A defensive line coach at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky allowed himself to be tased in front of his football team recently, all in the name of boosting morale.

Assuming that this wasn't some kind of elaborate hoax and that the electric shock was indeed sent hurling through this guy's body, it seems like an extremely odd way to inspire one's players.

The kids on the team cheered wildly though as the coach was brought to his knees, so maybe something positive ultimately came out of what appeared to be a completely unnecessary stunt.
