Jim Harbaugh is perhaps the most interesting man in the college football world and, in 2016, his team also happens to be one of the best in the nation. That is a dangerous combination for the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines in that his sheer presence can cause uproar, but on Saturday, Harbaugh’s powers of influence will be used in a “different” way.
Well, he will reportedly be featured in an ESPN College GameDay feature… alongside SpongeBob Square Pants.
At this point, details are sketchy as to what this television moment will entail, but Harbaugh teaming up with the Nickelodeon powerhouse is sure to draw big-time attention. Michigan happens to play a very important game against Iowa (on the road) this weekend and, non-coincidentally, that contest will take place on ABC in prime time. With that in mind, this feature could basically be anything, but at any rate, it seems insane on paper and weird doesn’t begin to describe it.
Jim Harbaugh is absolute gold for television producers, pundits and fans of the sport, but one can only speculate as to what the pairing of the head coach and the animated character will look like. Hold on to your hats.
