The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

Count me among the minority. I'd rather pack my rectum full of M80's and squat over a flaming Hibachi than listen to even one minute of V & F.

I've seen Lloyd spelled many different ways on this site -- 'Lyyod,' 'Llyod,' etc. -- but I've never seen 'Llody.' Props to you for coming up with a new one!

I don't know that Lloyd's classes at the end were garbage as much as he started having trouble retaining the players he had recruited. Generally, "The Rule of Thirds" is applied to recruiting classes when it comes to retention. Carr's washout rate over the last four years of his tenure was 47%, as compared to 35% over his first nine years at U-M.
The trend of attrition problems that began under Carr worsened during the Rodriguez era. During RR's three year tenure, 62% of all U-M recruits left prior to playing out their eligibility.
Unfortunately, it did not get any better under Hoke, at least not during his first year. 65% of Hoke's first recruiting class departed before their eligibility had expired, some of whom would still be eligible to play today.
All told, 59% of all players recruited by U-M during the years 2004-2011 left prior to playing out their eligibility. With numbers like that, it's not hard to see why the Wolverines are in the midst of a decade long slide.
Obviously players leave for many different reasons, some of which are outside the control of the head coach. Departures are part of the game. One can conclude, however, that based on U-M's abnormally high washout rate from '07-'11, Michigan coaches -- starting with Carr -- did a very poor job of vetting their recruits, a problem the team is still trying to recover from to this day.
