As if Ohio State fans don't strangely hate ESPN enough, one of their former head football coaches is seemingly fueling it indirectly.

Some Buckeyes fans are boycotting "College GameDay" for this week's Penn State-Ohio State tilt and the movement is apparently gaining steam with Urban Meyer and the FOX crew coming to Columbus.

The coach who helped deliver Ohio State its most recent National Championship in 2014 will be a part of the FOX pregame team's road trip out of their Los Angeles studios.

Some Buckeye supporters seemingly believe ESPN has an anti-Ohio State bias, with others also saying the network shows strong favoritism toward the SEC.

This week's game airs at noon on FOX, begging some to question why College GameDay is going to Columbus in the first place. Isn't GameDay reserved for the primetime matchups? Seems like ESPN is doing something they don't need to do here.

It's also tough to call College GameDay biased when its crew features both Desmond Howard and Kirk Herbstreit, fixtures of Michigan and Ohio State, respectively. Let's not forget ESPN's CFP power rankings also had OSU in the No. 1 spot before LSU defeated Alabama.

Buckeye fans might want to revisit their beef with the Worldwide Leader in Sports.
