Urban Meyer has strong message for Michigan Wolverines

Every year around this time, the rumors begin flying around that Jim Harbaugh will leave Michigan to return to the NFL, where he had quite a bit of success during his time with the San Francisco 49ers.

But this year, those rumors have been even more heated as Harbaugh has just one year remaining on his current contract.

Everybody seems to have an opinion on whether or not the Wolverines should move on from Harbaugh, including former Ohio State head coach, Urban Meyer.

On Saturday, Meyer had a strong message for Michigan, saying that Harbaugh should stay and that the Wolverines should not lower their standards.

“Yeah, I have a much, much different perspective, because I’m older than you guys,” Meyer said. “I grew up in the 70s, 80s and 90s. In the 70s, it was about even — I’m talking about the rivalry. 80s — about even. In the 90s, the Wolverines are 7-2-1. So that’s 17-11-2 for the three decades prior to the last 20 years. So I refuse to accept that anyone says that anyone says they can’t compete with Ohio State. I refuse! Don’t ever lower your standards. If you’re a leader and you’re a graduate of the Wolverines, do not lower your standards!

“I made the comment — is Jim Harbaugh a good coach? He’s a heckuva coach. He’s won 70% of his games in the NFL. I made a comment — you blow it up. I didn’t say change coaches — blow it up. Find out — evaluate your recruiting strategies. Evaluate your player development and get that right. Do not lower your standards, I’m telling you — do not do that. Because that’s a tremendous history in that organization.

“Get it right!”
