During Saturday night’s win over Wisconsin, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was flagged for sideline interference. Meyer got a little too close for comfort and actually was smacked by a referee who was motioning to keep the clock moving.

At his weekly press conference on Monday, Meyer addressed the moment and made it very clear that he wants to get rid of the “damn rule.”
The Big Ten Network shared Meyer’s comments.

Hey, it could have been worse.
Luckily, Meyer was not injured and the penalty did not cost the Buckeyes a win.
