|2 days 1 hour ago||Y2K||
If Harbaugh doesn’t happen it’s going to be exactly like Y2K, with a lot of confused posters retreating to their well-provisioned basements, wondering what could have been.

Mouth Throwup for HC - it promises to run an offense with explosive tempo that will leave a bad taste in the mouths of our opponents.
|2 days 1 hour ago||There's going to be a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth||
Define "very realistic." Everything I have seen indicates it's a possibility, but you are overstating the case.
There's going to be a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth around here if it doesn't happen.

This is the same tweet speculation we heard about earlier. Moss and GREGGGG are kinda late to the party here.

Is it possible that this is a veiled ultimatum from Les?
The rumors are out there that his agent has been approached - maybe this is Les' way of telling the AD that he won't sit around for a month and be Michigan's second choice, and that the AD better decide soon if it wants him or not.

I'd rather have a "Plan B" coach than Schiano et. al, because frankly the 'Plan B' guys are pretty damn good options. That includes (included?) Les.
But suggest anything other than Harbaugh on this board lately and the mouth-breathing idiots will be out in force trying to send you to Bolivia. This place has become a case study in group dynamics over the past couple of days.
I don't want to be waiting for Godot - if there aren't clear indications soon from Harbaugh that he's coming, the AD would be smart to move on.

|2 days 3 hours ago||I'm not sure the two are incongruous||
You can want control over football operations and still hate recruiting at the college level, where you have to fly around the country and begin picking out next year's guys as soon as the season ends. Chip Kelly said something to this effect by mentioning that he actually has more free time in the NFL since he isn''t primarily responsible for bringing guys in.
|2 days 3 hours ago||We're similar to UCLA||
We're similar to UCLA academically, except the Michigan football tradition is much stronger.
If Mora is willing to come to Ann Arbor, he'd be an excellent hire. He can bring Rosen and KLS with him, too.

Brian sure seems to think he's on the radar. His latest post indicated as much, so I wouldn't discount the possibility of Mora being interested in the Michigan job.
|1 week 3 days ago||Dude immediately revived a moribound UCLA program||
Dude immediately revived a moribound UCLA program, which is kind of a big deal. He plays clean, understands elite public school academics, and develops NFL talent.
I'm a big fan of his and would rank him right behind Harbaugh on my candidate list: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/cc-jim-mora-jr-everything-michigan-needs

Time for Mora if Harbaugh doesn't come.
|1 week 3 days ago||This is the most likely scenario||
Why contact him directly when you can arrange discussions between the search firm and Les' agent and keep things under wraps?
|1 week 3 days ago||Yup.||
Yup. The image I have in my mind of the typical internet speculator/pontificator is this guy:

It's a Saturday and there's no real news. Sam needs to drum up some clicks, because everyone involved with the search (as well as many of the candidates) are doing other things today. Like coaching.

If Addazio is hired, we might as well inscribe "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here" from the Inferno on the gates of the Big House.
|1 week 4 days ago||Might as well hire Pete Mangurian||
If such terrible choices are going to be made, we might as well hire Pete Mangurian, because the transition to Ivy League-esque football irrelevance would be complete.

I will take a 25% equity stake in Ann Arbor Torch & Pitchfork if either of these clowns is hired.
