Yeah, his team got pounded in the second half last night, but this first half TD pass that the Virginia Tech quarterback threw was one of the niftiest plays I saw all season.
Talk about using every inch of the width of the field…

Amazing play. It was fun to watch.
On a separate note, I didn’t realize how big a douche Harbaugh is. What kind of crap was the double line shift in the 4th quarter? Then the runner got stoned. And his “interview” after the game was pretty arrogant as well.
If I were Harbaugh right now, it would be hard not to feel arrogant. I doubt there’s ever been better timing to be a hot coaching candidate than what he’s got right now.
The college game is childsplay to Harbaugh now. It’s time for him to show the boys in the NFL how it’s done. You know, like Spurrier and Petrino did.
Harbaugh isn’t the ‘i’m the smartest guy on the field’ type of arrogance like Johnson or Weis. It more of ‘i’m gonna punch you in the mouth until you stop me kinda arrogance’ its the ‘My team is tougher than yours’ type of arrogance. It’s an arrogance / attitude I would love to see in Athens. It reminds me of Erk.
Sorry about that, this post wasn’t meant you.
Yeah, Harbaugh definitely comes from the Paul Johnson/Urban Meyer/Charlie Weis school of decorum. He is a prick. You didn’t notice him running up the score on USC last year, I guess (of course, I giggled at that because the Trojans had it coming themselves).
(btw, methinks Stanford is #2 after Oregon. They have barely been touched by anyone other than the Ducks this year).
Why was his interview arrogant? He gave all credit to the players. He didn’t take any time on the tv. I don’t see how that is arrogant. I also saw him do the same thing earlier this year after a game against Cal, I think. As far as the running up the score on USC, who cares? They truly had it coming. Its kind of like when the little brother finally gets big enough to beat up big brother and he doesn’t stop beating him. I have no problem with it USC did not have the class to call off the dogs for years when they were ahead. Shouldn’t Stanford be able to pay them back? The double line shift was awesome. I think he might have done that to show what a disciplined team they were. Did you notice everyone was in sync and went exactly where they were supposed to? If UGA had done that, there would have been at least one person who couldn’t get lined up right and would have screwed it all up. Harbaugh is great and I have enjoyed watching a couple of their games this year.
I agree totally about the interview, not arrogant at all in my opinion. I actually thought he was just trying to let it be about the kids and Stanford rather than having to answer a question about his future. You could tell she was going to do it to….”Good game coach, congrats! Are you going to be here next year or at Michigan or in the NFL?” And, agreed about the line shift too. Foster was pissed but they ran the ball up the middle, no end-around or double reverse. He was displaying his team’s discipline and letting the kids do some things. I think it was more to bring the safeties and everyone up, which it did, with the easy play-action TD on the very next play.
It was very refreshing to watch a team that knows what to do, how to do it and when to do it play last night. I liked the double shift-multiple formation thing too. It was almost like watching a group of fine military men who are proud of who they are and what they do running a drill. I do think it was a display of how disciplined and well coached they are. I agree that it would be an epic cluster$uck if Georgia tried to do anything remotely close to it.
Harabaugh is arrogant but I like it. I always liked the way he played as a player and I like him even better as a coach.
I like Harbaugh.
Tyrod asked him after the play if he was inbounds.
Harbaugh said, “Yes, you were and that was one helluva play you just made”.
In the end when ESPN pushed several times for Harbaugh to make a commitment on next season, he kept the moment to his players. His players all talked about Harbaugh’s insistence that they do the little things the players did not want to do.
I am sure it comes off as arrogant to some, but Stanford’s dominance on the lines of scrimmage this season showed how much those little things payed off. I call it confidence rather than arrogance.
We could use a good dose of that type of confidence here.
“If a team can’t really run the ball on you then what’s the next thing they’re going to have to do? Pass,” (Adam) Anderson said. “So when you can stop them both ways, then what else can you do next? Gimmicks?” -- The Athletic, 10/13/21
