Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh heard your dirty chants, Michigan State fans.
“Yeah, I heard it. I heard it. I thought it was really great and classy. I thought they were saying ‘Love Jim Harbaugh,’ ” Harbaugh said. “And they kept repeating it: ‘Love Jim Harbaugh, Love Jim Harbaugh.’ I said ‘wow, that’s some great sportsmanship here by the Michigan State Spartans.’ ”They weren’t, of course.
“Then the next day I read ESPN and they were saying, I guess it was ‘Frick Jim Harbaugh’ with (another word) there,” he continued. “I guess I have to get my hearing checked.”
Of course, Harbaugh knew exactly what Michigan State fans were saying. But, when you’re 8-0 and ranked No. 2 in the country, everything sounds like music to your ears.
