Michigan insider Steve Deace joins the show on the Farm Bureau talking about the battle between Jim Harbaugh and the NCAA live in the BankPlus Studio. Steve talks about how dumb he thinks the allegations and attacks are on Jim Harbaugh and why it is such a big story. Steve breaks down how Jim Harbaugh has been keeping a low profile since 2020 but now that Michigan is good and Harbaugh is a big name the story is good for business in the sports world. Steve talks about how a lot of the stories that are broken are coming from Ohio State fans or sources and that there is an obsession with smearing Michigan before the CFP rankings for the storyline. Steve gives insight on how Ohio State sources were driving the story to the biggest football media outlets in what could be Jim Harbaugh's best year ever at Michigan. Steve thinks that JJ McCarthy is on pace to be the best Michigan quarterback ever and how he almost became an Ohio State Buckeye. Steve talks about the picture from where Tennessee's signs were allegedly stolen and mentions national media calling Michigan cheaters before a formal NCAA investigation has even begun. Steve notes that Michigan is reacting the right way by showing they aren't worried about the situation and that the pressure is now on the Big 10. Steve says that the true commissioner of the Big 10 is the head of Fox Sports and he will not allow Michigan, and his ratings, to be affected. JJ McCarthy actually grew up a Ohio State fan and Steve says how he has never seen this level of dominance from Michigan in his life.
