mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
Kind of a combo fact/opinion piece on Coach Harbaugh and the current state of college football. Worth a read, but won't ruin your life if you can't get to it. Haven't been on the board all day, so if it's been posted already, neg away.
What team would everybody choose to be a significant rival with Michigan Football over the next 25+ years (home and home games). Why?
I'd choose: Texas
It'd be two traditional powerhouses, Austin is a great city to visit, and there would be a cool factor of Southerns vs Northerners.
ESPN has a video preview of Jim Harbaugh prepping Jameis Winston for their Draft Academy series airing tonight on ESPN. I think this is from when he and Bryce Petty came to Ann Arbor earlier this year. Not much in it, but I had a hard time to keep from laughing watching it, especially when Jedd Fisch brings up the snow crabs. There is going to be a lot of Harbaugh on TV tonight between this and the HBO Real Sports profile.
Continuing the theme of coaching styles and what it takes to win here is an illuminating contrast of two teams as observed by the QB of the Redskins RG3. In summary the Redskins and Patriots held joint practices in August 2014. Washington went on to a 4-12 season and the Patriots won the Super Bowl. RG3 makes some observations about how the Patriots operate.
Former 49ers CB defends Jim Harbaugh and blasts Alex Boone. Some other stuff about tonight's Real Sports episode too.
