With a big game against intrastate rival Ohio State this weekend looming, people at the University of Cincinnati are taking football more seriously than ever.
If any student wears Ohio State gear to professor Steve Fuller's classes this week, he or she will be failed. That's the warning Fuller recently sent out on Twitter.
All right, as much as he might want to, he's not going to do that.
Fuller did, however, say that he would do something "humiliating" if the Buckeyes beat the Bearcats.
The Bearcats are 2-13 all-time against the Buckeyes. They have lost the past 10 meetings and haven't pulled out a victory in the series since 1897. Ohio State hasn't lost to a team from Ohio since 1921, for what it's worth.
If history means anything, this professor better make sure he has some Ohio State gear in his closet.
