Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh sounds ready to take on the challenge of playing Army this weekend.

The eccentric football coach told the media it would be a “great challenge” to play the Black Knights on Saturday, according to Detroit News reporter Angelique Chengelis. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I can’t wait to watch Army play the Wolverines on Saturday. It’s going to be a great game. Army has played big teams incredibly tough recently.

Let’s not forget, they took Oklahoma to the wire last season.

Stopping Army from running the option will be an incredibly tough task for the Wolverines. Michigan is more talented at every single position, but the option is designed to neutralize skill differences and close the gap.

Plus, teams don’t often see the triple option. That means they’re not really prepared to deal with it. If Army can get rolling, I can guarantee you things will get interesting very quickly.

The game is at noon on FOX, and I can promise you I’ll be locked in and watching. Plus, the Badgers don’t play until later in the afternoon.

That means we get to be totally focused on seeing whether or not the Black Knights can upset the Wolverines. As a Big 10 fan, I don’t want to see it.

As somebody who hates Michigan, you best believe I’m pulling for Army to beat the Wolverines.

Besides, the meltdown from fans if Michigan loses is going to be epic. Can’t wait!
