We're more than two months away from The Game, but emotions are already heating up.
Jim Harbaugh and Ryan Day reportedly got into it on a Big Ten coaches teleconference this week.
According to Bucknuts.com of 247 Sports, Harbaugh interrupted Day to accuse Ohio State of coaching its players this offseason before the NCAA allows it. Harbaugh specifically referenced a recently-surfaced picture of OSU linebackers coach (and former Michigan coach) Al Washington working with a group of the Buckeyes' linebackers.
Coaches aren't permitted to engage in on-field instruction with players until Friday.
Day reportedly responded by saying, “How about I worry about my team and you worry about yours?"
Day wasn't going to let the accusation slide. In a team meeting after the call, he reportedly told his players that the Big Ten better have a mercy rule, because "We're going to hang 100 on them" this season.
The Buckeyes have scored a combined 118 points over the last two matchups, so maybe it's not out of the question.
This year's game is scheduled for Oct. 24.
