Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines are down by two points to Indiana at halftime, but that wouldn’t be the case if not for some atrocious time management to close out the second quarter.
Harbaugh called three straight running plays with just 40 seconds left on the clock. Then, with time expiring, Shea Patterson connected with Sean McKeon, but he was stopped two yards short of the goal line as time expired before the half.
Harbaugh botches clock at end of first half. Four plays from inside the 15 in the closing seconds, and not a single throw into the end zone. Clock runs out with UM at Indiana 2. Hoosiers lead 17-15.

The entire sequence was laughably bad, and it cost Michigan points. Fans were not pleased.
Apparently Jim Harbaugh went to the Les Miles School of Clock Management.
Well, at least prior to today's game vs. Indiana.

I love Harbaugh. But back to his NFL days, speaking as a Niner fan and as a Michigan fan, his clock management and use of timeouts leaves A LOT to be desired.
