Is Michigan Firing Jim Harbaugh This Week After Flopping vs Wisconsin?
Is Michigan firing Jim Harbaugh this week after flopping vs Wisconsin?
It is certainly a viable possibility.
Halfway through Saturday’s highly anticipated showdown between Wisconsin and Michigan, the Wolverines are trailing 28-0.
This outing at Camp Randall was essentially seen as a battle for who would sit alongside Ohio State atop the Big Ten, and it certainly looks like the answer is the Badgers.
It’s officially panic time for Michigan and the Jim Harbaugh era. Wolverines are getting bullied on both lines of scrimmage, offense looks completely lost, Don Brown’s mystique is gone. Massive problems for Michigan.

Wisconsin has essentially owned the line of scrimmage thus far and is ramming its running attack down the Wolverines’ throats.
Many, including former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, have cited this matchup as a “must-win” for Harbaugh.
“At some point it has to happen,” he said.
“They have to go on the road and they have to win as an underdog. I think this is a must-win game. They have to go to Madison and win today.”
This Wisconsin team is what I envisioned Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan teams looking like by year five. Now 21-0 Badgers.

If Michigan does not make a big comeback in the second half, it would not be particularly shocking to see Harbaugh get the boot sooner rather than later.
