3. Jim Harbaugh’s resume is finally validated

It took him six tries, but Jim Harbaugh has beaten his arch rival when it counted the most. Michigan fans everywhere and even Harbaugh himself have been waiting for a day like this since the moment he was hired in 2014. He thoroughly delivered in one of the biggest stages of his career and life.

Thanks to Harbaugh and his rejuvenated staff the Wolverines had what it takes to end of the most dominant runs in the annals of the Big Ten conference. Ryan Day had not lost a Big Ten game for as long as he has been the coach at Ohio State, until today. That Harbaugh and Michigan will forever be an answer to a trivia question for as long as these two schools meet is sweet.

Michigan now has a opportunity to be crowned the Big Ten champions, something that hasn’t happened since 2004. The job that he has done is overwhelmingly worthy of coach of the year honors. He must not waver though, because this is, as he stated after the win “just the beginning” of what could be a run for the ages.
