Jim Harbaugh roasted Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith on Twitter with an epic troll.
The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan Wolverines have one of the best rivalries in college football. Despite the Buckeyes winning 11 of the past 12 games between the two bitter rivals, Michigan’s hiring of Jim Harbaugh as their head coach has thrown a ton of gasoline onto what was already a burning fire in their rivalry. On Tuesday afternoon, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith threw some shade at Harbaugh and his tactics.
Jim Harbaugh has never backed down from a fight. Smith might have fired the first shot, but Harbaugh responded with the equivalent of a nuke.
Harbaugh is the best thing to happen to the Ohio State and Michigan rivalry in quite some time. Urban Meyer and Harbaugh deeply care about their schools, which means that they take the rivalry as seriously as the fans. It shows on and off the field but they still share a mutual respect for each other. Safe to say that Harbaugh won’t be getting a Christmas card from Gene Smith anytime soon, though it’s likely Harbaugh won’t be sending any to him either.
