The Ohio State Buckeyes are favored to beat the Michigan Wolverines on the field on Nov. 26 and, apparently, that might extend to a physical confrontation between the team’s head coaches. On Friday, Houston Cougars coach Tom Herman was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show and he was asked to weigh in on who would “take” the other between Urban Meyer, Herman’s former boss, and Jim Harbaugh.
His response was in line with what you might think.
It would be very interesting to see what an objective party had to say about this hypothetical situation. For starters, Harbaugh clearly holds the edge in the craziness department, as he routinely displays rage and behavior that is eccentric in an overall sense. Still, Meyer could be seen as more tactical and, contrary to popular belief, it appears that the two men are close to the same size.
In the end, Jim Harbaugh is a former professional athlete with a mean streak that Urban Meyer probably can’t match, but if these two ever mixed it up in this fashion, it would be must-see television of the highest order. Until then, though, we are left to wonder and decide if Tom Herman was, in fact, correct in his assessment.
