Georgia has taken a page out of Ohio State’s book ahead of its College Football Playoff meeting with Michigan.

Signs around the Athens campus have replaced the ‘M’ in words with a red X. Signs for the Ramsey Student Center and Zell B. Miller Learning Center are among the altered signs. An Instagram post from a fan group called The University of Georgia Spike Squad documented the changes.

The Spike Squad explained the move in a statement to The Columbus Dispatch.

“We came up with the idea to do this after the SEC Championship and a lot of us were still hung on what happened with the loss,” The University of Georgia Spike Squad said in a statement provided to The Dispatch. “So we decided the best way to move on was to focus on Michigan and we thought it would be cool if we changed out the M’s on campus to X’s like Ohio State does.”

The group added that it reached out to The Block O (the OSU student section) “to see if we could do this without stepping on any toes because we understand this is a big tradition,” the group added.

“So once we got the ok we started changing M’s to X’s,” the group said. “We’ve gotten mostly positive feedback from UGA students and OSU students and it is fun having OSU backing us. UGA and OSU have never really had a mutual enemy until now and it’s fun to build a relationship through it.”
