Jim Harbaugh praises entire roster for being 'locked in on their football' vs. Nebraska
Jim Harbaugh has seen his fair share of complete performances during his tenure as Michigan’s head coach. Saturday’s win against Nebraska — including a 28-0 start to the first half — might rank among the best.
During his postgame press conference, Harbaugh was asked for his opinion about the game in Lincoln being a complete game by the Wolverines. He admitted the team came in focused on their football and the end result was impressive to watch in all faces.
It started right away with the impressive opening drive:

“Pretty darn high. The guys did a tremendous job, just so focused on their football. It was important. Important task, critical to come in here on the road and play good football. I thought our guys did that and then some in all phases,” said Harbaugh. “Can’t start a game better than we did today, taking the openening drive and tremendous play by Roman Wilson, JJ (McCarthy). What a catch that was. The guys up in the press box were telling me just how good a catch it was.”
Harbaugh went on to say every guy coming out of the locker room should feel good about his play. Michigan will remain humble and focused for a road trip against Minnesota, but the Week 5 win was nearly flawless.
“About every guy walking out of that locker room right now, even though they’re walking out with humble hearts because we’ve got to go on the road again next week, but feeling good about themselves and the way they played,” Harbaugh explained. “I thought just every single guy. No penalties, no turnovers. For the most part they really played their assignments, were locked in on their football.”
We’ll see if the Wolverines can follow that up with another road test next week.
