It seems to have been a ranging conversation, and he gave a lot of good quotes on the spring trip and recruiting...
On SEC and ACC outrage:
“I thought it was fake outrage. I thought it wasn’t really real,” Harbaugh told Mike & Mike when asked his reaction to their reaction. “The moral high ground of the sanctity of spring break, that’s what people chose to use as their moral stance? I thought it was fake. I thought it was fake outrage.”
On why athletes have a sense of entitlement:
“My thoughts on recruiting, as the coach or when I was a player, you want to connect with the people you’re gonna be coached by or coaching the next four years. Not only that, but the entire family. This goes back to Bo Schembechler when I was recruited. Bo would come into your home, he’d take off his shoes, he’d sit on the couch, he wanted to know mom, he wanted to know dad, he wanted to know the grandparents, play with younger sister and you felt like coach knew you, wanted to know you. To me, that part is vitally important being able to go somebody else’s hometown, to be able to go to their school, to their house and begin the process of a long and trusted friendship is vital to a ball team. That hasn’t changed, that’s the relationship building trust is a foundation of any relationship, I believe, a marriage or a ball team.”
