FS1's Colin Cowherd has long been bullish on Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, but even he is starting to reconsider his opinion.

In the past, Cowherd has declared Harbaugh a "more impressive" coach than Nick Saban and defended his tenure at Michigan. Following today's loss to Michigan State, Cowherd seems to be changing his tune.

"Defending Jim Harbaugh is starting to feel like a losing proposition. #SpartyParty," Cowherd tweeted this afternoon.

The Wolverines lost 27-24 to the Spartans at home, despite being three-touchdown favorites. Harbaugh is in his sixth season at Michigan, but just lost to Mel Tucker, who is coaching his second game at Michigan State and 14th overall game as a college head coach.

Today's loss moved Jim Harbaugh to 3-3 against Michigan State. He is 3-2 against Penn State, and we all know he's yet to beat Ohio State.

Given the amount of resources Michigan has poured into the program and the amount of expectations heaped on Harbaugh's shoulders, it is understandable that he's feeling the heat right now.

If the Wolverines can't pick up a few more big wins in the coming weeks--or beat Ohio State to end the regular season--that heat is only going to intensify.
