97.1 The Fan's Lori Schmidt has pulled some records from the Office of Vital Statistics at the Ohio Department of Health, and the results might shock you.

Since Urban Meyer was hired in 2011 until the end of the 24-game winning streak, 579 babies were born in the state of Ohio with the name, "Braxton."

According to Schmidt and the Office of Vital Statistics, there were only 183 babies named Braxton in the two year period preceding Urban's thunderous arrival in Columbus.

Before you scoff at the notion of a correlation, feel free to look up the numbers of teens named "Shaquille" in today's America.
