As if the rivalry wasn't heated enough, Harbaugh just threw some gasoline on the fire and maybe that'll poke the Ohio State bear even more. When The Athletic's Tim Kawakami asked him about Meyer, he applauded his success while still taking a swipe at him. Brace yourself. Or don't.
Meyer, who owned an impressive 83-9 overall record over seven seasons with the Buckeyes, including three Big Ten titles and a national championship, went a ideal 7-0 against the Wolverines. Meyer beat Harbaugh four times in four meetings during his tenure at Ohio State. Patterson excelled in his first season with the Wolverines, throwing 22 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions en route to leading the team to a 10-3 record.
Hours after Harbaugh took a swipe at former Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer's legacy, Ohio State defensive end Jonathon Cooper played along. "I am clearly advocating for rights that college football players have not had". The Big Ten without Meyer has a controversy vacuum, and so in looking to fill it, we're creating a hubbub over a coach acknowledging Meyer's own controversial past.
" I Stand By The Comments I Made About Urban Meyer And I Will Not Apologize For Them Because It's The Truth, Conterversey Followed Urban Meyer Around Where Ever He Went., So This Is Not a Bombshell To Any Of You Here". Really phenomenal everywhere he's been. And Yes Meyer Has Had Issues Of The Field At Florida And Ohio State.
Sure, Harbaugh didn't need to say what he did. He knows the Buckeyes don't like him and he returns the same feelings. Now Let's Go Back To The Horseshoe One Year Ago. We will see how much it continues to evolve in the coming days, whether it's fair or not. Strictly speaking, yes, but the coach would have served himself better by doing anything other than playing dumb.
"As far as - sometimes divorce is a good thing in life in general, so for players to take that approach and have an opportunity to move on, as long as we're all going by the same rules, I'm OK with whatever we have in place and OK with the current rules that we have in place".
MI coach Jim Harbaugh took a dig Thursday at former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who retired last season in the wake of a scandal involving domestic violence allegations against a former assistant.
