On this edition of Accost the Field, we do a little recapping of the Cotton Bowl in terms of the postgame locker room. Why it felt odd, what might it mean, and stuff like that. Then we dive into J.T. Barrett’s legacy. We — myself, Tom Orr, and Shannon Sommers — discuss which departing senior will be the toughest to replace.
We then move on a bit to Michigan football and ask the age old question — is Jim Harbaugh worth it?
This encompasses about an hour of the show before have to move on and touch base quickly on some recruiting stuff and men’s basketball. We then finish with some listener questions.
We probably should have charged double for this one.
