At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
Whether or not it's my naivete, or sense of pride that no Michigan Man would turn down the opportunity to return, I still do not believe reports that DB offered Miles the job. Even though they are former teammates and Miles is a higher-profile Michigan Man name, I think with all the smoke around Les about potential minor violations and other general shenanigans would have kept him from doing so:
In any event, I think we're going to be better off, but just curious to hear what others think of these reports?
MVictors has a pretty cool piece about TSIO's stadium and someone that spent two years creating a Lego replica.
So I'm placing a call to our Lego engineers and architechs to respond to this piece of Buckeye Lego art.
Just remember this if you try to build a Big House replica:
Well, that was short-lived.
While the OC position has been known since coach Hoke was fired, the DC position remains unfilled. If were getting a member of the Michigan Mafia such as Austin, Heater or Bedford, one would guess that we could have gotten them relatively quickly (especially given the fact that Austin is currently unemployed and Heater was before going to Temple).
Could the lack of a hire mean that we're going after a big name like Randy Shannon? Or does DB feel that he needs to go through a six-day chasing period even though he knows who is going to get hired?
Next to abysmal defense, the next worst area of performance for Michigan football teams has come from Special Teams. This is not just a recent phenomenon; special teams debacles have haunted Michigan for years. Will Brady Hoke change this tradition?

This seems to be lot like the Brady Hoke resume - a couple of good years among a sea of mediocrity (or worse). Hopefully, there will be more of an emphasis on special teams, but then again, hope is not a strategy.
Aaron Rodgers pulls through, book it.
