Watch behind-the-scenes video on the making of Brutus Buckeye!

It's normally good practice to steer clear of people who are nuts. But not in this case. The story of Ohio State University's beloved mascot, Brutus Buckeye, is the lively and first-ever-told account of Brutus' life, from his birth in 1965 on a sorority house lawn as a gigantic, papier-mâché head, to who he is today a less rotund and more sophisticated fabric version of his many former selves.

Brutus shares the inside tales of his parents, his birth, his name, his many travels, and his kidnappings. We learn that he is so much more than a rambunctious, high kicking mascot, zipping around the sidelines at Ohio State University's sporting events. Brutus Buckeye has become the heart of Buckeye fans here and around the world, symbolic of fun, joy, good deeds, and pride for one of the most well-known universities in the nation. Who knew?
