- This Weekend's Hot Clicks features a hilariously bizarre recruiting story from Kansas State, Jim Harbaugh makes a curious comment and Desmond Howard has some hot takes.
Mizzou’s shrewd move
"Listen, I know a couple coaches at Missouri. Let me call over there."
Mark Mangino was on this week’s podcast and told a hilariously bizarre recruiting story from his Kansas State days. Also, he talked about initially rejecting Kansas, leaving Lawrence in 2009, and college football rules he’d like to see changed. It’s available on Apple Podcasts, Spreaker and every other podcast app.
You’re wrong, Jim
"We've played a lot of young guys" is why Jim Harbaugh says Michigan hasn't overcome Ohio State/won a B1G title yet.— Dustin Schutte (@SchutteCFB) August 24, 2019
I think Jim Harbaugh has done a solid job at Michigan. He inherited a broken program with 20 wins over their last three seasons (and only two double-digit-win seasons from 2007-14) and delivered immediate Big Ten contention and 38 wins in his first four seasons. I don’t think he’s overrated.
However, this comment is pure garbage. Almost every key player from last year’s 62-point debacle was an upperclassman, including Shea Patterson, Rashan Gary, Karan Higdon, Chase Winovich, Devin Bush, Josh Metellus, Khaleke Hudson, Carlo Kamp, Lavert Hill...and several others.
Excuse me, Desmond?
The return of College GameDay was spectacular...except for one moment in which Desmond Howard stunned everyone with a baffling comment in response to Ohio State vs. Michigan talk.
I’m proud of this tweet
And hope Kevin McCallister is, too.
