Jim Harbaugh: Michigan Will Watch ‘American Sniper’ Despite Controversy

Come hell or high water, Jim Harbaugh’s football team is going to see “American Sniper.”

There was a bit of controversy on the University of Michigan campus earlier this week when a public screening of the movie was canceled. A sophomore at the university started a petition calling for the movie not to be shown and the Center for Campus Involvement eventually relented by canceling the showing.

Harbaugh, the recently hired head coach, didn’t care, as he proclaimed Wednesday night his team was going to see “American Sniper,” and basically, anyone who has an issue can go screw.

However, the Center for Campus Involvement eventually flip-flopped anyway, and “American Sniper” will be shown anyway. So, too, will “Paddington,” so everyone wins.
