(COLUMBUS, Ohio) -- Was it good luck, or was it a lack of khakis that helped Ohio State win The Game?
Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed a resolution Friday that asked residents to avoid wearing the beige pants before Ohio State University faced their football nemesis, the University of Michigan, on the field Saturday.
The wacky khaki ban must've done something-- Ohio State crushed Michigan on Saturday, 42-13.
What do khakis have to do with Michigan? They're a favorite of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
"While the dull, earthly garment may be workplace appropriate for Jake from State Farm," read the resolution. "Coaches sporting them in a 'shirts vs. skins' pickup game should stick to the 'shirts' team."
The governor, and Republican presidential hopeful, tweeted a picture of the resolution and said, "Gov. @JohnKasich issues resolution for the 3rd annual Scarlet Letter Saturday. Beat Michigan! #SayNoToKhakis"
In 2013, the State of Ohio issued a similar proclaimation banning the use of the letter "M" during the annual Ohio State and Michigan game. The latest resolution is a continuation now banning khakis.
