I don't really get this sentiment. Dantonio and Sparty will continue to be a bother to Michigan going forward (hell, Lloyd had his losses to Sparty) but Jim Harbaugh will, bottom line, cause significant problems for the football program in East Lansing.
Pete Carroll can attest to what it's like having Harbaugh as your rival. This is Dantonio's future but with less talent than at USC.

I don't really know if the Indy 500 really made the sport tick or not. With the change came a loss of most premier drivers to NASCAR and relegation to god damned versus. Sure, he had a keystone but the value of it slipped through his hands like sand...much to NASCAR's benefit.
If soccer had two competing world cups but one had most of UEFA, the US, Korea, Australia, Brazil and some of South America it would not kill the sport. Media markets and sponsors run that deal. Nike, VISA, Adidas etc. would go with wherever the major media markets and tv went...that's not with FIFA.

Tony George's seceding from CART was a clusterfcuk of epic proportions leaving two groups of owners with very different visions (CART being more road racing vs. IRL/IndyCar as ovals mostly) competing and splicing the sport for years. What it led to was, essentially, the death of open wheel racing in North America (save for the periodic competing F1 appearance anually in Montreal and for a time at Indy). Indy Racing League (IRL) and now Indycar took a competitive series with varied set ups/power/drivers/powerplants and consolidated with crap designs they uniformed for every team. Oh, and they were competitively corrupt...look up Paul Tracy and the Indianapolis 500 and see what happened.
Bottom line, Tony George's power play didn't really work out as it splintered the series and has left Indycar (once a regular feature on ABC) with only one major tv date and shown on Versus/NBCSN or, god help me, CNBC if rodeo or something more popular is available. The split in Indycar coincided with the rise of NASCAR (a network darling). In the modern era NASCAR matters...Indycar, sadly, doesn't.
I don't know much about soccer either (except to support England and ManCity). Sure, Tony George recognized CART wouldn't survive without Indy but, bottom line, what the hell does he have left? Four weeks in May and a sport Danica Patrick and Tony Stewart (among others) left for NASCAR. Open wheel is a shell of what it once was...and as a fan that sucks.
I do think UEFA could succeed vs. FIFA but for different reasons. UEFA would take a significant number of the top 30 teams in the world. IRL, in splitting with CART did not...they just took the vest venue. Big difference in what you're referencing.

Peruse the comments section during the Olympics when my fellow Canadias were *definitely* going to lose to a) the Americans; b) the Russians and c) the Swedes. The pressure on the head coach of the Canadian team is unbelievable and, unlike the American team which is an interesting anecdote on the sporting landscape, the analysis of the Canadian team (inclusions/exclusions/coaching staff etc.) is a months long media exercise.
Babcock's Canadian team won with ridiculously effective defensive play in the last Olympics. That was application of his systems. He got buy in from the best players in the world to stop their usual roles and embrace defensive hockey (see Jamie Benn, Ryan Getzlaff and Corey Perry on a 2nd line and Patrick Marleau, Jonathan Toews and Jeff Carter on the checking line). Players win games. They won at the Olympics, handily, using Babcock's system.
Canada hasn't won gold at every Olympics despite having enough talent to send an a, b, and c team. Coaching matters. Canadians respect Babcock's efforts, believe me.

Pat Burns owned Toronto. I don't see any reason why Babcock can't have the same sort of impact and/or relationship with the media. Burns was at turns surly and irritable yet he won games and was beloved by the fanbase.

The guy is going to get paid a zillion dollars in Toronto. If he wins a cup in Toronto he'll be sainted, schools will be named after him and he'll get his own postage stamp.
It's hard to describe the impact that winning a cup in Toronto would have professionally for him. Babcock is, I am sure, a confident guy. He could see where winning a cup in Toronto and ending the streak of horror would place him in the hockey pantheon. If someone is going to pay you like that to try, why not?
|1 week 5 days ago||.................||
I'm sorry I didn't clarify that Les Miles did not become our coach. The "new Carr Les Miles" meme was a constant in the 06/07 MGoEra with the feelings of many in the fanbase along the lines of "we can do better" than Carr (having of course been in the conversation for a MNC game in 06).
The meme led to joyous celebration from many (I was admittedly hopeful) about RR. New isn't always better. But good luck replacing a Stanley Cup winner with your minor league championship coach.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm glad he's with the Leafs.||
As a Leafs/Browns/Cavs/Tribe fan I've seen more than my share of suffering these past years. Michigan used to be...well, Michigan. I'm hopeful about Harbaugh (got season tix, how about you?) and Babcock the same way.
The bottom line is that no matter how much people here try to convince themselves that somehow their team is better with Blashill running things they are completely wrong. You don't lose a Stanley Cup winning coach, an Olympic Gold medal winning coach and hell, a CIS winning coach and not be worse for it.
As a long suffering Leafs fan, I'm happy about that.
|1 week 5 days ago||This is well said.||
As a Leafs fan I was pretty pleased with Babcock's decision to move to the centre of the hockey universe. Like it or not, that is Toronto. I think Wings fans (current vintage) all forget the Dead Wings era from 67 to 82 or even the early Yzerman years with one star player and nothing else through the early 90's. If people are glad to see Babcock go I think they should think about a saying typed often on these boards in the middle of the last decade "We need a new Carr with Les Miles". I think we all know how that worked out.

