Jim Harbaugh is a unique personality and that isn’t a secret. He is wildly entertaining on a daily basis, especially if you are a Michigan fan, and the head coach was filmed in the midst of a very interesting activity on Friday.
Just hours before his team took the field in what would be a 37-point win over UCF, Harbaugh took an aerial tour of Ann Arbor. While that may not seem grandiose by any measure, it should be noted that he was flying above Michigan’s campus… in a military black hawk.
While the full tour is certainly worth watching even if just to take in Harbaugh’s awkward smile and disposition, he had the following to say about his takeaway from the flight:
“It was unbelievable. A tremendous experience. The stadium still looked like a big house. It was great to see the town. The pilots were awesome, doing what they do. You gain a real respect for somebody when they have your life in their hands. True professionals. An amazing experience.”
Harbaugh is, of course, prone to hyperbole, but this did seem like a one-of-a-kind experience, even for someone as wealthy and powerful as a major college football coach. Who are we kidding, though? We would watch Jim Harbaugh do just about anything.
