During the 2018 college football season, sports journalist John U. Bacon was given a behind-the-scenes look at Jim Harbaugh’s University of Michigan football team. From closed-door meetings to locker room talks, Bacon— who is considered the “poet laureate of Michigan football” (according to the New York Times’s Joe Drape)— spent a year observing and learning from the Wolverines. Bacon’s unprecedented access is chronicled in his new book, Overtime: Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines at the Crossroads of College Football. Hear Bacon discuss this deeply human portrait of big-time college football during his visit to the Stranahan Theater.
