It’s that time of year again!
You know, the time when the leaves have all fallen from the trees and we have already had our first snow of the season. Oh, and don’t let me forget, the rumors (and flat out lies) about Jim Harbaugh leaving the University of Michigan for the NFL.
Ever since Harbaugh back to coach at his alma mater, there has been speculation that he was just waiting for the right time to head back to the National Football League. He has been rumored to be the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, the Chicago Bears, and there were even some morons out there who thought he would take a job with the Detroit Lions!
Seriously, you cannot make this stuff up. Well, I guess some people can.
Of course, each and every one of those rumors was make-believe horseshit at best. Yet, whenever a rumor would come out, it spread like wildfire. Social media went crazy, local radio hosts like Mike Valenti wasted our time discussing it, and plenty of national sports shows such as First Take and Pardon the Interruption made sure to dig into it.
This time around it’s former NFL receiver and Ohio State alum Cris Carter who is blowing smoke out of his ass about Harbaugh potentially becoming the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers or the Cleveland Browns.
"I'm just gonna tell you guys a name: watch out for Jim Harbaugh, because he's potentially trying to get his way out of Michigan."

Carter, who is a personality on First Things First, claims he has sources who have told him Harbaugh is looking for a way out of Michigan and that he is interested in Green Bay or Cleveland as a potential landing spot.
Let me give you MY “First things first.” Number one, NEVER trust a Buckeye. Second, Jim Harbaugh is not leaving the University of Michigan anytime soon. He absolutely loves his current position (as HE has actually said multiple times) and it will be his position for as long as he wants it.
So, Nation. When you hear ass clowns like Cris Carter jump on the airwaves and throw shit they hope sticks, just remember: their main goal is to draw attention to their show, not to present facts or news.
