Earlier this week, the Colorado Buffaloes jokingly released a depth chart for the Michigan Wolverines, who they play this week in Ann Arbor. The Buffs did so because head coach Jim Harbaugh doesn’t release depth charts to the public.
Harbaugh joined 97.1 FM in Detroit on Thursday and commended the Buffaloes as being “a very good football team.” However, he didn’t seem to be too impressed by their joke earlier this week.
“I saw the depth chart,” Harbaugh said. “I was trying to imagine how many people sat around and how many hours they worked on that. We’ve just found, I mean, when it comes to the depth chart — modern technology seems to have made the depth chart an out-dated task by about 20 years.
“We’ve found studying last week’s film of the opponent is the most accurate way of determining another team’s depth chart.”
To me, that didn’t seem like a very Jim Harbaugh-like answer. However, when it comes to a big game like this, you would expect a coach to take things very seriously, even one with a demeanor like Harbaugh.
Whatever the case, the Buffaloes only seemed to annoy Harbaugh and you can bet the Wolverines will be ready to let them have it this weekend. The teams face off at The Big House on 3:30 p.m. EST on Big Ten Network.
