Jim Harbaugh, Michigan, Jack Harbaugh discussed on Attack Each Day: The Harbaughs' Podcast
I just didn't want to get it wrong but yeah I mean I look forward to Obviously you know the most important porn thing is the the next game or ballgame and then you know after that I'll start thinking about everything that comes after it but I mean I look forward to the journey. That's a hub. I know I'm talking here way too much but this one other question you talk about your dad and mom especially father being a father. You're you're making this journey. Is there a time and a place where he gave you some piece of advice or something that carried with you and and it's kind of shaped you as the young man you are. Yeah I mean my dad is he. I go to him for advice. uh-huh by far the most out of anyone even combined probably I go to him more than anyone else in my life for advice or for help You know he was a college. A two Sport College Athlete Fleet and he went to a very academically demanding school. You know he understands the struggle that you know. I would go through as a Academic as a student athlete. And you know something that he'll he told me a year or two years ago. was you know you're never going to be happy when you try. And achieve you've perfection because you're never going to achieve it and he said that that that's something that he feels that I'm body and that's something that you know. I was having having a difficult time. You know. I wasn't happy where I was In terms of athletics and said you know you're not gonna be happy as long because you're chasing perfection. That's that's very true. So you know I just gotTa you just gotTa Kinda buckle down and you gotta understand that you know if you demand perfection out Outta yourself. You're never really going to be satisfied kind of falls in line with one of the things that You know coach Harbaugh talks about and we talked about our family. It's it's really a journey one day at a time you know better today than yesterday better tomorrow today and you know perfection is is out there but just one percent better every day moving toward it. You'll as your dad's you'll never reach it which you can move toward it every every single day so a tremendous career. That of course is not quite done yet but a tremendous career Jordan Glasgow and the maize and blue and kind of want to cycle back to circle back to where we started. And we mentioned that you were the Rogers Act Cuff Award winner as the program's uh-huh top linebacker also voted by your teammates as the blue collar. Award winner so at the award ceremony when your name gets called I for the Rogers that cough. You're on a team. I remember taking a note during this going some years. You just know who's GonNa who's going to win the best lineman or the best linebacker the best and other years you like. There's like four guys. That could all win this so when they call your name over grown and Khaliq now what does it mean to you to know that you have stood out in your name is going to be on that wall for years to come. Yeah I mean that I was it was really nice to hear I mean I want like I saw my brothers names up there. You know for the last four years and and you know I really wanted to see my name up there in some way and I'm glad I was able to Reach their level in that case I you know it's it's it's a little disheartening to know that I play with such talented and promising people. And you know I wanted to share that award with Khaliq leak and that was you know my ideal situation you know. I didn't want to win it by myself. I wanted to see You know might teammate. Who Khaliq Catholic? Ninety eighty seven tackles. He had a great year. I wanted to see him recognized in the same way. And you know Campbell Campbell. Probably when it the next however many years he wants to play here so obviously he's an extremely promising person. I mean it was really nice. That the coaches felt that I I deserved that honor but I mean I wanted to see everyone else honored as well you know I play with a great group of guys and a very talented talented group of guys and I just want everyone to to be recognized as so it sounds like a very close knit room. That linebacker room is a pretty close knit group of guys. Yeah what what What makes that group special besides the town that we see on the field? You guys are in that room together. What makes it so special? I mean you know. A lot of us have been there for for multiple years and you know we accept people when they come in. We're not you know we see everyone is. I mean once you go through a spring ball here kind of been through the fire and you're accepted you're one of us so I mean I think we're just very accepting we have a great. You know we have high character guys. I think everyone that comes in you know they recruit very well and everyone just gets along. I also WANNA ask you about one of the Blue Collar award. That one voted by your teammates to really cool award. Because if you work hard immed- your teammates recognize what you're doing so when you win that award your name is call Thi meter hooting and hollering for you or your feelings. At that point. That was that was nice. This I mean to be to be recognized by both the coaches and the players. My teammates and my peers in some capacity was was was awesome. And I mean like that I mean there are other players who work very hard and I wish that they were recognized as well but To have my name singled out out fell filled. Amazing the consummate. The team the team the team Guy Right here Jack. The one thing I would suggest here as we as we wind this down is this is the Glasgow family. There should be a book written and I mean that's entirely all the years that I've been coaching and and follow all this thing. I mean what a fantastic example of young youngsters in and mentoring on the part of the parents and the place that they've they've allowed their their their youngsters to to move into a book. There's a book out there and you can have a sister at home right to I have the younger sister. WHO's currently in college at the University of Indiana? So how was it like for her with three older brothers. Yeah I mean I'm not I'm not sure and I don't I wanNA know but you know I'm sure she had. She had a tough time growing up and she's not the athletic necessarily assist the athletic type of person. And you know so things things were definitely different for her especially going to college Being a normal student but Uh I'm sure she's do. Okay well she the youngest yeah. She's the youngest of the four. Yeah I know it wasn't ours. We we had John and Jim were were fourteen months apart and then Joni sister Joanie came five years later so all we ever heard around the house was how easy easy it was for her. How we all? She was special and and she didn't have to go through the rigors that the two boys it suffered. That's what my that's what my brother say about about me. I got a lot of I got a lot of stuff a lot. Easier than You know I didn't have to do to piano lessons Because They wore my parents out pretty well with that and you know just a lot of other stuff that they had to Kinda work for you know. I got a lot easier but but I mean it's just one of the advantages of being a younger brother before we let you go your thoughts on the match with Alabama. I mean they're. They're going to be a great team. They are great team. They have great great receiving core in terms of their offense. They have great running back. Great Offensive Line quarterback. Who's doing very well so it's going to be? It's going to be a tough match up but I think that we're preparing. We're doing what we need to do to get ready. And I think we're going to be ready for the for the challenge that they provide that exciting heading for you and the outgoing guys at your last game in a Michigan uniform is not that any ballgame wouldn't be special but it's against Alabama Alabama's had a lot of success and you know the recent past last ten years and it's an opportunity to really show what we've got against A team that you know has been for the last decade touted as one of the best teams in College Football Jordan appreciate it thank you so much.

If I remember Yup we went to the hotel there and the night before the game. They had a mass and they invited a priest from one of the schools in in Providence. To come down and say the mass and did a fantastic job. After it was over I went up and told them I said you know. There's a Michigan's recruiting a young man from Providence.

Maybe like a year and change and then when I committed I committed to Don Don Brown when he was at BBC and when he had left I was kinda unsure like where things would go and then when he came to Michigan he got back. I can contact with me. And then he Brought me down for my first visit and I was when we played Wisconsin here when jd had one-handed Pixel it came to that game.
