As a University of Michigan fan since the Bo years it was great to see Jim Harbaugh come in as the head coach. What has invigorated me is seeing Harbaugh recruit and run summer camps in SEC territory and happily run the coach’s nose in it specifically Nick Saban of Alabama. The camps are run at high schools across the south and promoting Michigan in the process, they are basically football drills done by the Michigan staff and are voluntary for student athletes of the particular high school.
