Jim Harbaugh: ‘I have never eaten a booger in my entire life’


Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh, as he is wont to do, confronted the latest controversy involving his alleged transgressions head on, but this time the comical absurdity of it all makes previous incidents seem boring by comparison.

A video of Harbaugh on the sidelines during Michigan’s 51-14 win over Central Florida appeared to show the coach picking his nose and placing whatever it was he dug out of his nostril into his mouth.

Here’s what Harbaugh had to say about the alleged nose-picking-and-booger-eating incident.

“I have never eaten a booger in my entire life,” Harbaugh said, via USA Today. “It might have looked like that was happening. But if you rub your nose and then you bite your fingernail, that’s not eating a booger. There was no booger eaten.

“For clarity here, for the record, I have never eaten a booger in my entire life.”

And that, folks, has to be easily one of the most bizarrely ludicrous comments ever to come out of the mouth of a college football coach. Especially more so because it involves Harbaugh’s vehement denial that he stuck something in said mouth that shouldn’t ever come near it.

But in all honesty, Harbaugh’s explanation arguably checks out.
