Urban Meyer to temporarily lift ‘Blue Ban’ at Ohio State

If there is one thing you should avoid doing as a supporter or player for the Ohio State Buckeyes, it is to wear the blue of the hated rival Michigan Wolverines. However, that is set to change next week.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer is set to temporarily lift the unofficial ban at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Meyer and company will be hosting  “Patriot Week” in honor of Memorial Day.

The players will be wearing red, white and blue while learning about the democratic system and importance of voting.

“That’s going to be what we call a Memorial Day workout,” Meyer said, via The Dispatch. “The players are going to be wearing red, white and blue, and we’ll have some fun with it. They’ll also take a test on what they’ve learned the previous four days, and before they leave on Friday for the holiday weekend, they’ve got to pass that test.”

See, maybe there is a chance that everyone can get along.
