At Ohio State, Michigan isn't to be called "Michigan," they're referred to as "The Team Up North."

As the school the Buckeyes' hate, the Wolverines are not to be referenced by name. Under Urban Meyer's leadership, anyone associated with the Ohio State football program getting caught saying "Michigan" is often punished with a penance of pushups. Michigan follows suit, calling Ohio State "Ohio." 

Today, former Buckeye guard Aaron Craft took a shot at Michigan, joking that they're not even the "real" team up north.
