No profane smack talk for Ohio drivers, says the state's bureau of motor vehicles. What do you think of the ban?
Take heart, Michigan fans. Even if the Buckeyes hate you, they won't be able to say it on their license plates. According to a story in the Columbus Dispatch, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles has banned some Ohio drivers from expressing their distaste for the Wolverines in a way that is, well, distasteful. The department bans any language that is "profane, obscene, violent and hateful," according the the story. The Dispatch story says plates that are "among the forbidden: FMICHGN, HATEMI, KILBLU, KLMICH, UMBYTS, UMSUXS and UMH8ER." The ramp-up is already starting for Saturday's game between Michigan and Ohio State in Ann Arbor. Do you agree with Ohio's enforcement of the rules, or do you think it goes too far?
