J.K. Dobbins says there's a large 'separation' between Ohio State, Michigan
The rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan never ends. This week, one of the greatest rivalries in sports has spilled over into the NFL Scouting Combine.
Former Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins met with the media on Wednesday, talking about the upcoming combine, NFL Draft and he would bring to the league. But his time with the media wouldn’t be complete without a question or two about the Buckeyes’ recent dominance in the head-to-head series with Michigan.
Dobbins went 3-0 against Michigan during his time at Ohio State, as the Buckeyes have now won eight-straight contests against the program dubbed “That Team Up North.” The former running back says there’s a pretty big gap between the two programs right now.
“We’ve separated from Michigan by a long shot,” Dobbins said, according to Jon Ledyard of PewterReport.com.
Ohio State has won three-straight B1G titles and appeared in the College Football Playoff last season. Michigan, on the other hand, is still searching for its first division title since the conference split in 2011.
The Buckeyes have posted blowout victories in back-to-back seasons in the rivalry game, proving that the Wolverines still have a long way to go to catch Ohio State. So what Dobbins said at the combine wasn’t really all that surprising.
Perhaps the only shocking thing was that he used the word “Michigan” and not the term “That Team Up North.”
