What is Jim Harbaugh’s record as Michigan football coach vs. Ohio State? The former star quarterback is looking for his first win versus rival Bucky.
Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh was once a star quarterback at Ann Arbor and won several games, including a 2–0 finish as a starter against Ohio State. However, as a head coach, that hasn’t been the case against the Buckeyes.
In five attempts, Harbaugh lost against the Buckeyes, including a disaster in 2018, when Michigan entered the game as a top-5 team and went out 62-39. There was also a controversial double-overtime loss in 2016.
As is the case, Harbaugh has been the subject of jokes and ridicule for its inability to beat Ohio State, most notably from ESPN’s Paul Finebaum, who announced Friday that Harbaugh was unable to beat Ohio State.
If that doesn’t bother Harbaugh and his players, they should also read social media and see how they have been disrespected for their inability to beat their rivals, especially the former Ohio State linebacker. Bobby Carpenter’s Comments How he took the “easy route” from last year’s meeting that was canceled due to COVID.
Jim Harbaugh has a great chance to beat Ohio State this year
Since the start of the decade, Michigan has only had three victories and none since 2011. The Wolverines have not won in Columbus since 2000, when Drew Henson was quarterback, taking on Tom Brady, who went 4–1 against the Buckeyes. Was on the roster.
Nothing gets better than this. That’s all that matters to Jim Harbaugh and his soldiers right now. This win is not only for bragging rights and a berth in the Big Ten Championship Game, but also for a potential opportunity to play in the college football playoffs.
This year, Michigan has a team capable of carrying on that trend, led by defensive end Aidan Hutchinson and quarterback Cade McNamara. Against CJ Stroud and his wide receiver corps, Harbaugh will need all hands on deck to finally break through and secure a win that will give him the laugh he’s been looking for so desperately.
