Harbaugh one of highest paid coaches in the country. In year 3, the offense should not be this bad or poorly coached. The masses will turn on him quickly. This is a first year coach at Purdue beating his team. Embarrassing.

Wilton Speight isn't a Harbaugh guy and he's by far been the most disappointing part of the offense this season.

And if you're saying these are Harbaugh's players, then you have to acknowledge they're going to be young.

I just thought the comment was odd, but the point is we look like shit - that we can all agree with.

This.you can call out Drevno, Frey and Pep Hamilton all you want but Harbaugh is the Head coach and is not getting it done. For fucks sake. He's getting 5 million dollars a year for this trash. Someone needs to call him out. He's getting out coached by a first year coach from Western Kentucky. That's bullshit. Also has 4-5 star recruits.

To be fair, that is from 2015, not last year, and nothing in that story is anything Harbaugh said. Everything in that story is Fisch.

 

A month after Harbaugh was hired, Tim Drevno said he was the primary play-caller:

And then this past week from Rivals: https://michigan.rivals.com/news/harbaugh-michigan-football-play-callin…

He noted there were a number of hands involved in the play calling.

“It’s a combination. [Offensive coordinator] Tim Drevno and [passing-game coordinator] Pep [Hamilton] have the greatest share, and I’m probably third in line,” he said, hesitating before answering ‘yes’ when asked if he had ‘veto power.’

“That’s probably the simplest and best way to explain it,” he continued. “It’s a group effort by our offensive coaching staff, with Tim and Pep having the greatest share of the play calling.”

 

So it's tough to figure out what the truth is and what is "coach-speak." I'm reminded of the great interview Lloyd Carr gave going into halftime in East Lansing back in maybe 2003 or 2005 when he was asked about who made a call that backfired in the waning seconds of the half. His responses was a glare and the answer, "I did." Head coaches know to take the blame, even when it's an assistant or coordinator who messed up.
