that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

There is a great deal of information on his website that football fans would enjoy reading. The guy knows his stuff and I have in fact added some of the offensive/defensive concepts I have seen and read about on his site to my "playbook" for my team.

I'm a Redskins fan and I can't tell you how dysfunctional the organization is... They have the worst facilities in the NFL, the owner drives the coaches crazy, they always sign old and washed up veterans in free agency (and they flop the very next year) and pay them way more than they're worth.

Congrats to the team. I wish UM would move up to UCA and compete with higher caliber schools. This would be more meaningful. UCA is the best competition in college cheer.

Is there any hope that Jimmy can flip Hayes to the hometown team?

With that thinking, wouldn't the upgrade in the defensive staff put the D over that hump and into that "beastly" level?

I see that a lot of people are concerned about the offense, but you have to understand that this defense may actually be pretty stacked. The amount of talent in the front 7 is plentiful to say the least. The secondary was also very impressive in their man converage today as well. This makes it very hard for the offense to hit their timing routes. That's why you started to see three step drops and quick fades/slants later on in the pass game. Had to start working the man beating concepts.
The offense being split down the middle talent-wise is very devestating to production, especially in the run game. Offense has to have a chemistry that comes from working together over a long period of time. Defense, since it is very reaction-oriented, can work well with just plugging and playing kids in spots without having to work together over a long time. Over the course of fall camp. The offense will be working with players that have been on the same lineup over a greater period of time and you will start to see it gel. When you see the offense being run by the first team regularly, you will see the Harbaugh offense be efficient and impose it's will on opposing defenses.
I am not worried about the offense AT ALL. Harbaugh/Drevno/Fisch will get it working by the time we go to Utah. The defense, I feel is a squad to be really excited about. I think they may be a Top 10 Defense in the whole country this year. Depth and talent just about everywhere, even in the secondary with the addition of Lyons and the emergence of Watson. Henry, Hurst and Marshall were a revelation on DL from what I could see. The DL looked very well coached and disruptive today. SACKS!!!! There were actually sacks today!
My way to early prediction is 10-2 ceiling and a 8-4 floor. We will beat either OSU or MSU this year, but not both. If I had to choose I think we beat MSU.
I'm excited about the fall season, which I have not been since we first hired Hoke and thought he was gonna be great (which he did have a great 1st season with the Sugar Bowl). Don't panic, Harbaugh will get this team ready to win.

Useless? Dude, how about using a filter when talking about an O-Lineman who worked his ass off for the UofM for 4 years and was a starter?

It's just a warm-up drill. Coach is about to get some throws in to be able to demonstrate for the kids. He's just warming up the Harbaugh way: with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.

Too bad he can't grad transfer to a school in his conference and play in the same season. Guess we'll have to wait a year to see him play, if he wins the starting gig.

Best player ever? Jerry Rice has to be in that argument, and I think Rice would take it. No one will ever touch what he did at the receiver position. Tom Brady is the best QB ever, no question. But best player ever is Jerry Rice, no doubt in my mind.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||He really only turns his||
He really only turns his shoulders when he bounces outside. Your point is valid that he won't be doing that as much in college, as he is not fast enough to bounce outside like he has done in HS. He is a very balanced runner and he has a burst through the hole. He won't burn anyone and doesn't seem like a homerun threat, but he has some good cuts (I really like his jump cut) that will get him past the front 7 defenders, but he won't be beating any D-I safeties or corners in a foot race. Deveon Smith is a good comparison, but this guy is a lot more elusive and has a little more straight line speed than Deveon.
I think some people think he's faster than he really is. His film is not running in real time. There is a speed up or a slight fast-forward on his recording, making him (and all the other players on the field) look faster. Did anyone else catch that?

I hope it's Burrow. I was watching his highlights and the ball just seems to pop of his hand. He has impressive touch and accuracy on the deep ball, decent foot speed and pocket awareness and can escape the pocket and make big plays happen with his legs.
The selling point for me was when I saw a highlight of him throwing corner route from the far hash to the opposite numbers with perfect touch and accuracy (2:48 mark in his HUDL highlights). That's an NFL level throw, and if you really think about it, it's better than an NFL throw because the hashes are farther apart in high school than they are in the pro's.
My only gripe (and it is probably too nitpicky) is that he could put a little more air on his deep seams and posts to let his receiver get a little more separation from the DB. He tends to put those throws on a rope and those will get picked at the college level by taller/more athletic LBs/Safeties. He will be coached by the best QB coach in the land if he comes here, so I wouldn't stress at all about it.
Go Blue, young man!

It's probably because Mike Hart said he wished Harbaugh "Never went to Michigan" and called him "Not a Michigan Man." They probably do not like each other very much.
