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 ...

Timing is everything and right now Harbaugh is on fire. Is he worth that much....I don't think so but it is the Dolphins who are offering it. The Dolphin organization should be reprimanded for not following the Rooney rule and what they are doing to Sparano is terrible.

His respect the game was meant as respect the game that was just played.  He wanted to make the press conference about the guys on the field and not about himself.  Don't understand why you are ripping a guy from making the moment about the team that had just one the Orange Bowl and not about him and what team he may or may not be coaching next year.  Thought what he did was classy and respectful of the university.  I personally don't think he is worth 7mil but like you how can he not turn it down?

1) Some people happen to like pro football better than college football.

2) He gets more cash AND doesn't have to deal with 8 billion NCAA rules and regulations

Doyel you are full of sh*t if ESPN offered to double your salary you would be gone. This is one of the few times i don't agree with you but when you have a chance to make the money he is going to in this economy he would be dumb not to take it.

So you want Luck to take his millions before he wants to, but Harbaugh can't chase his dream to be in the NFL. I agree with most of your posts, but think they both deserve to do what they want even if they aren't the smartest decisions.

I don't really care that Harbaugh is a giant prostitute. If you offer me $8 million a year, I'd take it. What bothers me is his self-righteous "respect the game" nonsense when questions about his future were asked after the Orange Bowl. He respected the game and what his kids did so much that he was out chasing a dime twelve hours later. This guy is a headcase, Miami. Be careful what you wish for.
