Jim Harbaugh built a good football program in Ann Arbor over the course of four years. It remains well short of a great one, and deep down, he knows it.
Given the historical backdrop in Ann Arbor for what Bob Ufer described as “man’s inhumanity to man,” good isn’t good enough. Everybody knows that.
The Wolverines are beginning to make a habit of ending seasons by losing to Ohio State and then dropping a bowl game, sometimes in embarrassing fashion. Embarrassing, in this case, involves an 0-2 finish by a combined score of 103-54.
That’s sobering, no matter who leaves the stage early.
