Quinn Nordin talks back to Jim Harbaugh after missed field goal (Video)
The Michigan Wolverines cruised to a fairly straightforward win over the Maryland Terrapins on Saturday, but there were still some bumps in the road.
Sophomore kicker Quinn Nordin missed a 31-yard field goal attempt toward the end of the first half, the third straight week in which he has missed a kick. After the miss, Nordin seemed to yell at a frustrated Jim Harbaugh on the sideline.

Harbaugh downplayed the confrontation after the game, writing it off as an intense discussion.
Asked Harbaugh about Nordin exchange after missed FG: 'I said to him ‘I’m giving you one more shot. You’ve got to make the next one. And he said, ‘I got this. I will make the next one.’ You call that a heated exchange, then so be it, but it wasn’t."

Harbaugh wanted Nordin so badly that he slept over at his house while recruiting him. The feelings were a little less warm on Saturday.
