If you are a fan of college football, you have heard your fair share of criticism regarding Jim Harbaugh’s decision to take the Michigan Wolverines on the road during spring football.
As you would expect, Harbaugh has finally responded.
Harbaugh appeared on Wednesday morning’s edition of “Mike & Mike in the Morning” to discuss the criticism and he said that it was all nothing more than “fake outrage.”
“I thought it was fake outrage, it wasn’t really real,” Harbaugh said, via Mlive.com. “The moral high ground of the sanctify 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. … When did spring break become (something) we couldn’t all afford to miss?”
“It’s possible (the NCAA bans it). I don’t see what grounds (they could do it on). I would recommend it for other coaches.”
Harbaugh is right. Currently, he is doing nothing wrong. Harbaugh is playing by the laws, he just happens to go as he can without crossing the line. Now, rather than hitting Harbaugh with criticism, perhaps opposing coaches should try to follow his lead.
