Ohio State fans have a few traditions regarding the Buckeyes’ rivalry against Michigan. One is the “Mirror Lake Jump”. Another is the removal of all “M’s” on campus. But the most important might be the refusal to actually utter the word “Michigan” – players, coaches and fans usually refer to the Wolverines as “That Team Up North.” Yesterday, head coach Urban Meyer accidentally slipped up and referred to his main rival by name. His wife is having a little fun with it today.

Kudos to Shelley Meyer for sticking to the script and removing all of the M’s from her tweet as well.
While I highly doubt that Meyer actually had his mouth washed out with soap, it’s great to see his wife taking the rivalry as seriously as the fans do. A victory this Saturday will probably excuse Urban from his faux pas.
