"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Score was flipped the whole game on MGoBlue.com. Scared the heck out of me. I feel much better now.

The difference between the two universities, personified.

Your team rots from within rapidly if playing time is awarded rather than earned based upon hard work and results. Period.
JH knows this and as a result, hard work and fair competition are the hallmarks of his program.
If the kid earned it, he should play. It is that simple. If somebody older wants the job, they should outwork and outperform him.
Finally, we need to trust JH and is staff that playing Newsome is the right call. We do not have access to the practice tape and all of the other inputs that the coaches have access to. JH deserves this respect. Hoke lost that right after the bad decisions he and his staff made stacked higher than a tower of turtles.

I am going to go ahead and assume that JH knows what will resonate with each kid he is recruiting.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Bargain||
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.
|12 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?
|12 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)
|13 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?
|13 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.
|13 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.
|13 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.
|13 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.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Absolutely||
You have hit the nail right on the head.
|13 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.
|13 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.
|14 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.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Denard and Devin||
Denard and Devin are always welcome! Pain is french bread.
|14 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!
|14 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!
|15 weeks 11 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!
|15 weeks 11 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.
|15 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.
