Tom Brady, Jim Harbaugh play catch before Michigan game

As far as games of catch go, Saturday's pregame warmup at The Big House in Ann Arbor had about as much star power as you'll see in such an exhibition.

Tom Brady and Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh tossed the ball around prior to UM's game against Colorado. Have a look at the two in action:

After the game, Harbaugh said playing catch with Brady was "a thrill."

"When I look back on my career of playing catch with different people, that was right there with my dad, playing catch with my dad," Harbaugh said, per ESPN. "His pregame talk was outstanding. It was very good, very from the heart. He went through each position and he told them what they were expected to play like ... the guys who wore those uniforms and played that position before."

Brady returned to his alma mater on Saturday as an honorary team captain. The Patriots QB is serving a four-game suspension to open the NFL season for his role in the deflated football scandal.

He also had some fun with his son at the stadium on Friday night and posted video of one fine TD throw and catch.

Brady, of course, was a sixth-round pick out of Michigan in 2000 and the rest is ... well, you know.
