You are Rufus Bobcat, and your team -- the Ohio Bobcats -- faces quite a big challenge. The Bobcats are in the Horseshoe taking on one of the best teams in the country in the Ohio State Buckeyes. It's not going to be easy to knock off the Buckeyes, and they need a spark.
What are you going to do, Rufus? How are you going to fire your team up?
You're going to tackle Brutus Buckeye, that's what!
Man, missing that first tackle and having your head come off while doing so is never a good omen, but at least Rufus didn't give up. Sure, he failed to bring Brutus down and had to be escorted away by security, but he might have done a better job tackling than any of the Bobcats actual players did during their 43-7 loss.
Unfortunately for Rufus -- well, the kid playing Rufus -- the school didn't enjoy his performance as much as I did.
