I’m absolutely stunned at how quiet Jim Harbaugh has been during this offseason where he tries to figure out which of his 20 QBs (just an exaggeration, Michigan fan) he’ll trot out there to face Notre Dame on September 1 as the college football rivalry that should’ve never ended gets rolling again. You’d think by now Harbaugh would’ve ripped off his shirt in France to give the media traveling with the team some content to turn into RTs so that recruits could see that Jim is woke. I figured he would’ve climbed a tree in France by now.
Here we are headed towards year four of the Jimmy experience and he’s 0-3 against Ohio State. He’s 28-11 as head coach. Brady Hoke was 26-13 at this point. Jimmy is 1-2 against Michigan State, including this season’s 14-10 L. All the talk. All the boasting. All the fans running their mouths about how quick things would be different.
Yet here we are with Michigan in France and Jimmy has barely made a headline, minus the fake drama created by Big Js over his college football transfer comments. The Big Js need anything they can get their hands on this time of year. They have editors telling them to come up with anything to keep the machine chugging along.
Today Jim is in Paris taking in the sights. Summer is about to start. He finally has his transfer quarterback savior. He has seven home games, barely has to travel this season and one trip to Ohio State on November 24.
By the way, is that a dip can in Jim’s khakis? Wouldn’t of pegged him as a guy who threw in a pinch.
From ESPN back in the day…Jimmy likes a pinch:
“According to Stanford assistant coach Ron Lynn, “it was not beyond him to take off his shoes” in a recruit’s living room and ask for a spittoon.”
As BC assistant L.A. James asked me about an hour ago, “Do they sell those in Europe?” No idea.
UPDATE: MICHIGAN FANS SAY I MUST NOT WATCH JIM’S MOUTH ENOUGH LIKE THEY DO
He literally has it every game lol

Ohio State reported Mike Vrabel to the NCAA for using chew on the sidelines back in 2012. I expect a full list of violations from Michigan’s compliance department to the NCAA by Friday.
