Among the various things Harbaugh has demonstrated is consistency: it seems that the man can be counted on for at least three losses every year.
He has had three 3-loss seasons up in Ann Arbor so far and could well wind up with another one this year.
I know there has been a lot of talk in recent days about the seemingly increasing talent gap between Ohio State and TTUN.
But there’s another gap as well: what is considered a successful season. Many alums up north view Harbaugh as having done a fine job because he has put together a string of 10-3 seasons.
But, to put that in perspective, going back to the national championship season of 2002, Ohio State has had only three seasons with 3 or more losses.
What would be considered a down year in Columbus has become the benchmark of success in Ann Arbor.
So here’s to Jim “Trey” Harbaugh, who truly epitomizes what it means to be a “Michigan Man.”
