Gregory Shamus/Getty Images(COLUMBUS, Ohio) -- Was it good luck, or was it a lack of khakis that helped Ohio State win The Game?
Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed a resolution Friday that asked residents to avoid wearing the beige pants before Ohio State University faced their football nemesis, the University of Michigan, on the field Saturday.
The wacky khaki ban must've done something-- Ohio State crushed Michigan on Saturday, 42-13.
What do khakis have to do with Michigan? They're a favorite of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
"While the dull, earthly garment may be workplace appropriate for Jake from State Farm," read the resolution. "Coaches sporting them in a 'shirts vs. skins' pickup game should stick to the 'shirts' team."
The governor, and Republican presidential hopeful, tweeted a picture of the resolution and said, "Gov. @JohnKasich issues resolution for the 3rd annual Scarlet Letter Saturday. Beat Michigan! #SayNoToKhakis"

A video was released Thursday shows the altercation starting as a verbal argument between two people and then showing the man identified as Okafor punching the other.
Officer James Kenneally said the participants were gone by the time officers arrived at the scene and nobody was arrested or charged.
The 76ers released a statement on Thursday saying they were working to gather additional information on the incident.
An NBA spokesperson said the league was also looking into the matter, according to ESPN.

Before the game, Farve was also presented with a key to the city.
"I never dreamed of the unveiling of my jersey. I never dreamed of the Hall of Fame. Granted, that's awesome. But I dreamed of playing. Very few people can probably say this: The dreams that I had as a kid, mine have come true and then some," Farve said at a luncheon before the events.
It was Favre's first time in Lambeau Field since 2010, his final NFL season with the Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN.
Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(CLEVELAND) — The Cleveland Browns’ Johnny Manziel has just been demoted.
Once the starting quarterback, the Browns downgraded Manziel to third string for Monday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, an NFL source confirmed to ESPN.
According to the league source, Manziel was removed from his starting position after lying to Browns coach Mike Pettine about a video that allegedly shows Manziel partying in Austin, Texas, during a bye week.
Pettine has declined to comment on the details of his meeting with Manziel, but hinted at a breakdown in trust with the player.
“When you have a great opportunity in front of you, it is important that you demonstrate that you can handle the responsibility that comes with it,” Pettine said, according to ESPN. “I can’t emphasize enough the importance of the trust and the accountability piece. This is where we had an obvious shortcoming.”
Josh McCown will replace Manziel as the Browns’ new starter.

"The doctor was very optimistic about a quick recovery," coach Pete Carroll said. "And that could mean within three or four weeks or something like that, there's a chance. So we'll see how that all works out."
Carroll also said that it is possible that Lynch could miss the remainder of the season.
"I think you'd have to say that there's a chance, yeah," he said. "But we don't expect that to happen."
Lynch had the surgery in Philadelphia and will remain on the East Coast to begin recovery, Carroll added.
