During his media availability yesterday, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about three players who were not present at the official team photoshoot earlier this month. What’s the deal with those guys? Are they suspended?
“Who’s got it better than us?” asks Bailey, a Bay Area rapper, as he cavorts about the Big House with Jim Harbaugh. The answer, of course, is Jim Harbaugh, winner of the “Most Insane Coach” award at the prestigious Deadspin Awards. He’s got it better than all of us.

Jim Harbaugh called into drive-time ratfuck Colin Cowherd’s radio show this morning for an interview, and it was spectacularly awful.
