REPORT: Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh & Ohio State’s Ryan Day Got Heated During Conference Call With Big Ten Coaches
If you didn’t already have October 24th circled on your schedule, you’re going to want to get on that right away.
According to reports around the internet (including this one from FootballScoop), during a conference call with Big Ten coaches, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day was speaking when Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh interrupted him and accused the Buckeyes of breaking rules.
Specifically, Harbaugh was referring to a photo circulation on social media that showed Ohio State assistant Al Washington on the field with his team’s linebackers. Big Ten rules don’t allow coaches to conduct any on-field drills or instruction until Friday.
To no one’s surprise, Day didn’t take kindly to Harbaugh’s rant, telling the Wolverines head coach, “How about I worry about my team and you worry about yours?”
Reports also indicate that Day later told his players in a meeting that the Big Ten better introduce a mercy rule this year, because his team is going to “hang 100” on Michigan when they meet in October.
The Buckeyes have won their last eight games against the Wolverines, and Harbaugh is 0-5 against his conference rivals.
Get your popcorn ready. This year’s edition of The Game should be a good one.
