ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum has reacted to Saturday's Ohio State-Michigan game, during which the Buckeyes blew out the Wolverines at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.

Finebaum called the game an "embarrassing" display for Harbaugh and his program, which once again failed to beat its rival.

Urban Meyer improved to 7-0 against Michigan during his time in Columbus, while Harbaugh dropped to 0-4 against Ohio State.

Finebaum thinks there's just one thing that can help Harbaugh at Michigan moving forward: Urban Meyer deciding to retire.

Unless that happens, he's not beating Ohio State, according to Finebaum.

"As long as Urban Meyer is at Ohio State, Jim Harbaugh is going to lose that game every year," he said on SportsCenter this morning.

At this point, it's tough to argue against that.

Ohio State improved to 11-1 with the win on Saturday, while Michigan dropped to 10-2. The Buckeyes will meet Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday.
