Jim Harbaugh is a University of Michigan employee but all semantics aside, Harbaugh owns the Michigan Wolverines. That’s why his players get to watch ‘American Sniper’ and watch it straight to the chagrin of university protesters.

According to the Sporting News, the University of Michigan canceled an on-campus screening of ‘American Sniper,’ and this apparently applies to every student that isn’t a football player.
Michigan Football will watch “American Sniper”! Proud of Chris Kyle & Proud to be an American & if that offends anybody then so be it!

This is per Harbaugh’s orders and it shows just how much clout the Michigan coach was implicitly offered. Harbaugh signed the contract and now he’s testing every letter of the agreement. It should be interesting to see how far the Wolverines are willing to cave.
