Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan football team had a special visitor in the house to begin Week 11.

During Monday’s press conference, the head coach revealed former wrestler Ric Flair paid a visit to the team to start the week. Harbaugh referred to Flair as a close friend and credited Flair’s visit for raising the level of enthusiasm within the team to an even higher level.

“It was already sky-high, but then, got a visit from the Nature Boy, Ric Flair! A very close friend, that just brought the enthusiasm to a new level,” said Harbaugh.

Flair shared a picture of meeting with Harbaugh to his personal social media account Monday afternoon:

That is certainly a nice detour for Harbaugh and the Wolverines considering the nature of the football season, not to mention the ongoing sign-stealing investigation into the program. At least (for now), the Wolverines are riding their dominance and a 9-0 record into the Week 11 matchup vs. Penn State.
