I think that would mean he would be coming from massive failure at some point. It would also mean that Hoke had failed. I really don't see it happening.
Jim Harbaugh: "Go Blue!"
Hoke could retire after a long career here, and Harbaugh might miss the college game. Unlikely but possible.
I would be happy about it, don't get me wrong. I love Jim and his entire family.
Jim won't be back. He wants to compete on the highest level with his brother. Only way he comes back to college is if he fails miserably, and gets fired, but if that'd happen, i'm sure other NFL teams would hire him before he came back to college
And I think you point out a potential problem with Harbaugh coming - we would always have worried about him leaving for the pros...
That's not what I am implying at all. I said in the post, way down the road.
I know this is where Brady Hoke will retire. And when he does (hopefully YEARS and years down the road), I think JH will be next in line.
I love the way things are going, but something just tells me that we will see Harbaugh back in Ann Arbor someday.
I don't see it. They're only a few years apart in age. I expect Hoke to coach around 10 more years here and by that time, someone younger will have emerged as the logical replacement.
As to whether Harbaugh might eventually come back to coach Michigan, I'm curious whether anyone thinks it's possible that he would coach Ohio State. The reason I wonder is that he seems to relish a bit in being an ass. See, e. g. the post-Lions/San Fran handshake incident and non-apology, and his occasional negative comments about Michigan. Does anyone think he would coach OSU, in part to be the biggest, most successful coach/ass in the country? It would be a shocking move, but that might appeal to him.
Eisen also got a GO BLUE out of Les Miles yesterday.
Got face time on the Jumbotron with his family. And, for all the ambivalence he raises (like Harbaugh, but for different reasons), his not wearing any team-related regalia made me think he was there to watch the Tigers. (Yes, pure speculation.)
is a Michigan player who I respect for what he accomplished as a player but I do not like him as a representative of the university. Most recent example I can think of is Mario, who I cannot stand in the slightest.
Y U NO DRAFT MOLK?
A center from W. Oregon?
Harbaugh's comments regarding Michigan steering him away from a History degree offset all that he did as a Wolverine. I think he's earned the right to decide how and when he represents his alma mater. It's great to hear him say, "Go Blue!"
So, Go Blue!
Go back to EL, victoryforMSU and pick up some of the plastic bags blowing around your stadium
People still mad about his comments... shame
HEEEEEEEEYLLL NO!!! Ain't no soul in the WORLD that fuckin' ungrateful!
Rich Eisen was in my fraternity at Michigan, so it was probably just a friendly salutation. Wouldn't read a boatload into it.
I agree 100%. I'll even add he doesn't make these comments if Bo were still alive. That might even upset me more. In the 20 years or so between him attending and Bo passing, he had ample opprotunity to make his point and didn't.
EDIT: Oops. Sorry. This was supposed to be in response to orobs comment.
How many times during those years was he the coach of a program competing with Michigan for recruits?
