Every time an SEC coach whines about satellite camps, Jim Harbaugh gets his wings.

You’d think a bunch of guys getting paid millions of dollars a year would figure out at some point they’re just feeding him straight lines, but I guess we’re not there yet.

I do love the “their HC” reference, though.  He must be waiting for an introduction before he calls out Saban by name.

    He’s right. But, I still reserve the right to call him a douche nozzle.

    Why did Harbaugh feel the need to put quotation marks around the word amazing? English majors everywhere demand an answer.

    To be fair, he only does this because he gets a free pass from media and bloggers. When Urb throws nonsense out there, opinion people push back. Harbaugh? They roll over.

    Saban’s right. Screw Harbaugh and scree rolling over because people are afraid of him.

    If it wasn’t for hypocrisy they’d all have no pocrisy at all, whatever that is.

    And the word ‘amazing’ needs to be taken out and shot.

    Saban could take the lead and just refuse to do satellite camps and see where it goes. Coaches want rules that protect against themselves.

    Don’t think he addressed Coach Smart by name either.

  9. Just as the media will say that Kirby will use all his energy in recruitment, I say that Harbaugh will use all his energy in mouthing people.

    It’ll be beyond hilarious if last year proves to be the best year that Harbaugh has at Michigan. And – call me crazy – I think it’s very likely.

      Right now Michigan and Ohio State have two of three best coaches in CFB on their sidelines (other resides in Tuscaloosa, of course). That game is going to be a fun one to watch the next few years.

      Here’s the thing that I don’t get. Why do so many people have animosity towards Harbaugh? I mean – yeah he can be a bit childish, but isn’t personality what made a lot of people enjoy Spurrier? I think guys that have personality and aren’t maniacal robots like Urban and Saban are good for the game. Just my two pennies.

        I agree that injecting some personality into the game is good for all but Harbaugh comes off as whiny and thin skinned. Saban probably wont address it at all. He doesn’t have time for the that shit. polishing five rings every day takes up his time.

          Word of mouth on Harbaugh is that he wears out his welcome. His antics get attention, but there’s not a lot of depth there. His audience tunes him out.

          Well, he’s wearing out his welcome with the CFB audience.

          I personally think he’s heading to Miami soon. Ross wanted him there to begin with, but SF played hardball. He’s at MIchigan long enough to get a couple of recruiting classes in the door, but he’ll be moving on. I’m guessing by the end of this season.

          Agree. Spurrier’s cracks usually came with a smile (smirk) and some wit. Harbaugh’s put-downs carry the tone of some ‘roided up weirdo.

        The difference is that SOS would have called saban out directly and made a crack about his height, cream pies, or stolen guns.

        Harbaugh subtweets a guy not even on twitter.

        I am a connoisseur of snark and I find the michigan coach’s snark to be flat, single note and not yet the complex and mature snark that OBC blessed up with for so many years.

        Harbaugh isn’t just childish. He’s the kind of dick who bitches and then starts throwing punches (against announcers who question his toughness). He’s the kind of guy who bullies 10 year-olds in laser tag (true story). Spurrier would troll, but then have the guts to stand up and take his medicine if his team lost. Spurrier’s still a dick, but he owns it and has my respect. Harbaugh’s own players question whether he’s clinically insane.

      A second “you crazy”. Harbaugh still needs to add some talent, but he is in a great position in a weak Big10. Go check out their schedule and tell me how he loses more than 3 games this year. btw, to get the 3rd lose he needs to stub his toe against a lesser opponent.

    What’s amazing to me is that Jim thinks he has to put quotation marks around the word “amazing” in that tweet. It serves no grammatical purpose at all. I thought Michigan men were supposed to be men of letters.

    Oh look, another finger pointer reinforcing the truth that Saban is king. Saban can say whatever he wants, look you in the eye and just dare you to flinch. It’s good to be the king.

    The secret Word of the Day is “amazing” in podium-pounding Nick Saban goes off on satellite camp issue, questions motives –

    “What’s amazing to me is somebody didn’t stand up and say here’s going to be the unintended consequences of what you all are doing.”
