Wait for Jim Harbaugh home opener at Michigan is almost over

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -

Jim Harbaugh's home debut as Michigan's coach has created quite a buzz in a town beat down by a string of lackluster seasons under Brady Hoke and Rich Rodriguez.

Since Lloyd Carr retired following the 2007 season, the college football team with the most all-time wins was just four games over .500 under Hoke and Rodriguez.

Harbaugh chose to return to the program where he was a quarterback for Bo Schembechler in a city he grew up loving when his dad worked for the late, great coach.

Eight-plus months after Harbaugh was hired in a move hailed by graduates and fans of the school, he will lead the Wolverines in their home opener Saturday against Oregon State.

The Wolverines (0-1) hope to keep the atmosphere festive with a win after starting the season by losing 24-17 at Utah.
