Reunited on opposite sidelines, Jim Harbaugh and Andrew Luck helped pave each other's path

Andrew Luck still has all that humble charm Jim Harbaugh loves about him.

No, Luck has not yet purchased himself a smartphone because his simple old flip model continues to serve him well — making and receiving calls, sending and receiving text messages. No, he doesn't accept flashy endorsement deals, not until he earns the right with his performance on the field for the Indianapolis Colts.

Luck played quite a role in landing Harbaugh his first NFL coaching job. Harbaugh helped pave the path to the quarterback becoming the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft out of Stanford.

They will be reunited as opponents Sunday, finding themselves in the strange position of game-planning against each other in Week 3 while trying to bounce back from tough losses.
