For the past two weeks, the Harbaugh family and Tom Crean — the family’s most famous in-law — enjoyed the build-up for the Super Bowl XLVII matchup of Jim Harbaugh’s San Francisco 49ers and John Harbaugh’s Baltimore Ravens, but braced themselves for the inevitability that one of the brothers would be elated and the other devastated when the game ended.
Crean was still in New Orleans on Monday morning when he was asked about his whirlwind weekend on the Big Ten teleconference. He said the mixed emotions were everything he expected them to be.
“It’s so unique,” Crean said. “It’s been a short night. You’ve got one family member that you’re just overwhelmed with happiness for. You’ve got another one that it’s as close to heartbreak for somebody else that you can feel. It’s difficult, certainly for Joani and her parents. There’s such great joy for one and there’s such pride. (Boston Celtics coach) Doc Rivers sent a text last night that summed this up and I gave it to Jack. It said, ‘As a parent, you’re only as happy as your unhappiest child.’ I think that’s an amazing statement, one of the most profound things I’ve ever heard. It probably fit what Joani’s parents are going through. But in the sense of it, it could be a once in a lifetime thing, and there’s incredible joy of getting to be a part of it and see it.”
