always wondered what this dumb saying was about

Quote:
At the time they lived in a tiny two bedroom-house in Iowa City, where Jack was an assistant coach at University of Iowa. Sometimes they had a car. If not, they were walking -- what a terrific opportunity to work on basketball dribbling skills! Jack convinced the boys how great it was that they could bunk together in a tiny bedroom and talk philosophy and share each other's dreams.

"Who could possibly have it better than you two guys?" Jack would ask.

Nobody. Obviously.

...."The message there was not having things handed to you, that things that don't come easy are really a blessing," Harbaugh said. "If it's harder it makes you better in the long run. That's what my dad was selling."

No, it is, and Harbaugh is a douchebag for saying it after every win...
