Jim Harbaugh gave quite the patriotic quote when asked about the criticism he’s been facing from several SEC coaches over his ‘Summer Swarm Tour’.
“In my America, you’re allowed to cross the state borders,” Harbaugh told USA Today. “That’s the America I know.”
John Harbaugh also came to the defense of his younger brother:
“I think he’s spot on,” John Harbaugh said to the Baltimore Sun. “I think he’s right on. It’s America, isn’t that what he said today? In our America, we’re allowed to cross state lines?
“Think about it. What are we arguing against? An opportunity for young athletes to take a look at colleges from other parts of the country, especially those who aren’t in a socio-economic kind of situation where they can travel all over the country with their parents and look at schools. It’s great — I can take my daughter to any school in the country, talk to the coaches and get some exposure for her. How many people get a chance to do that? If we’re arguing against that, we’re arguing against America.”
