Some unusually high temperatures hit parts of the Midwest on Monday, with the thermometer hitting 80 degrees in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The shorts and t-shirt weather just as the leaves were beginning to turn colors across the region prompted at least one curious response and it shouldn’t be at all shocking that it came from the Wolverines head coach.
“Global warming is good for Michigan,” Jim Harbaugh said on his radio show, according to USA Today. “It’s good for recruiting.”
Global warming usually isn’t considered a great thing no matter what college football fan base you belong to but you can understand the benefits of a nice day in Ann Arbor if Michigan were hosting some recruits. This isn’t the first time Harbaugh has brought up global warming and linking it to recruiting either, saying roughly the same thing to Tom Brady back in an event on national signing day.
We’re pretty sure that’s going to be Harbaugh’s go-to line anytime there’s some unseasonably warm weather at the school but we’ll have to see if he comes up with a different quip when there’s a few feet of snow on the ground around campus over the coming months.
