Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh had a pretty intense satellite camp this spring, but Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen wasn’t a fan of them. In fact, Mullen did not mince words when speaking to Head to Head Radio about it.
Mullen: if Jim Harbaugh’s going to have a camp, he’d probably want to teach young kids in Michigan how to be better football players.

Those are certainly some fighting words. If there’s one thing Harbaugh is good at, it’s teaching football players how to be better. Just look at what he did with the San Francisco 49ers. He turned that team from a laugher into one that made three NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl. He did the same thing while at Stanford as well. Thus, Mullen’s words don’t exactly make sense.
Moreover, look at the teams that have been coming out of the state of Michigan in recent years. Michigan State has become a defensive powerhouse under Mark Dantonio and while the Wolverines have struggled since Lloyd Carr’s retirement in 2007, Harbaugh at least deserves a fair chance before incurring the wrath of Mullen.
Mississippi State opens 2015 with a visit to Hattiesburg to play Southern Miss on September 5, while the Harbaugh Era begins on September 3 when Michigan plays Utah at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
