Ohio governor discourages wearing pleated khakis before Michigan game

Friday November 27th, 2015

Ohio governor John Kasich is continuing his “Scarlet Letter Saturday” tradition for Ohio State’s annual contest with Michigan this year, discouraging his constituents from using the letter “M” until after the game. 

The proclamation has an added twist this year, taking a shot at new Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh’s sartorial choices by also asking Ohioans to stay away from pleated khakis, not only on Saturday, but on every other day as well.

Jim Harbaugh says his favorite Thanksgiving food is steak

The 9–2 Wolverines will host the 10–1 Buckeyes on Saturday with Michigan looking to end Ohio State’s three-year winning streak in the rivalry game.
