Disappointed in Jim Harbaugh

Posted on: January 6, 2011 4:37 pm
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 ...

Wow Da_Mike............I don't ever remembering Harbaugh excelling as a QB..........At best he was a good clipboard holder......Not saying he isn't a good coach but he got lucky to get a real Qb like Luck who made him look better than he is.........You watch........Dolphins will give him his money and after a couple 4-12 seasons they will be looking for a new coach.........I have know problem with someone getting theirs when they can but this guy is so overrated it is not funny........And for what it's worth i disagree with Doyel a lot but he in right on with this one.........

Totally agree..........They (the dolphins) should be nailed for publicly going after another coach while they still have one.........Sparano should quit now and tell them to go f** themselves and i would hope they don't get Harbaugh and leave them hanging.........Harbaugh has no class for talking to them when they have a coach and they have no class for what they are doing........At least Andrew Luck has some class.........Maybe he should teach some to his former coach............

I can't believe what an idiot Doyel is.  All you think about Harbaugh making the jump to the NFL is greed, huh?  So I take it every single college coach who takes an NFL job is doing it only for the money?  I guess it couldn't be to prove that he can do it on the next level, make that career jump, become the best coach he can possibly be?  To coach on the biggest stage, in the sport he once excelled as a QB? 

I think if you ever take a job working for a big city newspaper we'll be depressed, say you're full of crap and wonder why I believe in a greedy son of a ..... like you.  Oh, wait, that'll never happen.  Because you suck as a writer.

Doyel is just jealous that in his entire life, like the rest of us....he will not make as much money as Harbaugh will on this one contract.

I would also like to see Jim Harbaugh stay in college, but it's hard to turn down an additional $5 MM per year.  Can't blame him for taking the money now - he may never be this hot a commodity again. 

Maybe he'll prefer the Pro game, too.  He can always go back to school.  It worked out for Pete Carroll.
