Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer will not let NFL scouts wear blue when they visit

The next few months are some of the busiest times of the year for NFL scouts as the start of the college football season is their crunch time.

Hopefully they get the memo when they travel to Ohio State and visit the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

DON’T WEAR BLUE, or you’re not getting in.

That’s the request of Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer who will reportedly not allow NFL scouts to wear blue when they come to scout potential NFL prospects.

Per Fox Sports Ohio:

Ohio State, understandably, has been a hot spot for NFL scouts to visit this month.
Those scouts now know not to wear blue when they visit the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
At points last year, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer let it be known that visitors to Buckeyes practices were not to wear blue, presumably because that’s the primary color of Michigan, Ohio State’s biggest rival.
On the first day NFL scouts were allowed to observe Ohio State’s practice this month, at least two were wearing blue. And at some point during their time in Ohio State’s facility, Meyer’s message about what not to wear was passed along through Ohio State and staffers and even involved some players yelling to the scouts that blue was not welcome.
