From MGOBlogger:

The ref who made the call on the 4th and 1 spot was none other than ohio native (Cincy) and OHSAA hall of fame ref Bobby Sager who is a known Buckeye football fan. He is also the ref that threw the flag on Harbaugh for a personal foul when he threw his headset. Ironically when the Buckeyes didnt get the first down on the fake punt Urban threw his headset without getting a foul. Bobby Sager is the ref who told Habaugh he was a basketball ref and that what Harbaugh did would have been a tech in Basketball.

Aside from the spot there were four third-down judgement calls on a PI and each were decided in favor of Ohio.

Jim Harbaugh says the ref told him he was penalized for throwing headset and papers because "It would have been a technical in basketball."

Harbaugh replied "This is not basketball!"

What's the normal process for picking the refs?

Harbaugh was penalized mostly for throwing his playcard out on the field. This was showing up the refs. He then slammed his headset down in front of him . Meyer threw his in back of himself.

That being said, I can definitely see how Mich fans would be pissed.

That is amazing that they put those refs on the field for that game. Unless the rest of the crew are Michigan based refs and UM fans, that seems like a huge oversight by the big ten.
