Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh is a notoriously difficult person to deal with.
He’s fond of talking trash, particularly to his rivals at Ohio State. He’s abrasive, sometimes prone to temper tantrums on the sideline. And he doesn’t like to disclose a lot of information about his team to the media.
The latest example? His refusal to release a depth chart ahead of the fourth-ranked Wolverines’ (2-0) game against Colorado (2-0) on Saturday.
When the Buffaloes learned they wouldn’t get Michigan’s depth chart, Colorado sports information director Dave Plati had some fun releasing his school’s own.
There are a million amazing things about this.
Six-foot-two senior Olive Oil is starting at one of the receiver spots, with 7-foot-6 Manute Bol backing her up in case Colorado needs someone to win a jump ball.
Colorado’s own Eric Cartman, listed at an imposing 3-foot-5, 190 pounds, is the starter at left guard.
The Buffaloes’ quarterbacks are Elmer Fudd (5’2”) and Danny DeVito (5’3”). Each might have a difficult time seeing over the offensive line.
And you can’t forget Bernie Sanders, the team’s starter at free safety. Look for him to light up an unsuspecting receiver going across the middle and celebrate the hit by yelling “FEEL THE BERN.”
The game, which is being played in Ann Arbor, Michigan, kicks off at 1:30 p.m. MT on the Big 10 Network.
