog.com) and she also helped write "The Autobiography of Brutus Buckeye" which you can find here: https://thebrutusblog.com/book/
What an honor it is to hear from her today, and you don't even have to be an Ohio State fan to appreciate a story like this one. If you enjoy history, culture, and fun stories, then you need to tune into this one today!
