Michigan paints Italy blue in team-building, paintball event

ROME (AP) Jim Harbaugh got paint on his designer khakis.

And, it looked like he loved it.

Michigan's football coach and his players participated in a paintball competition Tuesday in Italy. The team had lunch later in the day near Lake Albano, hung out on the beach and went kayaking.

The Wolverines visited landmarks in Rome on Monday and are expected to go to the Vatican later this week. They will close the unique trip with three practices. After the scheduled part of the trip ends, the players will be free to study and travel overseas or simply to return home to work out and take classes.
