Tensions always run high when the Michigan Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes face off and the 2016 edition is no different, with both teams entering the game ranked in the top three nationally. During the game, it did not take long for Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh to explode with emotion for the first time, as the officiating crew elected to swallow their whistles on what appeared to be a blatant defensive pass interference from the Buckeyes.
As you can see above, Harbaugh took his frustrations out on both his own headset and the closest official to the Michigan sideline, and he ran nearly 30 yards just to confront the man in stripes. Harbaugh isn’t always correct when he lets an official have it in spectacular fashion, but wide receiver Amara Darboh was unceremoniously tackled and even impartial viewers could not believe the no-call.
Many plays will decide the game between two of the best teams in the country, but round one in the officiating battle appears to go to Ohio State.
