Some people just don’t let rivalries be non-existent outside of the football field. That has never been more apparent than when Big Ten coaches Urban Meyer, Mark Dantonio, and Jim Harbaugh all appeared at an event together in Detroit on Friday.
According to College Spun, the three coaches were all together at the Sound Mind Sound Body Football Academy camp and people apparently took that the wrong way.
Twitter blew up with what have been called “awkward photos” of the three coaches together.

Come on, people. Let’s calm down for a second and not try to make a mountain out of a molehill as my mother used to say. I know that Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State are huge rivals on the gridiron, but let’s wait for September to start making accusations.
These coaches are people too. They can have friends.
