Thursday, it was reported that ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit's father, Jim Herbstreit, had passed away unexpectedly. Herbstreit had captained Ohio State's football team back in 1960 and later became an assistant coach for the program.

Friday, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh took to Twitter to publicly offer his condolences to Herbstreit and his family. It's obviously a classy move by the Wolverines headman.

Ohio State vs. Michigan is one of the best rivalries in sports, but sometimes it's nice to see the respect the players and coaches have for each other. Props to Harbaugh.
