First came the satellite camps in SEC Country. Now comes “Ann Arbor’s Aerial Assault.”
Jim Harbaugh is making news again, this time with a Michigan quarterback camp June 20 that will be capped at 300 participants. Instructors include Colin Kaepernick, Jay Cutler, Denard Robinson, Jameis Winston, Elvis Grbac, Kyle Boller and QB guru George Whitfield.
Harbaugh tweeted Wednesday: “ExposureU teams w NFL QBs & trainers for a 1 day Aerial Assault. First ever 2016, 2017, 2018, & 2019 QB Cage Match!”
CBSSports.com says a formal media release with more information is expected next week.
Speaking of those satellite camps, ESPN reports the NCAA academic and membership affairs staff issued an interpretation this month that outlaws coaches from promoting or helping develop promotional materials for any noninstitutional camp/clinic online or through social media or recruiting correspondence.
Harbaugh quotes Judge Judy again
Sports Illustrated’s long feature on Harbaugh — by former Free Press writer Michael Rosenberg is out — is on newsstands, and much of it chronicles the coach’s well-documented adventures since he got back to Michigan.
You know, saving motorists, coaching first base, coaching Jameis Winston, touting “American Sniper,” things like that.
But Harbaugh talked about himself and his ways, too, like how he motivates others.
“Speeches?” Harbaugh says. “I don’t ever feel like I’m giving a speech. I don’t look at myself as a motivational speaker. Say what’s on your mind. Do you prepare for that? Yeah. You prepare those things. … Judge Judy says if you tell the truth, you don’t have to have a good memory.
“I don’t think that has anything to do with this, but it’s a way to get Judge Judy into the conversation.”
