Raiders are a big wild card.
What does Harbaugh think of their rookie QB?
What if they offer him the coach and GM job?
What if their LA relocation rumors pick up?
How interested in an NFL rebuilding job is he?
Is there any truth to the rumors about his wife's intention to stay in the bay area?
Lots of questions, man. Idunno.

What do you want, a detailed accounting of how much time he spent recruiting? The article did explain the process:
The plan was simple: Jim owned a home in Orlando, the heart of one of the most talent-rich recruiting areas in the country. So he became an NCAA-certified volunteer assistant coach for WKU, which allowed him to recruit. John, meanwhile, leaned on the scouting services, deep contacts and endless high school game footage they had at Cincinnati, which as a Division I-A school had a far larger budget than Division I-AA Western Kentucky.
After NFL seasons, John would supply a list of potential hidden gems along the Interstate-4 corridor in Central Florida that, while not right for Cincinnati, could be great for WKU. Jim would pay them a visit and use his stature as an active NFL star to talk up a little known school in Bowling Green, Ky.
"John gave Jim a list of names in Florida and Jim came out and recruited us, school by school," Taggart said.
Jim later expanded his recruiting turf to Indiana, where he played for the Colts, was popularly known as "Captain Comeback" and had his own TV show. Back in 1996 he told reporters about winning NFL games on Sunday and touching base with Indianapolis high schools as a college recruiter on Monday.
"I called the coach at Warren Central [High School] last year after we beat Miami,'' Harbaugh said at the time. "I introduced myself and asked if he had any prospects. There was quiet for a moment, and then the coach said, 'Yeah, and I'm Mike Ditka.' "
You can choose to give the guy the benefit of the doubt, especially given the information from the article, or you can choose, as you seem, to be skeptical about his recruiting contributions.
When I think of what I would do to help out my dad if he were in a similar situation, the story does not seem that far fetched at all.
Maybe we'll have to agree to disagree...and that's okay.

I really did not want to neg, but I kept reading. The more I read, the dumber and more far-fetched the idea sounded.
Which Harbaugh could you see taking a back seat to the other? Neither of those options is gonna happen.

According to this article, he did a pretty fair amount of recruiting for a starting NFL QB.
In 2002, the program peaked with the Hilltoppers winning the Division I-AA national championship. Jim was credited with signing 17 of the players on that team. Not bad for a volunteer.

Fair enough. I ditto-ed Mark Stoops earlier which does not come close to a no name guy.
However, I'm not prepared with a no-name candidate right now. I'll just jump on your Coastal Carolina guy's bandwagon.

Right? I'm surprised he didn't go with Nick Saban as his last resort.

I'm not sure we'd have to dig much deeper than Mark Stoops either. That may not be a bad thing either. Given the talent and resources, he could be a heck of a find. By all accounts, he seems to be one hell of a recruiter and defensive coach.
As far as his contract extension, it's been mentioned on here several times that he does not have a buy-out in his contract. I haven't looked it up to verify it, so take it FWIW.

What did he say about Afghanistan? Might want to double-check that. You may indeed have replied to the wrong comment.

Those LPD's were so much cooler than the LST's. Having those LCAC's and LCU's on there were so much better than the AAV's we would carry.

I'd say there's a Marine in here that needs to get a grip on his or her sense of humor.

When you take the man's money, you play by the man's rules. As the TV contracts have gotten bigger, I believe schools lost a lot of input into game times.

Large - Slow - Target indeed. When we got underway, that flat bottom boat used to make a lot of Marines sick. Between trays flying and Marines puking, there was a lot of entertainment on the mess decks, for sure.

Historically though, the Bears typically aren't known for "shelling out the dough" for big time coaches.
Spot on. I think that's how they ended up with Trestman in the first place.
Dough might not be the only consideration for Harbaugh, but if Michigan offers $6M to $7M, why would he opt for that tire fire of a franchise in Chicago. They've got a couple of really good WR's, but Cutler is a head case at QB. Their RB isn't getting any younger and their defense is a mess. There's not much help in sight here.
I could see him going to Atlanta before going to the Bears.

You can think of a few other guys? The list of guys I'd rather coach is as long as my johnson. Okay, it's that long...if I'm using like a 4 font. But there's a lot of other guys I'd rather be the head coach at Michigan before Shanahan.

How's this for positivity? Imagine MSU squeaking past OSU and getting jumped in the playoff standings by Arizona State?
This would be me, in my living room, if that happened:
