Ohio State vs. Michigan Reaction: It Was The End Of The Revenge Tour In Columbus And The Start a Buckeye Climb


Instead of the continuation of the revenge tour for Michigan, it was instead a resurgence for Ohio State in blowout fashion in Columbus.

Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines have lost to Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes — yet again.

Meyer now moves to an eye-opening 7-0 in arguably the biggest rivalry in all of sports. Michigan has now won just one out of the last fifteen matchups against the Buckeyes, and Michigan claimed at the beginning of the year that it was on a “revenge tour.”

The Harbaugh led Wolverines were two for three on the much-anticipated tour stops, capping off two impressive wins against division rivals Michigan State and Penn State. But it wasn’t meant to be today. Not in the third one.

It was clearly a day in which Michigan lost to a more-prepared and talented team that proved it belonged in the College Football Playoff.

But back to Harbaugh. He has underperformed in the eyes of many at Michigan, as he has zero division titles, zero Big Ten titles, zero wins against the Darth Vader Ohio State program. In fact, his overall record in rivalry games isn’t rosy either.

Harbaugh is by no means on the hot seat in Ann Arbor, however things could change if the Wolverines don’t find their way to Indianapolis sometime soon. The Wolverines “ferocious” defense gave up 62 points to the Buckeyes, and they’ll once again miss the College Football Playoff at the hands of Ohio State, their arch-nemesis (we all remember 2016).

Among all the scrutiny and adversity at Ohio State this year, somehow, someway, Urban Meyer’s squad is still in the hunt for a College Football Playoff spot. Ohio State has now punched its ticket to the Big Ten Championship next week, having seemingly fixed the weaknesses that plagued it all season.

Instead of this being a “Revenge Tour Year” for Michigan, it seems more like 2014 all over again for Ohio State.
