Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is a big fan of do-it-all star Jabrill Peppers. He’s also apparently a fan of the movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
After the Big Ten Network’s Michigan Twitter account shared a highlight video of Harbaugh describing Peppers’ score on Michigan State’s 2-point conversion fumble from this past Saturday, Harbaugh chimed in on his own account.
“Cal Naughton Jr & Jabrill Peppers ‘Slingshot Engaged,'” Harbaugh wrote, in reference to John C. Reilly’s character and a quote from the Will Ferrell movie.

Here’s Harbaugh joking about how he was disappointed a parachute didn’t come out as Peppers sped down the field, followed by the play as it happened live:
