Jim Harbaugh is on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated

What college football story could possibly land the cover of Sports Illustrated in the middle of May? A scandal, right? Maybe a significant death?

No. It's Harbaugh. Of course it's Harbaugh.

Harbaugh SI

Of note, this is a regional cover, so don't expect to see this in your mailbox if you happen to live in Los Angeles or Florida. But that may actually be more impressive in a way, considering Harbaugh knocked the the thrilling Chicago Bulls-Cleveland Cavaliers series off the cover in the Midwest.

Whatever the record is for a college football generating the most news coverage between his hiring and his first game, Harbaugh has blown that out of the water and then some.
