Would I rather have Filet or Ground Chuck (with a health issue)?
Dolphins decide to keep Sparano
I think he's as old as Paterno, if not departed from this earth by now.
I'm calling he is staying at Stanford, especially with Luck returning. NFL after next season.
agree (under normal circumstances I'd just +1 you)
Maybe the ghost of Bo visited him like Obi-Wan and told him to get his ass back to Ann Arbor!
Photoshop Request: Bo as a hologram with a real neat word bubble saying "Help us Jim Harbaugh. You're our only hope......Or doom. We've got that as an option too."
With Luck returning to Stanford, I think Harbaugh will probably return to the Farm if he doesn't go to the NFL.
My uncle's brother in law's sister's accountant's son plays at Stanford and said that JH was coming to Ann Arbor all along. The only holdup is that he just loves seeing his face on TV
I just found out today that a grad student that works in my lab has a brother who played for JH at SDU for a year (then quit the football team). He doesn't know anything about the situation now though.
Uhh, I think you missed the joke.
My wife's sisters daughters friends mother said she heard it from a friend of her friend that her friend said he wasn't.
This has turned into the craziest story. It seems like every hour there is a new story about Harbaugh. I agree with wlubd, I think he is staying at Stanford. Especially now that Luck is staying there another year.
Never say never...
Is Vegas laying odds on where Harbaugh ends up next year?
DON'T TOY WITH ME, UNIVERSE
Goes to show nobody knows anything.
Socrates was ahead of his time man. Ahead of his time.
$50 says he's staying at Stanford.
Your on! This is the best news we've heard all day, I have a tingling feeling right now!!
...and add a dollar. Seems alil fishy (no pun intended) that JH and the Dolphins didn't work out hours after Luck decides to return to Palo Alto. I think the prodigal son is staying in Stanford
Harbaugh is making the right move based on Luck's decision. Stay at Stanford, a school who is less than passionate about football, so he can coach Luck for exactly one more season and no longer. Meanwhile he is passing up huge money in the NFL and his theoretical dream college job. Yup, makes perfect sense. I would make the same move....if I were CRAZY. Passing up all of these opportunities based on coaching one more year with a great quarterback? Use some logic here. Jim is coming home soon!
Staying at Stanford gives Harbaugh a chance to coach Luck and other players he has a bond with for one more season as well as a great shot at a national title, or at least another BCS bowl season to bolster his resume even more. Then, he'll probably be able to once again take his pick of be several NFL jobs. And he could have even more bargaining power to get more control over whatever team he winds up at. Obviously there's some risk here (a potential lockout could stop coaches from being fired, Stanford could have a disappointing year, etc.), but it's not a terrible move from his standpoint.
JH stays too? So Harbaugh stiffs UM and now his other UM ties at Miami who were looking at a coach while deciding whether to fire their existing coach.
Well, it's official then, Harbaugh is going to leave Stanford to take over Domino's. Case closed.
Phoenix University will be forming a football team and Harbaugh will coach them from home in his pajamas. Latest news
Nike? Adidas? Fashion Bug?
Inquiring minds need to know.
Hmmm... very telling. Never have an away game...
GODDAMMIT NOW WE CAN'T HIRE TONY SPARANO
On the plus side, Manginius is still available.
SF, maybe, if he wants to coach in the pros. Michigan if he wants college. Stanford if he wants the pros but doesn't like the current options. I said before, maybe because I want it to be so, that the negotiations with the pros is the best way to get Michigan to improve its offer. If the Dolphins pass on JH to retain Sparano, either JH withdrew or JH luster in the pros is waning. Either way I like the development
is no coincidence that Stephen Ross was meeting with Harbaugh . . . . There are "things" underway and Harbaugh will be the next Michigan coach.
I just want him to pick Stanford or whomever and get this over with. I hate getting renewed hope only to watch it get crushed
tribe of 87 says he's coming to michigan
...As long as we don't Low Ball him.
Who is "tribe of 87"
Forgive me in advance if this is obvious and I'm just hammered and dense. Yes, I've been on a bender since the press conference.
I guess he decided NOT to take his talents to South Beach.
The guy has met with two nfl programs and no definite offer...
conspiracy!!! It is Ross's idea to get Harbaugh to Mich!! double San Frans offer to get them to back off and line him up with UofM!! I figured it out!!!!1!!!1!!!
Check out this guy's wiki sometime. He's worth $4.5 billion, owns 95% of the Dolphins and their stadium. Ross co-chaired U-M's fund-raising drive and serves on Impressively Titled Advisory Boards in the AD, as well as chairing or trusteeing half a dozen other uber-organizations. The man is a kingpin. I'm not donning my tinfoil hat just yet, but he's definitely a major, major player for UM.
He also really really liked RR, and was pissed about the entire fractioned situation, and his subsequent firing, apparently and fwiw.
This tin foil is itchy.
Guess that thwarts any open-and-shut interpretation of his actions.
was to show Brandon who really had pimp hand in the situation and the ability to move the pieces however he wanted.
If true, that would not suppor the conspiracy theory. What is your source on Ross not being happy with RR being fired?
I watched an interview with Mr. Ross at the beginning of the season and he basically said he supported RR and UM but if they struggled he would be ready for a change.
till it's over.
Michigan Coach Search Hating God is effing with us big time on this shit..... we seriously need to figure out what we did to piss Michigan _____ Hating God off and get him to GTFO of Ann Arbor!
Harbaugh looks like a young Lloyd Carr in that banner up there. Very telling...
has Ross become Don Corleone?
