LOOK: CBS uses Jim Harbaugh in lieu of Michigan mascot for Sweet 16 video
Michigan lacks a mascot.
Unlike most college teams, the school does not have someone dressed as an oversized Wolverine to perform antics during sporting events. But without one, who is the face of Michigan sports?
CBS looked no further than the mug of the Wolverines’ football coach.
CBS put out a video full of animated mascots representing the teams in the Sweet 16 on Sunday night after the field was set. There were 15 dancing mascots, including Xavier’s aptly named Blue Blob, and one happy Harbaugh.

Harbaugh often is animated in his own right on the sideline. And make no mistake, he was pumped up about Michigan’s win over Louisville in the Sweet 16.
Outstanding performance by Coach Beilein and @umichbball team! Terrific individual efforts today too. It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
