Don’t praise Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh.

Instead, praise the kids, his players.

The brave Michigan football players – who protested during the national anthem Saturday at the Penn State-Michigan game in Ann Arbor – made Harbaugh see the light.

It wasn’t the other way around.

Remember Harbaugh wasn’t feeling Colin Kaepernick when he started this movement, kneeling during the anthem in protest of racial injustice in this country.

And remember Kaepernick was Harbaugh’s quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers. That was Harbaugh’s guy when he was head coach there.

Still, Harbaugh made it clear. He was against it – showing a sign of disrespect to the flag by not honoring it.

Harbaugh changed his tune after some of his players made a stand, took sides with Kaepernick, not their coach.
