Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh is no stranger to making bold, strange or flat out controversial comments when it comes to Ohio State football. 

He was at it again on the first day of Big Ten media days at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. 

Harbaugh, who has yet to beat the Buckeyes in his tenure at Michigan, said his team was going to beat Ohio State "or die trying."

The former Michigan quarterback and NFL head coach is 0-5 against Ohio State as he enters his seventh season at Michigan. He missed an opportunity last season to fix his record when Michigan, entrenched in a dismal season, canceled their its trip to Columbus due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the program. 

While no one probably expected the fiery coach to admit his team wasn't trying to beat Ohio State, his comments received some rave reviews on Twitter.
