The 2017 Buckeyes play an undefeated Wisconsin next week in the Big Ten Championship.
MI very well could have beaten Ohio State on Saturday. And he was the winning coach.
"I'm just so upset with myself it was a non-football injury", said Meyer in his post-game press conference.
Haskins replaced injured star J.T. Barrett and led the eighth-ranked Buckeyes from behind to beat the Wolverines 31-20 Saturday for their sixth straight win in a rivalry they've dominated no matter who's under center. Still, he played into the third quarter before his knee locked up.
"Honestly, just my personal opinion, we got a little complacent as players", said MI fifth-year senior quarterback John O'Korn, who finished 17 of 32 passing for 195 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
"I'm so angry right now", he told reporters of the incident. I'm gonna find out who.
Can anyone confirm Tonya Harding's whereabouts?
Barrett said he didn't think the guilty party had collided with him on goal.
"I think..." said O'Korn, and then dropped his head in dejection.
At one point Barrett rose from the podium, microphone in hand, to show reporters how the injury occurred.
"Someone tried to squeeze through close to our bench, which is fine I don't really care, as long as you don't hit me, and he hit me", Barrett said, courtesy of a video from Reggie Wilson of ABC22/FOX45.
Yeah, and he will be more nervous after reading Meyer's quotes. Then, they pulled off a 15-point comeback to knock off Ohio State 67-66 to wrap up the PK80 Tournament.
Lets roll back the tape to 2014.
The Wolverines dominated at the start, controlling the action with its lines.
MI safety Josh Metellus had a potential interception fall through his hands on that drive, and OSU quarterback J.T. Barrett rushed for a 21-yard touchdown on the next play. Needing a big win to get back into playoff consideration?
Asked about awaking from a team "slumber", Meyer took exception.
"It was obviously an emotional game", Holtmann said. Not to mention their good defense! The Bulldogs led for the whole second half and a good amount of the first half, and built a seven-point lead with 1:19 left in the game, but the Vikings cut the lead to two with 40 seconds left.
On third-and-13, he fired a 27-yard strike to receiver/roommate Austin Mack, leading to the go-ahead score. "I believe he can do it. Dwayne brings that seriousness to the game". But O'Korn, filling in for the concussed Brandon Peters, missed several throws, none more glaring than the interception he gifted the Buckeyes on the first play of Michigan's final drive.
He also panicked on a fourth-and-4 throw, rushing a pass to an open Chris Evans. "Wish we could have executed it better".
Eighty of their combined yards came in the first half, however. O'Korn scrambled and reached the ball out toward the first-down marker on the sideline but was ruled short.
It ended up having little or no impact on the outcome.
