I don't know how good their information is, but his participation will ensure Brandon and Harbaugh will speak directly.
FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
TCU accepted the Big East's invite!!!!!
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU has accepted a bid for full membership to become the 17th member of the Big East Conference, effective July 1, 2012.
Maybe it hit the board earlier and I didn't see it, but it's not really old news because it was being reported that he wouldn't be there.
Al Gore invented the internet, Jim Tressel is cool and that the world will end in 2012
Well then they went 1 for 3. I'll let you figure out which one they were right on.
Well, I might as well cash in my 5 year CD, I guess.
I don't know how good their information is
From what I know about that show, probably pretty shitty. Although maybe they know something that we don't. Probably not.
In other words, they're lazy and stupid as usual.
I think they're just misinformed.
FWIW, they both said that RR has done enough to be kept around for at least another season.
I thought I heard Wilbon say that they should fire RR and bring in Harbaugh?
Dan Patrick, on his radio show also said that Harbaugh was coming to the banquet. But I doubt they have the facts straight.
It's not like Brandon can't call Harbaugh if he wants to speak with him.
That's not how coaching changes work. It's all about meeting in dark alleys or undisclosed locations and communicating only in hand signals, head nods or a near dead dialect of coach speak. "No" means "yes", "yes" means "no" and "maybe" means "set the place on fire and run."
Trust me, I learned all about it from Les Miles.
Edit: Thank you Hail 2 Victors
it would be an opportunity for Harbaugh to directly address the current team and players. It should help with attrition should Harbaugh be the next coach.
It also gives Harbaugh an opportunity to directly talk about his feelings for Michigan Football and the University of Michigan in general.
lol i doubt it would help with attrition.. A lot of players specifically went there to play for RR, not just to go to michigan
But since Brandon has made it clear that RR is the coach for the bowl (if not beyond), how exactly would Harbaugh address the team? Think RR would be okay with that?
I hope he doesn't come to the Bust. I don't want it to turn into a circus. The Bust is, above all, about honoring the graduating seniors from the 2010 team - guys who won't play for Harbaugh in any event.
So what, in the middle of the bust, Harbaugh is going to walk up to the current players and start addressing them. Would his address start out with:
"Hi, my name is Jim Harbaugh. You may remember me from such great moments in Michigan history as the 1985 OSU game. While DB has not addressed the topic publicly, let me give you guys some inside info - RR is gone. Canned. Fired. What's his deal anyway? Since I will be announced as your HC on January 2, let's take some time to get to know one another . . ."
As for talking about his "feeling for Michigan Football," again, do you just expect him to run up on stage, gram the mic and profess his love. I am imagining RR getting up to address the crowd when JH stands up, bumps RR aside and grabs the mic Kanye West style and says: "Look, I just want everyone here to know that I love Michigan football. I do. I still know the fight song by heart. Don't believe me? Well here it is. (JH proceeds to sing the entire fight song perfectly in tune). I want to be your coach. I bleed blue and I piss maize - no, really, I piss maize.
This just makes no sense. If JH wants to campaign for the job, I imagine that as a former FB great, he can get in touch with DB pretty easily in private.
Now THERE was a
head football coach actor spokesman.
If he stands up in the middle of the bust and starts "addressing" the team, I DEFINITELY want him as our coach. That'd be ballsy, man.

I still don't understand why people like that show so much. It's not even really a debate show. They usually agree with each other, but just try to yell and talk over each other. Though I have to admit, there's nothing better on TV at that time so when I'm faking a sick day, I watch it too.
What is up with all this PTI hate?
arrogant, hateful pricks who talk shit and get it all wrong much of the time. Just that.
I'm an arrogant, hateful prick that frequently talks shit and you, sir, are discriminating against my people. What do you have against my people?
i don't mind WIlbon, but K-Heiser is a total douche. He never has anything positive to say about anything.
Harbaugh flies private (http://www.cbssports.com/columns/story/12125965
Should be even easier, then. Look for aircraft registered to Stanford U.
My Dad breathlessly called me here in my office to tell me what they said. If they got it wrong, that's weak journalism by two fairly well-respected journalists. Just sayin'.
Now that Wilbon is about to officially no longer work at the Post, neither of them are journalists. They are commentators and their purpose is to sensationalize...which I might add they do a generally fantastic job at (I guess ESPN pays better than the WaPo).
on the Pac-10 conference call:
Just curious (and didn't want to start a thread to ask), but has Harbaugh been getting bombarded with questions about the Michigan speculation at press conferences and other media events? I haven't seen anything here, and was curious. Remember last year when Kelly was the front runner for the ND job, even before Big Charlie was fired, Kelly was being repeatedly asked about his interest in the ND job, forcing a series of "right now, I am just focussed on preparing my team to play . . ." responses.
His standard reply is "I don't talk about any other job than my own." He does so again in the piece I linked to above.
Well, since Jimmy's 11-1 Stanford team drew all of 38,000 for their last game against Oregon State, it might be the case that people out there just don't care enough about football to ask him.
Stanford, so lame, sooooo lame, oh man, sooooooo lame. Regardless of how this shakes out, Stanford does not deserve Jim Harbaugh. They deserve to perpetually be the Indiana of the Pac-10, with their soulless, country-club of a campus, rinky-dink stadium, and their student body of nerdy nebbishes.
Anyone else get the giggles when they read the words "Football Bust"?
Can't say I do.
Communist Football for setting the record straight by quoting the Pac 10 Conference Call. Sorry to the board for the unnecessary drama.
that Nick Saban wouldn't have had any better results had he coached the defense.
Did anybody catch Desmond throw the pimphand on Herbie Saturday on Gameday? Herbie was asked his view and proceeded to say that .......... and before he finished Desmond reminded him of what had happened 3 years ago when "people" guessed on what was going to happen. I loved it!
