Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh's eccentricites are nothing new.
He's advocated drinking large amounts of milk for aspiring quarterbacks, citing his own dairy consumption as a kid aiding his growth and development as a football player.
He's taken the Wolverines to Cracker Barrel for an "A+ Meal & Hospitality," and he even made a cameo on the classic sitcom Saved by the Bell 20 years ago.
But, that doesn't mean we ever get tired of a fun Coach Jim story coming out of Ann Arbor.
At a press conference Monday morning, Harbaugh was asked to comment on the lopsided advantage Michigan's arch-rival Michigan State has enjoyed over the past seven years. The coach answered with a quote from the classic Disney film, The Lion King, saying, "Simba gets hit over the head, and [Rafiki] tells him, 'yeah the past can hurt, you can either run from it embrace it and learn from it.'"
Why did @CoachJim4UM reference "The Lion King" in his press conference? Hint: It has to do with rival @MSU_Football. http://t.co/vO3iQk4Ub4— Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) October 12, 2015
If Michigan gets a fairy tale ending against Sparty this weekend, maybe other coaches will start adding Disney philosophy to their gameplan. Putting Mickey ears on Steve Spurrier's headset seems like a great idea.
