The mayor of Toledo may have just sparked the latest Michigan vs. Ohio State controversy

Jim Harbaugh and Urban Meyer may sit on opposite sides of the Buckeyes-Wolverines rivalry, but they happen to have quite a bit in common.

As just one example, both Harbaugh Meyer were born in Toledo, Ohio and in fact, they were born in the exact same hospital, just seven months apart.

Yesterday, at an event to raise some money for legal aid for those who can't afford it, Harbaugh spoke for a bit and later that night met with the mayor of Toledo, who presented the Wolverines coach with a key to the city.

Getting a key to the city is the ultimate goodwill gesture, so it's extremely interesting and worth noting that Urban Meyer - the head coach of the state of Ohio's most beloved team - who happens to be undefeated against "That Team Up North" including a 4-0 mark against Harbaugh - doesn't have a key to the city.

There's no way this doesn't add fuel to the Urban vs. Harbaugh and Wolverines vs. Buckeyes rivalry. Both fan bases are going to have a field day with this.
