there would have to be some to wash away
I'm not making a CC post, I just found this part of the column interesting.

To underscore how much Harbaugh appreciates the Big Ten, it's important to remember how impassioned he became four years ago at the thought of becoming head coach at another Big Ten university: Michigan State, just after John L. Smith had been fired.
Granted, this was in the days before Stanford hired him away from the University of San Diego, but Harbaugh was so exhilarated by the thought of coaching a major program in a conference, and within a recruiting region, he knew intimately, that he would have crawled to East Lansing to put his imprint on a team waiting for its potential to be exploited. Even if it was his alma mater's hated rival.
Does anyone remember this?
With the commitment of Desmond Morgan, and the prior commitment of Kellen Jones, we have two linebackers. Obviously, we still have Frost as a prospect. How many LBs could we take, and how interchangable or different are the needs at OLB & MLB?
Regarding Avery Walls going to Cal, the comment was made that we better hope to get Royster, as the only remaining safety prospect. Does this mean that we are no longer being considered by Lyons, who I thought was also a safety? Or are the roles filled by Royster & Lyons significantly different?
I've got my tickets, but aside from the game, I'm not looking forward to New Years in jacksonville. Anyone live there or spend time there...and knows what's going on for the holiday?
Not sure if Pete Carroll would even consider Michigan but....
Let's say Rich Rod gets another year, then perhaps gets fired. Pete Carroll will be a bottom feeder in the NFC West next year and anyone with a clue knows he left because of the USC scandal. Carroll gets canned, and wishes to return back to college and Michigan could possibly be the highest profile job with the most recruiting power nest season.
According to the Smoking Musket (WVU blog) Bill Stewart will resign after the Mountaineers' bowl game. I'd seen several reports throughout the day that hinted at this, but this is the first concrete statment about the situation.
Oklahoma St OC Dana Holgorsen is expected to replace Steward. Interestingly enough, Holgorsen had recently declined to seek the Pittsburgh opening.
As if the logo and the unbelievably
bad ridiculous names for the future trophies weren't enough, the Big 10 offices chose "Legends" and "Leaders" as names for our divisions in football. What I want to know is, what names could they have discussed which later were deemed to be worse than Leaders and Legends? It is seriously difficult to think of names that could be worse, but I'll take a stab at some that I am glad they did not chose, please feel free to add....
Zambonies/Slot Ninjas (we'd need a division of our own)
