Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh reveals why he was arguing with ref after Nebraska’s first touchdown

On Saturday night, the Michigan Wolverines had their biggest test of the year when they took on the Nebraska Cornhuskers (and at times, the refs).

After Nebraska’s first touchdown of the game, which did not come until the third quarter, Wolverines’ head coach Jim Harbaugh was seen in a heated argument with the referee.

Following the game, Harbaugh explained why he was arguing.

From WolverinesWire:

“It was an illegal formation from what I saw on the field. I was wondering who they were putting on the line of scrimmage when they had five in the backfield and they told me the guy they put on the line of scrimmage. They said, ‘Well, he released on a pass!’ Anyway, that’s the way I saw it. It was either illegal that he was not on the line of scrimmage or, if that’s who they put, the No. 3 receiver on the line of scrimmage, he can’t release downfield on a pass. At that particular time, that’s what I was trying to argue about.”

The replay showed that Harbaugh’s eyes did not fail him, Nebraska absolutely was in an illegal formation.

  1. I’m not a media professional but If I wrote an article about a specific play that included 2 videos, I would make sure 1 of the 2 videos showed that fucking play.
