I usually don’t hear the words “fun” and “Jim Harbaugh” in the same sentence. It’s not that Harbaugh isn’t a fun guy, it’s just that he usually comes off as pretty serious about football and all business.

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, Harbaugh discusses his love for the sport- and for those who also appreciate good football.

In the chat, Harbaugh says that the fun is having players who are equally excited – and obsessed – about getting to No. 1.

“I like the guys that like football,” he says in the interview. “And the guys that like football, they all like me back. And the ones that don’t like me? They’re the ones that know that I know that they don’t like football. They tend to avoid me. You want to get better at football? This is a fun factory.”
