Much of the interview was spent with Cowherd firing off questions with no particular relevance to each other and Harbaugh giving mainly bland answers punctuated by a lot of pauses, "ums" and "I don't knows."
One especially awkward moment came when Cowherd asked about the Big 10 being a "buy," as in a stock you'd want to pick up, but Harbaugh interpreted it as "bye," as in an easy week on an opposing team's schedule.
Soon after, Harbaugh interrupted Cowherd mid-sentence, pointing out that the host had asked "50 questions."
Cowherd responded, "You're not giving me a ton to work with, Coach."
Things went downhill from there. Cowherd urged Harbaugh to try to sell his team, and the coach made a couple of clumsy attempts at humor.
Finally, Cowherd pulled the plug. "This seems terribly difficult, Jim, for you. This is just not working. I love you to death, I really do, but it seems like we're going nowhere with this.
