Jim Harbaugh takes a swipe at Urban Meyer

Urban Meyer went out 7-0 against Michigan and 4-0 against Jim Harbaugh in his Ohio State coaching career, but a few months into Meyer's retirement, Harbaugh is still swinging at the coach he never beat.

Harbaugh took a jab at the retired Buckeye head coach on Tim Kawakami's podcast with The Athletic, complimenting Meyer's record as a coach but criticizing him for the "controversy" that follows him.

"Urban Meyer's had a winning record. A really phenomenal record everywhere he's been," Harbaugh said. "But also, controversy follows everywhere he's been."

In terms of on-field production, Harbaugh did concede that as long as he's been at Michigan, his Wolverines have been no better than second best.

"All you can be judged on is your record. What your record is overall. What your record is within your conference. What your record is with head-to-head matchups," Harbaugh said. "I think you'll find Ohio State is the only team with a better record, a better conference record than us (since I've been there) and has a better head-to-head matchup with us."

Harbaugh will try for a fifth time to get his first win in The Game on Nov. 30th at noon. This rivalry doesn't appear to be cooling down anytime soon.
