Trolls of Michigan Baseball Ryan Day Following Wolverines’ Win Against Buckeyes for Third StraightMichigan Baseball Trolls Ryan Day After Wolverines Win Third Straight  Against Buckeyes - Sports Illustrated Michigan Wolverines News, Analysis  and More

Ryan Day’s record against Michigan is currently just 1-3, despite his stellar 40-0 record in conference play during his time as Ohio State’s head coach. As a result, many Buckeye fans have called for his dismissal following a 30-24 loss in Ann Arbor.

If you’re Ryan Day, the head coach of Ohio State, it’s definitely not the best place to be. Day’s record against Michigan is currently just 1-3, despite his stellar 40-0 record in conference play during his time as head coach in Columbus. As a result, many Buckeye fans have called for Day’s firing following a 30-24 loss in Ann Arbor.

As far as Michigan goes, this is as good as it gets. Despite a difficult start to his coaching career at Michigan against the Buckeyes, head coach Jim Harbaugh has significantly changed his direction over the last three seasons.

“Some people are born on third base and act like they’ve hit a triple, but they didn’t,” Harbaugh said after Michigan’s convincing victory over the Buckeyes in Ann Arbor back in 2021. Despite not mentioning Ryan Day by name, it’s widely accepted that his remark was undoubtedly aimed at the head coach of the Buckeyes.

A year before that 2021 game, reports surfaced that Day had been speaking on a Big Ten coaches conference call when Harbaugh interrupted. Harbaugh claimed the Buckeyes had broken the rules by giving illegal on-field instruction before it was authorized. Day said, “How about I worry about my team and you worry about yours?” in response, according to the reports.

Day has a 0-3 record against the Wolverines since his stated remarks from 2020, despite the fact that Michigan and Ohio State would not play that year due to COVID concerns. It’s thought that Harbaugh’s 2021 “born on third” remark was essentially Day taking credit—and getting arrogant—for what Urban Meyer had built.

The “born on third” comment became popular among the Maize and Blue faithful, and it’s now a common way to poke fun at Ryan Day in Ann Arbor. Take a look at the tweet from the official Michigan Baseball twitter account from today as proof.
