Jim Harbaugh was asked “who’s got it better than us?” and fans of chief rival Ohio State answered emphatically:
The Buckeyes, who have defeated Michigan in 11 of the last 12 meetings, including a 42-13 thumping in Harbaugh’s inaugural season, start the season as the media favorite to win the Big Ten. The Wolverines are the preferred choice of the gamblers, however, with more total wagers on the Wolverines to win that national title than any other team.
Coach Harbaugh, when your school has lost 14 of its last 16 matchups with chief rivals Ohio state and Michigan state, has not won a conference title since the first term of George W, and is barely over .500 overall since I was in middle school, “who’s got it better than us?” is rhetorical. And not in the way you may think..
