The 2018 Ohio State football team is still practicing on Olentangy River Road this week despite the ongoing investigation of head coach Urban Meyer.
The athletics department let reporters in for a few minutes to see on Tuesday and even allowed video to remove any doubt.
A look at what the Buckeyes were up to can be seen above.
Ryan Day is serving as interim head coach while Meyer is on paid administrative leave.
The school is investigating whether how Meyer handled allegations assistant coach Zach Smith abused his wife in 2015.
Smith was fired on July 23 after being charged with criminal trespassing and being served with a civil protection order.
He released a statement Friday apologizing for how he handled questions the day after Smith was fired but also stating he followed all protocols regarding the allegations in 2015.
