Harbaugh To KU?
2 Sources have told 610 Sports Radio that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, Stanford Coach Jim Harbaugh will fly to Lawrence following Saturday's Heisman Trophy Ceremony to accept the deal to be the new Kansas Head Coach. He's expected to have an annual salary of $2.7 million a year. In a statement, KU Athletic Director Lew Perkins said that the process is "ongoing" and "We have not offered the Head Coaching position to anyone." Stay tuned to 610 Sports Radio for more on this developing story.
Overall Big Game impression: As entertaining as any collegiate game played this season. It's just too bad that Harbaugh acted like a punk - for the second straight week. Maybe some people enjoyed his attempt at a two-point conversion with a 48-21 lead over USC, but there's no excusing his postgame "handshake" with Tedford. Not bothering to slow down, Harbaugh barely touched Tedford's hand, didn't even look at him, and hurried on. That's just weak.
Carroll reiterated that he was not angry about Harbaugh's two-point conversion decision.
But when asked whether he would remember it down the line, Carroll paused, grinned and walked away without comment.
7. I don’t know why Stanford’s Jim Harbaugh decided to run it up on USC. I know that USC’s Pete Carroll has bullied some teams in the Pac 10 through the years, and we know what they say about payback. But Harbaugh is building a good program at Stanford. This was a great victory for his team. Why not stay above the usual nonsense and win with class? By needlessly going for a 2-pt conversion in a 55-21 blowout, Harbaugh took the focus off Stanford’s magnificent performance at USC. Instead, writers and pundits and fans and talking heads are yapping about that in-your-face conversion.
