Urban Meyer may be gone from the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry, but Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh had some parting words for his rival head coach. "Really phenomenal record everywhere he's been", Harbaugh said on The Athletic's The TK Show. "Also, controversy follows everywhere he's been".
Jim Harbaugh is owning his public comments about Urban Meyer.
Meyer has a 187-32 career record, and that included an 83-9 record with Ohio State. Meyer insisted he filled the proper paperwork and reported the incident to the athletic department at the time, then keeping Smith on staff.
Four of those wins came during Harbaugh's time as head coach, including a 62-39 win last season.
Jim Harbaugh's swipe at Urban Meyer reminds us agin of what he's done best during his tenure at MI. "All you can be judged on is your record - what your record is overall, what your record is in your conference, and what your record is in head-to-head matchups with other teams that you play". MI has not won the Big Ten championship in its first four seasons under Harbaugh, who has an overall record of 38-14.

"Our goal, we have two".
"No context you should know about", Harbaugh, wearing a suit, tie and MI baseball cap, said. We have two: win multiple championships and run a first-class program. That's what we aspire to.
During Friday morning's portion of the Big Ten Media Days, Harbaugh was asked if there was a specific context for which he made the Meyer comments, and if he had any regrets about making them.
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.
