Jim Harbaugh doesn't want players making guarantees like his
Thirty years ago, Jim Harbaugh guaranteed that his Wolverines would knock off Ohio State.
He lived up to his word, and heard about it a million times since he made that bold call.
The same has been true for Harbaugh all week. Already, he’s been asked several times about his decision to guarantee a win 30 years ago.
So would Harbaugh recommend his players follow in his footsteps? Not exactly.
Harbaugh, asked by Tim May about his 1986 guarantee of Michigan win over OSU, says, "Having done it, I don't recommend it."

That’s spoken like someone already sick of talking about talk.
Harbaugh was about as vague as possible during the B1G teleconference on Tuesday. There weren’t anything close to guarantees. That’s the last thing you’d expect to hear from a Michigan player during the week.
Urban Meyer offered up nothing but respect during his Monday availability, as well. If there has been any boasting, it’s been behind closed doors.
Will there be a lack of boasting around 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday? Probably not.
