Jim Harbaugh has the Michigan Wolverines flipping out

They're practically jumping out of their shoes in Ann Arbor.

Jim Harbaugh's return to Michigan late last year electrified the college football world and, if recent demonstrations are any clue, the Wolverines football players are even more excited than the fans to have the school's former quarterback at the helm.

In fact, they're basically jumping for joy.

Redshirt freshman defensive back Jabrill Peppers showed off his aerial skills during Tuesday's opening practice, proving he's overcome his injuries with a few flips.

Peppers' moves are impressive, no doubt there. But his routine will need some polish to match that of teammate Blake Countess, who started his gymnastics training when he was just three years old.

Michigan will kick off the 2015 season against Utah on Sept. 3. Between now and then, some Wolverines will likely be splitting their focus between their playbooks and developing what appear to be very promising floor routines.
