Colin Cowherd argues that Jim Harbaugh's resume is 'far more impressive' than Nick Saban's
Sometimes the shock value just draws you in. Maybe you don’t believe a statement, but it caught your attention anyway.
FOX Sports radio host Colin Cowherd had one of those moments recently, saying something that almost nobody would believe. On his radio show, Cowherd said he could “male an argument that Jim Harbaugh’s résumé is far more impressive than Nick Saban’s.”
The statement is similar to something another FOX Sports personality, Skip Bayless, said he believed that Harbaugh was also a better head coach than Saban.
Let’s just get this out of the way: Harbaugh is not the better coach.
Yes, Harbaugh has had an incredible amount of success in his coaching career, both at the college and NFL level. However, Saban has won six national championships. Harbaugh hasn’t won a conference title.
Harbaugh could really get the ball rolling at Michigan and maybe rattle off a few conference championships. Perhaps he’ll have the Wolverines competing for a national title. Harbaugh becoming one of the elite coaches in college football isn’t a far-fetched statement.
Putting him in the same category as Saban? Yeah, that’s just a little out there at this point in time.
Here’s the full clip of Cowherd’s statement on Harbaugh and Saban.
