Because like Ohio St is trying so hard to be Michigan, Michigan is trying hard not to be Ohio St. They do not want to admit it bugs them. Maybe and likely it doesn't bug them. They do not see sports the same way as Ohio St where sports drives the school. At Michigan, academics still drives the school. It's mostly the country club set, not the academic set that gets upset about losing to OSU. At least that's my limited experience with the school. If OSU passed them on the academic rankings then they'd get riled.I really have no dog in this fight but why does Harbaugh get a pass? One of the highest paid coaches in the country and he has not produced. UM has had talent too. People believing there was a talent shortage are wrong. It is equally as bad to blame and fire coordinators. Those are Harbaugh's hires.
At least the new OC is the best they have had of the last three. They ran off Mattison and Washington.
And the excuse that no one else wants so the job so keep Harbaugh is utter BS. There are a bunch of really good coaches who would take the UM job and out perform Harbaugh.
Chew on this, Harbaugh's best team was with Hoke talent. I think the guy is a joke and I completely get why the OSU fans want him staying around.
