Michigan still hadn’t publicly named a starting quarterback before taking the field at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Thursday evening to face Utah, so what did Jim Harbaugh do? The head coach took some reps under center himself.
Harbaugh’s high-intensity approach is nothing new to football fans, but it was nonetheless eye-opening to see him donning long sleeves while getting in some reps. The khakis, though? You knew those would be out in full force.

Just terrific. And it looks like Harbaugh still has good form—from 1983–1986, he completed 62.4% of his passes and threw for 5,449 yards, 31 touchdowns and 22 interceptions as Michigan’s quarterback.
Just before kickoff, Michigan did finally name Jake Rudock as the Wolverines’ starter.
