He was working through something – had nothing to do with off-field suspension,” Harbaugh told reporters. “I heard Ed Cunningham got way out over his skis, speculating that it was some kind of suspension. Jourdan Lewis is one of the finest guys we have on the team – football character and off-the-field character…just total character. There’s few, if any, better than Jourdan Lewis. I just wanted to clarify that.”You can watch video of Harbaugh’s comments here.Michigan beat Hawaii, 63-3.The Wolverines (1-0) are set to face UCF on Saturday at noon.last_img read more
