Ohio State is preparing to take on Notre Dame in one of the most anticipated non-CFP bowl games of the postseason, and all of that focusing on one team can give coaches a headache.

Another thing that can give coaches a headache is when a kicker fires a ball at his head at point blank range, which is what happened to Buckeyes offensive coordinator Ed Warinner at practice on Wednesday in a video shared by quarterback Cardale Jones.

That looks like it hurt a lot, but Warinner has been playing and coaching football since 1979 so he should really know better than to walk in front of a kicker in the middle of an attempt.

The tweet also led to wonderful exchange in Jones’s mentions, with a follower questioning his knowledge of his Ohio State teammates, and kicker Sean Nuernberger chiming in.
