Paul Finebaum Says Jim Harbaugh Still Has Not Lived Up To Expectations

first_imgPaul Finebaum makes comments about roy Williams.Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Paul Finebaum is criticizing Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh for not living up to the hype.Finebaum has put Harbaugh on blast multiple times in the past, most recently after this season’s Week 1 loss to Notre Dame. Today, he called the coach out during an appearance on ESPN’s First Take with Stephen A. Smith.Asked by Smith about college coaches who have not lived up to expectations, Finebaum paused briefly and then said Harbaugh is probably the one who has underachieved the most.“I think it’s probably Harbaugh,” Finebaum said.. “I was flying up to Connecticut (ESPN) on Saturday and the only game on was Michigan-Northwestern. I watched the last quarter of that game. It was one of the worst football games I have ever seen.“There’s not much else to do on a plane, but it was unwatchable. Jim Harbaugh just can not develop an offense. Having said that, he’s probably going to end up with a pretty good record this year.”Finebaum also mentioned Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly as someone he thought was in trouble a year ago but has rebounded. He added that Texas’ Tom Herman “is going to have to beat someone” but is “doing better than it looks.”It seems like the only thing that Harbaugh can do to impress Finebuam would be to win a title of some sorts, either the Big Ten or the national title.The Wolverines still have a shot at the former, but the latter will be tough to attain this year as they already have a loss on their resume.last_img read more
