SPORTS GALORE: Michigan paying Jim Harbaugh to win

For the past 13 months, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh has produced a steady stream of headlines. Some of them are by his own doing and some of them are strictly due to the 24/7 media cycle, which includes social media. I’m actually surprised I haven’t read an update about what Harbaugh ate for breakfast yet today. The latest stream of headlines, with signing day just five days away, has to do with the flow of Michigan graduate transfers, decommitting/committing recruits and the “evil” that is Jim Harbaugh.
