Michigan Tuesday: Why We Love Jimmy!

There are many reasons to love our head coach Jim Harbaugh.  He is a Michigan Man, great head coach, lives and breathes football 24/7, great recruiter, great QB coach and a great motivator.  He came back to Ann Arbor to rebuild the best program in college football.

Those are all great attributes and certainly things you want in a head coach.   To top all those off, his memory and off the cuff comments are just the best!  Here are two just from Monday:

On remembering the former Michigan assistant coach and Colorado head coach, Bill McCartney when both families were in Ann Arbor when Jimmy was young: 

“I do. Great family. Love the McCartney's. They had the best cereal of anybody in the neighborhood. We had Cheerios; no flavor. We had Wheaties, but you could go to the McCartney's, they had one of those little carousels under the cabinet with Captain Crunch and Lucky Charms and Fruit Loops—a wide assortment. Ten or 12 different kinds of cereal. And Lindy was great. If you were hungry you could just come in and get yourself a bowl of cereal. Loved ‘em for that.”
On what looked like a pick and eat, during the UCF game.  (In Jerry's Seinfeld's voice,  No Pick! No Pick!)
"I have never eaten a booger in my entire life," Harbaugh said with a laugh. "That might have looked like what was happening. But I think if you rub your nose and then you bite your fingernail, that's not eating a booger now.

"There was no booger eating. Let me clear the air ... for clarity here, for the record, I have never eaten a booger in my entire life."

Both of those comments are just the best.  

  • 2017 IMG Academy 4-star center Cesar Ruiz will announce his decision on 12/18.   Many expect him to come to A2.   I hope he silently commits before then (mostly if he plans to enroll early).   

  • Jimmy, said they should know on Monday during practice if Jourdan Lewis will be able to play this weekend.   I would like him on the field for Colorado if he is healthy.  

  • Son of former Lions pass rusher and current Nebraska commit, Robert Porcher IV will use one of his official visits for a game in Ann Arbor.

  • 2017 Flint recruit Deron Irving-Bey was selected to the Army All American game on Monday.  Seems to be a MSU vs. Michigan recruitment.

  • 2017 Michigan commit Dylan McCaffrey is expected to use his official visit to Ann Arbor this weekend.

I guess I am not all there when I have visions of Harbaugh before congress in "Boogergate"... (not Watergate)... Harbaugh is under intense interrogation:

The congressmen grilling Jimmy:

"I must remind you Mr. Harbaugh, you are "under oath" UNEQUIVICALLY did you or did you not eat a booger at your last televised game??"
