Harbaugh blasted the officiating after the Wolverines' 30-27 double-overtime loss at Columbus, Ohio, saying that he was "bitterly disappointed" during a lengthy rant.
He complained about an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he drew in the second half of the game when he tossed headphones and a play card, a pass interference against Michigan that prolonged a key drive for the Buckeyes and a non-call of pass interference against Ohio State. He was most ardent about the spot of a fourth-down play that gave the Buckeyes a first down in overtime when a stop would have won the game for the Wolverines.
Ohio State scored the winning touchdown on the next play.
The loss prevented the Wolverines from earning a spot in the Big Ten championship game and probably ended their hopes of reaching the College Football Playoff.
