There aren't many rules to college life, but one of them is this: don't be the guy who rushes the field in the middle of the game.
Former caddie Anthony Wunder violated that rule, and now he faces a serious penalty.
Wunder, 21, is a fourth-year student at Ohio State who decided to rush the field during a game Saturday between the Buckeyes and the visiting Cincinnati Bearcats. Wunder didn't get far, and he ended up on the receiving end of a serious takedown courtesy of OSU assistant coach (and former linebacker) Anthony Schlegel:
Getting tackled in front of 100,000 fans is humiliating enough, but things have gotten decidedly worse for Wunder in the aftermath of the game. He is attending Ohio State as an Evans scholar, the recipient of a full scholarship from the Evans Scholars Foundation which hands out academic awards to former caddies. According to a Columbus Dispatch report, Wunder's scholarship has been revoked because of his on-field antics and he has been kicked out of the house reserved for Evans scholars.
A mechanical engineering major, Wunder was charged with criminal trespassing, a fourth-degree misdemeanor, and released on $79 bond. The crime is punishable by no more than 30 days in jail, though the potential loss of a full-ride scholarship probably looms as the larger sanction at the moment.
