The feud between Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and Paul Finebaum just won’t end.
Hours after Harbaugh accused the ESPN radio host of wanting to see him fail, Finebaum responded on his radio show, saying, “Jim, coach your team, OK. I mean, quit choking away games at the end of the season like you did last year, three out of the last four. Come on. I’m busy. I’ve got a job.”

The back and forth between Harbaugh and Finebaum began earlier this month when Harbaugh accused “Pete Finebaum” of being biased toward the SEC. Finebaum responded by changing the logo of his show to say “Pete Finebaum,” as a joke at Harbaugh’s expense.
Harbaugh took the chance to respond Thursday on the “TK Show” podcast with Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News.
“They want to impugn your integrity. They want to see you fail. They want to take shots at you,” Harbaugh said of people like Finebaum. “As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. You’re doing a good deed, you’re hiring somebody, and where do they go from there? Right to impugning your integrity by calling you a cheater.
“You take it with a grain of salt. But c’mon, man. I’m not going to let that go, either.”
We’ll see if Harbaugh fires back at Finebaum or if he takes the host’s advice to stop talking about him.
