BLUE BAN

It wouldn’t be BYU-Utah week without some good enmity stories, and few had more enmity toward BYU than Urban Meyer.

Who could forget his “Team Down South” routine?

But nowadays Meyer spends his time calling Michigan “That Team Up North.” Reports say he has been stopping NFL scouts and other visitors from wearing blue at Ohio State’s practices.

Offenders are furnished appropriate (i.e. Ohio State) shirts.

Which is fine. It’s his kingdom.

Here's hoping he never ends up in a hospital where the nurses are afraid to call out “Code Blue!”

UP NEXT: MAX-IMIZED EFFORT
