I think the coaches who tried to bring it up to the Big Ten were the problem and not necessarily the spread itself. Just because other people didn't have success with the system in the Big Ten doesn't mean Meyer is going to have the same problem. Say what you want, but he's had some success as a coach. I'm very interested to see how Meyer does at Ohio. I obviously don't want him to succeed, but it'll be interesting to watch. Until of course, he quits/un-quits/quits.
The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
