About a week and a half ago, Stanford offerred to sweeten Harbaugh's contract at Stanford, solely for the purpose of keeping him there. Nothing has yet been signed. It seems to me that, if Harbaugh truly wanted to stay there, he would try to sign something pretty quickly or at least make some kind of statement to quash all the "Harbaugh to Michigan" rumors, which are surely hurting his recruiting at Stanford.
To me this is evidence that Harbaugh is coming, mostly because I doubt that he would leave Stanford hanging just to wring a few more bucks out of them or if he didn't have strong feeling that the Michigan job could be his. Of course, this is just speculation like everything else, but I haven't seen this angle discussed here. Any thoughts?
