On Wednesday, Ohio State alum Cris Carter, who is a co-host on FS1’s First Things First, made a sorry attempt at convincing us that Jim Harbaugh was considering leaving Michigan for the NFL.
“Watch out for Jim Harbaugh,” Carter said. “Because Jim Harbaugh is potentially trying to get his way out of Michigan. I got good sources that are telling me not only Green Bay but watch out for the Cleveland Browns. He likes their quarterback situation’s there, and I believe there are front office people in Green Bay who are enamored with Jim Harbaugh trying to get him to come to Green Bay.”
This, of course, is something that has happened every single year since Harbaugh took over as head coach of the Wolverines and you can bet it will happen every year moving forward.
Well, Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel has a message for anyone out there who actually believes what Cris Carter is spewing from his pie hole. Manuel made the following comments on Wednesday to WTKA 1050’s The Michigan Insider.
“I would say consider the source of the comment,” Manuel said. “Cris is very accomplished in his life but he went to the school down south. We tend to throw out things like that, sources say, my sources, I haven’t missed any sleep. Jim has not said anything to me about it, he’s on the road recruiting putting in great effort. So, from my perspective, it has no validity at all. There’s been zero conversations about it. I believe Jim is very happy here, he is working to continue to bring in great recruits here. Preparing to go down to the bowl game at the Peach Bowl and play a very good Florida team.”
Ladies and gentleman, we cannot think for you, but here is some friendly advice. When an Ohio State man comments about something regarding anything to do with the University of Michigan, please consider the source. In this particular case, the source just so happens to be a Buckeye would is attempting to get people to watch his show.
