This comes after the news of a rumored "special announcement" at halftime of the Michigan Basketball game on 12/30. Yeeeeeeeeeeeee
Got a text from a former player last night: “Gonna be a good new year in A2.”— Joshua S. Henschke (@JoshuaHenschke) December 24, 2014
One of ESPN's college football analysts was on the radio this morning talking about OSU's QB situation next year. They mentioned the possibility Braxton Miller graduates early and transfers to play somewhere else next year. Would you like to see our next HC go after him?
If all these 70-85% gut feelings are accurate, then we know our next HC has run read option in San Fran. I think Shane and our other QBs have the talent to be good, but I don't know if they would be our best option come late August. I assume we could deal with a Buckeye transferring in since there seemed to not be a large, vocal opposition to Herman in the head coaching posts. Is it worth it to "recruit" Braxton Miller?
Many people have been hitting F5 all morning so I spied on another site and found a comment like this:
Sources within Schembechler Hall said to look for a very special announcement at halftime of the Illinois BBall game on Dec. 30th.Sounds about right (as a rumor)
I'm on the second leg of a road trip to Florida for Christmas. I was depending on my searchbits to get me through the trip, as it was already going to be a struggle. Unfortunately, I got the crippling news that my supplier will have no searchbits available until December 26th, at least. I am experencing massive withdrawals; headache, nausea, the chills. Point being, searchbits is one hell of a drug. How are you handling two days of no searchbits?
In all seriousness, thanks Brian for all your hard work and enjoy your days off!
My very first content thread, be nice. Christmas Day Eve and we need some Harbaugh Optimism today. X Mas tomorrow so we all hope Jim has a great day with his family before joining his new family next week as the " U of M" Head Coach. We can cross off 2 days for this coach search Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, still religious in most circles. Rumor still has it that Harbaugh to Michigan is 85% in most circles except for the NFL Bobble Heads although some are beginning to accept the possibilty and doing some backtracking on their prior stance of "No Way Harbaugh will Coach at Michigan". This post is all good things Harbaugh.
Merry Christmas to all of the Mgoblogers your family's & friends, and this is to hoping we all get what is on our "Wish List" for Christmas. Harbaugh! Harbaugh! Harbaugh! The Team, The Team, The Team.
Tis' The Season to Believe!
To not be misunderstood. This is a HARBAUGH TO MICHIGAN THREAD. Lots and Lots of OPTIMISM. IT'S HAPPENING! LESS THAN A WEEK AND THE WAIT WILL BE OVER! Could be one great New Years Celebration!
Please forgive me if this has been discussed. Has the possibility been brought up that the 49ers let Jim Harbaugh out of his current contract if he agrees not to sign with another NFL team? It seems odd but it most certainly would be in their best interest as they don't want him but know him to be a good coach. Why would they want another potential opponent in the NFL to land him?
I remember a similar issue with Billy Donovan and the Orlando Magic. When Billy had a change of heart after signing, Orlando let him out of his contract but he had to agree not to coach in the NBA for X amount of years. I can't remember what.
If this is the case then it works out great for the University of Michigan as they get their coach and do not have to pay the buy out terms.
Just read a Washington Post article quoting John Harbaugh believing Jim to be fired next week.
