Jim Harbaugh to study Super Bowl RPOs in Super Bowl, possibly use concepts
Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh didn’t watch Super Bowl 52 in person; he enjoyed it from his parents’ house in Ann Arbor, instead. Harbaugh was most intrigued with Philadelphia’s run-pass option sets with quarterback Nick Foles and said he plans to study the footage to see which concepts he can incorporate into Michigan’s offense. SB Nation’s Trevor Woods agrees, arguing Ole Miss transfer quarterback Shea Patterson would be a perfect fit in an RPO-based offense (if he gains eligibility this season).
