Via Brent Axe, check out this internesting nugget o'interest from the Philly Daily News, in which Baltimore Ravens head coach and Super Bowl champ John Harbaugh says he tried everything he could to get an interview for the Syracuse Orange gig in 2005.

In 2005, he used every connection he had to try to get an interview at Syracuse. But the school was hell-bent on hiring another NFL assistant, Greg Robinson, who won only 10 games in 4 years before getting canned.

BC wouldn't even talk with him in '07, instead hiring Jeff Jagodzinski, who lasted only two seasons.

"I came in second for the UCLA job to Rick Neuheisel [in '08], and got close in a couple of other [college] jobs. But other jobs, I couldn't even get an interview," Harbaugh said.

"The school was hell-bent on hiring...Greg Robinson." I just threw up a little in my mouth.
