I'm so glad that someone else thought the same damn thing. He's tone deaf to the world.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

It sounded like Tim May asked him if he was "poking the bear."  And Harbaugh turns around and says, "I don't make animal analogies??"  Holy crap what an idiot. lol 

Thank you Urban Meyer and Gene Smith

Sounded like Tim asked him, yes.

Agreed Urbz, when I first read the animal analogies quote I immediately thought of 3 or 4 of those and knew there had to be more. What an imbecile.

I think he just meant he's not into large predatory mammal analogies (i.e. bears).  All other vertebrates are ok.

I'll go ahead and move this away from OSU Football, but have a feeling the thread won't last too long regardless.

I can get behind a lot of what you're saying, but I really like hot dogs and sandwiches.

HS

What do you mean "and"? Hot dogs are sandwiches.

Only Harbaugh would eat hot dogs with a fork and knife.

What about skyline chili dogs? You lose half the meal if you try to eat with your hands. You have to use a fork and knife.

people always say the bread has to be in two different halves to be a sandwich... but Subway doesn't cut all the way through their bread. And their employees are called sandwich artist... take that haters. Hotdogs on a bun are sandwiches.

"Limiting the hot dog's significance by saying it's 'just a sandwich' is like calling the Dalai Lama 'just a guy.''

But Harbaugh is our go-to when the well is dry?

He is the super troll. All sound bytes and hot takes, but not much of substance on the field...

The comment I posted about is pretty significant because of how contradictory it is.  Is there a coach who has made more animal analogy quotes?

I wouldn't have cared about Harbaugh had he not trashed our former coach.  His response to the question makes this a topic of relevance.

Thank you Urban Meyer and Gene Smith

When he said that, I immediately thought of the chicken is a nervous bird story. But the best part about that one is that it isn't an analogy. He literally meant, chickens are a nervous bird and if you eat it those nervous enzymes (or whatever) will infect your brain.

He's not into analogies about poking the bear, especially after he just poked the bear.

Could we have a moratorium on any photos of Harbaugh except on the sideline during a game? Having his photo appear on 11W is like defacing the Mona Lisa.

I wish I could post the photo of the Mona Lisa when Mr. Bean defaces it. The defaced version reminds me or Harbaugh.

Harbaugh seems to be on the autism spectrum.  This is not a dis - heck, even Bill Gates is there.  I have friends who are there as well.  It just seems that he does not read emotion into any situation.  This seemed to be on full display in Chicago. The statements he made about mental health are right there with his dis of Meyer.  He makes statements that appear awkward to many, and does not see the awkwardness himself.  It could me the reason that everyone with the 49ers thought he was bat shit crazy.

I don't know, when he broke that headset there seemed to be a bit of emotion in that situation.

They can display emotion themselves, often through tantrums, like the headset thing.  However they have a very difficult time discerning emotion in others (happy, sad, angry, humor).  As well as not understanding why anyone would have a reaction to what they say.

Great observation, Hnyg8modonwelfare.  It's gotten to the point where I just look at it this way:

Thought you guys might like this.  If you follow football outside the BIG, you will know there are other coaches who are more bizarre than J.H. This guy is truly the top coach clown, there are even quotes about fish!   Enjoy!

What we really needed to do for our 10th coach was write Leach a blank check.  I don't care what you call his position.  "Main Man," "Biggest Nut" or whatever.  All I know is that Day (and Urban before him) can keep the HC title, but Leach should do EVERY presser and interview.  He's the best quote in sports, forget football...in all of sports.

Side benefit: Everyone would be like "Harbaugh is such a shallow, pathetic, wannabe imitation of Leach it isn't even funnny."

Crazy thing is he said this when literally he had just made an animal analogy earlier in his presser.  The guy is unreal.
