At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

My lasting memory of Rawls, unfortunately, is him getting lit up by Sunseri against Bama. Yikes.

Like Ace said, the batting passes thing really shouldn't be overlooked, that's a really valuable skill that isn't the most teachable thing in the world.
At worst this guy looks like a solid special teams contributor.

I picture Harbaugh coordinating every aspect of the video. Picking out the voice talent, digging through the film archives and making final editorial decisions.

I'm glad you put this qualifying statement in here. Overall, I think your take is solid. The biggest concern I have with speculation like this is it can be used as a foundation for labeling players in the future.
Maybe it's unavoidable but I'm not really looking forward to the impending comments during the season of certain players being "damaged goods" if they are preceived to be underperforming or not catching on with the new regime/system.

I love Craig Ross..."Hour of the wolf news." I am going to use that at every available opportunity in the future.

Agreed. I know that a lot of player information from the Michigan Camp is shared with smaller schools. I would imagine this is the spirit of most HS camps.
These satellite camps shouldn't be any different. They are bound to unearth kids who aren't good enough to play at Michigan but are good fits elsewhere in the region.

I think the only thing that could have made this better is if he posted his personal email address as the contact instead of the exposureU address.

In a similar vein, back in the day, Jim Herrmann recommended the book "Competitive Leadership: Twelve Principles for Success" By Brian Billick. Apparently this was Lloyd Carr required reading or something.
I remember liking it but it's been at least 10 years since I've read it.

To Ace's point about user's never having watched Dunaway play...putting personal attacks aside (ridiculous)...
I get the impression that there are a lot of people that just look at ratings and don't take the time to go to games or watch highlights on Youtube or Hudl. I just don't know how you can even begin to make a semi informed comment on a recruit without doing that minimal amount of work?

Yeah, it kind of seemed like running good routes and blocking were overrated as well.

Why would they talk about that, when they could discuss his age and the fact that he is a Harbaugh?

|18 weeks 3 days ago||His attitude towards injuries||
His attitude towards injuries hardened more and more over time. There seems to be something beyond coaches stubbornness going on with this. I don't know if it was Brandon mandated or feeling like someone in the media had burned him?
I support the idea of coaches not sharing detailed injury information and not wanting to make excuses based off of injury. To not even acknowledge any injury information beyond someone having a season ending injury just felt more and more petty the deeper they got into last season, given how it was going.

I'm rooting for all of these guys but I would love to see Morris be able to redeem himself a little bit. Last year had to be a rough one for him and I think it would be cool to see him win the job and come out and play well.

I agree. I live in the Twin Cities and the designation of "Best Burger" is as prestigous as it is fleeting. I have been to a lot of the "Best Burger" places here and they are all pretty damn good.

Nice work. I was trying to think of a way of using that reference.

Hopefully the department/Harbaugh have a somewhat looser policy regarding injuries. The injury policy was kind of crazy last year.
NO information unless someone was done for the year. I don't gamble so I don't have any tangible use for that information but I do follow the team closely enough that it's nice to know whether or not someone is or is not injured.
I'm actually for limited injury information being shared but give us something! His answer on Houma was totally acceptable to me. Injured. Back in fall.

I really hope JUB's book addresses some of this press conference stuff with Hoke.
I think Hoke's goal (or Brandon's goal) was to make his press conferences as much of a non event as possible. It seemed like over Hoke's tenure, They tried to make his press conferences less and less eventful, which obviously backfired.
How much of that was just Hoke? How much of that was Brandon directing Hoke?

The depth chart question is hilarious to me. Was that an honest question? Do you have a depth chart right after your very first practice ever coaching at the school?

I believe someone said in a previous recruiting thread, that he doesn't want to stay in the midwest.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||Totally agree. Although with||
Totally agree. Although with Hoke, his press conference deameanor changed over time a bit. To the point where he would hardly share anything of any substance this past year. The complete shutdown of all injury information. I can't help that some of that was driven by Brandon with how much of a clustefuck the season was up until Brandon's "resignation".
