At first I thought that having Jim Harbaugh in the Big Ten and coaching Ohio State's chief rival would be fun and cheeky, kind of like a Mike Leach that's obsessed with milk instead of pirates.
But no! It has turned out to be depressing and bad, because Harbaugh's Michigan teams are (usually) every bit as malaise-y and boring to watch and follow as every other incarnation of the Wolverines since the turn of the century. Is it possible they'll turn it around and become a bonafide threat to Ohio State? Sure, anything is possible. It's possible that I'll rescue a rich Swabian duke from a well and then get invited to live in his castle where his many servants shower me in gold coins, but I doubt it as much as I doubt Harbaugh turning Michigan football into something nationally relevant.
Anyway, on the flip side, we'll always have social media. And Ohio State's many, many victories.

you can really tell that Ohio State got to hire the most sought-after coach in football and gave him a half-decade to establish his style at the program, while Michigan has a first-time head coach promoted after the last guy awkwardly and abruptly resigned— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) November 30, 2019
Why? - my dad, a Michigan alum, when I asked him this morning if he was going to watch this game— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) November 30, 2019
Wisconsin, a team that at least has an ethos, dude, is up next. See you then.
