On Tuesday night the Michigan Wolverines hosted Big Ten rival Ohio State in a pivotal conference matchup. The Buckeyes traveled to Ann Arbor through frigid Midwest temperatures with an upset on their minds.

After 20 minutes of play, Michigan held a 32-26 lead thanks to a 7-0 run over the final two minutes of the first half. During the first half of play, ESPN college basketball analyst Dan Dakich - who was on the call - decided to take a shot at the Michigan football program.

Of course there was some sort of shot coming as Ohio State's domination of the rivalry on the gridiron hasn't gone unnoticed by the media. Dakich referenced the rivalry between the two programs and mentioned there isn't a rivalry on the football field any more.

He also said Urban Meyer's retirement was the best thing to happen to the Michigan football program.

While the Wolverines haven't found much success against Ohio State on the gridiron lately, John Beilein's Wolverines are proving their worth on the hard court.

Michigan holds a 47-36 lead with just over 11 minutes left to go in the second half.
