Nothin' to do but put some hate for artists out there?
How about I put some hate out for this thread:
Worst Living Thread.

What would a post-vote tantrum accomplish, other than making a bunch of fan boys who like tough talk happy?
So he didn't throw one. Smart man.

Don't forget that one advantage that Harbaugh had his first year over RR and Hoke was solid recruiting from the predecessor to get players suited to a similar style of play.
RR certainly didn't have that, and Hoke had Denard and others at their peak in his first year that made his 11-win season happen.
I agree that Hoke wasn't up to the task of coaching at this level. But I'm pretty sure that RR wasn't satisfied with his team's losses.

The more research and data they can make sense out of, the better. Seems like a good, non-invasive, step in the right direction.

With respect, wasn't the Athletc Department already having to fudge the attendance stats for certain games in the recent past to keep that 100K+ streak going?
Yes, with Harbaugh it's easier to fill up the stadium, but seems to me that there should be a useful purpose beyond adding crowd noise to spend a few hundred million bucks, and add to game-day issues. There should perhaps at least be demonstrably higher demand for tickets?
There may be a practical limit to the numbers of fans who'll turn out for games. Whether Michigan/Northern Ohio's population within driving distance will support a bigger stadium with regular turnout above the numbers we're seeing now, is one important question that needs to be addressed.
Then pile on additional parking problems, stadium entry/exit issues, more traffic than A2 can currently handle, and you could have a less pleasant game day experience that might encourage folks to stay home and watch games on TV.
I'd hate to see rows of empty seats at Michigan Stadium on game day, as happened at many games in the 50s and early 60s when I was still being taken by my parents.
So there may be compelling reasons not to do this beyond the tradition of the Big House's configuration, and even beyond whether the view from the seats would be worth the price of admission.

That hat looks like it was on sale at a gas station or car wash.
Whether that's a good thing, or a not-so-good thing is up to you.

I believe I live in what is now rightly called Michissippi.
Declining schools? Check.
Loads of other problems too numerous to list? Check.
Lots of stuff happening here that needs to be put right before we rag on a bunch of other folks, in my humble estimation,
Michigan is certainly no model of good government.

I like Spinal Tap more than I like Star Wars.
I like Harbaugh as a coach more than I liked Hoke as a coach. I always felt Hoke's teams were likely to disintegrate at any moment in a game. I feel that Harbaugh's are more likely to pull one out and not fall apart (and yes, MSU, but I can't put that on JH).
I also lked Milton Berle's TV show more than Red Skelton's. Most of you are too young to know who those guys were.
So none of my opinions matter.

I love that Harbaugh does things differently. Michigan has the resources to do so, and is now leading the way forward.
Yost was an innovator, too. Great people do things their way and aren't so interested in "me, too."

Amazing what a tenuous string we all hold onto life by.

My Dad volunteered after Pearl Harbor, went to officer school, and demolished mines on beaches while serving in the ordinance corps. He was a lieutenant.
He died in 1986, and was a super guy. We all still miss him.

I guess you haven't seen the garbage dump mountain that's been growing by leaps and bounds next to I-275 near I-94, then.

I don't hate any school or fan base, not even OSU and MSU.
But I speak only for myself. In any case,here's the root of Sparty's hate for Michigan: resentment.
Michigan is a much tougher school for applicants to get an acceptance letter from than MSU. Lots of MSU alums and students were outright rejected by Michigan, and lots didn't bother applying because they knew they'd be rejected.
Rejection seems to hurt their feelings. It plays into their disrespect mantra.
In any case, they seem to hate Michigan more than Michigan hates them, but lately it's getting reciprocated because Michigan hasn't been very successful against MSU in football. So Michigan fans are showing frustration.
Harbaugh will turn this around, and soon the so-called rivalry will return to its divinely-ordained, one-sided resentment. Sparty will care a lot. Wolverines fans will ignore them.
And all will be well with the world again.
