Realistic people having saying that for awhile. No one knows anything for sure yet except maybe the principals.
|23 hours 33 min ago||Cutcliffe was not offered||
you need to stop beleiving any report you see. That being said, I don't like the fact that numbers were leaked, but Brian's explination that it was a regent or donor who might have leaked it seems better than it coming from the AD or Harbaugh's agent.
|1 day 29 min ago||Much like the Harbaugh "news"||
I will treat this as meaningless to MIchigan's chances or bad news for Michigan until there is a press conference announcing his signing.
|1 day 57 min ago||That may be bad news as well||
The best way to show you are serious is to sign the guy. Leaking a number to appease fans makes it seem like they won't get him like the Tigers did with Sherzer albeit after the fact
|1 day 1 hour ago||This is my concern as well||
I don't see how this getting leaked is in any way good for us.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I could have sworn I saw a story about the Hoops||
players looking at film on Ipads and if they have them, then surely the football players do. I like Schecter but that sounds spurious at best. And even if that is true, that is an obsticle easily overcome. The plane might be a bigger issue, but also likely to be overcome if necessary.
|1 day 2 hours ago||That would certainly be odd||
given his comments about academics while at Stanford. And it certainly would not seem to fit with Hackett's comments about athletes. Shockingly, Cowherd does not seem to know what he is talking about.
|1 day 15 hours ago||I had the same concern||
All reports are meaningless or bad IMO because the only thing that matters is the press conference announcing a new coach.
|1 day 15 hours ago||This just makes me all the more pissed at Brandon||
What a no talent ass clown he was.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Jesus||
in other words, people talked to Harbaugh a few weeks ago and he said he was focused on winning games in San Fransisco and he is not thinking about Michigan which they then interpreted as "Jim says he wants to stay in the NFL."
What a joke. Of course he was going to say that in the middle of a playoff race. The rest of it was just made up conjecture
|1 day 18 hours ago||So Rappaport is just a terrible reporter||
why in the world would Michigan offer him this contract if his earlier report was correct that we asked if he was interested and were told no?
This is why I keep saying this all speculation until there is a press conference announcing our new coach.
|1 day 20 hours ago||It always amazed me that many of the Lloyd||
loyalists who hated RR, also seemed to love Tressel. Small sample size and all, but that always seemed to be an odd bundle of contradictions.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Of course||
it is all speculation at this point. I'm not sure Harbaugh even knows where he will go so how could anyone else?
I won't beleive any report until we see Jim wearing a Michigan hat at a press conference announcing the deal to coach Michigan.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Well it was always rumored||
that it was leaked to Herbie by Desmond or someone close to him in order to sabotage the Miles hire. Under that theory, Herbie got bad info that he had every reason to beleive was good. That makes more sense then him just making shiz up for his first breaking news story of his career.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Probably more like Phil||
of Scio Township
|3 days 2 hours ago||Prepare for a ton of wasted Jabronis||
in Urlacher jerseys and a ridiculously long walk in and out of the stadium. Other than that the stadium is pretty nice inside (despite looking goofy on the outside) and the tailgating can be fun if the weather is decent.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Recruit recruit||
|5 days 7 hours ago||He is probably not ready but||
Neither were Manny, D-Mo, Mitch or GR-III.
|5 days 7 hours ago||What an ominous sign for both of our prgorams||
Football has fallen and will only get better if Harbaugh comes. Otherwise I predict doom. Same with hoops. Recruiting on the hard court has lagged and this years results will only sink it further. You just can't win without a constant talent influx and we will never have that in hoops.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Another year of development is not going to make the difference||
Try 2 or 3. This squad just isn't that talented which means they will have to be juniors and seniors to excel.
|5 days 8 hours ago||I wouldn't be so sure about||
Being much better next year. Caris is likely gone no matter what. And without him this team has no athletic creators. Next year could be worse. As could 2016 unless recruiting improves drastically.
|5 days 18 hours ago||This is what Sparty football would look like if||
If their best football players could leave after one or two years. Teams that don't recruit high end talent every year reduce their margin for error and will need upper classmen to compete at the highest level. Michigan has been lucky/unlucky in having their best players so well they stay early but we were not able to replace them with instant impact guys.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Not a tournament team now||
And likely not one come March unfortunately

For Chryst's sake
|1 week 2 days ago||This feels a lot like the 09/10 season||
when all we lost were a couple of walk-on guards and everyone expected us to improve but there was a surprising step back. Of course we learned as the season went on how important those senior walk-ons were and that the young guys still weren't ready.
Same thing here. We of course knew how important Stauskas and McGary were, but GRIII, Morgan and even Horford were hugely important as well.
I thought we were an upper tier team in conference play at the start of the year, but now it looks like we will be closer to .500 in conference play. Hopefully we end up on the good side of .500 and squeak into the tournament, but nothing is guaranteed at this point.
|1 week 2 days ago||I had the exact same thought||
We could really use GRIII right now.
|1 week 2 days ago||Recruiting is the lifeblood of every program||
This is why I was so concerned about the dip in recruiting in 2014 and 2015. 2016 has to produce. No excuses.
|1 week 2 days ago||Do people still think there is no way||
This team ends up on the bubble? Our RPI is officially in the shitter and it's tough to see this team making a huge leap forward in conference play. This season has shades of the 09/10 season all over again
|1 week 2 days ago||They may if they are eliminated this weekend||
from Playoff contention. Who knows?
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't see any reason to issue an ultimatum at this point||
So long as we are sure that we have a legit shot then I have no problem with waiting until shortly after the Niners season is over.
We should know one way or another by Jan 1 2015 which if we can't get Harbaugh still gives us time to hire Plan B and save some of the recruiting class.
