Harbaugh: Probably more people want to see us fail than be great
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh appeared in a taped segment during Tuesday’s BTN Live show.
He didn’t shy away from giving his thoughts on preseason predictions and people who want to see the Wolverines struggle.
Harbaugh said he thinks there are “probably more people out there that would like to see us fail than would like to see us do great.”

As for the team’s status as a popular Big Ten champion or even playoff pick, Harbaugh said that won’t be a source of confidence — that comes from preparation.
“You never want to take anybody’s word for what you can do,” Harbaugh said.
The Wolverines coach didn’t share any starting QB news, instead saying they’re tracking everything, from scoring drives to first downs.
As for Jabrill Peppers, Harbaugh estimated Peppers could help the team in at least 12 of the 22 spots — and then went on naming special teams positions where Peppers could help.
For those hoping for an update on the suspended players and Harbaugh’s frustration with reporters and the questions about the suspensions, it’s necessary to note the segment was taped before he walked off.
