On his team's trip to Rome, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, a man who usually has all the answers, was stumped.
Meeting with some refugees living in Italy, one decided to question the very fabric of the sport that Harbaugh loves so so much, thanks to footage from The Toledo Blade.

Before we get into the actual question, shoutout to Harbaugh for learning how to say he's a football coach in Italian.
"If you throw it by hand, why is it called 'football,'" the man asked Harbaugh.
Harbaugh couldn't give an answer, just shaking his head, saying "I don't know, I don't know. Good point."
The two settled on the name "throwball" as the best new moniker.
There you have it. Jim Harbaugh is a throwball coach.
