We know this particular member of the media has long been a huge admirer of Coach Harbaugh.
The thing I got out of it was a greater understanding of the fans on here and their negativity. Because the point Cowherd makes is valid.
A bar has been set by a variety of factors. Many set by Coach Harbaugh's behavior and track record. Many set by program history. Some by a media on the hunt to bring down a big name and a big name program.
Whatever the source, the bar is there and undeniable. And with the standard, comes expectations. And it also brings upset posters after losses.
I have been guilty of quickly dismissing the negativity on here as unreasonable. But the expectations aren't based on nothing.
