Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh had a couple of words after his No. 5 Wolverines knocked off the No. 2 Ohio Disclose Buckeyes 42-27 on Saturday:
The secure marked Harbaugh’s first against Ohio Disclose as head coach in six tries. Michigan hadn’t crushed its arch rival since 2011 and did so like minded once since 2003.
Harbaugh’s comments might per chance presumably per chance doubtlessly be viewed as a knock against Ohio Disclose head coach Ryan Day, who joined the perennial powerhouse Buckeyes in 2017 because the co-offensive coordinator below Metropolis Meyer sooner than being promoted to transfer coach two years later.
Day has long gone 30-4, and he’s led OSU to a pair of College Football Playoff appearances (one national title recreation berth). The Buckeyes couldn’t be headed to the postseason this yr, on the opposite hand, as their CFP hopes went up in smoke with the defeat.
Extra particularly, Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic posited that this modified into in reference to Day’s reported “hang 100 on them” commentary from final yr, which came after Harbaugh reportedly accused OSU of a solutions violation that caught the ire of the Buckeyes head coach:
It be particular that Wolverines gamers felt the comparable method about OSU in terms of the disrespect element, with edge-rusher Aidan Hutchinson offering this commentary:
OSU came 73 aspects short of hanging 100. Meanwhile, Hassan Haskins scored 5 touchdowns to manual a enormous Michigan offense.
On the opposite facet, Hutchinson had three sacks, and David Ojabo added one other because the pass plod disrupted the OSU offense.
Michigan will now head to the Mountainous Ten Championship Sport because the East division consultant. The Wolverines will play Wisconsin if the Badgers beat Minnesota on Saturday. If no longer, then this might per chance occasionally presumably per chance also be Michigan vs. Iowa.
Either method, recreation time is scheduled for Saturday at 8 p.m. ET from Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium.
