Report: Michigan could spend end of spring practice in Europe
You knew that Jim Harbaugh wouldn’t go down without a fight.
On Friday, the NCAA passed its proposal to ban off-campus spring break practices. In other words, Michigan won’t be going to Florida again this year.
But apparently Rome, Italy might still happen.
According to a report from TheWolverine.com, Michigan could spend its final week of spring practices in Europe. The Wolverines reportedly had the trip in the works for months. The team would practice, take an educational trip to Rome and some players could stay in Europe to study abroad.
Michigan’s spring break trip to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. was what prompted new NCAA legislation. Technically, Michigan wouldn’t be in violation of any new rules.
The NCAA banned spring break practices during vacation periods. Michigan would be taking the trip after final exams conclude on April 27.
They’d be similar to the trips that the men’s and women’s basketball teams take overseas to play in exhibition games.
The Wolverines have yet to confirm this report.
