SportsPressNW.com: Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh grabbed a figurative broom Monday morning and began sweeping out the tide. He released a statement pleading for the 2020 college football season to happen.
“I’m not advocating for football this fall because of my passion or our players’ desire to play but because of the facts accumulated over the last eight weeks since our players returned to campus on June 13,” he wrote. He went on to cite the fact that the Wolverines athletic department has had no positives among the latest 353 players, coaches and staffers tested.
The temptation is to ask Harbaugh the same question Pete Carroll asked of him years ago: “What’s your deal?” But I know his deal.
Preservation of the status quo. At all costs.
Jim Harbaugh wonders why we can't follow COVID-19 rules like Michigan. It's because kids are kids, and the football arms race is as out of control as the pandemic.
