MI head coach Jim Harbaugh took a swipe at Urban Meyer when asked how he reacted to the retirement of his former Ohio State rival.

Throughout his career Meyer has been in the middle of situations that have left fans questioning the accountability surrounding bis programs, with controversy at both Ohio State and Florida.

"Urban Meyer's had a winning record". Meyer's Buckeyes had a 4-0 record against Harbaugh's Wolverines, and the MI coach admitted that "Ohio State is the only team" that's better than them.

It's safe to say Harbaugh and Meyer aren't going to get together for a backyard BBQ with close friends and family any time soon, especially after comments made on Tim Kawakami's podcast on Thursday. Really phenomenal record everywhere he's been.

United States overdose deaths post annual drop for first time in two decades
Drug overdose deaths within the U.S. have fallen for the first time since 1999, in accordance with preliminary legitimate info. There is also the possibility that the leveling off in opioid cases might still change significantly in the coming months.

Meyer never won fewer than 10 games during his seven-year stint at Ohio State and won the national title in the 2014 season, the first year of the playoff. "But also, controversy follows everywhere he's been". Over six seasons, 31 of his players were arrested, some on serious charges. Meyer insisted he filled the proper paperwork and reported the incident to the athletic department at the time, then keeping Smith on staff. What your record is within your conference.

"All you can be judged on is your record. I think you'll find that right now Ohio State is the only team that has a better record than us, has a better conference record than us, has the better overall head-to-head matchup with us". That's what we aspire to.

Needless to say, the November 30 game at Michigan Stadium between the Buckeyes and Wolverines added a little more spice. "What your record is with head-to-head matchups", Harbaugh said, as transcribed by Kevin Harrish of Eleven Warriors.
