Seemed to have a great time on his visit, but didn't seem like a candidate to join the good guys. Here's hoping Herman flips him to Texas.....

It was never going to be easy. Meyer is a great coach and OSU has been chugging along as a well-oiled machine for 25+ years (the Fickell year aside). Michigan is still climbing out of the depths of despair. What Harbaugh has done in just 2 years is crazy. Michigan was the better team this year and I'd expect them to remain on par, but it's never going to be easy to beat a loaded team with a great coach.

Hmmm, don't know how you would get from my post that I was inferring it was ever going to be "EASY" to beat OSU.  What I am suggesting is that beating them has been incredibly difficult (one win in the last decade) and not going to get any easier.  A similar anology would be if Conor McGregor gained greater wrestling / grappling skills.  It wouldn't make it any easier beating him, but in no way does that suggest it will ever be easy to beat him.

You literally said it won't get any EASIER, implying that you thought it might get easier...and I'm saying what made you think it would get easier?

It's always been hard to beat them, and it always will be. They won't make the mistake of hiring a guy Dave Brandon to run their athletic department or someone like RichRod/Hoke to coach their football team.

It is a fact that Harbaugh boasted a 2-1 record against Pete Carroll's USC, but I honestly feel like only 1 of those teams Harbaugh beat was "championship-caliber" (2007).
