Jim Harbaugh responded to Paul Finebaum’s comments.
Jim Harbaugh and Paul Finebaum have been going back and forth lately. The two just straight up don’t like each other.
It all started when Finebaum called out Harbaugh for hiring Michael Johnson, who’s son is the top quarterback recruit in the 2019 class. Well, that hire didn’t even end up happening as Johnson went to Oregon instead, but Harbaugh felt the need to respond.
Pete Finebaum, the unabashed SEC water carrier, really needs to get his facts straight. #AlternativeFacts

Finebaum didn’t take kindly to the shot from Harbaugh so he sent another across the Michigan coaches’ bow. On his show The Paul Finebaum Show, “Pete” called out the entire state of Michigan for being entitled.
Harbaugh elaborated on his tweet and addressed the tension with Finebaum on the “TK” podcast with Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, courtesy of Land of 10.
“They want to impune your integrity. They want to see you fail. They want to take shots at you,” Harbaugh said of people like Finebaum. “As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. You’re doing a good deed, you’re hiring somebody, and where do they go from there? Right to impuning your integrity by calling you a cheater.
“You take it with a grain of salt. But c’mon, man. I’m not going to let that go, either.”
Perhaps this is the last of the arguments between Harbaugh and Finebaum, but we certainly hope it’s not. This is too much fun to watch.
