Disappointed in Jim Harbaugh

When you're a cynic like me, and someone worth believing in finally comes along, it stings more than it should when that someone proves to be full of crap.

Jim Harbaugh is full of crap. And it stings. More than it should.

Here was a guy I believed in. Had he left Stanford for Florida, I'd have given the Gators a shot. Had he left for Michigan, I'd have rooted him on. Had he stayed at Stanford, I'd have applauded his loyalty and gumption.

But he's going to the NFL. To the Dolphins, according to a radio report in South Florida. He's grabbing the biggest buck he can find, which means he's nobody to believe in. He's just another greedy SOB. The world has lots of those. Now we get one more. Jim Harbaugh.

Depressing. I'm a college guy, so Harbaugh -- in college -- mattered to me. Now that he's become the latest college guy to bolt for the pro money, he doesn't matter to me. Not any more than any of those greedy SOB's matter to me.

As a college coach, he was a breath of fresh air. Cocky, smart, charismatic. A winner.

In the NFL, he'll be another suit on the sideline. That's his right. But it's my right to feel stung. And to wonder why I bother believing in any of these greedy sons of ...

Doyel is Pollyanna. The guy did a great job at Stanford, made them relevant, and now his is moving on. He did his job, now let him move on to a bigger, more lucrative challenge. Good for him. Doyel can be legit with this stuff about a Bob Huggins, who left K State after 1 year for West Virginia or a mercinary like Calipari, but Harbaugh is a different animal. He's earned the choice. You sound like a dope Greggie.

San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl next year?

If Pete Carroll can do it, why not Jim Harbaugh?  His brother John isn't a slouch either.

Mr. Doyel,

      
;     &nbs
p;    If you got your feelings hurt, It's your own fault. You were not paying attention.  Harbaugh coached like a predecessor: Spurrier. He ran up scores on teams when he did not have to. He made no apologies for it either; doesn't that sound like Spurrier? And you had no forboding?

Sure, the money is there and I suppose that is part of the reason to leave college and go Pro.  But for the sucessful  college coaches there has to be that "I proved I can do it in the college game, but can I in the Pro game" thought going thru their minds.  If a way you can't blame them, but why can't they just be happy where they are?  The rest of mankind does.  Plus, and this is more important, if a freshman player wants to change schools he can't, and if he does he sits a year.;  A high schooler sometimes goes to a college because of the coach, then the coach leaves, he is stuck.  All the fams ask is to just be a man about it, if you're going to go, or thnking of it, say it.  Don't lie to us and say you're not interested and then two days later tell us you're gone.

Nice face Doyel. Nice Face.

I'm sure if ESPN or Fox Sports came to Doyel and said, "Hey Gregg, we'll increase your annual income by 10x if you write your lame blogs on our site" that he would walk away. At the end of the day, most of us HJs (including myself) that work a desk job in a cube would be STUPID to turn down that kind of money, so we have no business criticizing.

Smarten Up Doyel, Smarten Up, you HJ.

Yeah, based on the premise he stated as to why Harbaugh is a greedy SOB, Doyel does seem somewhat contradictory suggesting that Luck should take the money and go the league. Don't get me wrong, I'm in complete agreement that Luck is making a mistake (even though I want him to stay as a fan). I just don't agree that Harbaugh would be wrong to take big NFL money.

Half the time, Doyel spews nonsense just for the sake of spewing nonsense. He's like The Naked Gun of sports journalism. Just a parody used to make fun of other sports journalists.

RedWings, I agree with most everything you said.  It's just funny that this clown Doyel still has a job.

I don't know which QB you were watching in the 90s, but you must either be blind or an idiot!  Jim Harbaugh was a STARTING QB in the NFL for 10 of his 14 NFL seasons, making the Pro Bowl once.  I think that completely differentiates him from being a clipboard holder, a la Tim Hasselbeck or Rex Grossman.

And it wasn't luck that that brought Luck to Harbaugh and Stanford- he recruited him.  Otherwise, I guess Saban was lucky to get Ingram and Jimmy Johnson was lucky to get Vinny Testaverde.  Plus, last I checked, football is a team sport, and Luck cannot carry the entire team and coaching staff.  Harbaugh is a very good coach with alot of experience and I can't wait for him to make you eat your uninformed, ignorant words.

Also, you're an idiot for agreeing with Doyel...

I expect Harbaugh to take the 49ers job. Let's see if any of these writers eat crow now that it's being reported the Dolphins have decided to stick with Sparano. This leaves nothing more than speculation that Harbaugh had any direct negotiations with Miami and broke the unwritten code of going after a current coach's job.
