Not this year, not with former Michigan quarterback and successful coach Jim Harbaugh on the sidelines. This was no more evident than through the extremely generous tip a group of Michigan fans left a server following Thursday night’s 24-17 loss at Utah. The fans left their server, Bre Snow, at the Bourbon House a $3,000 tip on a $505 bill, which amounts to roughly a
Michigan lost tonight at Utah. But, really, it won, right? The Jim Harbaugh era has been officially christened—and that’s what tonight was about.
While Thursday night’s game against Utah didn’t result in a victory for the Wolverines, one thing became obvious fairly quickly… Michigan has an outstanding go-to pass catcher in Jake Butt. Butt hauled in a career-high eight catches for 93 yards in Michigan’s 24-17 loss to Utah on Thursday night. But, it was one catch in particular that stole the show in this game. With Michigan trailing 17-3 late in the third quarter, Jake Rudock fired a strike to Butt, who went up and made a leaping touchdown catch over two Utah defenders. Check out the outstanding catch in the video

The college football world is looking forward to Jim Harbaugh making his Michigan coaching debut tonight against Utah. While the game remains a toss up, one thing is for certain tonight… Harbaugh will be sporting his classic khakis on the sideline. Well, apparently his players got the memo. Detroit News Michigan beat writer Angelique Chengelis captured a picture of the Wolverines leaving their hotel room en route to Rice-Eccles Stadium. If you take a look at the photo, which can be seen at the top of this post, every player visible in the photo is wearing khakis. Now, it is
Good news college football fans: In honor of the return of college football, Nissan’s popular “Heisman House” commercials are back!

There was the hub-bub over satellite camps, an unabashed and odd affinity for Judge Judy, a fierce defense of “American Sniper” and, course, his khaki pants. It always seems to be about Jim Harbaugh’s khaki’s, doesn’t it? While following the daily Harbaugh media circus has been fun since his exulted arrival in Ann Arbor in late December as the anointed savior of this proud program, it’s finally time to get down to the business of playing football.
