Buckeyes Hold First California Practice, Then Hit Disneyland

Ohio State football Disneyland

The Ohio State football team is in California for a business trip, but just like any good work trip, they found a little time for fun, too.

The team held its first practice in L.A. Thursday morning at the home of the Chargers.

It was the team’s first workout together since December 20, and Urban Meyer told reporters that there were too many dropped passes.

That’s not unexpected after a layoff, a Christmas break, and a cross-country flight.

Meyer added that he expected things to look better on Friday as the Buckeyes continued their preparations for the Rose Bowl.

Parts of their upcoming practices will be open to the media, so expect a more detailed report later in the week.

For now, though, you can see some clips from that initial practice below.

After work ended for the day, the Buckeyes continued their California adventure at Disneyland.

It’s a traditional “welcome” event hosted by the Rose Bowl committee for both teams.

Washington and OSU players both spent the afternoon having fun at the park in Anaheim.

The Bucks, including head coach Urban Meyer, rode the Incredicoaster, among other rides.

Unsurprisingly, Meyer rode next to senior wide receiver Parris Campbell, one of the players who he is closest to on this year’s team.

Somewhat surprising, Meyer seemed to genuinely enjoy it.

Cornerback Damon Arnette headed to Space Mountain

Safety Jordan Fuller has no problem crushing guys in run support, but roller coasters are another matter.

  1. I hope Mr. Arnette did not run into Ric Flair. Creepy.

    1. A classic Nature Boy line that is seldom referenced. Well done.
