Come on down, Mr. Patterson.
Come on down, Mr. Patterson.
Who's going to step up??
Press conference this afternoon... on to next candidate...
it's a post. There is no link, no opinion, no nothing. At least give us a few sentences about the topic. I know it's news, but you need to put some thought into starting a new thread on this site. Ya dig?
And if I didn't have to use my iphone to start a thread, believe me I would. You work with what you've got available to you...
I guess I missed the "posted from iphone" part on the topic...
good luck with your next level of challenges. Once in a lifetime opportunity has been lost for you and the rest of us.
Seriously. DB. Go call Patterson. Now.
Not that I don't desparately want JH. But, enough of the drama. He is a great coach. There are other very good coaches out there who will not bolt for the NFL in 3-5 years.
Personally (I know that Brian will puke), I am pulling for Hoke. He wants the job above all others. It would be his dream job. To me, that counts for a lot, as his love of Michigan might prove infectious.
Hoke is not my favorite at all, but honestly, I would be OK with him just for the reason you stated. That much desire for the job would go a long way in movitating the players and the fan base.
If nothing else, this gives DB the ammunition to say "look, we tried*, he went somewhere else, we have to focus our efforts on finding the next great coach of Michigan who isn't JH." He also prepared us for this at the press conference.
It's all good - I hope we can help Patterson across that bridge he was talking about.
*assuming he tried
The goddamn plane has crashed into the mountain. We're not so good at hiring coaches, or so it appears.
Are you fucking crazy? The guy in seat 17, row 68 probably wants the job pretty badly, too. He's a fat fucking slob that never went to Michigan and was only able to score season tickets because of the defection of the blue hairs during the RR era, but, hey, his love of Michigan might prove infectious. Why don't we hire him? Who gives a shit about his ability to recruit or his ability to coach? He L-O-V-E-S Michigan! I once saw him swear off beer for a whole year on the condition that Michigan come from behind and beat Wisconsin in the 500th game at the Big House in 2008. And guess what? Michigan came back and won! I mean, is this guy perfect or what? He could just swear off different things each game (hot dogs, internet porn, corn dogs, pay-per-view porn, etc.) and Michigan would never lose!
Stay Classy MGO!!
. . . and I like it.
While we're in the blame game, I say let's kill the messenger. Schefter is a tool.
I am a loudmouth.... but I wasn't clamoring for JH.
I don't blame him for not landing JH, I blame him for having to wait until Jan. 7th to hear that news.
ANy more of these and i'm fixin to donkey punch someone
I figured it out. Harbaugh is really Santa Claus.
No wonder I didn't get that copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops that I asked for! Son of a B-tch!
And the press conference seals it. Dammit. Despite everything I still had some hope, but clearly should have just given up on Tuesday.
I will root for him, but I don't ever want to hear his name come up again should we need a head coach.
Why root for him now? He's clearly proven he was all about his own glory rather than becoming part of something greater than himself. I was rooting for him but he turned me against him in about 36 hours. There are tons of crap NFL jobs that come open every year. Michigan is probably (hopefully) a once in a lifetime opportunity for him, and he turned us down and embarrassed us in the process. If it was about his wife hating cold weather...I guess I could sympathize with that. It's probably for the best, since he would've dragged us through this every year or two until he fulfilled his NFL dream.
When Jim harbaugh is fired in three years because the 'niners still suck, then we'll all have our revenge!
(Except it is looking more and more like we're still going to be hurting three years from now as well ...)
He is dead to me.
John Harbaugh. GO CHEFS (great googly moogly)!
the John Harbaugh rumors were agent-driven for more cash.
hes only getting 5mil / yr. thats what really pisses me off about this
Which we (or probably Stanford could have paid). So he obviously just wants to be in the NFL. Which is almost better than being spurned for another NCAA program.
Cook those birds!
I don't know, the BELLHOPS are offering some tough competition to those CHEFS...
Damn. I sort of knew this was coming, but I still had hope.
That's just wrong...DAMN. LOL! Hysterical!
Shouldn't that be Kirk Ferentz?
At least it's over and the fanbase can move on to someone else.
Let's move on.
At least he didn't go back to Stanford - then he'd really be a jerk.
So much for bleeding Maize and Blue. He bleeds flaming san fran colors. Good luck with TRoy Smith as your QB. Thanks for the help.
Eh, better there than stanford. Prestige would have taken a bit of a hit if one of our "loyal" alums had elected to stay at an institution that can't fill a 50,000 seat stadium instead of coming back to his "dream" job. Don't think he is going to be a very good pro coach (his style is one that players tune out rather quickly - see Singeltary, MIchael) but w/e.
it was not about the money. It was about the location. Wife made the decision for him.
