no, YOU'RE off topic
Nick Baumgardner wrote a pretty good article chronicling Coach Harbaugh's first month on the job at Michigan.
He really hit the ground running.
In his first two and a half weeks, Harbaugh officially hired nine staffers, a strength coach (Kevin Tolbert), hosted a major recruiting visit weekend, put plans together for two more and kick-started his team's offseason training program.
Not sure how much play this is getting nationally, but I thought it was a great contrast to how the PSU scandal was/is being handled. What if Mr. 409 handled the situation like those at Stanford have here? I wonder...
Crazy how big of a production this is now. There used to just be a press conference.
Now there's a whole day of stuff. Pre-show, post-show, presser mixed WTKA's double-digit hour coverage.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- MGoBlue.com, the official website of the University of Michigan Athletic Department, will provide exclusive coverage of National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 4, with two Inside Michigan Football Signing Day shows emanating live from Schembechler Hall. U-M will produce a live two-hour Signing Day Special Webcast from 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. ET, and will also air a one-hour Signing Day Wrap-up Show starting at 3 p.m.
The Inside Michigan Football Signing Day Special, powered by XFINITY, will be hosted by Michigan Athletics reporter Ed Kengerski and former Wolverine tight end Derrick Walker and will be streamed free of charge on MGoBlue.com. The IMF Signing Day Wrap-up will be hosted by Kengerski and Michigan football radio sideline reporter Doug Karsch.
Both shows will include behind-the-scenes access, video-highlight packages and biographical information on U-M's 2015 signees as well as interviews with select Michigan players and coaches. For additional coverage as National Letters of Intent are received, Kengerski will provide live updates every 30 minutes at the top and bottom of the hour until 2 p.m.

I'm surprised. Oakland is Oakland but I don't think of Louisville as a prestige program.
I guess TV money is leveling the playing field for coaching talent. Grantham made almost $1 million last season...at Louisville...crazy!
"I'm grateful for the opportunity to have interviewed for the defensive coordinator position with the Oakland Raiders, but I'm committed to the University of Louisville," Grantham said. "I said when I came to Louisville that I thought we could win a national championship, and we are building toward that goal with the success we had this season.
It's always cool to see MGoBlog mentioned in pieces by major sports outlets like ESPN and SI, but a full article is even better. Ace talks about the state of pre-Harbuagh recruiting, Harbuagh's first half class (2015) and his first full class (2016).
Also, importantly, the SI author (Martin Rickman) name drops the M00N game.
