I know a couple of folks here listen to Colin Cowherd, so I expected to see this as a thread. In his final 15 minutes, he discussed the tension between the 49ers and Jim Harbaugh, and how JH could choose to leave at the end of the season. That combined with a season similar to last years (which I don't think will happen....of course i didn't think last year would happen either) then Hoke could be replaced. I love Brady Hoke, as a person, a coach, and a representative of the school. I have met him, talked to him on the phone (yes I was giggling the entire time), and heard his recruiting pitch. I would settle for Lloyd Carr numbers for 15 years as long as he is at the helm. However...I think it is unanimous that Jim Harbaugh is an upgrade. Personally, I would have mixed emotions about him as a coach. It's hard for me to picture anyone else being a better guy for Michigan, than Brady Hoke.
