Just some thoughts that I got from my MSU loving wife who doesn't really follow Michigan too much. Her opinion was that he seemed to be really genuine and humble in the moment, he seemed nervous which she thought showed the importance of the moment for him, and he was funny. She thought he was well spoken and gave him props for calling out and recognizing th Michigan Daily reporter that was at the airport the previous night for his arrival. Her response was "wow, that was a pretty big platform for him to recognize that kid. That was nice of him." That kid now gets to go into job interviews as the kid that Jim Harbaugh called a go getter to a national audience.
Now after the interview I made sure to let her know that Harbaugh is not known for being humble. Her response "Well, of course he isn't, he's a head coach and they are all assholes. You have to be to get to that level, but that doesn't mean they can't be humbled by a moment too."
Just thought her input was interesting since it came from someone who loves MSU.
As for me, I kept looking for some of his bravado. Some sort of sound bite to get me pumped up. But when it didn't come, when he didn't give his "this is Michigan" moment like Hoke, at a certain point I actually am glad he didn't. Sound bites work for the press, but they don't win games. I'm rather happy with how he did and just want him to get down to business, get his staff in, pull in some new recruits, and start building a team with the players.
