The man who may end up fielding the most media requests leading up to the Super Bowl isn't a member of either team. But as the father of both head coaches in the game, Jack Harbaugh has plenty of people eager to pick his brain and have him tell stories about the boys.
So far the elder Harbaugh hasn't done any interviews since Jim's 49ers and John's Ravens won their conference championship games Sunday.
That has left the media to revive relevant material from the archives, such as this feature on Jack in ThePostGame that ran just before the 49ers faced the Ravens on Thanksgiving night in 2011.
On the premiere of its latest episode Tuesday night, HBO's "Real Sports" revisited its 2011 feature on the Harbaughs. But it also produced a bonus online-only segment in which Jack talks about how much Jim coveted quarterback Colin Kaepernick leading up to the 2011 NFL draft. It was a selection Jack endorsed long before the 49ers actually used their second-round pick on Kaepernick, who was the sixth quarterback taken (Cam Newton, Jake Locker, Blaine Gabbert, Christian Ponder and Andy Dalton).
