Jim Harbaugh Ripped The Officiating After Loss To Ohio State

Jim Harbaugh answers questions after the Ohio State loss.


Jim Harbaugh is not happy.

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is pretty upset with the officiating that took place in the Wolverines' double-overtime loss to Ohio State.

There was a controversial spot on the Buckeyes' game-winning drive in double-overtime and a penalty called on Harbaugh in the second half that led to an OSU touchdown.

Following the game, Harbaugh expressed his distaste for the officiating. He says he didn't think it was a first down by Barrett and disagreed with the penalty called on himself that led to Ohio State's touchdown.

Here's video of Harbaugh's comments, from Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News.

With the loss, Michigan falls to 10-2 and will likely play in a non-College Football Playoff New Year's Six bowl game.

Ohio State improved to 11-1 and likely locked up a spot in the College Football Playoff, unless the Buckeyes make the Big Ten Championship Game and lose to Wisconsin.
