Florida State's Jimbo Fisher 'Applauds' Jim Harbaugh For Michigan's Florida Trip

The entire SEC and the president of the NCAA are not happy with Michigan football's spring break trip to Florida, but Jim Harbaugh has Jimbo Fisher in his corner. 

Speaking this morning to the Palm Beach Post, the Florida State head coach spoke out in support of Harbaugh and his idea to hold spring practices at IMG Academy in Orlando. 

The Wolverines began practice on Monday and will hold four of their spring practices on-site in Florida.

From the story:

“I applaud the guy,” Fisher said today about Harbaugh’s decision to have his football team spend spring break at IMG Academy in Bradenton. “He’s doing things he has to do to be successful.

“Jim beat the rules. That fine. I applaud Jim for trying to do something different.”
