Could this be it?
CC: Post Orange Bowl Jim Harbaugh News Conference Coming Up On ESPN
way. not yet.
No this is not it.
I'd love so much if he never showed up to the news conference. Let's face it, it'll be one question about the game, one about the halftime adjustments, one about Luck, and then a host of attempts to get "The Answer." Buzz off for a night, media.
I don't believe we'll get much...but we'll see!
Harbaugh is going to announce that he is changing his name to HARD BALLZ!
He will have a Michigan, 49er and Bronco hat in front of him and will tease us with the hat dance.
it will be interesting to see how many deflections he will have to dish out.
Yes, this is it.
0% chance it happens, but wouldn't it be so sweet to see him come out with a stack of hats and do a High School-esque announcement.
I'm going to play a drinking game on based on how many different ways he's asked the same question we all want to know.
Pool on when I blackout?
By Question 5... if you do a shot every time he has to deflect, and doubles for when he deflects twice from one question.
Is it too much to ask for him to shotgun a busch light, shout "peace out bitches, I'm going to Ann Arbor!!", and walk away at the end of press conference?
BTW, I think I could get used to stickered helmets if they play like that. That D was sweet!
The one thing people are forgetting in all this is that he just had another kid! I think that is really important in his decision, where will he actually be able to raise his children rather than being consumed by his job?
You're right. He needs to get that baby away from the San Andreas Fault and into a geologically stable region with adequate freshwater supplies. And a massive football stadium.
Darn it, I didn't realize these were concerns I should be having before starting a family.
You'll likely find out as much about the CC watching that.
That three man tag-team setup is kind of bullshit, but I suppose if they can get away with it more power to 'em. You do have to admit they've got style.
JIM LAYING THE SMACKETH DOWN.
Based on that answer he just gave, he isn't saying anything.
He said it all with his eyes.
But I thought it was a pretty foregone conclusion as to him leaving. Only question is where.
Death stare/Bo gum chomp combo. Nice.
He'll continue to deflect and say tonight is about his players, guaranteed.
Harbaugh tells the media to focus on the players, and a solid 20 seconds of awkward silence. Great stuff.
Good night guys...the story continues tomorrow.
honestly could there be a more perfect representation for the situation.
At least JH knows how to stop the media!!!!!!
First a recitation of his entire roster, and then a Reggie Jackson quote.
Harbaugh really has control of the Media!! Harbaugh has a special week dedicated to him like "Shark Week".
What does Mike Tirico's gut say?
"Where was the media hospitality room again? Is buffet still out?"
He said, "IF i had a gut"
My gut says Tirico has a substantial gut....
I lost my train of thought...drinking game to Harbaugh interview questions getting to me.
What was in that aluminum can? Was that a Pepsi or a Busch Light / Labatt Blue Light?
He looks so over-caffienated...
He just took a swig of an unsponsored beverage in a can. Was it Vernors? Was it Anchor Steam? Holy hell! its all in the drink. The answer is right there.
It is definitely a liquified dominoes pizza. Hand-tossed pepperoni and cheese I believe.
You know its late at night when I'm actually trying to decide if that would be any good. The old pizza in a can.
What in God's name does the mean?!!!
if he couldn't even wait 1 hour to start drinking. Wondering if he has an alcohol problem.
I like him deferring some of the questions to his qb. Getting him some reps with the media before he goes to the NFL.
Well....we give up - ESPN
I respect the heck out of RR but that was kind of fun to watch Harbaugh handle the media and I could imagine him handling the Detroit media quite easily.
"Won't be long before we're doing 6 a.m. workouts again."
And then a big laugh as he looks down toward Luck.
Harbaugh definitely beats RR in the punk the media category. RR needs to take some notes, he's just too genuine with the media.
Harbaugh/Luck on media:
we learned absolutely nothing. obviously if he was committed to staying at stanford, he may have said so, but as between us and the nfl, nada.
where I was sure the gum would fall out of Harbaugh's mouth. The poise he exhibited to keep it in there was simply amaizing. See what I did just there?
ESPN didn't even list the Big 10 in the Bowl Challenge...
This is true pimp-hand action on display. He would destroy Drew Sharp in a press conference.
Just imagine DB and JH joining forces to form the ULTIMATE PIMP HAND. The freep wouldn't know what hit them.
Just when I think I hate you, you go and pull some shit like this. All is forgiven, jmblue. Plus un.
all those posters who hate Harbaugh went. 2 months ago this place was full of them.
Anyways, if there is a god Jim Harbaugh will become our coach. My job will become unbearable if "even a Michigan Man won't take that job" ugg I can hear it now
We will get a new coach (most likely) and fans will be optimistic again.
With regards to the Harbaugh Haters disappearing, check out the Orange bowl game thread. There are a couple that seem to vanish midway 2nd half.
JH is our coach if he wants to be. And a lot of sources say he does. And some say he doesn't and we won't know until later and nothing they say can change that now.
I thought it was a classy move. He diverted attention to the team and game, not to himself or to speculation.
Isn't that what Bo did back in the day?
anyone got a link to this video? i wasnt watching espn when they had this.
shit his pants watching Harbaugh handle a press conference
shit his pants watching Harbaugh handle a press conference."
No, actually the shit was already in there for a couple of hours.
I have to say that I think it takes a lot of class to not field any of the questions. To make it all about the team and the players really says something.
He'll point to a random player, say "this is the guy, talk to this guy", then get up and leave.
