Jim Harbaugh refuses to drink 1% or skim milk

Tuesday September 20th, 2016

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh loves milk. At media day last year, a little kid asked him about it, and he advised to “drink as much milk as your little belly can hold.”

So it’s no surprise he will only drink the best milk, which is whole milk, and tolerate the second-best milk, which is 2% milk.

A guest on the Dan Patrick Show, Harbaugh was talking about the beverage, and said he’s got whole, chocolate and 2% milk in the dispensers at school.

When Patrick joked that Ohio State’s Urban Meyer likes 1%? He wasn’t having it.

“We refuse to drink the candy-ass skim milk or the 1%,” he said.

Of course, he spun that into a promotion, but that makes this even better. Jim Harbaugh has a freaking milk deal. What a legend.
