Ohio State kicker's name is misspelled by everyone including Ohio State

When you are a freshman in a program as revered and storied as the Ohio State Buckeyes, you probably just give thanks that you are there and part of such history.

But you’d probably like them to at least spell your name right.

Yes, even if you’re a kicker.

As seen in USA Today’s For The Win page, Ohio State freshman kicker Sean Nuernberger showed at the Buckeyes spring game that he’s ready to take the field and help the Buckeyes win some football games, nailing field goals of 36 and 42 yards. And what did he get for his thanks?

Neurnberger, Neumberger, hamburger, good burger, Burgermeister-Meisterburger  – everything but his correct name.

The worst part is, it was misspelled by both his own team’s equipment department on the back of his jersey, and by the Big Ten Network during the broadcast…all in different fashions.



Nuernberger is an Ohio State full-ride scholarship player, but hasn’t exactly knocked Urban Meyer’s socks off this spring. If he doesn’t put his foot to better use against walk-on Kyle Clinton, it’s not going to matter how he spells his name.
