Despite win over Rutgers, Michigan fans are ready to move on from Jim Harbaugh
Rutgers nearly shocked Michigan at home on Saturday night, but fell to the Wolverines 48-42 in overtime.
Michigan backup quarterback Cade McNamara gave his team a chance in relief of Joe Milton. McNamara completed 27-of-36 passes for 260 yards and four touchdowns off the bench.
Down by eight with under a minute to go in regulation, Rutgers found the end zone. Then, quarterback Noah Vedral converted the 2-point conversion to send it to overtime.
Michigan and Rutgers exchanged missed field goals and touchdowns on the first two possessions of overtime. In the third OT, the Wolverines scored and were able to force and 3-and-out by Rutgers to secure the win.
This would have been a disastrous loss for Michigan and Jim Harbaugh. Instead, the Wolverines are now 2-3 on the season and have their first win since the season-opener vs. Minnesota.
Still, Harbaugh is in the penultimate year of his contract and things seem to be trending in the wrong direction for his career at Michigan.
Michigan fans sounded off on their frustration with their head coach throughout the game and during the overtime periods.
Here’s some of that reaction:
1.) Cade McNamara is the guy.
2.) Fire Don Brown and Jim Harbaugh. #GoBlue

I didn't watch the Rutgers game. Don't care about the score, how it ended or who the QB is. Jim Harbaugh and his staff should be fired

There’s a chance Jim Harbaugh just dies on the sidelines between now and the end of the inevitable 72-7 Ohio State whooping at the end of the year. I don’t want to see that happen. Just fire him already.
