As reports of Harbaugh coming to Michigan surfaced this weekend, BTN.com's Tom Dienhart wrote that "Harbaugh immediately injects a megadose of attitude to a Wolverines program that is in desperate need of some mojo and swagger."
Dienhart added that Harbaugh "knows what Michigan football has been about, can be about and should be about. The losing to Ohio State and Michigan State has to stop for a program that hasn't won the Big Ten title since 2004." Read Dienhart's earlier post here.
