Houston head coach Tom Herman, one of the most promosing young coaches in college football, joined Dan Patrick on his radio show Friday morning, answering a number of questions about his future. But Patrick's final question - which is certainly off-topic - was the one that elicited the most interesting answer.

Patrick asked Herman whether Urban Meyer or Jim Harbaugh would win in a fight. Herman took Meyer, adding that the Ohio State head coach would be the "Vegas favorite." Considering Herman is a former assistant of Meyer's, the response isn't a shock. Instead, it's just a shock that he answered at all.

Michigan and Ohio State will meet in late November, but unless something crazy happens, the real fight will be on the field between the players. That's probably a good thing.
