I'll bet you can't throw a football over those mountains over there...
Elway: As in the little fury animal, beaver?
Jim: Yeah!!! Hahahahaha
"...and then I said "What's YOUR deal?"
Elway: "Hey Jim, you hear that Jim McMahon's advertising a penis enhancement pill in the Chicago Sun Times?"
Harbaugh: The Punky QB?
Elway: "Guess he's not so cocky any more"
Regular-season pro games are a bigger ratings draw than the World Series!
...anyone but Harbaugh would be viewed as a disappointing second choice, IMO. As such, if Harbaugh isn't on board, Brandon may as well keep RR for one more year rather than regret a less-than-ideal second choice.
...Brady Hoke hire:
It significantly increases Michigan's chances of defeating San Diego State on Sep 24, 2011.
I just refuse to believe this will happen. If JH goes NFL I am pulling out my "All in for Rich Rod Again" T -Shirt.
We'll make sure to let Brandon know about your choice of clothing.
Does it say "All in for Casteel" on the back?
I was happy for the flu bug that hit MSU. Vary sad but true.
by such a flu bug.
May we catch it in September, have it last a little over four months, whereafter it shall be known as the MICHIGAN RAGE Flu.
This is one of the more depressing comments I have ever read on this blog.
I said back in 07 when Lloyd stepped down that they should go after Chris Petersen of Boise. The other candidate I conjured up that wouldn't be a expansive difference offensive style would be Kyle Wittingham of Utah. However, I do agree that Harbaugh will be their first choice though.
Well, I said back in 19XX I wanted some really successful coaches, in hindsight, to be hired. Guys like Mike Ditka or Vince Lombardi. Alas, I have no proof of this statement that I made either, but please believe my made up statement because it would make it sound really smart.
Those guys were speculated about then. Before the Miles fiasco Herbie advocated for Peterson. So it's not quite a stretch to think that could have happened.
The conversation that my comments took place in was a phone call home from Afghanistan to my brother about an hour after the Michigan-OSU game in 2007. We were doing nothing more than bantering back and forth of who we might like to see there in the future. Little did we know Lloyd announce his retirement the next day to the team.
Edit: I +1 each of you, since I should've been more specific from the start.
You did not need to be more specific. My list back then inlcuded Peterson as well. Who gives two shits that some interent asswad called you out for absolutely no reason whatsoever? I just can't believe someone would have that many tacks shoved up their ass that they would call bullshit on a harmless musing on the internet.
I'm with you on that Lomardi kid. He's an up and comer in the coaching ranks and I've heard from very reliable sources eating at a resturant my babysitter's boyfriend works at that he wants to coach at Michigan.
You got that wound up about some anonymous internet poster that you had to call him out and say "bullshit" that he wanted Peterson? As JH would say: "What's your deal"? You seem to have a larger amount of assbag in you than the average poster. I recommend medication.
Except that the past 2 Boise coaches to leave didn't fair so well...
Hawkins is without job after the Colorado disaster...
Houston Nutt is not doing a great job at Ole Miss...
You left out Dirk Koetter as well, who was with Boise from 1998-2000. Therefore, I can see how people may want to tread lightly with their coaches.
former Boise coach not doing so well - Dirk Koetter
I believe he's going to coach intramurals, brother.
I think the only coach the fans as a whole would be ok with is Gary Patterson, but that's not going to happen.
Chris Peterson. I think Chris Peterson would suffice and I think he would listen to us now that his two running mate non BCS teams have found BCS conferences and it looks like Boise never will.
His position has so eroded that keeping
him for one year makes no sense.He basically would be a year long lame duck.
Why do it anyways? We'll just be in this same position a year from now anyways. UM will still have to find a coach other than Harbaugh.
There are plenty of other good fits if you do your homework. To think that only Harbaugh can fill the position is ridiculous.
his first decision is NFL or college. if he picks NFL, we'll know soon enough.
and the 3-5 D next year at Stanford."
- pregnant pause -
"Ha ha ha ha ha" "ho ho ho ho"
The "not enough men on the field" defense eh?
Michigan runs a 3-man front on running downs!
I porked those clowns in the national media and they love me. I've met girls like that!
It is going to be a long, painful week. I just want it to be over.
JH is not going to expend life-energy trying to turn this guy into a pro QB:
All sizzle, no lasting power.
...on the NFL Network while talking to Jerry Sandusky, radio announcer for the Ravens:
"Well tell John Harbaugh to tell his brother, Jim 'Go Blue' for me. Will you please, Jerry. Just to say 'Hello'... that's all."
UofM alumni according the wikipedia. Nice.
basketball game, him and Stuart Scott, a UNC alum, we're talking some serious trash - in good fun, while wearing the tie colors of their respective teams. It was very awesome.
I don't think Stuart Scott let Rich live down that time---
I don't want to talk about it .. go blue!!
I can't wait to hear him say something on tv... I'm sure JH is thinking NFL but I can bet you he can't stand to see his school down and that will mean more to him.
I'm sure the ghost of Michigan Men past came to his house during the holidays and told him if he doesn't take the job Bo is coming back to kick his ass.
Someone needs to remind JH how the NFL worked out for Nick Saban.
and Steve Spurrier.
and his brother.....er.........wait.
They gave him a large amount of money for a short period of work, then he was able to get an even better job in college than the one he had before, making even more money, and he won a national title.
It isn't the shitty career move everyone seems to make it out to be. A similar fate (getting as good or better gigs at the college level after a few years of cashing monster NFL paychecks) has befallen Petrino, Riley, Erickson (twice), Spurrier, Butch Davis, etc. (not to mention b-ball coaches like Pitino, Calipari, Floyd, etc.).
You also get the "failure" tag that goes along with not being able to make it.
Not to metion, you'll never get another gig in the NFL.
Got two NFL jobs (left the Canes for Seattle and left Oregon St. for the Niners) despite pretty much no success at that level. In basketball, Tim Floyd got a second NBA job after no success with the Bulls. Pitino left Providence for the Knicks, sucked in the NBA, got the Kentucky job, left for the Celtics where he sucked again, then got the Louisville gig. But feel free to continue ignoring reality just because you want Jim Harbaugh to come to Michigan.
By your logic no one should ever take an NFL job because they might fail and never get another chance to take an NFL job. If others followed your logic, Tom Brady would never have started banging super models for fear he might not bring the thunder and after word got out on the super model rumor mill he would never again get the chance to bang a super model and so better just to not try in the first place.
I'm sure Nick feels terrible that everyone thinks he's a failure (and by everyone, I of course mean just you). Hopefully doing laps in his swimming pool full of gold coins while wearing his two national championship rings for resistance can provide some solace for his weary mind.
Don't forget Pete Carroll - bombed with the Jets - great gig in college - now an even better one in the NFL
Even if he ends up leaving Seattle, I'm pretty sure he'd be at the top of the wish list for a bunch of college athletic directors the next day.
