Harbaugh Podcast: Jim and Jack talk about officiating and the 'Harbaugh Rule'

The podcast has been advertised here before, but I thought the talk about officiating was interesting this morning.  The cut block that Kugler was called for spurred a question to the B1G office about what's legal in that situation.  They're also checking on WR picks - as Jim explained, he wants to know why there are never any OPI calls on pick routes.  He believes the rule is that blocking is allowed 1-yd downfield, and mentions that we always get picked at 3 yds.  (Personally, I've always thought it was a 3-yd rule in college, 1-yd in pro.)

Jack talked a lot about how proud he was that Jim has kept his composure this year.  Talking about the Harbaugh Rule (where coaches aren't allowed on the field at all), he called out the officials by saying that Meyer had to be shoved off the field by an official because he was in the way pre-snap.  Then two plays later, Iowa was given a bench warning for coaches on the field.  Said the officials were so mad at Meyer that they had to penalize Iowa!  

Also Nature Boy was "Wooooo"-ing, so how bad can that be?  Plus, he expects to be in AA for the OSU game, and was asking for tickets.

All in the first 20 minutes, so here it is...
