Jim Harbaugh has never been afraid to mix it up.

But what he did at the end of the first quarter was weird, even for him.

It wasn’t a Jabrill Peppers flea-flicker or a double-reverse. No, it was an I-formation, but not one you’ve probably ever seen before:

For what it’s worth,¬†Michigan moved into a more typical two-back formation. This obviously would’ve resulted in a penalty.

De’Veon Smith nearly ran in for a score, but he was stopped at the one-yard line. What Michigan was trying to do with this is anyone’s guess.¬†It did set up the game’s first touchdown.

As usual, Harbaugh is winning in his own weird way.
