Video: The Ball State staff steps on the scale for a chance at "the belt"


Like most staffs around the country, Ball State's staff is getting ready to get camp started, which means hunkering down in the cafeteria for a few weeks and ordering late night takeout / delivery during late night film sessions. Except things are probably going to go down a little differently this year in Muncie, IN.

Cardinal's strength coach David Feeley and the rest of the football staff decided to have an "anti-weight gain" competition to see who could be the most disciplined during the grind of preseason camp. The initial weigh in took place today, and an official weigh out will take place at the conclusion of camp on the 17th of August. The winner gets bragging rights and the right to wear the illustrious WWE (lookalike) belt.

Offensive line coach John Strollo stole the show by stripping all the way down to his birthday suit for the weigh in (thank goodness for that "Cops" inspired blur spot and crafty editing). Strollo is taking no prisoners.

Just for fun, if I had to put my money on one guy, it would be the coach with coaching roots at my alma mater (Defiance College); tight ends coach Pat Dougherty. Don't let me down Pat!
