After his team’s crushing 30-27 loss to Ohio State, Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh used his press conference to convey his displeasure with how the game was officiated. And his criticisms were far from unfounded.
He gave several examples of questionable decisions by the officials, including awarding Ohio State a questionable first down on a 4th and 1 in double overtime that would have ended the game.

Then Harbaugh went off about the decision to assess him a 15-yard personal foul for throwing a tantrum on the sideline after a call he disagreed with.

It’s a tough pill to swallow for Harbaugh, whose Wolverines now appear unlikely to make the college football playoff. For now all he can do is count down the days until The Game next year.
