Harbaugh-isms Whiteboard Photo

Submitted by SAMgO on August 20th, 2018 at 5:05 PM

Marty Smith was in Ann Arbor today for a piece on Harbaugh that is set to air during week 1 College Gameday. He tweeted out a photo of the quote board Harbaugh has in his office - I think I remember a blurry image capture of this being passed around a couple years ago from some mgoblue video, but there are some gems here. Hope the embed works:


Within his office, @CoachJim4UM has a massive whiteboard covered with Harbaughisms.

Nervous Bird

I'm a little disappointed that my new favorite didn't make the whiteboard. "Don't eat chicken... it's a nervous bird". 

That's absolutely hilarious! It's so quirky. It's so Harbaugh. It's a part of his personality that makes him such a unique, interesting guy. His quote about playing football as long as he could, then coach, then die... "preferably on the field" simply cracks me up every time I think about it. And, when he'd pound on Speight's shoulder pads before the game, I'd get so fired up that I'd damn near run through the tv.
