"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."

Lots of coaches talk the talk when it comes to "family values" with their teams. Most of them are BSing. Hoke and this staff aren't. They authentically care for their guys and getting them to be the best they can be.
Some guys think they play for a staff that cares for them because their coach lies to the NCAA for them (they think), or reinstates them when they get out of the slammer. But deep down they know those same coaches could give a shit about them personally.
I think Harbaugh is authentic too. But given the alternatives last January, I think we knocked it out of the park with these guys.

Brian skirted the issue of the assistants. Shafer was bequeathed the same guys Robinson was, both with similar results. Obviously there are talent issues here too. But don't you think RR ought to let his DC's actually put their own guys and then either succeed or fail becuase of their own actions? The current "take these coaches" arrangement is not working.
