The USA Today might want this one back.

Jim Harbaugh is one of the most polarizing figures in college football. In his two seasons with the Michigan Wolverines, Harbaugh turned the program from a middling Big Ten team into a conference contender.

One thing he has never done, though, is win the Big Ten -- or beat the Wolverines' rival, Ohio State.

Don't tell that to USA Today, however, as the site claims in the two years since Harbaugh joined Michigan he now "owns college football." Naturally, Twitter exploded at the bravado, and came up with a few all-time responses to the tweet.

Here's the USA Today tweet in question.

In the article, Nancy Armour attempts to quell the outrage before it begins. In the piece she writes, "Now, before you folks in Ohio, Alabama and the San Francisco 49ers front office start howling, hear me out." Her attempts are well-intentioned, but nothing can stop the masses of college football fans that don't like Jim Harbaugh and the way he runs his team.

Here are some of the responses to the USA Today tweet.

You knew the masses from Ohio State and the Twitter community in general would come out, and that's exactly what happened.
