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

It was Stretchgate that made us think he was cool. He handled that like a boss. Unfortunately, it was the last time he handled anything like a boss.

Not sure you get how it works. Ablauf doesn't get Harbaugh to talk to the media. Ablauf releases statements, schedules conferences, etc. If Harbaugh doesn't want to do a press conference, there is no conference. Kind of like right now.

I remember when Nike first outfitted the team in the 1990s, and people were upset because the swoosh was going to sully our uniform. They got over it, as evidenced by the fact that some here are losing their shit because the swoosh won't be making its return.

From my experience, the more money a league is worth, the more likely that some shady shit is going to happen ("teams buying players from lowly teams using share of winnings" being the most prevalent), meaning its more likely that you're actually going to hate or fight someone over something that was supposed to be an enjoyable pastime.
I advocate going the other way. Everyone chip in one time to buy a WWE Championship belt for $250. Winner gets it until next season. You won't find a cooler trophy, and everyone remains friends.

And, it's because of all of those so-called Walmart fans that Nike/UA/Adidas gives Michigan massive apparel deals the type of which only few other schools could even dream.

That's a cop out. They may not expressly say "this kid sucks." But by criticizing the coach because for offering him, and accepting the commitment, you're not only implying "this kid sucks" but you're implying it as an assumed fact that the coach doesn't seem to understand.

NFL reporters report what they are told by team execs and agents. If the Jets/Bears told him they weren't interested, which they probably did since they don't want to look like they were turned down, that's what Clayton reported. The problem is that a reporter's job is also to cut through the bullshit. Thus the story looks like Harbaugh was either too expensive (Bears, which they definitely don't want reported) or there wasn't any interest (Jets/Raiders/anyone else). Clayton reported the denial rather than the story.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||What the fucking fuck,||
What the fuck, people? One guy wants me to posbang a new user for posting a Terry Foster column and another is posting Ace Williams. What's next? Is Drew Sharp himself going to post in this thread?
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Two truths;1) The source for||
Two educated guesses:
1) The source for at least one of these guys is Harbaugh's agent. Why would an agent lie to a reporter? As they all are using circumstances to infer that he's staying in the NFL (just as we are using circumstances to infer it's happening), they refuse to consider that they might have been pauns in an agent's plan to make sure Michigan's offer wasn't the "this is Michigan, fergodsakes" offer. At least Brian and others have been open to the idea that in the end, there's an attraction to staying in the pros.
2) Most of these guys "sources" are each other. It's kind of like the 247 Crystal Ball bullshit. One guy gets some piece of information and they all fall in line with their "people I'm talking to are saying..." crap.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||I doubt he was ever really in||
I doubt he was ever really in the picture, since his job should be relatively safe after winning the Super Bowl just two years ago. I think the idea of his candidacy was based on the Ray Rice thing and John's reported-and-later-denied dissent over the Ravens keeping Rice initially.

Beyond the utter stupidity of the Denard Robinson quote is the one where he shits on us for being so stupid because we don't like sponsorships and in stadium advertising. Like we're all our grandpas upset because things aren't 1950. Hey asshole! If I wanted that shit as part of my gameday experience, I'd just pay to watch the NFL. Shit, I'd save money in doing so for a superior product! And the players would actually receive money compensation!
