Lou Holtz Wears Blue Sweater to Ohio State, Urban Meyer Makes Him Switch to Red

It doesn't matter who you are—Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer does not want to see you wearing the color blue in Columbus.

Yes, even you, Lou Holtz.

On Saturday, the Buckeyes held Student Appreciation Day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Holtz, who brought Meyer on to join his staff at Notre Dame back in 1996, took part. He just apparently didn't get a memo.

Don't wear blue at Ohio State.

Anybody who lives in Columbus or has walked around the Ohio State campus knows you risk being shunned if you wear (any shade of) the colors of "that team up north." The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry is one of the best in all of sports, and it's one both sides take seriously—even when it's not football season.

Good thing Holtz has some history with Meyer and was allowed to change his top rather than being kicked out.

According to James Grega Jr. of Scout.com, however, some students were not as lucky as the former Fighting Irish head coach.

As history has shown (here and here), Meyer has absolutely zero tolerance for the color blue in Buckeye Nation. Don't even try to test him because it's not going to end well.

Ranking the Top 25 Freshmen Going into the 2016 College Football Season

One of the best parts about college football is the constant change. Each year, the game’s stars graduate or depart for the National Football League, and reserves who’ve been biding their time, as well as new talent, replace them on the front lines.

That’s why recruiting is so important. It’s the lifeblood of the game. When those stars depart, they must be replaced by freshmen who develop into standouts in their own right. This fall, we’ll see freshmen across the country emerge as stars.

Here’s a look at the top 25 college football freshmen for 2016. Players were rated on their reputation, talent and the impact they’re expected to make this fall, which is why redshirt freshmen were included. Agree or disagree? Let us know in the comments!
