Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
Apparently, user @MarktheNomad tweeted a little while back that, if Harbaugh came to Michigan, he'd get a tattoo of Harbaugh's face from his guest spot on Saved by the Bell...
Looks like it's time to pay the piper. Seems like he's even set up a funding page to collect donations:
Tim Drevno has been reported as a OL hire, but he appears to be our new OC. This, I think, is great news. I had reservations about Roman as OC.
The quotes from 49ers Webzone are not offered as definitive of anything (random fan-rants), but there was a TON about frustration with Roman, and that loyalty to Roman caused part of the rift with management. Just a data point. (Edit - removed tweets referenced by Brian.)
The coach, coached them up to play, and it worked for awhile. The players have seen it all. Here comes a real OC. LET THE WINNER(us) OF SUPER BOWL XLIX HAPPEN IN OUR STADIUM. We have made a lot of history. We will all miss Harbaugh. We will not miss Roman. Fangio stays.
Unfortunately, because I like the guy, he's too damn hard-headed to adapt and navigate the kind of turmoil we experienced this year. He could have fired Roman and proved to the players that he's willing to make moves to make their lives easier. But he stuck with Captain Potato and lost the locker room in doing so. I wish him the best, but he can kindly GTFO immediately if he's already agreed to coach elsewhere.
ten years later when i am gumming doughnuts at the old folks home, i will be saying,, it is still amazing how many games we won in spite of roman and i will still be pissed that the coaches, who are supposed to do what is best for the team, did not allow them to win or at least try to win a perfectly winnable super bowl.. so you think luck would have been able to overcome bad clock management, burning time outs, having to take delay of game penalties? jh/roman bathwater drinkers are either unable or unwilling to admit that stuff is on the coaches and has been since the day they walked into headquarters and those things had nothing to do with whoever is quarterbacking our team
While there are 9 hours to go in the Michigan time zone until 2015 some of us will begin to drop off as we prepare for a night of festivities (while checking our phones every few
hours hour half-hour minutes for MOAR good news). Our European Wolverines are just about to enter New Year in a few hours and our Asian/Australian Wolverins are already there so Happy New Year to all.
2014 was a trying year on so many levels especially with football but the early departures in basketball esp Mitch being forced out of the NCAA, were a downer too. But thinking back to where things stood on Oct 1 vs Jan 1 (well almost) it's an amazing 180 turn. Confidence in Schlissel, Hackett - very high - we barely knew Schlissel Oct 1, and none of us knew Hackett.
Both our top revenue programs now are in the hands of builders. We have become used to our basketball team growing as the season builds month by month.... it's been lacking in the football program. No more. Year over year Beilein jumps will be joined by Harbaugh leaps. Two good men of high moral ground with top notch acumen. They are winners in life and role models that their players will be talking about for decades after they graduate.
I dont follow all the sports like some of you guys but continued success to women's softball, let's see some more turnaround in hockey and good vibes to the rest of the sports as well.
Thanks Brian and staff for this place to gather thru good and bad times. Ace wishing you best health in 2015 and ability to withstand the avalanche of typing of HELLO posts coming in next 5 weeks.
So difficult to pick a best photo of yesterday but as we move forward into 2015 with ridiculous momentum let's just use this one and say "WE ARE IN GOOD HANDS".
WHO'S GOT IT BETTER THAN US? NOBOOOODY

Well, we have a new holiday, Harbaugh Day, forever to be celebrated on Dec 30th. We earlier determined this will be a 9 day celebration beginning on Festivus (Dec 23rd) and finishing up on January 1st with our most holy of holy days being Harbaugh Day.
December 23rd – Festivus
December 24th – Christmas Eve
December 25th – Christmas
December 29th – Harbaugh’s Eve
December 30th – Harbaugh Day (or Harbaughnukkah as suggested by some)
December 31st – New Year’s Eve
January 1st – New Year’s Day
We will have to give names to Dec 26, 27, & 28, but I'll leave those decisions for our first Council of Harbaughnicea.
Bonus years will be when Ramadan and or Hanukkah occur during our 9 days of Harbaugh and more excessive drinking will be mandated.
This begs the question…do we need to re-set our calculation of what year it is? Currently we have the disagreement between folks using Anno Domini (AD & BC) vs. folks using Common Era (CE & BCE). I’m suggesting we resolve the nomenclature dispute between AD and CE, by restarting the calendar with 2015 becoming year 1. The new year tomorrow is 1 Anno Harbaugh (1 AH). Last year becomes 1 Before Harbaugh (1 BH).
Now I know this could confusing to some of our less intelligent conference opponents given Jim Harbaugh was born in the year 51 BH, but we’ll understand it and that is all that counts.
Also, know that the second millennium AH will begin on 1 January 1001, not 1 January 1000 as there is no year zero.
I think we’re best sticking with the Gregorian system, but if somebody wants to convert us over to a lunar or luni-solar system, we could look at that too.
Harbaugh is with us and I'm still doing my happy dance.
Ok, so I've done a couple Harbaugh-themed works in the past day and saw at least one request for them to be posted. I will be working on a Beilein painting to pair with the Harbaugh one, In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these. I suppose the Harbaugh painting could be used as a mobile wallpaper, however, it was purely for fun at this point, so it's not sized appropriately to be perfect. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions are always welcome. The inspiration for the painting came from learning how to do some painting-effects in Photoshop and blending with old paintings to make them look plausible. I think, for a first attempt, it turned out pretty well. I'm sure I'll get better with practice and this is, after all, not my day job. I have four more days of freedom until I'm bound by work duties again, so I'll try to bang out some more work for ya'll in that time frame. God Bless and Go Blue! HAPPY NEW YEAR! HARBAUGH!
