Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer just got another win over Michigan.

Nobody enjoyed beating Michigan football more than Urban Meyer.

In his seven seasons leading the Ohio State football team, Meyer never once lost to The School Up North. Meyer retired from coaching for the second time after winning the Rose Bowl with Dwayne Haskins in 2018. He has now embarked on a very successful career as a college football analyst for FOX, as well as a thriving restauranteur.

Last year, Meyer opened Urban Meyer’s Pint House in Columbus, Ohio, home of The Ohio State Buckeyes. Because of COVID-19, Meyer had to set some ground rules for his establishment’s re-opening on June 11 at 4:00 p.m. ET. Outlining the necessary protocol for his patrons made sense, but so did dunking all over the Michigan Wolverines. With Meyer, you’d expect nothing less.

While saying maintaining a six-foot distance apart from each table and having no more than 10 people at one table was totally expected, what wasn’t was saying “sanitation is our main priority” and showing the Michigan emblem as something that needed to be sanitized in the worst way possible. Well done, Coach.

Urban Meyer owns Michigan football again with his restaurant’s re-opening.

Though Meyer is not without his critics, we can never say he ever lost to Michigan while coaching at Ohio State. It has become very much a hammer vs. nail rivalry during Thanksgiving Weekend. Whoever is coaching Ohio State (Meyer, Ryan Day, whoever) becomes Thor and drops Mjolnir down on those poor Wolverines’ heads every Saturday after Thanksgiving at noon.

For a bar/restaurant created for the sole purpose of championing Ohio State football and having a good time, this is what you’d expect. Frankly, anything less would mean the Columbus pint house wasn’t trying hard enough. Your team is on top of the Big Ten football world and you must assert your dominance at every possible opportunity. What’s going to happen when it’s someone else?

So if you go to Urban Meyer’s Pint House in Columbus, Ohio, make sure you don’t bring a party of more than 10 to enjoy some brews and some grub. Make sure your table is a full two yards apart from adjacent ones. And if you wear maize and blue or rock an M on your chest, be prepared to be sprayed with some Lysol. Aren’t college football rivalries the best?

Meyer can say he beat Michigan football yet again by re-opening his Columbus restaurant.
