"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Thought this was a good read. Really puts emphasis on the way Harbaugh closes this recruiting class as a crucial variable for future success:
This, basically, is Harbaugh's first full class. It's the first class the staff has had a full year to work on. And it's the most important class he'll sign because it'll be the backbone of his program.
Take Ohio State as an example. In Urban Meyer's first full class, the 2013 group, he hauled in names like Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, Vonn Bell, Jalin Marshall, J.T. Barrett, Eli Apple, Gareon Conley and more. That's the backbone of Ohio State's national title squad right there. Brady Hoke's first full class (2012), as a contrast, produced exactly one All-Big Ten player to date (Devin Funchess).
The race to the first Wednesday in February is always important. Right now, for Michigan, it's beyond critical.

Steve Lorenz posted that Jay Harbaugh is visiting with Isaac Nauta today, right on the heels of Georgia's dismissal of Mark Richt. The timing could not be better, so hopefully this will work to U-M's advantage in persuading Nauta to head north!
