Ohio State Coach Kerry Coombs Blasts Kicker for Getting Water While Stretching

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterMarch 8, 2013

According to a hilarious video making the Internet rounds, stretching exercises were just too strenuous for one Ohio State kicker. 

Lost Letterman spotted this video originally posted by Eleven Warriors, and it features cornerbacks coach and special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs glossing one of his kickers with a "Sunshine."

It's all well warranted, because apparently one player was parched during some stretching. If that weren't ridiculous enough of a statement, this all goes down at the first practice of spring. 

Kickers continue to be the bane of most football fans. Of course, I couldn't ever kick a ball more than 10 yards, but that hardly means I find their necessity on the football field any less ridiculous. 

We applaud Coombs for both blasting a kicker for his outrageous need to quench his thirst and for also giving us one of the best lines of the year. 

"What do you need water for, Sunshine?! We’re stretching! And you’re a kicker! Let's go!... Are you tired from stretching?"

That particular kicker should now expect to be labeled "Sunshine" for the rest of the season (if not his entire Buckeye career). He should probably steer clear of getting sips of water during kicking drills as well. 

If necessary, he may consider getting a flask to sate his incessant thirst in secret. Funny, you would have thought a kicker would have gone through these leg drills fairly easily. 

As for the rest of you, drink water in front of Coombs at your own peril.
