According To Harbaugh
''It has no place in an athlete's body. Play by the rules,'' Harbaugh said of substances prohibited by the league. ''You always want to be above reproach, especially when you're good, because you don't want people to come back and say, 'They're winning because they're cheating.' That's always going to be a knee-jerk reaction in my experience, ever since I was a little kid. We want to be above reproach in everything and do everything by the rules. Because if you don't, if you cheat to win, then you've already lost, according to Bo Schembechler. And Bo Schembechler is about next to the word of God as you can get in my mind. It's not the word of God, but it's close.''

I'll always like Harbaugh, no matter what happened between UM and him when he was at Stanford. He loves Bo so much and really coaches the way Bo did/would.
Is that why Harbaugh waited until Bo was gone to make those comments?
Heh, exactly. Had to wait for the old man to kick before taking a flamethrower to the program he built.
I have a generally favorable opinion of Harbaugh, wanted him desperately after 2010...but he's still a big douche, at best.
Someone please tell me you have seen the ABadLipReading NFL version where Harbaugh sounds like a little girl yelling about his cake. I laughed so hard the first time I saw that.
Yeah, I saw that. That part was pretty funny. The entire video was actually pretty entertaining.
OK Jamie Morris. Settle down.
I'd say it's better than the "word of god" because it's actually directly attributable to an extant human being.
Nobody on this board can define the word regression.... but it sure gets used a lot.
I'm not so sure Harbaugh "loved" Bo at the time he played for him. I knew two guys who played for Bo and say they hated him. They would tell some crazy stories that I really can't remember the details of, but suffice it to say that Bo was very tough on his players. And as the starting qb, Harbaugh would've been at the center of Bo's attention (yikes). After all, remember who Bo's mentor was?
But I think now Harbaugh realizes Bo had to be tough and maybe grew to "love" him after leaving Michigan. That is what made Bo's teams so tough and made them push themselves and become winners. When Harbaugh quotes Bo and calls him "close to the word of god", he's paying respect to a legendary football coach and a man that greatly influenced him.
This is one of the reasons I kind of forgive Harbaugh's statements while at Stanford. If Bo had been the coach at Stanford, he'd have passionately hated every other school but Stanford.
