    NCAA passes the Harbaugh Rule

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...augh/96836772/

    NASHVILLE – Though it won’t officially be called the “Jim Harbaugh Rule,” the NCAA’s five power conferences passed a measure Friday ending trips like the one he took over spring break with the Michigan football team at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., last March.

    As part of a package of new rules designed to create more off time for college athletes, the new rule prohibiting off-campus practice during a vacation period outside of a playing season passed 58-20 after a vigorous debate with a majority in all five conferences, though the athlete representatives voted against it 11-4.

    Michigan athletics director Warde Manuel gave an impassioned defense of Michigan’s trip to IMG last season and suggested the rule was proposed to target Harbaugh, who has rankled the SEC and ACC by using unconventional tactics to expand Michigan’s visibility in the recruiting-rich Southeast.

    “The rule didn’t get proposed until after we took the football team down to Florida for spring break, so I think you can read into that as you will,” Manuel said. “I wasn’t surprised by the vote, but what I think we all need to look at it is the students voted (11-4) to defeat the proposal so the various students we’re trying to serve, the voice of the students, I think spoke clearly that they would enjoy the opportunity to experience and be able to train off campus during their breaks.”

    SEC commissioner Greg Sankey denied that his league’s stance had anything to do with protecting its recruiting territory but rather being consistent with the goal to allow off time like spring break to really be off time.

    “Student-athletes told us to stop taking and grabbing more time from them. I said then and I’ll say now it seemed the wrong direction to be using what is a break opportunity for practice,” Sankey said. “It’s as fundamental as that. It wasn’t about one institution or some regional protection. It was very simply if we’re going to sit here and talk about trying to be attentive to time expectations and managing those appropriately for student-athletes, we have to look at that type of out-of-season, off-campus, take a trip practice.”

    No problem. He doesn't have an unfair recruiting advantage there.

    Re: NCAA passes the Harbaugh Rule

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan football program announced Monday (Jan. 23) a special educational and football experience for its student-athletes, with a week of learning and spring practice in Rome.

    Michigan Football will travel to Rome, Italy, after finals toward the end of winter semester in April for an extraordinary life experience during the spring practice season. The players and staff will use three of the allotted 15 spring football practices in Rome, training at AS Roma, the professional Italian football (soccer) club in the city.

    During the trip to Rome, the Wolverines will be immersed in the culture of Italy. The team will visit historic landmarks, spend time with youth at orphanages, and visit deployed U.S. military in the country amongst other team activities. The experience will culminate with a youth clinic, and the team will play a scrimmage that will be open to the Italian public.

    "Over the past few decades student-athletes in other sports have had the opportunity to participate in international training trips to practice and prepare for the upcoming season," said Warde Manuel, U-M's Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. "This is a tremendous opportunity for these young men to learn about and experience another culture, connect with the people of Italy, and showcase American football internationally. The University of Michigan has always encouraged our students to gain knowledge through international experiences, and we are so glad to provide them with this opportunity."

    "We were looking to provide our student-athletes with a great educational, cultural and international football experience," said Jim Harbaugh, U-M's J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach. "I am excited that our student-athletes will be able to take advantage of this amazing educational opportunity, be exposed to another culture, and be ambassadors for the United States and the University of Michigan during our visit to Rome."

    In addition, all of the students that participate in football will have the chance to explore international internships, study abroad or service opportunities.

    "The study abroad and international internships will better prepare our student-athletes to compete in today's global economy," added Harbaugh. "We are committed to offering our students a broad experience that will prepare these young men for life after football."

    SPRING PRACTICE IN ANN ARBOR: The Wolverines will hold a free, open-to-the-public spring football practice on Saturday, April 15, at Michigan Stadium. The details for the day will be set and announced in the future.

    Yeah, because I'm sure 17-year-olds are really interested in some geezer in a robe and silly hat.

    Probably not, but it's still an awesome opportunity for the team and nice selling point on recruiting visits.
