College football fans may have been divided over the legality of the final scoring play in Mondays Clemson-Alabama game, but everyone agreed on one thing: The 35-31 thriller to decide the national championship was an instant classic.

But at least one major figure in college football, namely Jim Harbaugh, has yet to get around to watching the game. However, the Michigan head coach offered a solid reason for having missed the Tigers upset of the Crimson Tide. He was catching some Zs.

Harbaugh made mention of the game when asked Tuesday while attending a Kentucky-Vanderbilt mens basketball game in Nashville. So we know that hes not ignoring college sports altogether, just games of the highest significance, not to mention drama, in his college sport.

The basketball game was being telecast on ESPN, so the network dispatched sideline reporter Kaylee Hartung to interview Harbaugh as he sat in the stands at the Commodores Memorial Gym. Noting that the Wolverines three losses came by a total of five points, Hartung asked for a perspective on the difficulty of the task Clemson completed Monday.
