Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines have a major Ohio State problem. After Saturday’s victory, the Buckeyes have won eight straight in the series. It simply hasn’t been a competitive rivalry as of late.
Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields had a brutally honest comment on the Michigan-OSU contest following his team’s big win. Simply put, Fields believes the Buckeyes take the rivalry more seriously than the Wolverines.
It’s hard to believe, but plenty of Michigan fans are starting to think that’s actually the case. Former Michigan star Charles Woodson responded to Fields’ comments on the rivalry on Saturday night.
It looks like Woodson believes what Fields has to say. Check out his response in the tweet below.

You know things are bad in Ann Arbor when former Michigan players are agreeing with current Buckeyes. But Fields and Woodson both have a point.
Former OSU coach and current Fox Sports analyst Urban Meyer spoke all week about how much Ohio State players focus on this rivalry. It’s a year round process of thinking about Michigan.
But the Wolverines don’t run over Big Ten opponents like the Buckeyes do. Michigan has struggled with other conference opponents over the years. It may be much more difficult for the Wolverines to pay so much attention to just one specific team – in this case, Ohio State.
One thing’s for sure – Michigan has to make changes or a loss to the Buckeyes will become an annual tradition.
