Jim Harbaugh talked about how lucky Michigan was that a 2nd half fake punt by Ohio State didn’t go the Buckeyes’ way. Harbaugh admitted that Ohio State had the Woleveinres completely caught off guard per Stephen Means of Cleveland.com

This was talked about at the B1G Championship coaches Webinar on Sunday. Harbaugh emphasized just how lucky Michigan was.

“We got so lucky,” Harbaugh said during the Big Ten Championship Game Coaches Webinar on Sunday. “One of the fourth downs, they had a fake on, and they had us. I mean, they had us cold.”

One of the reasons that Harbaugh thought it didn’t work out was because the Ohio State long snapper snapped the ball to the wrong player. The player hiked the ball to the punter instead.

“I think their snapper snapped to the wrong guy,” Harbaugh said. “(He) snapped it to the punter instead of to the faker, but it would have been a huge gain. We got extremely lucky. They actually were going for it and would have pulled off a big fourth down conversion.”

Based on the video it looks like the ball was supposed to eventually get to TE Mitch Rossi. We’ll let you take a look for yourselves.
