After Jim Harbaugh took Michigan on The Most Controversial Field Trip in College Football History, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer mused he may want to do the same thing with his team next year.

Meyer met with reporters on Tuesday and said that he'd changed his mind, reasoning that he couldn't take his players' spring break away from them. Buckeyes AD Gene Smith punctuated the exchange with a friendly, rivalry game jab.

Knowing that if you respond to one jab you have to respond to all of them, Harbaugh greeted Smith's nudge on the chest with a punch to the nose.

That... escalated quickly.
