Jim Harbaugh spoke to the media at noon on Monday and discusses Michigan’s loss to Notre Dame, what he thought of Shea Patterson’s performance, how the offensive line performed, and lots more.

Harbaugh Press Conference Recap

  • “Quarterback was really accurate throughout the game.”
  • “Good to see Oliver Martin make a big play in the game”
  • “Definitely thought our receivers quite improved, there are things to improve on there.”
  • “We really like our tight ends.”
  • “They blocked extremely well (offensive line).”
  • “There were quite a few boxes you check and say ‘hey, this was improved’.”
  • “The thing that popped the most was his (Patterson) accuracy, location of the balls, accurate all game. Some tight window throws, some really good throws. Managed the game really well.”
  • “He was seeing things good (Dylan McCaffrey), that’s in his makeup. He’s got that ability, to be cool about it, to be cool under pressure. He threw the ball accurately as well in the pocket, and on the run.”
  • “The loss hurts, hurts your body.”
  • “The way we played this game is the way we’ll play the next game on the offensive line.”
  • “Karan (Higdon) was running well, especially in the first half. He was seeing the holes and very good in the pass protection, had a couple really nice blocks.”
  • “We’ll get the ball snapped faster in a two minute situation.”
  • “The offense wasn’t a simple game-plan. It wasn’t.”
  • “No. 1, first of all it’s not true or factual (What Braylon Edwards said). There’s no one in our program who thinks that way about any player on our team. I was disappointed a member of the Big Ten Network would choose to attack the character of our players. That’s disappointing.”
  • “I don’t know if it was the right call. It was close (on Josh Metellus targeting call).”
