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 ...

So to get this straight...Luck staying in college to get his degree is bad because he'll be passing up millions.  Harbaugh going to the NFL, so he isnt passing up millions, is also bad.  So you WANT Luck to be a greedy SOB, but not Harbaugh.  That makes plenty of sense.

Are you mad when college players get drafted into the NFL for the sole purpose of money? I mean who really gets a degree in "Health and Fitness" so they can be a health and fitness'er? No they get these bogus degrees so the college system doesn't seem flawed when it makes them attend classes (on a part time basis) to earn their degree. 
So whats the difference with coaches leaving college? He was at Stanford for however long he was there (I don't follow college so it could have been 1 year or 50 years) and now he is moving on. I say good for him. He is not going to make as much money per year as 95% of the players he is coaching anyways so take what you can get while your a hot commodity!
