There's no doubt that were we writing in a bygone era, the football world's most desirable object of lust, Jim Harbaugh, would be described as the prettiest girl at the coaching cotillion. This being the year 2011, though, cotillions are out and reality TV is in, meaning that it was only a matter of time before somone -- in this case, Tauntr.com -- came up with something like this:
Jesse Palmer , eat your heart out. ("You all have a lot of money to offer?" If you have seen even one episode of The Bachelor --and it's not something we recommend -- you will recognize that line as unqualified genius.) We'd say the image of Dave Brandon in a cocktail dress would be enough to send Michigan fans running for the eye bleach, but the last few days have probably been enough to drive Wolverine supporters past the point of being surprised by anything.
If there's one other thing The Bachelor and the Harbaugh frenzy have in common, it's this: it's a sure bet the producers at its heart still have a twist or two coming down the stretch. We're all staying tuned.
HT: NBCSports . And it's about an ABC show. Maybe this post was a bad idea.
