Is today opposite day?

Umm, the hell?

Neal Coolong of Steelers Wire was the first to point out that John Harbaugh and Ben Roethlisberger hugged it out at a Miami University ceremony. Check out some of the photos of the awkwardness below...

Both Harbaugh and Roethlisberger are Miami University graduates, so it does make sense that both would be at their alma mater's ribbon cutting ceremony for the school's new Dauch Indoor Sports Center.

Maybe Harbaugh was feeling for any weak spots on big Ben's ribs? Maybe he stepped on his toe when they went in for the hug? Or maybe Harbaugh just reminded Ben of the whooping that his Baltimore Ravens put on the Steelers in the AFC Wild Card Playoffs last season to send them back home.

Even though they look all buddy-buddy here, you can bet that Harbaugh isn't going to take it easy on his AFC North rival in weeks 4 and 16 of the NFL season. Harbaugh can console Ben in the same way after the Ravens knock the Steelers out of playoff contention again this season.
