Michigan Football Players Enjoy a Free Moment to Recreate ‘The Lion King’ (Video)

Sure, Jim Harbaugh might be a bit of a hard-ass when it comes to his coaching approach and general demeanor, but that doesn’t mean that his players can’t take a few minutes of downtime to…recreate Disney movies?

I’m not entirely sure this Lion King clip is organic, as it just smacks of some UM PR person who just learned what a viral video is.  But it’s hard not to appreciate the players’ enthusiasm for the subject matter. Take a look:

I certainly don’t wish any of these kids harm, but what would make this video REALLY viral is if starting QB John O’Korn blew his knee out while doing this re-enactment. THAT would get millions of views.
