Pac-12 submits NCAA proposal aimed at preventing Michigan’s spring break practices in Florida

Jim Harbaugh used to be a member of the Pac-12 coaching fraternity but it turns out that isn’t doing him much good now that he’s no longer in the league and still ruffling feathers from coast-to-coast.

As pointed out by USA Today, the power five conferences recently submitted a host of new NCAA proposals for consideration at the association’s 2017 convention and one of them might be a bit eyebrow-raising to Wolverines fans.

It seems as though the Pac-12 has offered a proposal that would bar programs “from holding off-campus practices that are not related to an away or neutral-site game during a school vacation period that occurs outside a team’s regular playing season.”

Essentially, no more trips to Florida for Michigan’s spring practice. Harbaugh had made waves for taking his team to the IMG Academy for several spring practices, prompting a national discussion on the issue.

While many in the SEC were not happy at the practice, and even asked the NCAA to step in, it appears the Pac-12 is the one who actually submitted a formal proposal to limit the sojourns to warmer weather by Harbaugh and others.
