Like a million other dads last week, Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the University of Michigan football team and Star Wars fan, took his sons to see "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". (And, I mean, they were there at midnight on Thursday - so, they took it seriously)

He had one complaint about the movie: no Darth Vader. He's a big Vader fan.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Harbaugh was on the "Inside the Huddle" show, on WXYZ-TV, when he said of Darth Vader, "I love Darth Vader. He’s just relentless, he’s a jackhammer."

Unfortunately, as far as the new Star Wars movies go, Darth Vader is now dead.

Harbaugh was a little upset about that. "I thought they would have found some way to get him back in there", he said.

Let it go, Jim. He's gone.

Here's the story.
