Enjoy and GO BLUE!!
During intermission at the Preds game, I looked up at the TV monitors above the bar and saw Coach Harbaugh being interviewed at the Kentucky/Vanderbilt basketball game. He gives a great explanation why he was there:
I saw this tweet and realized both people in this picture are Michigan coaches. It reminded me of the day we hired Jay Harbaugh and all the skepticism from our fans and downright disrespect from rival fans. Many thought he was under qualified and hired based on nepotism.
After 2 years, how do you feel about this hire in hindsight? I initially thought he wouldn't get a fair shake as a TE coach on our staff because even if the position group plays well, he wouldn't get the credit for it and that has pretty much held true.
How do you guys feel about him today?
I saw the final AP poll posted earlier, but I thought some would be interested in seeing all the final advanced stat ratings as well. The advanced stats were much higher on Michigan than the final polls.
S&P+ and ESPN FPI rated our bowl performance as our worst performance of the season which is a big contrast from how Michigan finished in the bowl last year.
