Jim Harbaugh must be surrounding by a bunch of sunlight, because he is throwing some shade around these days.
The Michigan Wolverines head coach provided some interesting commentary on retired Ohio State coach Urban Meyer when he appeared on Tim Kawakami’s podcast on the The Athletic.
He first offered praise fro Meyer, but would quickly switch it up and stated that “controversy” has followed Meyer everywhere he’s gone.
“Urban Meyer’s had a winning record. A really phenomenal record everywhere he’s been,” Harbaugh said. “But also, controversy follows everywhere he’s been.”
Michigan is 0-4 against Ohio State since Harbaugh arrived. Meyer never lost to the Wolverines in the seven years he led the Buckeyes’ program.
“All you can be judged on is your record. What your record is overall. What your record is within your conference. What your record is with head-to-head matchups,” Harbaugh added. “I think you’ll find Ohio State is the only team with a better record, a better conference record than us (since I’ve been there) and has a better head-to-head matchup with us.”
Shelley Meyer got around to those comments and offered a simple one-word response.
“Wow,” she said.
Ohio State and Michigan are set to play on November 30th.
