alternate headline: man does job
Looks like Jim is going to tee it up this week at Pebble Beach with the pros. Lots of questions on my mind.
1. Does he make the cut to Sunday? (The competitor in him must be burning to make the cut.)
2. Attire? (Full Harbaugh? Rickie Fowler high tops and joggers?)
3. How's the swing? (Smooth athletic swing with the help of coaching or a unique home grown swing?)
4. Clubs? (Assuming a new bag of Taylormades)
5. Pro to be paired with? (My pick: Jason Day)
Good luck to our coach out there. Hit them straight and enjoy yourself!
EDIT: Swing looks pretty good; smooth just like his recruiting pitch.
He's in the studio now!
Jim Harbaugh is supposed to be live on set with Mike and Mike at 8:30 this morning. Should be interesting to hear the conversation as they have been kind of critical of his recruiting tactics and the Signing of the Stars event.
I know a lot of people around here are not fans of theirs, but figured I would pass along the info.
Maybe having a single open thead for hot takes, twitter stalking / updates, and ball flips is a good idea?
So with National Signing Day now just a few days away, there's this funny, sort of dumb narrative that's been going around that is cute, but 100 percent incorrect.
That narrative? That Jim Harbaugh is a crazy person.
If anything, I believe the last few weeks have shown the exact opposite: That it's all part of Jim Harbaugh's master plan. That in addition to being a football genius, he's a marketing genius too. And on Sunday, he may have pulled off his greatest --- and smartest --- stunt yet.
Hard to say a lot more about the character of President Schlissel.
Besides the obvious accomplishments (removing Brandon, convincing Hackett to leave retirement, Harbaugh, Manuel), he's also brought in a top-notch CFO, by all accounts is working to eliminate a culture of having "yes-people" throughout the University, and is humble enough to rely on experts in those areas where he's not well-versed.
EDIT: clarified accomplishments.
