Perhaps Harbaugh will invite the Pope to be an honorary captain.

Spring break trips may be coming to an end in college football, but that does not mean Jim Harbaugh and Michigan aren’t down for some vacation fun.

According to a report from The Wolverine ($), Michigan may spend the last week of spring football in Rome.

As in Rome, Italy.

The report points out that the team would spend a week of their spring practices in Rome before giving an opportunity of staying overseas for a study abroad program. Should this trip go through, an open practice would possibly take the place of a traditional spring game at the Big House.

Power Five conferences ruled on Friday to ban any off-campus practices during university-sanctioned vacation time.

Michigan’s spring break runs from Feb. 25 to Mar. 5, which does not fall under the NCAA ban with this proposed trip.
