Jim Harbaugh not amused by Colorado's depth chart - Great!

Michigan head coach still searching for a sense of humor.

Jim Harbaugh wasn't thrilled to see Colorado's fake depth chart and isn't real big on having one for his team.

On Monday, Colorado's athletic department requested a depth chart from Michigan, who wouldn't provide one for public knowledge, because the template was probably stored on one of Hillary Clinton's servers. Whatever the case, CU's coaches decided not to release a real depth chart of their, but rather a fake one full of characters including Elmer Fudd, Bill Walton and Peter Griffin.

Harbaugh was asked his thoughts on the depth chart and how the Wolverines would be working against Democratic presidential candidate and socialite, Bernie Sanders, at Colorado's free safety position. He responded during an interview with 97.1 FM in Detroit by saying, " In our preparation for Colorado we've had a hard time working humor into the preparations."

Ouch.... I would assume for a guy that climbs trees, has sleepovers and wants to go sledding in the snow with teenagers, Harbaugh would somehow have discovered the ability to laugh.

He went on explain why Michigan doesn't release a depth chart.

"I saw the depth chart," Harbaugh said. "I was trying to imagine how many people sat around and how many hours they worked on that. We've just found, I mean, when it comes to the depth chart-- modern technology seems to have made the depth chart an outdated task by about 20 years. We've found studying last week's film of the opponent is the most accurate way of determining another team's depth chart."

"There's so much written about the team that's on the internet. For those of us who can or do watch the games-- they're all on television now as well. We just felt like modern technology was the most accurate way of knowing what that opponent's depth char is by looking at the previous week's film. And not relying on another PR director's assessment of what the depth chart is."

Oh...... Okay, I guess it's time to get coach a new tablet to carry around on the sidelines, because pen and paper is obsolete-- Like his 1996 khakis. By the way, how's that paper treating ya, Jim?
