Arizona State president pokes fun of Jim Harbaugh while discussing potential of adding Michigan to football schedule
Apparently taking a shot at Jim Harbaugh isn’t restricted to the state of Ohio or the Paul Finebaum Show anymore. Arizona State University President Michael Crow wanted to get in on the action.
This week, Crow conducted an interview with 98.7 FM Arizona Sports this week to talk about several topics relating to Sun Devils athletics. That discussion inevitably led to a talk about football, and the potential to add Michigan to a future schedule at some point down the road.
Crow confirmed during the interview that Arizona State is currently working Michigan to get something scheduled, though not many other details were provided. And while discussing that, the school president decided to take a jab at Harbaugh.
“Harbaugh, the coach at Michigan, he was the quarterback when ASU won the  Rose Bowl. I would love — before whatever happens to him, since he can’t beat Ohio State — I would love to see us now take him on and beat him as coach.”
That 0-5 record against Ohio State certainly has been the noticeable blemish for Harbaugh and the Wolverines. But, as head coach, Harbaugh has led the program to three 10-win seasons and five bowl games in as many years.
Until that record against Ohio State changes, shots are going to continue to be fired at Harbaugh and Michigan. Even if it comes from a Pac-12 school president.
