Mayor of Ohio city takes shot at Jim Harbaugh

It’s a little-known fact that Jim Harbaugh and Urban Meyer were both born in the same city: Toledo, Ohio. One has a key to the city, though, and it might not be the one you expect.

Earlier in the summer, Toledo mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz gave Harbaugh a key to the city, an honor still not yet bestowed upon Meyer.

Not only did this go down poorly with Ohio State fans, the University of Toledo also wasn’t pleased. The Rockets won the Mid-American Conference last year, but coach Jason Candle didn’t get one either. That led at least one Toledo trustee to send an angry letter to the mayor, while athletic director Mike O’Brien said the school was “surprised” and “frustrated,” via David Briggs of the Toledo Blade.

On Thursday, Kapszukiewicz tried to undo some of the damage his decision had caused.

Nice try, Mayor, but the damage has been done. Meyer probably hasn’t given it any thought, though. He’s hurting his Wolverine counterpart in other ways.
