Urban Meyer's Twitter Account Makes An Unfortunate Mistake

It is Michigan week. For Ohio State players and fans, that comes with a hard and fast rule on social media.

Any letter 'm's' in a word must be replaced by a Red 'x.'Even the official football Twitter account follows this code.

However, Urban Meyer--or whoever is actually running his Twitter account--forgot about this custom this afternoon. The account sent out a tweet with an untainted 'm' in it.

"Careers are made, Legends are Born!!!" the tweet reads.

As you can see by the responses to the tweet, Ohio State fans are correcting Meyer. All in good fun, however.

It is doubtful that Meyer ever actually uses "his" Twitter account, but if he's focused on a letter this week, it probably isn't 'm.' It's 'D' as in defense.

Ohio State's stop unit has been woeful much of the season, and struggled mightily against Maryland on Saturday. It is a major concern.

If the Buckeyes' 'D' doesn't play better, they can forget about a W against their archrivals.
