Jim Harbaugh ate cereal with Gatorade because he was out of milk

Tuesday January 20th, 2015

Michigan's new head coach Jim Harbaugh is a very peculiar man, as has been documented countless times.

The latest talk of his odd behavior comes from someone who knows him pretty well: his son, and new tight ends coach, Jay Harbaugh.

Jay told MGoBlue.com that his dad found an odd replacement liquid for his cereal when the family ran out of milk one morning.

Wouldn't water be preferable to Gatorade in that situation? Perhaps those extra morning electrolytes are the key to "attacking this day with an Enthusiasm Unknown to Mankind."
