Jim Harbaugh has been making splashes in college football since his return from his stint with the 49ers. Jim is winning over just about everyone in Ann Arbor these days. Between turning around the recruiting efforts at Michigan to finishing 4th in the student presidential election, he is doing it all.
There are a few guys that haven’t been too pleased that Jimbo has burst onto the scene, and those guys reside in SEC country. See, Jim decided that it’d be a grand idea to host Michigan satellite football camps around the country for kids to learn the game of football, do a little coaching, and he won’t admit to it, but do a little recruiting too. It’s a pretty smart move if you ask me.
Dan Mullen, however, thinks it’s a crappy idea because he’s more than likely worried about how he’s going to do after a fluke season.
From USA Today:
“I imagine, if Jim Harbaugh was going to have a camp, he would want to coach the kids in Michigan, the young kids in Michigan, maybe how to be better football players. … So why do they need one all over the place? The only purpose for it is recruiting. I don’t think it’s the right purpose for camps.”
Harbaugh has even drawn the ire of the devil himself, Nick Saban, among others. He had this to say about it though, and dammit he is right.
“In my America, you’re allowed to cross the state borders,” Harbaugh says. “That’s the America I know.”
Mic dropped. How can you respond to that without coming off as a commie? You can’t. Score one more for Jim..
