Ohio State football traditions hotel check in day

The History Of Ohio State Football’s Strangest Tradition

One of the strangest traditions in college football will take place Monday night in Columbus as the Ohio State football team checks in for its stay at a local hotel during fall camp.

Why is this so weird? Because there will be dozens of media members there with TV cameras, still cameras, phones, and laptops to document every step they take.

How did camp check-in day become an annual phenomenon around Ohio State football?

Tony Gerdeman of BuckeyeHuddle.com joins host Tom Orr to discuss the history behind this very strange day, and how it turned into a big event that has lasted for decades.
