It’s not a secret around the league that many coaches and players aren’t fans of Thursday Night Football. The short week is far from ideal, and many people just want to get rid of playing on Thursday night altogether.
Well, earlier this year, we found out the NFL would actually be putting Thursday night games even further in the spotlight — airing many of them on CBS and just simulcasting those games on NFL Network.
Of course, during its March Madness telecasts CBS was promoting this — and happened to run a graphic doing so at a very interesting time.

Harbaugh was in Madison Square Garden cheering on Michigan State, and clearly caught the camera’s attention at the wrong moment. While there’s no evidence of him being explicitly against Thursday Night Football, it’s hard to find anyone who’s really for it.
Besides, with Harbaugh’s connection to the Spartans unclear, it now sounds like he has some beef with his brother in law.
