Mike Weber Reacts To Karan Higdon's "Guarantee" Of Beating OSU, Then Gets Owned by Higdon's Brother

Before Monday there hasn’t been much talk between the two teams, but with a new week starting, “hate week” as it’s known, trash talk comes from both players and sometimes coaches, but mostly by fans.

Michigan running back Karan Higdon was asked if he would be like his head coach and guarantee a victory over Ohio State this week.

Higdon stopped for a second to think about what he was going to say, then replied.

“Yeah, I do,” Higdon said. “That’s how I feel. I believe firmly in my brothers, in this team and this coaching staff. And as a captain, I’ll take that stand. Why not?”

This blew up the internet with reactions from fans on both sides, as Buckeye fans were calling it “bulletin board material.” But an interesting person, by the name of Mike Weber. The running back was a four-star recruit out of Detroit (MI) Cass Tech and committed to the Wolverines on Aug. 6, 2014, but that wouldn’t last long. In Nov. 2014, Weber would decommit from Michigan with then head coach Brady Hoke’s future questionable as he would eventually get fired.

Weber then would commit to Ohio State on National Signing Day as it was between Michigan and Ohio State, even new head coach Jim Harbaugh would be able to flip him back.

Three years later and two rivalry games played later and Weber had something to say about Higdon’s comments on twitter.

Weber would enjoy his laugh for only 12 hours before Kavon Higdon, Karan’s brother would respond to Weber.

Karan Higdon was committed to Iowa on October 28, 2014, then with Harbaugh running the show at Michigan, Higdon saw his opportunity and flipped his commitment on National Signing Day in 2015, committing to the Wolverines.

Behind the scenes, Weber, who had decommitted from his pledge to the Wolverines and flipped to Ohio State, had let Michigan know he was coming back into the fold the night before signing day. But after Higdon’s surprise commitment, he opted to stay with OSU to be the feature back — and ended up splitting time with the younger J.K. Dobbins.

The war of words will only last so long between the players and coaches before until The Game kicks off on Saturday, November 24 at noon in Columbus.
