[edit: This post has NOTHING to do with Jim Schwartz. I don't give a damn about both coaches dickish behavior after yesterday's game. I think it was comical to say the least. What I don't understand is our fanbase's defense of Harbaugh. He has sold our university out time and time again. It's time to get over our "ex."]
There has already been too much discourse on this board for one individual, but what I find shocking is the people running to the defense of a "Michigan Man." It is pretty clear that Harbaugh has long since traded in his alma mater for his own personal benefit, evidenced no clearer than by his words and actions
1. In 2007, Harbaugh criticized UM's academic integrity regarding their athletes. He insinuated that Michigan has pushed athletes into taking easier classes, and that they wouldn't have the potential to earn respectable jobs after graduating. His comments were contrasting a Stanford education to Michigan's, and were described by Mike Hart as "self serving."
2. In 2010/2011, as Michigan was attempting to recover from the Rodriguez tenure, it was clear that Harbaugh, despite his previously burned bridges, was the leading candidate for what he had previously described as his "dream job," the head coach of Michigan. After winning the Orange Bowl with Stanford, he spurned his alma mater and parlayed his coaching credentials to a gig in the NFL, leaving the university to scramble to find another qualified candidate. When Michigan came calling, at their most desperate hour, Harbaugh said "thanks, but no thanks."
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Harbaugh has long since worn out his welcome at UM, and has overused his label as a "Michigan Man" to merit our support. There is no reason to defend this clown, because his behavior would suggest that he doesn't give a damn about UM anyway. We have moved on and so has he.
