Trailer: HBO Real Sports Feature on Harbaugh

Submitted by BursleyHall82 on April 18th, 2015 at 11:59 PM

It's interesting seeing 50-year-old Harbaugh doing an impression of 10-year-old Harbaugh doing an impression of Rick Leach.

Oh, and here's a SPOILER ALERT: Harbaugh used to worship a coach named Schembechler.

It airs Tuesday evening. Should be worth a view.

I'll be watching definitely - just this scene alone, right down to his re-enactment of Leach's pre-snap routine, was fun to watch. It is nice to see shows like "Real Sports" also bringing recognition to the program and what is going on here through these interviews though. As we've discussed at length around these parts - Harbaugh being himself keeps Michigan in the spotlight.

It's is absolutely amazing how genuine and how deep his love and passion for Michigan is. Nobody who ever said he'd never leave the NFL has a clue what this place means to him. It's scary to think what we're on the verge of witnessing. God I hope he can deliver on at least half of what the potential is for him in this position. As a grad with amazing memories of running around that field after beating Ohio St in 97 I can only imagine the joy he has going to work everyday surrounded by the memories of all the amazing experiences he had there.

For those of us that were Michigan fans as kids, nothing would be cooler than being in Harbaugh's position there. Those memories as a young fan are something I will always cherish. Sometimes I still get just as excited thinking about those games that I saw as a kid. I bet Harbaugh's love for Michigan is 10x as great as mine. You could see the excitement on his face as he recalled that touchdown. We couldn't have a more perfect fit for a coach.

Can't imagine how excited he gets to go to work every day. I know the NFL is the ultimate test of competition in the game of football, but he just seems so much more at ease and in love with what he's doing here vs. being with the 49ers.

Coupling that with the fact that he is treated as a god in Ann Arbor, I can see why he seems so happy.

Is this where I can vent my frustration that HBO Go does not live stream fights (Matthysse/Provodnikov or any others)?

Cuz all these caveats to actual cord-cutting bullshit is really starting to piss me off.

The competition with anyone and with anything continues. The press copy of the HBO profile has video and audio of Harbaugh shouting generally at Michigan players in spring practice to “huddle the fuck up” and telling one specific player, “I’m just telling you the right way to do it. If you want to look at me with that look, go fucking someplace else.”

According to a USA Today article, Alex Boone is quoted in the HBO feature talking about how the players hated Harbaugh because he was too Gung Ho.   Sounds like sour grapes from a fat ass Bucknut that can't let it go.
