alternate headline: man does job
Memorial Stadium press box footage of the 1986 Indiana game. I don't believe this game was broadcast on TV.
The game is joined several minutes into the first quarter so Michigan's first TD is missing. According to MGoBlue.com, it was a QB sneak by Harbaugh.
Harbaugh's stats in this game: 16/24 for 300 yards and a touchdown.
Michigan did not recruit west of the Mississippi River in 1980. A few bowl wins would change all that as the program would grow to become a national power and no longer be a regional player.
Recruiting Florida since 1980...
In case you weren't aware, Pat Forde cares deeply for student athletes and is very concerned about their lack of free time, which is why he is against Harbaugh's spring break trip to Florida. Coincidentally, he also really likes Greg Sankey:
"Sankey is smart, principled and wonkishly integral to the NCAA structure - he's the current chairman of the Committee On Infractions..."
So, where are Sankey's comments regarding the current Ole Miss and Tennessee infractions and lawsuit? Oh, right, those issues don't have anything to do with losing recruits. And Sankey will make damn sure it stays that way.
I'm guessing Forde sees what's happening with Michigan/Harbaugh and can't stomach the thought of top southern recruits heading north to play for the leaders and the best, so he's doing whatever he can to voice his opinion and sway perception. What does Harbaugh have planned in case Sankey and the rest of the SEC get their way and prevent this trip? I can only hope the contingency is ready for deployment. If the trip does get blocked, how many recruits who weren't considering Michigan would then be wondering what all the hubbub was about? This ordeal could end up working out in Harbaugh's favor either way it plays out.
These things often get sorted out since elected officals will protect sports teams since one way to create a revolt is to defund the football team. However, it would personally give me pause regarding attending LSU knowing there is this instability. Regardless, the quality of education would likely be affected due cuts likely coming, they will not have full funding
Facing a budget crisis, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards says higher education in the state could be compromised. And that includes the possibility of college athletics in Louisiana being canceled.
...campuses could run out of money and be forced to shut down in April, highlighting the LSU football team as one of the potential losses from massive cuts to higher education funding.
"If you are a student attending one of these universities, it means that you will receive a grade of incomplete, many students will not be able to graduate, and student-athletes across the state at those schools will be ineligible to play next semester," Edwards said
Texas dismissed DB coach Chris Vaughn due to his ties to the NCAA allegations at Ole Miss, and demoted OC/WR coach Jay Norvell left for a job at ASU today in a post-Signing Day coaching purge. Strong already fired OC Shawn Watson and OL coach Joe Wickline this past December, and RB coach Tommie Robinson left for USC in a lateral job move in January.
In the 2014-2015 offseason, Texas fired WR coach Les Koenning and TE coach Bruce Chambers. DL coach Chris Rumph left Texas for Florida in a lateral job move.
None of the offensive assistant coaches remain from Charlie Strong's original Texas staff in 2014, and only 2 original assistants remain: DC Vance Bedford and LB/recruiting coordinator Brian Jean-Mary. And none of the staff changes have involved an assistant leaving for a promotion. I feel like Texas has their own "Three and Out" book brewing, but who knows maybe Strong & Texas will end up with a better ending.
