Sounds like a rival fan review of Michigan football 6 months ago.

Well, your first mistake was reading Jason Whitlock. That guy also claimed it wasn't if but when Hoke won the NC for Michigan. That may have been my first concern about Hoke was that Whitlock thought he was great.

So we can't feel confident unless the coach has spent a decade at a single stop? How many "qualified" candidates is that measure going to leave. Good coaches move from less desireable stops to more desireable. I would say between San Diego and Stanford we can safely say he has succeeded on the college level. Clearly there are no guarantees, but it feels as good as we can reasonably expect.
Edited: original sounded douchier than I meant to.

Harbaugh's entire run at Stanford is remarkable. He walked into a program with one win the year before he arrived. Adjusting for the degree of difficulty, I'd call each year at Stanford impressive.
Similar story at San Fran, taking a mess of a team deep into the playoffs in year one. While it's common type of comments, there's plenty of evidence supporting these comments.

Speaking in favor of bewb-free places then launching into a conversation about your flyrod? Hypocrisy I say!
|6 days 6 hours ago||Who is calling plays is||
Who is calling plays is generally overblown in my opinion. It can change in a second if the head coach decides he needs to take over.

I've had a rough week. Show me the healing power of the posbang!

He has great physical tools, and he looks incredibly polished for his age. He would be a great center piece for a recruiting class.

A beautiful oasis of content in the vast desert of the offseason. Spring practice soon.

My recipe to beat sub zero temps: Coffee, scones and a posbang.

Bolivia is just that creepy room MGoBlog's parents tell us we're not allowed. Still part of the blog by my estimation.

I think they were just taken by my overwhelmingly sexy presence. Sorry everyone. My bad.

Huge thank you to Brian for writing this. It perfectly summarizes the relationship between Brandon and his 'customers.' I can only think now that the last time I thought about Jim Hackett was what a great job he did landing Harbaugh two months ago. What a wonderful change of pace.

If there's a time for personality red flags to drop someone, it's probably the year after Johnny Football's rookie season.

Happy that the kid got to make a decision with all the information available to him. I would have loved for him to join the Michigan class, but best of luck to him in Georgia.

There's clearly a body there. The correct answer is nobody. Perhaps the head could have stayed?

I get no long weekend, so I'll get my posbangin' in now.

Ralph Nadir's hair cut is all wrong for this discussion.

I was lucky enough to catch this segment on the drive to work this morning. I highly encourage everyone to give it a listen when they can. Just great.

Maybe underhanded, but a lot more room for doubt on this one. While he left, it is possible he didn't have an offer in hand on signing day. There's no way the OSU coach didn't know he was leaving.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||Media||
I have to play a bit of devil's advocate on the media front. If a reporter is provided a release on an embargoed nature, would it not be unethical to run with it early? Having released information in that way in my professional life, I'd be seriously hesitant to ever work with someone who did that.
If it was rumblings, or something never officially released, then it would be absolute fair game. It all depends on how the information got to them.
