Title says it all.
That's President Of The United States, if there is a next stop.
Seriously, wasn't Jim amaizing in the presser? He batted any gotcha questions away like flies.
His team will run through a brick wall for him. He just needs to be careful that no one pulls a Gus Ferrote.
(I think at halftime, he just wanted to keep the focus on the game and put in a few obligatory comments to effect that desire.)
Given that many posters are getting trash talk from Ohio and MSU people, I thought it would be useful to give you some ammunition. So, I compiled a comparison of Meyer vs. Harbaugh (you will quickly see why Dantonio does not belong here).
Meyer ranks #10 in college win pct; Harbaugh ranks #5 all time in the NFL.
Meyer won college coach of the year twice in 30 years of coaching
Harbaugh won both college and NFL coach of the year in 11 years.
Meyers’ teams finished #1 nationally twice in 30 years.
Harbaugh won AFC* and NFC titles and went to 3 NFC title games and a Super Bowl in 6 years.
The team that won Meyer's titles (Fla) had previously finished #1 in the nation under another coach (Steve Spurrier, who also compiled a higher win pct there than Meyer)
Harbaugh’s Stanford team had never in history finished #1 in AP or UPI/coaches’ polls, but Harbaugh took their (recently 16-40 team) to their highest rank in 75 years (#4)
Meyer spent 15 years coaching college kids as an assistant. Harbaugh spent 14 years as an NFL QB, going to the Pro Bowl and winning the AFC player of the year.
*as QB coach
ahead of George Halas, Don Shula, Bill Belichick, Bill Walsh, Pete Carroll, Bill Parcells, Chuck Noll, Mike Ditka, John Gruden,
Behind John Madden, Vince Lombardi, George Allen….but hey….pretty impressive
PS Saban did not make the list (.47 win pct)
|13||Jim Lee Howell||0.66|
(The internet site lists coaches with a min 50 games. To enable comparison with old timers, the site does not include playoff record. (JH was 5-3) but that would not significantly affect JH's relative ranking. Note that I added in Jim's game today)
