Jim Harbaugh responds to Braylon Edwards: “Come after me, not our youngsters”

During Jim Harbaugh’s weekly press conference Monday afternoon, the Wolverines head coach was asked about a deleted tweet from former Michigan wide receiver Braylon Edwards.

A legendary receiver, responsible for the most receiving yards ever by a Michigan player, Edwards took to Twitter to criticize his alma mater’s performance in a 24-17 loss to Notre Dame on Saturday night.

“(Cesar) Ruiz is weak, line is weak, Shea is scared,” Edwards wrote. “F****** Michigan offense is so predictable … Michigan football is, sadly, one thing … trash.”

The tweet has since been deleted by Edwards, but the internet is forever and it was a well-documented comment.

When asked about the comments, Harbaugh held nothing back.

“It’s not true. It’s not factual. There’s no one in the program that thinks that about anyone on our team,” Harbaugh said. “It’s disappointing that a member of the Big Ten Network would attack two of our players.”

He continued.

“Come after me, not our youngsters.”

Edwards’ younger brother, Berkley, is a 5th-year graduate transfer from Central Michigan and a member of the Michigan roster.

Big Ten Network announced shortly after Harbaugh’s comments that Edwards is “suspended indefinitely,” due to his comments.
