    Harbaugh Moment....

    Remember this...

    The Prediction


    Michigan had just suffered its first loss of the 1986 season to Minnesota, dropping from No. 2 to No. 6 in the poll. Quarterback Jim Harbaugh decided to shake things up and predict a victory over Ohio State.
    “It was just something I needed and I felt my team needed,” says Harbaugh, now in his third year as the head coach at the University of San Diego. “I've always been pretty bold and there was some magic to it, some power to it.”
    At least until he walked into the locker room and thought what his equally volatile head coach might have to say about it.
    “The way our leader, Bo Schembechler, handled it was genius,” Harbaugh said. “He just came into the team meeting and I'm kind of expecting to get an earful. He said, 'Well, at least I know our quarterback thinks we can win. Rally around him. Let's go to Columbus and beat the Buckeyes.'”
    And they did, 26-24, to earn a berth in the Rose Bowl.
    But what Harbaugh remembers best about the trip to Columbus came before the game even started. “Just walking into the stadium for warmups, the entire Horseshoe was chanting in unison, 'Har-baugh! Har-baugh!' ... Cool, man. It was really cool.”

    That's what I want - someone who oozes confidence and can back it up.

    Re: Harbaugh Moment....

    A few interesting tidbits on Harbaugh...his brother in law is Tom Crean.

    Over his final 8 seasons in the NFL, he served as an unpaid offensive assistant to his father, Jack, the coach at Western Kentucky. He was involved in recruiting 17 players that helped WK to a 2002 div. 1-aa championship.

    His brother, John, is a special teams coordinator with the Philadelphia Eagles.


    He's got a very nice athletic pedigree, that's for sure...
