There’s no disputing that Ohio State and Michigan don’t like each other.

In fact, they LOATHE each other and would rather see the other vanish from the face of the Earth.

Hatfields vs. McCoys.

Capulets vs. Montagues.

North vs. South.

Dogs vs. Cats.

See where we’re going with this?

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any stranger, now this.

The two teams don’t face each other until the Saturday before Thanksgiving and already lines have been crossed and we’re not just talking state lines. We’re talking property lines.

As in the property line of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, whose wife Shelley found something that she didn’t want or expected in their front yard.

There was a small flag, sort of like the ones that the gas company leaves when they want to mark where the gas lines are. The problem was it had the Michigan logo on it. Can’t you hear Woody Hayes spinning in his grave?

Some Michigan fan a few weeks ago took it upon themselves to somehow sneak onto the Meyer property and place the unwanted gift there. Needless to say, when the flag was found, there were no smiles. There were probably some words that can’t be used here uttered by the Meyers and who can blame them.

This is not the first that Michigan has crossed the line. There was an incident that involved Michigan State and the Wolverines wanting to put stakes in their field in East Lansing. That did not set well with Spartan Nation.

Michigan fans… GROW THE HELL UP! This is NO longer funny. It’s one thing to be a rival. It’s another when you cross the line and this time, you didn’t just cross the line, you wiped it off the face of the Earth. There are some of us that are not laughing and if you think you’ve ticked off the fan base in Columbus, then there’s going to be major hell to pay when you go to Columbus later this month. What you thought was harmless fun isn’t. The person that did this better be thankful that the Meyers didn’t catch them or press charges. In other words, instead of wearing maize and blue, they could have been wearing jailhouse orange.

It’s annoying, Michigan fans. You’re acting like the animal that is your mascot. Greedy, gluttonous, wanting more than you can have. You’ve already committed two of the Seven Deadly Sins. If you thought people didn’t like you then, they are sure as hell going to hate you now. Back off! Planting that flag didn’t just cross a line, it wiped it off the face of the Earth. The antics are no longer funny and if punches are thrown in your direction, you deserve them. Find your filter, Michigan. The “Michigan Man” myth is dead. Stop acting like you run the place. You don’t and the other schools in the Big 10 would rather see Hell freeze over before that happens.

Victors Valiant? Hardly.

Cowards? Maybe.

When the Saturday before Thanksgiving comes and you’re in Columbus and some Ohio State fans decide to put flags in your yards in Ann Arbor, don’t say you weren’t warned. It’s called karma, fellas and it has really sharp teeth.
