me look like an idiot so quickly! I appreciate the quick enbed.
Football can't get here quick enough.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||I immediately went to||
the videos after the OSU victories. I can't wait until we have more in the near future. Bo is/was a legend and I can't wait to see what he has instilled in our new leader as a head coach.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||After the last 8 years||
I wouldn't want it any different. We have our coach and we all know he is going to do great things here. He gets his first opportunity on the road, against a good opponent, and as an underdog.
I have no idea what this season holds for us, but I have a lot of confidence in HARBAUGH!!

Austin Hatch could have a better father figure in hi life than John Belein. What an unbelievable man with unbelievable character.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||This is my theory||
And it always works. See you guys tomorrow in the way too early 2015 depth chart posts!!
|24 weeks 4 days ago||The fact of the matter is||
Urban Meyer has done things similar to this every year. He is going to handle this the same way he has done it in the years past which is say exactly what the kid wants to hear and break his heart down the road if the kid doesn't pan out by putting him on a medical hardship for a new recruit.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||I hope this means bad things for us||
As much as it meant bad things for UCLA when Chris Clark was announcing at 8:30am EST. I will gladly take how bad that turned out for UCLA.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Good||
They will be Kiffin cursed for another year!!

With a swimsuit was the funniest sign so far.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||As a former athlete||
The whole scared by competition meme is the most ridiculous thought for top athletes which is most of who makes it to the level Michigan is recruiting. I am not saying that these kid's confidence can't take a hit, but just speaking from experience, I highly doubt any of them are scared of competition.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||This is a weird video||
but I always laugh at the clip of no one giving Brady a high five. Gets me everytime.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Dangit!!||
This is Roll Damn Tides fault!!
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Wow!!||
I like this kid's talent.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||I appreciate your insight||
But if Samuel is better than Elliot, Samuel would be playing over Elliot. We all want to believe out backups are awesome, but there is a reason they are a backup to the starters. I am sure Samuel is a fine RB, but he is not better than Ezekiel.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||I believe it to be true||
That taking Weber will not have a huge impact to OSU since they are recruiting at a high level, but the fact of the matter is Meyer still wants him in the class. Otherwise, he would not have extended an offer. I do find it amusing that OSU coming back to glory in Meyer's first year was the norm, but it is going to take multiple years for Harbaugh to bring Michigan back. Most people forget that Brady Hoke was a pretty good recruiter and just as an elite coach in Meyer did with OSU, I expect an elite coach like Harbaugh to have instant success. By no means am I predicting undefeated seasons or a NC in 3 years, but I am predicting a quick turnaround from Harbaugh. It kills OSU fans to believe this!!
|27 weeks 10 hours ago||You know you have someone special||
when people constantly continue to talk about how good/bad the hire was. To say he is taking the easy way out is just idiotic, especially since Harbaugh has proven he can win at both levels.
Please continue to fuel Jim's intensity and desire to win even more.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||I could watch||
Harbaugh brush his teeth and it be entertaining!
|29 weeks 2 days ago||So did he||
Shake his hand???
|29 weeks 2 days ago||This is the 14 year old||
Supposed recruiting guru getting back at us isn't it?
|29 weeks 2 days ago||It is disappointing||
How poor we have finished this year with lay ups or bunny shots.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||It is amazing||
How mediocre our offense has been. Long stretches of 0 FG. It has killed us in every loss. I understand the defense hasn't been good as well. But Belein's teams start with offense and it isn't happening this year.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks for the response!||
These are all very good points, and it probably explains why OSU and MSU are at a point where they can "plu and play" with their teams. Solid coaching and development, great depth, and good recruiting.
I do not believe we are that far behind and the next couple of years will be very interesting to see 1. how Harbaugh develops our current talent and 2. how he recruits and how soon an impact those recruits can make in producing success on the field. I can't stand OSU and Urban Meyer, but they have their guy and now we have our guy. That is what I am going to focus on and what gives me optimism for the future.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know the answer||
But man will it be great when our two biggest rivals start talking about us and our awesome coordinators. If I had to choose, I would say Narduzzi. It is going to be a lot more difficult for Dantonio to pickup a top notch coordinator than it will be for Meyer.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Honest question here||
Why can OSU, Alabama, MSU, and many other teams get solid production out of high talented recruits early on and we can't expect the same ever from Michigan? I believe I know the answer........coaching and development. This is what will be the most telling with the hire of Harbaugh. He will develop the talent we get and I believe we will see young guys begin to make an instant impact that we haven't seen for almost a decade.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||I think instead of watching||
The rest of the Sugar Bowl, I will just replay this the rest of the night.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||From a recruiting standpoint||
I believe this is a very good hire.
I can't wait to see who the other assistants are.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||I love Jim Harbaugh||
And his personality. Thank goodness it was the only one available!!

I am a diehard Michigan fan, can't stand Ohio State fans, and hate Urban Meyer. I have a lot of optimism if Jim Harbaugh becomes our next coach, but we are not even close to being in a position to talk trash to OSU fans. I don't care what has happened with Urban Meyer in the past. Fact of the matter is he has already won a lot of games at OSU and he is 3-0 against us. In my opinion, if JH comes, both teams will have elite coaches who will compete on the field with the best of them which is exactly what I want.

I know this hire isn't nearly as flashy and prestigious as all of the names above, but I give UNLV a lot of credit for hiring who they believe to be one of the best high school football coaches in the nation. He went something like 85-5 in his past 8 years. It will be interesting how it pans out. I think it was only the 5th or 6th time this has happened where a D1 school hired a high school coach.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||What I find interesting||
is how fickle people are when it comes to sports. I remember how everyone thought Alabama fans were rediculous when they were so giddy about getting Nick Saban and virtually everyone was bashing Nick Saban and how he left the NFL after a short stint. Now they are calling him one of the greatest coaches ever in NCAA football and their fans are very loyal. The same somewhat goes with Bobby Petrino when he left the Falcons and went to Arkansas. Maybe it is the NFL and people with loyalties to the NFL don't like coaches leaving the NFL to go (back) to college. Every fan base has a minority of moron fans, but calling a fan base losers "Biggest Losers in America" helps me realize how poor this writer is.
