somehow we're only 124th
In the incredibly unlikely scenario that Harbaugh does not become the head coach of Michigan and is abducted by aliens (I can't think of any other reason he wouldn't become Michigan's coach), what would we all do? SERIOUSLY? What would we do!? Currently we have a thread dedicated to Harbaugh themed Christmas songs. Have we ever had so many eggs in one basket? Is that basket woven from Harbaugh's hair and are those eggs actually tiny Harbaugh heads with little headsets on that are singing Harbaugh Christmas songs? I would be worried about the health of the fans and people I don't even know. Seriously, what would you do guys? Should I be worried about my own health? Is the fact that I'm actually posting this thread answering that question?
Title says it all. Connor Cook says he has "unfinished business," and "the only way to accomplish it, is to comeback."

The Chicken Littles vs. Polly Annas betting thread that reshp1 (I think?) was doing earlier in the fall dropped off after it became apparent that this season would be an abyss of sadness, but they were cool while they lasted. Nice way to get folks to give to good causes. I thought it'd be fun to resurrect them now that we have a thing which we pretty much all agree has a clearly binary positive/negative outcome, much as a football game does: Harbaugh 2 Michigan 4 Lyfe, Or Not. Praise Harbaugh.
I am in the camp of people who don't think he is coming.
That said, if he does come, I will give a $25 cash donation to the charity of choice* of the first person to reply to this thread.** If he does not come, that same first responder has to make a $25 donation to the Washington Animal Rescue League (warl.org).
Any subsequent posters can offer similar person-to-person wagers, with the first responder to that comment completing the wager.
Meanwhile, I will be hoping that someone takes this bet and that I then lose it.
*No political or politically-tinged charities. Let's keep this place politics-free.
**I am also willing to eat a lemon in lieu of making a donation, and post a video of said eating.

With the departure of Ferns, along with some potential early departures, we are looking at a recruiting class of 12-14 players. Rather than focusing on who exactly we are getting, how will the new coach fill the spots in limited time, etc. I am looking at where Michigan's recruiting needs are based on position.
Michigan should be taking a QB every year regardless of depth charts, and based on current needs we certainly need 1 here.
Unfortunately for Drake Johnson (and Michigan) his latest injury hurts depth now and in the future. As it stands there should be 4 contributors for next year so RB isn't a dire need, but a need nonetheless.
This is a position that can be filled by walk-ons and I don't see the need for offering a scholarship unless we are in on a truly elite player.
We are looking at 5 players here for 2 starting positions so this is certainly an area of utmost need.
Another position that needs depth and any real playing time logjams can be alleviated by moving someone outside.
Another position lacking depth and potential position switchers, so the need here for a true TE is needed.
Depth here is always tenuous so Michigan needs to take at least 1 true OT in 2015.
This is not a dire need but Michigan can never have enough linemen. This position looks the most likely to be filled.
The only players that have taken snaps here recently are both leaving after 2015 so this is a very important position to fill.
This is a well stocked position and with the small class size looks to be a position left un-recruited.
Depth not as great here so getting a NT (or NT/DT type) is definitely a need.
This position lacks depth and needs playmakers. This is the one position I see that needs to be filled even if the player is considered a flier.
This position has good depth and can be filled in by other D-Linemen.
With a new coaching staff coming in the positions here are bound to be somewhat reshuffled. Regardless depth is good but still needs a recruit to fill in for outgoing players.
This position is well filled and the small size of recruiting class should prevent anything but an elite prospect being recruited.
This is position is very lacking in depth and Michigan should be taking 2 players here even if they are not highly touted recruits.
After graduations Michigan needs at least 1 Kicker/Punter type recruit.
I was trying to hit the 12 Scholarship # but I still managed to reach 14. Earlier I thought based on the small recruiting class size it wouldn't be a bad idea to bank some scholarships for 2016. However it looks like Michigan should be using at a minimum 10 scholarships in 2015.
