On Thursday afternoon, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh met with the media ahead of the College Football Playoff.

The Wolverines are gearing up for a battle against the TCU Horned Frogs. Before the action kicks off, though, the unique head coach spent a few moments talking about the game.

Well, the game and a few other things. During the press conference, Harbaugh revealed his favorite show right now - and gave reporters a treat.

Like a true head coach, Harbaugh revealed he's loving Ted Lasso right now, but also offered another. After naming a current show, he threw it back for the second: The Rockford Files.

Fans couldn't get enough of his answer.

"Possibly the only time these shows have been mentioned in subsequent sentences," sports reporter Andrew Bucholtz noted.

"This is the least likable program in the history of the world," another fan joked about Harbaugh and Michigan.

"we as a nation cannot afford to have this man win a natty," joked a third.

Michigan and TCU face off on Saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
