Jim and Jack Harbaugh released their after-Ohio State podcast today and in this episode, Jack talks about Michigan winning a share of the Big Ten East title and how Michigan should hang a co-champions banner somewhere at the school. Jack, a Michigan assistant from 1973-1979, says Bo didn’t see ties as ties.

97.1 in Detroit transcribed the banner conversation:

“This team in my judgement, and Bo Schembechler taught me this, I have 5 Big Ten rings, championship rings, 5, but two or three of those were ties. Bo never looked at them as ties. So we this year tied for the Big Ten East Conference Championship. we were 8-1 and Ohio State is 8-1. I think if I would have the means to do this I think we ought to make a little bit of a banner and stick that somewhere to remind us that we were champions. There were only two teams that finished with only one loss in the Big Ten. Ohio State and Michigan and I understand the tie break — but I do understand, too, that we were the co-champions of the Big Ten.”

The action starts at the 8:50 mark of the podcast. Jim didn’t say anything on the subject.
