Former Michigan Star Says It "Doesn't Matter" If Jim Harbaugh Is Fired

The Michigan Wolverines were spanked by Wisconsin last weekend in what was supposed to be a hard-fought battle between the two programs.

Jim Harbaugh's team was embarrassed on the national stage, which resulted in questions about Harbaugh's future with the program.

However, one former Michigan player thinks it doesn't matter who the coach is. Former star wide receiver Braylon Edwards called Michigan football "trash."

In a radio interview, Edwards suggested the program needs to change how it recruits:

"Stop trying to bring in kids that had a 1600 on the SAT. Let’s be honest, stop trying to bring in kids that come from two-parent homes and picket fences and got a dog named Fluffy and all that. You need to bring in some dogs. You need to bring in some kids that are hungry. You need to bring in some kids that need Michigan. Stop trying to bring in kids that don’t need Michigan."

Edwards made it clear that Michigan's woes aren't Harbaugh's fault - at least not via coaching.

The Wolverines consistently bring in top talent, but perhaps not the players Edwards is looking for.

This afternoon, Michigan faces off against Rutgers. The Wolverines should be able to get their mojo back after an embarrassing loss last weekend.
