Jim Harbaugh has received a lot of criticism this year for his shortcomings at Michigan. With the first two months of the season almost over, there already rumors about him potentially leaving Ann Arbor for the NFL.

The Wolverines own a 5-2 record as they near the end of October. Last Saturday, the program suffered a devastating loss to Penn State on the road.

Critics have bashed Harbaugh for losing multiple games this season, but FS1 radio host Colin Cowherd is taking a different approach.

On Wednesday, Cowherd tweeted that Harbaugh's biggest issue is that people hold him to an extremely high standard. Instead of comparing him to legendary Ohio State coaches, the public should lower their expectations.

"Michigan isn’t OSU," Cowherd wrote on Twitter. "We’re holding Harbaugh to a Buckeye standard. They are not."

Here is the full post from Cowherd:

Cowherd has defended Harbaugh multiple times over the years. His stance has changed in recent weeks, especially after Michigan was blown out by Wisconsin.

Now that rumors are swirling about a potential "exit strategy" for Harbaugh, it's fair to wonder if the rest of this season will dictate whether or not he stays with the Wolverines.

Michigan will try to bounce back this weekend when it hosts Notre Dame.
