Jim Harbaugh, Ryan Walters share extremely brief postgame handshake in Week 10
Jim Harbaugh and Ryan Walters squared off Saturday night as Michigan and Purdue battled it out in Ann Arbor. It was the first game between the two sides since the start of the NCAA’s sign-stealing investigation into Harbaugh’s program.
Walters finally shed a bit of light on his true feelings about the investigation during his weekly radio show. According to Walters the allegations directed at the Wolverines “aren’t allegations” because of video evidence and a ticket trail trail left behind by Connor Stalions.
In the end, Michigan rolled to a big win at home Saturday night. As is customary, the two head coaches met at midfield for a postgame handshake.

While Walters did venture out for the handshake, he appeared to never break stride and kept right on moving. Some noted the handshake looked extremely brief and cold between the two coaches.

For what it’s worth, Harbaugh was asked about the brief exchange after the game. While it might have appeared odd, Harbaugh was in no mood to say anything out of the ordinary, referring to the moment as “typical” of postgame handshakes.
