On Wednesday morning Jim Harbaugh called in to The Herd with Colin Cowherd to do a radio interview, which started out awkward, and quickly progressed to really awkward, and then on to unbearably awkward.
The coach seemed unable to come up with answers to Cowherd's questions, some of which were fairly odd themselves, such as "Is there ever a moment in the day were you are like, 'Oh man, I am a cupcake, I am soft, I am easy'?"
The missed signals and poor communication continued until Cowherd eventually called the interview off after about five minutes, apologizing to listeners and calling the interview a clunker.
The host even added that if any recruits were listening to the chat, they would likely choose Michigan rival Ohio State and coach Urban Meyer.
Colin Cowherd; If I'm an 18-year-old kid and I just listened to Jim Harbaugh on this show, I'd go with Urban Meyer.— Rachel Lenzi (@RLenziCMG) July 1, 2015
Have at it, peeps.
After the awkward interaction began garnering a lot of interest on the internet, Harbaugh fired back on Twitter, saying that Cowherd would shoulder part of the blame for the lifeless interview.
In my experience of participating in interviews, I've found it takes 2 to produce a clunker! I'll take 50% responsibility 4 this clunker.— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) July 1, 2015
You can listen to the five-and-a-half minute interview for yourself below and decide who you think caused all the awkwardness.
