Jim Harbaugh had choice words for the officiating after Michigan's 30-27 loss to Ohio State in Columbus on Saturday.
The Michigan coach was upset with a number of calls in the game, most notably the 15-yard penalty he was given for a sideline tantrum and the first down given to J.T. Barrett on the controversial fourth-and-1 play that kept the Buckeyes' double-overtime drive alive.
"I'm bitterly disappointed in the officiating," Harbaugh said in his postgame press conference. "I could have been watching the game instead of being concerned [with sideline behavior]. Throwing your hat, throwing your script -- that's a penalty. I asked him about it and he said, 'Well, it is in basketball.' Well, this isn't basketball. He told me he officiates basketball. I don't know the relevance. He said it would have been a technical in basketball. I'm bitter."
"I thought there were some outrageous calls, including the one that [should have] ended the game," he said later.
Those comments did not sit well with the Big Ten, which announced on Monday that Michigan would be fined $10,000 for Harbaugh's comments.
"The Big Ten office today issued a public reprimand of Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh for violating the Big Ten Sportsmanship Policy following Michigan's game against Ohio State on Nov. 26, In addition, the conference announced that the institution has been fined $10,000 as a result of the violation."
