Jim Harbaugh Is Getting Trashed For Taking Timeouts At The End Of His Team’s Orange Bowl Loss

first_imgHead coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines looks on during warmups before the college football game against the Florida Gators.ARLINGTON, TX – SEPTEMBER 02: Head coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines looks on during warmups before the college football game against the Florida Gators at AT&T Stadium on September 2, 2017 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)Jim Harbaugh is going to catch some heat for the way the Orange Bowl ended Friday night.Friday night, the college football world was treated to a fantastic Orange Bowl contest, which featured an incredible comeback by Michigan that almost resulted in a Wolverines victory. But Florida State, behind some late heroics, prevailed, 33-32, sending Michigan to its third loss in its last four games. Jim Harbaugh’s decision in the game’s final minute will be what’s talked about most, though.After Michigan’s final drive ended with quarterback Wilton Speight throwing an interception, Florida State took over with 32 seconds to play. Instead of letting the Seminoles kneel the ball down once to run out the clock, Harbaugh used his final two timeouts. Florida State had to kneel the ball three times – despite Michigan having no real way of extending the game.Harbaugh is getting trashed for the decision:Leave it up to Jim Harbaugh to call a timeout when he can’t win. Big ol’ baby.— Spartan Avenue (@SpartanAvenueFS) December 31, 2016Jim Harbaugh calling timeout is just amazing.— Ari Wasserman (@AriWasserman) December 31, 2016Harbaugh took a timeout LOLOLOL what a tool.— Bandit (@banditref) December 31, 2016Seriously Jim Harbaugh? Calling timeout? Why? Typical crap that Harbaugh does.— Jason Page (@TheBackPage) December 31, 2016I was about to tweet about Harbaugh calling a meaningless timeout but my phone autocorrected to “garbage.” Enough said.— Sean Neal (@realseanneal) December 31, 2016Harbaugh calling a timeout after the kneel is NFL level petty. #GONOLES— Chocolate Thundara (@XYCromerSome) December 31, 2016Harbaugh with the timeout at the end?! Salty much?— Luke Combs (@LukeCombsMusic) December 31, 2016What Harbaugh did is certainly unorthodox, but is it wrong? Expect that to be debated heavily in the coming days.last_img read more

Zach Smith Calls Out Brett McMurphy, Paul Finebaum On Twitter

first_imgzach smith gives an interview on espnZach Smith has been relatively quiet on social media following his dismissal from Ohio State and the subsequent suspensions of Urban Meyer and Gene Smith. Smith did drop some thoughts immediately after Meyer was punished, but has kept a low-profile overall.Well, that seems to be changing. Smith took to Twitter today to call out Stadium reporter Brett McMurphy and ESPN radio personality Paul Finebaum for their reporting and analysis.“Silence = over. I tried. But I cant watch [clowns] like @Brett_McMurphy @finebaum & others at @espn continue 2 run their mouths-not only w/o knowledge but w/ complete disregard 4 my children,” Smith tweeted. “Their mother had plenty of disregard 4 them in this. Time 4 u all 2 face the damage ur causing.”Smith also linked to a lengthy Facebook post from his mother Lynn Bruce in which she calls out Urban Meyer for not doing more to defend her son publicly.Hey @Brett_McMurphy – Ready to start being a real journalist? Ya know… vetting a story?Oh… no… you don’t know what I mean. Sorry!https://t.co/1skw7lSDBl— Zach Smith (@CoachZachSmith) August 29, 2018Silence = over. I tried. But I cant watch ? like @Brett_McMurphy @finebaum & others at @espn continue 2 run their mouths-not only w/o knowledge but w/ complete disregard 4 my children. Their mother had plenty of disregard 4 them in this. Time 4 u all 2 face the damage ur causing— Zach Smith (@CoachZachSmith) August 29, 2018Hey @Brett_McMurphy @finebaum & EVERYONE @espn – Look at these faces. You heartless and moral-less clowns. Every LIE or dramatic version of the truth you report, you hurt THESE precious children! Just like their mom has and continues to. Do you have families? Kids? pic.twitter.com/9XyIhKrGzx— Zach Smith (@CoachZachSmith) August 29, 2018Smith probably doesn’t do himself (or anyone else) much good by opening his mouth on social media.However, he doesn’t seem to want to hold back anymore.Update: Smith is still going.  He even hit McMurphy with a “I’ll see you in court.”Not a shield. A reminder to scum like you that your reckless & complete disregard for human beings hurts innocent children. Sorry you viewed it as a shield-but that further proves your ignorance given to you by a laminated piece of cardboard hung around your neck by a lanyard. https://t.co/OyDR8PX42z— Zach Smith (@CoachZachSmith) August 29, 2018Hey @Brett_McMurphy – quick few questions… because you’re an OUTSTANDING “journalist”1. How’d you get that interview with @CoachTomHerman as your first interview at @WatchStadium?2. How come you didn’t ask him about the alleged strip club incident that you reported about?— Zach Smith (@CoachZachSmith) August 29, 2018Furthermore… @Brett_McMurphy3. Did you ask him about the ensuing few days?4. Have you vetted any credibility in ANY of your reports?I am waiting for one thing that is accurate beyond a name change or photoshop session. I will see you in court you clown.— Zach Smith (@CoachZachSmith) August 29, 2018Oh boy.last_img read more

(Photo by Tim Warner/Getty Images)With the holidays upon us, bowl season is set to heat up big time over the next week. On New Year’s Day, Georgia vs. Texas is set to go down at the Sugar Bowl.The two teams will meet for the first time since 1984 in New Orleans.Texas is having its best season in a long time, but the SEC East champion Bulldogs are heavy favorites in the match-up.Per OddsShark, the line opened at Georgia -11.5. It has only climbed from there, in favor of the Dawgs.Most sportsbooks now have things at Georgia at -13 or so as of this writing.Texas has impressed in 2018, but Georgia is coming off of an SEC title game in which it went toe-to-toe with Alabama. Considering many thought UGA proved that it was a top four-caliber team in that loss, the line isn’t too surprising.59-percent of bets have been laid on the Dawgs, per OddsShark.As for winning the game outright, ESPN’s Football Power Index gives Georgia a better than 77-percent chance of winning the New Year’s Day Game.That number sites at 77.4-percent right now.
