Harbaugh: Bikinis? 'Don't know what you're talking about'
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. — Michigan players have talked a lot about the Orange Bowl being a business trip, and they haven’t had time for fun — that will come after Friday night’s game.
One television reporter, however, seemed to annoy Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh during the final pregame bowl news conference Thursday morning with what could be viewed as an inappropriate line of questioning. The questions were in the framework of Harbaugh saying the bowl fun is in the football work and team unity.
Harbaugh was told by the reporter his “players are a little disappointed they haven’t seen any bikinis. I’d like to get your thoughts on that.”
Here’s the exchange:
Harbaugh: “I don't have any thoughts on that.”
Reporter: “They would like to see some bikinis before they leave.”
Harbaugh: “I don't know about that. I don't know anything about that. I don't know what you're talking about.”
Reporter: “See the beach.”
Harbaugh: “I do not know what you're talking about.”
Reporter: “The beach, the bikinis.”
Harbaugh: “Yeah. I don't know anything about that.”
Reporter: “Not on the itinerary?”
Harbaugh: “Don't know what you're talking about.”
