It's a tradition that was kicked off last summer, and by the looks of it, is only getting colder.

In August of 2014, Rutgers head football coach Kyle Flood surprised his players with an impromptu, post-practice night-club bash. The only difference? Instead of champagne, the players were the ones on ice.

The players returned to "Club Ice" this past weekend, complete with strobe lights, smoke machines and a DJ -- and glow sticks, of course. Dozens of ice baths served as dance floors, as players recovered in style after a late-evening practice. The only drinks around (besides melted ice)? Just some old-fashioned Gatorade.

"It's something our players really enjoy," Flood said after the extravaganza. "This year we had DJ Frankie Steel in there spinning it on the one and two. We had the spotlights and a lot of other stuff going on there. It was a lot of fun."

As long as nobody gets hurt, this seems like a fun way for the team to bond and have fun before the season gets going. The Scarlet Knights open the year against Norfolk State on Sep. 5.
