Jim Harbaugh is getting his American in Italy on, and we’re getting to experience every bit of it.
The coach has taken his entire team to the world’s boot, and recently visited the Trevi Fountain. In perhaps the most understated comment in college football for 2017, Harbaugh regarded it as “the most beautiful fountain I’ve ever seen.”
Ornate and centuries old, the fountain is the originator of having people toss coins while making wishes. Harbaugh certainly isn’t above that.
The coach cast his coin and wished for, what else, a national championship.
Harbaugh has established a name for himself as one of the elite coaches in the profession. However, he has done so without adding a championship to his resume. Nick Saban has multiple, so does Urban Meyer, Harbaugh has none.
Even in the NFL, his bid to take the lowly 49ers from chumps to champs was stamped out by the superior Seahawks.
Meyer is doing everything in his power to bring home the bacon to Ann Arbor. For the Michigan faithful at least, perhaps the coin he cast will make his wish come true.
