I'm about to head to sleep for the night, but found these pop up on twitter again:
Cutler's benching was 2-fold...Bad performances, more so "last ditch effort to get Harbaugh" by Bears via trade. I'm told it's "Too Late"
According to Chris Balas tweet, Harbaugh will simply be fired, and not attempted to be traded.
This is good news for UM, yes?
EDIT: Thanks to BeatOSU_52 for the screengrab of the tweet mentioned
The title tells it all.
"The preponderance of the evidence has not shown that you are responsible for any of the charge violations of the Code," Major Harding, a former Florida State Supreme Court Chief Justice who oversaw the case, said in a letter to the parties obtained by the Associated Press and USA Today. "Namely, I find that the evidence before me is insufficient to satisfy the burden of proof."
Go Lions! Go Bucs! Go Harbaugh!
In the dark days between the afternoon of Saturday September 27th and the press release of 1 am Tuesday September 30th, confidence in the football program's direction was at its nadir.
The only man in a position to intervene was a man approaching his third month on the job as University President, with no background in managing schools with large athletics departments. We held our breath.
Even with the possibility that we whiff on the Harbaugh, our confidence that we are on the right track with interim AD Hackett (with the "interim" growing less obligatory) in charge grows with each day.
It all started with a "quick study" by a man who could not have wanted this challenge any less.
