I didn't see this mentioned out in the open and I've been wondering about it for a while: when Dave Brandon decides on a candidate, does he take into account their future aspirations? A longterm coach would be ideal, so it seems to me that we need/want a guy where the Michigan job is a goal and not a stepping stone to the NFL.
I agree, but it would seem we would have to develop our own coach like Bo or Tressel.
Yes, both were accomplished, but neither were hot
Just think how crazy "The Big House" will be next year with damn near 115,000 fans screaming The Victors before we beat the hell out of ND in our first night game. ESPN Gameday there with Des and the boys. JH is comming guys watch, you think he rather have Luck for one more year? When he can have Denard with 115,000 watching? We would be the talk of the entire sport of football. Think what this does to all of our rivalries in the big ten. Think what this does to the new improved divisions with the chance of playing OSU twice. Dont think DB and the President arent thinking of all of this too. DB said he wanted to unite and bring the UM Brand to the top, this happens when JH comes to A2. He is worth a hell of a lot more to us than any other college of pro team. UM as a brand is just as good and in my eyes better than most of these nfl places. DB knows all of this guys, and to let him get away from us for Stanford???? He will have some explaining to do trust me on that.
Hail to the truth
The stage is set, the orchestra booked. All we need now is a conductor.
If the best we can do is the Hoker, Michigan is truly dead.
That would like get me excited and stuff, man.
If you're bored there's 40 of us or so at the liveblog: http://ghostsofferry.blogspot.com/2011/01/lol-harbaugh-liveblog_7480.html
SIAP: Bill Martin and Mike Hart voice opinions on the firing of RR:
RR was fired???????? This is the first I heard of this!!!!! NOOOOOO!!!!
True story. After all this speculation and mindnumbing debate about hypotheticals I feel like getting a job at a hedge fund or bank selling subprime mortgages, credit default swaps, and tranches with a false AAA rating. I can sell anyone a CDS for LIBOR plus fifty right now!
Thank or I am craving a nuclear bomb appearance...I'm going through withdrawl...and I'm drinking.
Damn son it's like 2 AM on a Thursday and you're hitting the bottle? I hope you don't have to get up early tomorrow!
Thirsty Thursday. I guess I am done drinking, but the drinking isn't done with me.
Can't say I blame you after a shit week like this. I can't get my drink on until Saturday night.
from the Bible into that article about Martin.
DB and JH are sitting back sipping drinks laughing at all the eroneous media reports. Every now and then DB's cell phone rings and on the line is Ross telling them to "turn on ESPN, you're going to love this one."
I also think this comes down to Harbaugh not wanting to leave the Bay Area. Much more than money or returning Michigan to glory. He has a young family and a wife who doesn't want to leave California.
was my first introduction to the rich, full cultural life of Pennsylvania.
katty perry is a fucking dimepiece
It may be because I'm just returning from the bar, but I have no clue what this thread is supposed to be about
then he would have bolted for SF already. That job has to be filled this coming year, so if he passes this year, it won't be available next year and if he leaves for the NFL then, he will be leaving the Bay area then.
The other alternative is that he stays at Standford for the next 15 years /ya right
If anyone is interested in the UConn HC or Assistant position here is the link to fill out an application.
The openings will say
Specialist IIA (assistant football coach)
and Specialist IVA (Head Football Coach)
done and done.
Although I am not fully qualified for either of the positions, I have gone ahead and applied anyways. Why?? Because I can, and can now say I have applied for the head/assistant coaching position(s) at UConn, a division 1 collegiate football program
The media is such a joke. All of these rumors about JH for 7-8 million at Miami, and the truth is they don't even have an opening for a head coach. These rumors are actually making me think that it is more likely that JH will be at UM.
SF now seems to be on the back burner. Miami went with their lame duck coach instead of JH after laying over 7 million on the table to him which he obviously did not accept. Elway says he wants a shat at a JH interview. And in all of this, Michigan and DB quietly say nothing as all of this plays out...I still gotta believe it could happen.
Maybe Luck announced his return so that he could transfer to Michigan right after Harbaugh gets announced. He had a change of heart about his school and major, and decided to transfer to the Ross School of Business--the Dolphins meeting with JH under the auspices of hiring him was just a smokescreen so that S Ross, Luck, and the NCAA (in conjunction with Luck's father, Oliver, whose ties to WVU morally compel him to assist Michigan as recompense for humiliating Rich Rod) could have time to hammer out such a tricky relocation. With everything in place, Ross and co. quickly affirmed their commitment to Tony Sparano. Meanwhile, the 49ers plan to hire Brady Hoke soon after Stanford reintroduces Head Coach Ty Willingham as the final domino hits the table.
Vote for Michigan and maybe someone other than Brady Hoke will want it:
So more people vote
jim heacock? (if you're up this late, i'm guessing you're willing to read off-the-wall suggestions.) he was a head coach for years ('88-'95 IIRC) at illinois state, although i can't find records going that far back, and i'm pretty sure we'd be ok if we had OSU's D the past few years. it's also a serious back-to-bo kind of move, and would really reinvigorate the UM-tosu rivalry. thoughts? aspersions?
If he was he would be here already - I've finally gotten to the 12th stage of grief - and you guys should too
I do not believe he has received an official offer from Dave Brandon yet.
What even is an "official offer" and when they hell would one make it? I'd say now would be a good time. What about reports/rumors saying that we supposedly offered JH something in the realm of $5 million+? If we offered him a number, is that not official. I need sleep.
Sources say that Jim Harbaugh is currently the #1 cause of insanity and insomnia among college football fans in the United States.
I've probably slept 20 hours the past 4 nights.
Wow, you're one of the lucky ones. I think I'm in that hallucination stage of sleep deprivation. I swear my Fat Head just winked at me.
Scott Draper fired for leaking RR news? Funny that DB was on The Apprentice because he's the only guy who fires more people than Trump.
fair treatment for a snitch
Snitches get stitches!
Draper, Jamie Morris and RR: snitchin, lyin and losin. Dat mightta worked on Dolla Bill's block but Pimp Hand not havin it.
/poor TPryor attempt
Never gonna happen but.....did you see the clip of the Miami (OH) coach in pregame?! Had me fired up to go out and play! We NEED a coach with that passion and drive!
DANTONIO IS BUSTING OUT THE SNAKE OIL ON OUR RECRUITS NOOO
