Urban Meyer has a new name on Saturday because of the Michigan-Ohio State game. 

He is now Urban Eyer, because he apparently cannot have an "M" as part of his name. 

Yes, that is the FOX Big Noon kickoff pre-game show x-ing out the M in Meyer's last name due to his history as the head coach of the Buckeyes.

 

The joke continued through halftime of their broadcast.

Ohio State and Michigan are such fierce rivals that neither school even refers to the other by its name ("the school up north") and that joke carried over to removing the M from the former head coach's name on the broadcast.

 

Meyer was the head coach at Ohio State from 2012 to 2018, compiling an 83-9 record and winning a National Championship.

He also owned a perfect 7-0 record against Michigan, with most of the games being won by a decisive margin.

The hatred runs deep in this rivalry, and still carries over for the former coach years later. And even when he is supposed to be impartial as part of the media and a broadcast partner.

 

Saturday's game is one of the biggest in the history of the rivalry as both teams entered with matching 11-0 records and are ranked No. 2 (Ohio State) and No. 3 (Michigan) in the country. A likely college playoff berth is on the line.
