Jim Harbaugh has hilarious response when asked about Hassan Haskins' stellar run vs. Northwestern
Michigan is 7-0 4-0 in B1G play and the No. 6 team in the country. Michigan blew out Northwestern 33-7 last Saturday afternoon.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh spoke on his radio show about his offensive line and RB Hassan Haskins in a particular play on Saturday. When a run appeared to be stopped for about a 2-yard gain, Haskins kept driving his legs and was able to move a sizeable pile across the 1st down marker.
Harbaugh had an odd way of talking about the run. Angelique of the Detroit News provides more context:

“I told the guys in the O-line room, they should get a GIF, it’s a GIF right? You know what I mean? Graphic Image Formatting or something like that,” Harbaugh said. “That got everybody going. Got the fans going, got the team going, coaches going, everybody.
“I watched it a half dozen times just chuckling like the dickens. It was fun to watch and something that sparked us.”
Here is the play Harbaugh is referring to:
