....it appears that Jim Harbaugh has some work to do yet with his team. How so? Well, they willingly compared themselves with gladiators--slaves forced to combat until they died--while in Rome. So apart from the real issues of how one squares a trip to Rome with the notion of "amateur" athletics", it appears that the spirit of general studies is sadly still quite alive at the U. of M. I have been hoping, despite my antipathy towards that school, that Harbaugh would lead something of an academic renaissance there and shame other football programs (like my beloved Spartans) into the same.
That said, maybe this trip will help in this regard. Time will tell.
Update: not going so well, as he's apparently been kicked out of a mall for throwing a football around. Maybe the coach needs to go back through western civ again, too.
