The year is 2030. Jim Harbaugh is coming off of his 5th NC with michigan, and Dave Brandon, retired for three years, finishes writing his tell all book about the coaching change. BKFinest it
Friday morning 'WTF is going on?' thread
But if the latest reports are accurate (which you should doubt), then it's starting to look like Harbaugh may be content where he is and may have just been using his newfound status as the hottest coach in America to get a bigger payday out of Stanford.
Baby Charlie Weis?
Miss you big guy! XOXO
So I can't think of anything useful to add.
is the more than likely NFL strike and possible cancellation of the 2011 season. I suspect Ross told him this would happen. JH does not want to sit out a year.
I'm trying to think but nothing happens!!!
ONLY 5 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 20 YEARS?!? RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE
Tony Dungy on Michigan coaching gig: " I'm glad they didn't call " Dungy said. He added that they would be tough to say no to.
Call him quickly!!!
Elway says Harbaugh down to 2 - Stanford and....
We'll show up to watch your teams.
but I have a pimple on my ass that is chafing me right now. That is the only certainty.
It all makes sense now. thank you.
middle of the right cheek
Irish in the coffee will make one drunk by 9AM.
Pete Carroll did the same thing when he was getting interest from NFL teams. He'd meet with NFL teams and gauge their interest, learn about the organizational structure of the teams, etc. But it was all for naught as he would return to his college team.
Don't deny there's a little part in all of us that wants to see JH at SF so these two could renew acquaintances. There would literally be the possibility of them throwing down at midfield.
Not in me. I could care less about the NFL, and am actively working on it. Harbaugh sticking Carroll would give me zip for vicarious pleasure.
JH: "What your deal?"
Make it happen ...
Hey may not be sexy, but he had a winning record at Minnesota and put Kansas football back on the map. Won the Jug from us for the first time since Holtz, won some big games there. He's an OSU guy who gets the Rivalry, has midwest ties, and isn't Brady Hoke.
I agree, he obviously has some accomplishments on his resume. But if he was that good, he would have a job by now, or be considered for some of the other high priority jobs since he left. I'd rather have Hoke than Mason, and I don't want Hoke either.
That'll really calm the savage fan base...
"We've hired Glen Mason."
Just envisioning a Mason hire is making Brian's servers melt.
Would Glen Mason's Hot Wife be part of the deal?
Have we stooped so low that people are seriously contemplating hiring Minnesota's cast-offs? Why not Brewster? I hear he is a hell of a recruiter and was going to run the spread with Gray at one point
Although he did "rebuild" KU and Mn - once he hit the ceiling he was unable to do anything. His defenses at Minn were terrible. He had a reputation as having terrible relationships with HS coaches - one reason Brewster was able to come in an really upgrade the recruiting was that Mason had set the bar so low. Game day he was also a pretty bad coach in close games - inventing new ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
The guy put together some very good offenses, but no way not even close to this job. Hoke is way preferable.
Stanford is back in the driver's seat. But we're back in it, at least more than we were...
Here's how I'd handicap it now:
5-2 odds Stanford
3-1 odds Michigan
4-1 odds 49ers
20-1 odds Broncos
Or something like that!
John Elway's influence.
I fail to see Elway's influence. I understand he went to Stanford but I really don't see that being an issue with JH. I highly doubt that JH sees Elway as this all time great that he can not say no to. Just my opinion, I never thought the Broncos were any kind of player in the game.
The broncos are paying two other coaches, and so they simply can't afford to pay Harbaugh the appropriate bank to lure him, especially in a potentially locked-out year
I thought I heard somewhere that the two of them don't really get along. We can only hope...
That means there's 3000-1 odds that he'll coach the Lions AND Michigan. Please let it be so!
Don't underestimate the power of the schwartz.
Les miles finishes his bowl game, and eats a bowl of grass w/ ranch dressing. Gets a call from Davey B himself and flys to Ann Arbor on Monday to taste the turf himself.
but both Les Miles and Bo Pelini are tainted. I don't think either of them make the coach with an appropriate public image requirement, so I really hope we don't go there.
Additionally on Pelini, to take a swipe at Nebraska's head coach right as they join the conference would be a jerk move (which I don't see DB doing), and Pelini has turned in some good, but not great seasons - I'd want to see some offensive success. Also, Pelini and Nebraska seem to be having issues - I don't think we want those issues.
I am not wild about Hoke, but I'd rather have Hoke than either of the other two.
Who cares about the jerk move? Pelini is just a plain jerk of a guy. I would hate to see him on our sideline.
Carl Pelini started going after fans and media members on the field after NU lost to A&M. I don't want the Pelini brothers coaching Michigan
Why not? Frankly, our fanbase needs its ass kicked.
i could +1 you
to coddle and nurture our players and calmly discuss the reasoning of the officials on the field, ya jackwagon.
j/k I changed my mind when you brought up his brother. I don't want the Sons of Woody here.
rule out two of the best options. Lame dude. Pelini is fiery, that's how he coaches. Guess what? He gets it done. So does Miles. Can't really argue with that. There's always guys who haven't proven anything though (e.g. Hoke).....they may be "nicer" to everyone. Geez, this is football, not the peace corps.
I think we have learned by now that it is not just how good a coach the candidate is, but how well that coach will be accepted by the fan base. If we bring in Pelini, with the issues he's already having at Nebraska - I would be concerned that he'll be perceived with the same controversy baggage that Rich had.
I believe Les Miles would be pilloried for ethics by the press as well.
multiple bizare stories about his exit from A2, the recruit who claimed Miles told him Carr had Parkinson's, the incredibly bizarre roster/scholarship antics that would have gotten RR shot, the whole "Mad Hatter" shtick.....
I'm just happy that mgoboard is functioning like haloscan at this point.
