Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
The Harbaugh Pyramid of Greatness was created almost a year ago by Brian, Seth, @candor_for_sale, with help from the group. While it was amazing to start, now that we are a year into the Harbaugh Era, I think it should be updated. Add your suggestions for new boxes below. The hard part will be deciding what to cut, so I'll leave that up to the creators. Can get Seth's attention to have him make the changes?
I'll start with:
- CRACKER BARREL
- QUARTERBACKS can't have too many (alt: gotta catch 'em all)
- KNOWN FRIENDS and trusted agents
- BETTER THAN US nobody
- STEEL in your spine
- CLOTHES unnecessary (place next to RAGE and REFEREES on existing pyramid)
So, an interesting stat I was thinking about with 4 and 5 star guys (at least a partial measure of future success).
Jim Harbaugh at Stanford 2007 - 2011: 24 TOTAL 4 star recruits by 247 composite
Jim Harbaugh at UM 2015/2016 classes: 19 four or five star recruits (and still rolling)
POSBang - good things are coming.
He's the best:
If a UM football player is caught missing class, he has the choice of 5am conditioning or attending study hours with Harbaugh from 10pm-2am.— Ben Fidelman (@bfidelman) December 7, 2015

Following last second loss to MSU on Saturday, the mass media sure is playing up the future Buckeye departures to the NFL, questions about Meyer's leadership, loose lips sinking ships, and questions about team cohesion after the loss:
I did not expect this for an 10-1 team heading into big rivalry game, but there you have it.
I'm sure Ohio State will bring their best and try to end their season on a spectacular note in Ann Arbor.
I'm just surprised that Urban Meyer wouldn't re-assert control and put the kabosh on all the prima donnas players and their divisive comments.
As for future NFL depatures, I don't know that these talented players would have stayed anyway had they beaten MSU on Saturday. I think most were preparing to go anyway, because they can.
Should be a great game on Saturday for the seniors on both teams regardless.
