Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer’s facial hair became the talk of social media earlier this week.
After five-star wide receiver recruit Jashawn Sheffield shared a photo of the Buckeyes head coach on a FaceTime call sporting his shaggy beard, conversation about Meyer’s facial hair bizarrely came the talk of the town.
Here’s a look at what started the discussion:

Eventually, Meyer’s wife, Shelley, began being bombarded with questions about her thoughts on Meyer’s beard and it’s safe to say she isn’t really a fan.
While speaking with Land of 10, Shelley said that Urban’s “grandpa” beard makes him look like an old man.
“And I told him that I think it makes him look older. He’s like, ‘Really?’ Well, yes! There’s gray in it. He looks like a grandpa now. And I’m just not a facial-hair girl.”
“But I really don’t know why and I keep telling him, ‘You’re so fuzzy. I don’t know what you’re doing. You’ve got to get rid of that.’ And that was not a good picture [on Twitter], not a good look with the little grandpa glasses on and the beard.
“I think I’m officially married to an old man, just looking at him. And he’s not that old . He’ll look totally different when he finally shaves it off. I do not know when that’s going to be, but I don’t expect this thing to stay around very long. I don’t think he wants to go into game week looking like this, but only he knows. It’s a mystery.”
So now the question begs: Will Urban Meyer shave his facial hair before the Buckeyes start the season against Indiana on Thursday, Aug. 31?
We’ll just have to wait and see, but something tell us Shelley will ultimately get her way.
