Jim Harbaugh probably regrets this tweet about ‘whining’ from February
Jim Harbaugh had one of his signature meltdowns on the sideline Saturday in Ohio Stadium, and after the Buckeyes won a thriller in double overtime, Harbaugh eviscerated officials in his postgame press conference.
Harbaugh was livid over a controversial spot after a fourth-down play that set up Ohio State's game-winning touchdown. The coach said that he was “bitterly disappointed” with the officials' decision, which stood following a review.
“It wasn't a first down, by that much,” Harbaugh said, holding his hands about a foot apart. “I'm bitterly disappointed in the officiating today. That spot, the graphic displays, the [pass] interference penalties, the one not called [for] us on Grant Perry, clearly was being hooked before the ball got there. And the previous penalty, they called on Delano Hill, the ball's uncatchable and by the receiver…. So I'm bitterly disappointed in the officiating. Can't make that any more clear.”
Earlier in the game, Harbaugh erupted and was assessed an unsportsmanlike penalty.
It didn't take long for Ohio State fans to dig up this tweet from February.
At the time, Harbaugh was referencing the SEC's reaction to Michigan staging a training camp at IMG Academy in Florida.

Question of the day: Does anyone find whining to be attractive? Just curious.
