Google Jim Harbaugh and "total crap," and his 0-4 record against Ohio State does not immediately pop up.
Nope, Harbaugh opted to go on the offensive after FootballScoop.com said he's eyeing an "exit strategy" from Michigan to the NFL.
Harbaugh, apparently the only coach in America dealing with internet rumors, decided to write a letter to the parents of current players and recruits that said in part: "I am reaching out to let you know that the recent claims that I am 'pursuing an exit strategy' are total crap. It's an annual strategy driven by our enemies to cause disruption to our program and to negatively recruit."
Wouldn't it make more sense for Michigan's "enemies" to use Harbaugh's lack of Big Ten titles or his 0-8 record as an underdog to negatively recruit?
