The Greater Cleveland Sports Commission estimates about 1.3 million people were downtown on Wednesday for the Cleveland Cavaliers parade celebrating their NBA championship. Among the participants in the parade was Ohio State's marching band, Athletic Director Gene Smith, basketball coach Thad Matta and football coach Urban Meyer. From all the postings on social media, it appears Meyer was having a great time.

It is well known Meyer is a big Cavaliers fan having grown up in Toledo and LeBron James has been on the sidelines for Buckeyes games multiple times, including the night they won the College Football Playoff National Championship. Seems only fair for Meyer to return the favor.
