There Are Jim Harbaugh Days to Michigan Football

Malcolm Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Four Days. That's all that remains until opening Saturday in Ann Arbor. All the off season hi jinx, NCAA tomfoolery, hit pieces, scandals, and replays of painful losses will just float away come sunrise on that day. Michigan Stadium has sat dormant for too long, the sidelines empty, clamoring for the rumble of band, team and fans. Our countdown series continues down the home stretch, honoring the players and games of Michigan lore.

The fiery, cocky gunslinger that played for Michigan from 1984-1986 is still the same man roaming the sidelines in San Francisco. Jim Harbaugh, at the time, burned down all the existing Michigan passing records, and his single-season record of 2,729 yards stood for 17 years, alongside a 300-yard game against Wisconsin. John Navarre broke both of those plateaus, but Harbaugh remains the comeback and guarantee-to-win king. Michigan beat Nebraska in the 1986 Fiesta Bowl after he said he refused to lose to Ohio State, and he beat them not once, but twice.
