Ohioans were urged to avoid the 13th letter of the alphabet and to refrain from wearing pleated khakis on Scarlet Letter Saturday in a procla*ation released by Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Lt. Gov. *ary Taylor.

The letter of the alphabet after L and before N was stricken from the resolution and the resulting press notice released Friday in connection with the rivalry football ga*e on Saturday between Ohio State University and “That School Up North.”

Kasich and Taylor hailed the unique styles of the great Ohio-born coaches involved in The Ga*e: Ji* Tressel’s sweater vest, Woody Hayes’ signature glasses and Barberton-born Bo Sche*bechler’s ti*eless hat.

But they took several shots at That School Up North’s first-year coach, Ji* Harbaugh, and his signature fashion look.

They urged Ohioans to avoid wearing pleated khakis like those that Harbaugh reportedly purchased at Wal-*art for $8 a pair.

Harbaugh’s style, they said, recalls “guys standing around, being very casual and witty on a front porch in a 1991 Dockers’ co**ercial, which offended Jerry Seinfeld in the episode The Phone *essage.”

“The dull, earthly gar*ent *ay be workplace appropriate for Jake fro* State Far*, but coaches sporting them in a ‘shirts vs. skins’ pickup ga*e should stick to the ‘shirts’ tea*,” Kasich and Taylor said in the resolution.

They declared a Scarlet Letter Saturday in 2013. Ohio State won that contest: 42-41 in That City Up North.
