The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

I'm sorry, but if we go 7-6, JH hasn't done a "very good job," he's done an ok job... and even that's being generous!

Are you high?!? Here's a direct quote from Hoke in the OP'S linked article:
"We won the Sugar Bowl (in 2011 and went 11-2) and had 15 fifth year seniors so we had guys who played a lot of football and we had Denard Robinson, maybe one of the most dynamic quarterbacks to play at the University of Michigan when you look statistically."

I would argue that he had the September Heisman wrapped up after the Notre Dame Game in 2013... heaps of praise on his poise in the pocket and improved passing skills during that game

Technically, there is a countdown to kickoff on their Facebook page (link). It's not as cool as the videos from the past, but still fun to see who's chosen each day :-)
|3 weeks 1 day ago||So what? Overall records||
So what? Overall records don't tell the whole story. Harbaugh was barely above .500 at Stanford and he's respected. In face, Hoke had a better record at UM than Harbaugh had at Stanford (.607 vs .580) over almost the same amount of games (51 games for Hoke vs 50 games for Harbaugh). Of course, they were trending in opposite directions, but that just proves my point about overall records used as a metric for comparing coaches. Hoke has a solid record of improving programs at the MAC level. He'll coach again, and he'll do just fine.

I don't know about irony... they've had a hell of a run with Dantonio and probably deserve the benefit of the doubt until they prove otherwise...

"We just seemed to play "flat" in almost every game. Only a few players seemed to have that kind of inspiration/motivation--particularly last year. Devin Gardner comes to mind."
I read that as Devin Gardner being an example of one of the few players that WAS motivated...

It's a lot more than just common sense or "getting it," though. He not only knew WHAT to do, but HOW to pull it off. A lot of us would have made Harbaugh our number one target as AD... Hackett had the ability to get him. Many of us would have wanted Nike... Hackett negotiated the biggest apparel and merchandising contract in history. Yes, one of his best traits is listening to the voice of the Michigan family, but he's also a shrewd businessman.

I love our classic home uniform... just never been a fan of the white away jersey, so I definitely wouldn't want to see us go all white. If we're going to try something different, I'd rather see all maize since it would match our helmet and be unique within our conference, unlike all white, which is currently unique to Penn St.
