Remember when Ryan Day told his team last year that they would hang 100 points on the Michigan Wolverines when they met up next? Turns out, Michigan football remembers.

There certainly was a Buckeyes contingent that felt that, after the 2018-19 games, OSU could throttle the Wolverines yet again, as if two previous years of defense carries over into the following years. Though Matt Weiss is Michigan’s quarterback’s coach, he couldn’t let that comment stand, even if it was over a year later, now that the maize and blue have emerged with a 42-27 victory over Ohio State.

The Buckeyes only managed 64 yards on the ground on Saturday, with 30 yards coming via sacks and tackles for loss. Ohio State managed just 2.1 yards per carry against the Wolverines. Thus, Weiss found a perfect opportunity for a dig.

He wasn’t the only one who threw shade. Head coach Jim Harbaugh had his moment when he vowed to take the high road, but still got in a subtle dig at the Buckeyes, noting that he heard all the talk coming out of Columbus and that it motivated the team.

“It did. I know probably the things you’re thinking of are the same as the things I’m thinking of,” Harbaugh said. “But let’s move on with humble hearts, take the high road. But there was definitely stuff that people said that spurred us on even more, sure.

“Sometimes people that are standing on third base think they hit a triple, but they didn’t.”

For at least a year now, anyone in the Michigan camp can say what they want about Ohio State. After all, isn’t that what they’ve been doing in Columbus for awhile now?
