Harbaugh is a bargain at twice the price. As a matter of fact, JH could have gotten much more than his current salary. As he himself said, he is not on the same dance floor as Mother Teresa, but he is not greedy either. Bottom line, beware of chancellors in general. Blank, Palpatine, etc.

Look in the mirror, chancellor.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Give 'Em a Chance||
How about we give them a chance to play a game before demanding results on the field?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Relaxed||
Coach Harbaugh seems more relaxed and jovial than I have seen him since he has been here. I wonder if that alludes to some quiet confidence about the season? Or just wishful thinking on my part.

Jeep Wrangler - Any model year
Dodge Challenger Scat Pack - 2016MY (I do not trust myself with the Hellcat)
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Not a Jeep||
That vehicle is not fit to be in the same parking lot as a Jeep. A cheap knock-off, nothing more.

How am I supposed to sleep tonight knowing that Schiano was almost our HC, and not Jim Harbaugh?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Label||
You seem to have the need to label everything. And yet you cannot understand the simple concept of an important way of describing somebody who embodies everything that the university stands for.
In this world, there is objective right and wrong. In the same way, titles mean things. Because they are misinterpreted by some, does not mean they should be abolished or take on a new meaning.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||One True Meaning||
There is only one, true meaning. It has stood since Yost, and will never change. This is true regardless of any incorrect usage, or attempt to slander the term.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Agree||
I would also add somebody who competes every day to be the best, and is considered to be at the top of his field. In addition, somebody who plays by the rules at all times, even to the point of personal sacrifice.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||1000 Times, Wrong||
The term is not at all empty. In fact, the exact opposite. Just because certain people do not know what it means or how to use it correctly, does not mean that it is empty.
This term is at the core of what makes Michigan great. We should have the discussion about the true meaning, rather than trying to disparage the title.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Absolutely||
You have hit the nail right on the head.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||No Ban||
In my opinion, we should not work to ban or disparage the Michigan Man label. It is too important. However, I do agree that we really need to be very sure that we completely understand what it means before we use it improperly.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Harbaugh Practice!||
Remember, this is a Harbaugh practice. I have to think it would be more intense and competitive than even watching a Hoke or Carr spring game. I think I would be able to stay interested.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan Men||
They are great Men of Michigan. They gave their heart to their teams and perservered despite many disadvantages outside of their own control. Your statement above is very sad indeed.

Denard and Devin are always welcome! Pain is french bread.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Four Seasons||
In the next four seasons, they play the Boilers once on the road in 2017.

Probably helped paint them too.

Drinking water and watching Up with the kids. It does not get any better than this!
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Harbaugh Knows||
Harbaugh knows how much to hit and when to back off. If he decides to execute a Crazy Ivan, then so be it. In Harbaugh, we trust!

I hope you bolted this set down. Post a picture. Maybe WD will want to buy a set.

Go, go bananas!
|8 weeks 10 hours ago||Cool||
I like it for a year. Leave the home uni alone. A clean alternate and pure throwback. Very nicely done. Pays homage to the dominant early Bo years - a level of performance to which we must return. Harbaugh just gets it - pure and simple. Excellent work out of him!
|8 weeks 10 hours ago||OK, Tkriz||
OK, Tkriz, we'll collectively get off of your lawn. It's not like you have Michigan decorative rocks on it or anything.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Confusion||
Most of the national, uninformed media is a little confused about the situation at Michigan. They see Harbaugh coming in and the failed past with Hoke and believe that this is a total rebuild. However, we all know here that there is a plethora of talent on this roster. Harbaugh and his excellent staff will really surprise these people. 10-3 with a bowl victory. The defense will be excellent, the offense will be functional, special teams will no longer be a severe liability, and a very motivated and intense team will be taking out a lot of past frustrations on this years' opponents.
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||Fair Enough||
I think Indiana is the best chance to win on the road. I did say one loss from PSU, Minny, and Maryland. PSU would probably most difficult game of the three. MSU will be a much different type of game. The idea of rivalry will be reestablished in my opinion.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||8 Years||
8 years of misery have been paid for this. The man in Bo's chair that this program, and this fanbase truly deserve.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||10-3||
I think 9-3 with a bowl win to make it 10-3 overall. One non-conference loss, one loss from PSU, Minny, or Maryland, and loss to OSU. There is experienced talent on this team, especially on both lines. We have not seen that in some time. Turnovers and special teams will also provide a shot in the arm. Competent coaching can make a huge difference in football; and we now have that and then some. This is not a re-build like our previous two attempts. I will say, however, we would be closer to 9-4 than 11-2.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Unbundling||
Wonder if the looming Great Unbundling could cause the big conferences to embark on another feeding frenzy to ensure revenue remains unchanged? Will be interesting to watch, if not disruptive to the results on the field.
