"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
Elliot Uzelac was the Michigan OL Coach when Harbaugh was playing. He also did stints at Western and Navy.
He's out of retirement at 74 to help turn around Benton Harbor, a team that hasn't won a game in two years. Their last winning season was in 1989.
He's pretty fired up about the Harbaugh hire too.
"Jimmy will do great at Michigan," Uzelac said. "He was a great player and fierce competitor. Michigan needs physical toughness and mental discipline, and Jimmy will make sure they get it."
It is a slow Friday. To kill the time, here is a short clip of Peppers and Ways talking about Harbaugh.

I say Harbaugh.
Via Ryan at EDSBS, Harbaugh's Parisian trip, photos, advice.
"If you take the funicular up to Sacre-Coeur, you do not have the fire necessary to play for me"
EDIT: while there are actual Harbaugh photos and quotes from his trip on twitter, this article's quotes are sarcasm
Jim Harbaugh spoke publically about Pipkins's medical per the above story in the Detroit News. The coach clears the air on this, underscoring that it's natural for a player to not want to hear that their playing career is over, but Harbaugh's primary responsibility is the safety of his players. It's good to hear him address this directly.
Three concussions (not two), the torn knee ligament, and a neck issue. I have tremendous sympathy for Pipkins, but it does indeed sound like it's time for him to move on and take full advantage of his educational opportunity.
Harbaugh and Durkin were on an official visit to recruit Connor's older brother Trent to Stanford in 2009. The boys' mother went into labor and so Harbaugh and Durkin stayed behind to babysit while mom and dad went to the hospital.
They were there for several hours babysitting six kids, including then 8 year old Connor. They played chess and drank milk.
Connor is now a 4* WDE.
