Always looking for a way to be in the spotlight, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh never ceases to amaze on how he does it.

A then-6-year-old Harbaugh moved to Iowa City in 1971 with his family and ran into the street with his older brother John (Baltimore Ravens head coach), where Jim was then struck by an oncoming truck.

"John and I had gone to school, our first day at Roosevelt Elementary," Harbaugh told reporters during last season, according to Dan Murphy of ESPN. "First day we'd moved there and found some kids to play with after school.

"I was trying to put my jacket on over my head all at once. I was just following after him, and he crossed the street - busy street there. The next thing I know, I woke up in a hospital bed. I'd got hit by a mail truck. Broke my leg in two places, had a cast on for about six months. I was in the first grade."

Now some 45 years later, the two somehow were reunited and caught up by drinking milk, one of Harbaugh's favorite beverages.
