Look: Jim Harbaugh's Response To Notable Michigan Sportswriter Goes Viral

Jim Harbaugh

Jim Harbaugh seems to always be in the news. 

Whether it be making entertaining videos with players, sleeping over with recruits, or the story behind the famous khakis, the Michigan head coach always attracts an audience. 

This time, though, it was Harbaugh's complete confusion about a popular trend that led to him going viral. 

"Jim I was wondering what you thought of the turnover buffs, if you encourage things like that from players," reporter Angelique Chengelis asked.

"I don't know what you're talking about, buffs?" Harbaugh questioned as he glanced around the room, obviously confused. "Pictures? Oh yeah, yeah I love them. I've never heard of buffs, you're really with it Angelique. You could not be accused of not being with the times." 

Throughout the exchange, you could hear other reporters and members of the media laughing as they all seemed shocked that Harbaugh didn't know about the celebration prop. 

While this jewelry-related turnover celebration isn't the first to catch the attention of the media, it likely won't be the last either. The University of Miami donned a 'turnover chain' back in 2017 to the delight of many, although it was retired in 2021 when a new regime took over the program. 

Only time will tell how long the 'turnover buffs' last at Michigan, especially with a tough matchup against 10th ranked Penn State looming this Saturday.
