Another day, another city name change brought about by the College Football Playoff.
After Oregon, Ohio, realized over the weekend that it needed to change its name -- the No. 2 Oregon Ducks will face the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes on Jan. 12 -- Urbana, Ohio, has followed suit.
Urban residents will also gather at a city sign Thursday morning for a brief ceremony, according to the Dayton Daily News.
Larry Lokai, a retired Urbana city council member and a fan who attends games dressed as Buckeyeman, will conveniently block the “a” in the city’s name for a few photographs and other festivities.
Meyer himself quickly caught wind of the name change. During his Tuesday press conference in Columbus, he responded to the news as such:
“You’re kidding,” he said. “Wow.”
