Jim Harbaugh is a smokeless tobacco user, and he apparently doesn’t hide his habit from prospective players.

“According to Stanford assistant coach Ron Lynn, “it was not beyond him to take off his shoes” in a recruit’s living room and ask for a spittoon.”

Coach Harbaugh dips on camera during games with an intensity unknown to mankind.  His tobacco packed lips have even fielded comments from my wife (though she has become proficient spotting lippers by looking at my fishing trip photos).

The Big Js need anything they can get their hands on this time of year. They have editors telling them to come up with anything to keep the machine chugging along.

Today Jim is in Paris taking in the sights. Summer is about to start. He finally has his transfer quarterback savior. He has seven home games, barely has to travel this season and one trip to Ohio State on November 24.

Press conference 

In the minutes following the game, Jim Harbaugh gave his customary postgame press conference. It was briefly interrupted by Athletic Director Warde Manuel, who issued a statement about the fight. 

Yeah, we had all-out blitz pressure, and we were able to get home from the edges and get them stopped in the backfield. Those were critical stops — turnover on downs twice there in the first half. Especially when they got inside of our 10-yard line and came away with no points. That was a huge stop. 

And the stops throughout the game. Really the key to the game was the way our defense played, on third down especially. The three and outs in the second half, the third down stops, just outstanding job by our defense.

Two of our players were assaulted. We saw the one video. It’s ten-on-one. Pretty bad. I’m gonna let our athletic director, Warde Manuel, address it with the authorities. Glad to talk about the football game the rest of the way.

Maybe Warde would want to come up and talk after and give more detail to it. But it looks pretty open and shut. I mean, one of our players has a nasal injury — could be a broken nose. Just very unfortunate.
