Colorado Mocks Harbaugh Before Their Game Saturday

Jim Harbaugh has become notorious for his pre-game treatment of opponents, namely his refusal to give Hawaii practice film before their season opener and his refusal to release a depth chart before each game.

Well, the Colorado coaching staff isn't having it. Before their match-up this week agianst Michigan, the Buffaloes released a fake depth chart to make fun of Harbaugh's not releasing one. The chart, shown below, feature all different kinds of people -- none of whom are football players. My personal favorites include Danny DeVito, listed as QB2, and Squint Palledorous at back-up placekicker. This is a hilarious mockery of Harbaugh's pre-game routine and an unprecedented step by an opponent to get in Michigan's head.

This comes on the heels of Harbaugh having to deal with the fallout of him being caught on camera and eating his booger (video and Harbaugh quote are below). He has avidly denied it, but the incident has still managed to dominate storylines.

Listen, this whole thing is not a big deal. It's funny, and I bet a lot of people in Ann Arbor got a big laugh out of it. However, I doubt Harbaugh was one of those people. I'm really looking forward to seeing how he interacts with the Colorado coaching staff, especially after they put up 54 points and dominate Buffaloes for four quarters. Harbaugh is someone you just don't mess with before a game. The man is a football machine, and when he is in game mode, I don't think he has any regard for anything but winning. He may kick onside to start the game, go for 2 points every time, and try to put up 100. Not a good career move for the Colorado staff. They are going to get blitzed to shit and I wouldn't expect a handshake at the end of the game.
