Ryan Day understands the historic rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan will always have some level of trash talk attached to it even between coaches. Last year, Michigan was able to pull off the upset after years of falling short and with that win, Jim Harbaugh had some commentary on Day’s situation as the Buckeye’s head coach.

“Some people who were born on third base think they hit a triple, but they didn’t,” Harbaugh commented after beating the Buckeyes 42-27 in Ann Arbor last season.

During his Tuesday press conference, Day admitted there will be a time and place to address that chatter. For now, he’s staying focused on the task at hand.

 

For what it’s worth, Harbaugh did clarify his comment on Tuesday morning. He admitted it was directed at Day but also claimed it was a “counterpunch” to comments made by Ohio State’s head coach.

Since 2011, Ohio State has controlled this rivalry in a big way with 8 wins in the last 10 contests. The Game as a series is much more competitive with Michigan leading with 56 wins to Ohio State’s 51 wins.

Again this year both the Wolverines and Buckeyes are playing for a spot in the college football playoff with whoever losing likely not making it in without help.
