Valenti: Harbaugh is the most overrated coach in America

You just knew that Detroit’s most outspoken radio personality would have something to say about what transpired at the Big House this past weekend!

97.1 The Ticket radio host and Michigan State alum Mike Valenti absolutely took Jim Harbaugh to task during the first segment of Monday afternoon’s show, officially declaring him to be the most overrated coach in college football today.

“The bottom line is this … You have the most overrated coach in America, I don’t give a damn what anybody says. This is year five … Year five. I’ve got no idea what it is you do. No idea where you hang your hat … and above all you’ve got a head coach in Jim Harbaugh who made two decisions that would have made Jim Caldwell blush.”

Speed and space? Space and speed? “My balls,” Valenti said. “Fourteen straight running plays, baffling decisions that made me question his competencies,” Valenti said, adding that if Mark Dantonio coached the same way as Harbaugh this weekend, “I would be screaming. They are fire able decisions.”