|5 weeks 21 hours ago||Re: Hackett's Waiting List||
I think that comment is a bit of smoke and mirrors and here is why: last season there was an email sent from Michigan to former ticket purchasers that if they bought a select pack of tickets that they would have the opportunity to buy season tickets this year (note, not mention of either donation or psd). I would think that there would be some traction on that and that a "list" was created from those individuals who wanted to get season tickets (probably not gigantic, though)
Most recently, Michigan has been sending the letter the OP mentioned to past ticket purchasers who have an online account with Michigan (several of my relations received it) and it indicates that the minimum donation is $150 while stating, plainly, that every effort will be made to get donors of that level season tickets. They make no guarantees but this would be a plane skywriting level error in marketing if they solicited donations, intimated the likelihood of season tickets and then pulled the carpet on it. Brandon, perhaps...Hackett, no.
So Hackett has his "list" from the 3-pack buyers last fall and pretty much all the new donors at $150 (a couple people I know have done this recently) so he's not exactly lying about it. He's just kind of not telling how he got the list to form...
FWIW, I think this is a good idea for Michigan. Despite the Harbaugh factor there is a real difference between drawing 60 k for a free spring game and 109 k (at $65 a ticket for UNLV). Brandon was not wrong about the competition being my 55 inch, recliners and bottle of Glenlivet 18 (necessary for the last several years) with a large glass. Hackett has made every effort to engage potential season ticket holders and, in the current economic climate, probably has to...

With the translation of success from college to the pros that both Pete Carroll and Chip Kelly have had and the ongoing success of Nick Saban at Alabama I think there has been some bridging of the divide between college and the NFL. Obviously, HBO has an axe to grind here as an NFL "partner" (albeit a minor one).
I haven't seen so much coverage on Harbaugh going back to the NFL as much as a view that he gave AA the "hometown discount" and sheer incredulousness from shield shilling analysts that thats is such an incredible move.
|6 weeks 9 hours ago||Bottom Line||
Harbaugh gets paid to deliver wins. That's his job. Recruit elite players and coach them to win.
He has clearly identified this young man at that level. Ultimately, it's his responsibility to perform and he's putting his credibility as TE guru etc. on the line here.
I hope he's correct in this call. No guarantees, I suppose (see Sills, David)
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||Wait a minute...||
Okay, now you're just being ridiculous. You are intimating that starzzz are an objective factor?. Exactly how do you think the sites arrive at star rankings, anyway? Jeebus.
FWIW, there is a rather large difference between trusting the coaches and expecting them to do their job. Harbaugh is well compensated at $6 mil per year and part of his job description involves bringing the best talent to Michigan so he can coach them to win games. Period.
The interesting thing is that he and the staff ultimately decide what that means in terms of "best" and his job performance (like Brady Hoke's) will ultimately be determined in wins/losses. I never said "trust the coaches" but I will say, as I have said before, that it is my expectation that Harbaugh does his job and brings in talent to win games. If he wants to pin his credibility on this young man and the others he recruits, well, fair enough...it's on him.
He certainly has the track record to back up picking tight ends.
Troll on fella, troll on.
|6 weeks 15 hours ago||Well...||
He's going to think that there are mostly reasonable fans who look big picture at Harbaugh's success in both college and the NFL and assume he has some credibility in giving the offer. He's also going to think that there is an irrational bunch of jackass fans around who post negatively (he's going to search "three star mafia" on Brian's site) who are motivated by irrational anger at the team's performance since 1997, who feel entittled to "all the starzzzzz" and for whom Trieu, Wiltfong and top 247 lists are the only true arbiters of talent.

Browns fan. I dislike these new uniforms.
OP, what the hell are you talking about..."teams with no history, no equity and no brand". That is the most ridiculous assessment of the Browns.
While Browns management have historically been legendarily inept (see Modell, Art; Policy, Carmen; Clark, Dwight; Holmgren, Paul and on and on) they retain the equity of the NFL's most loyal fanbase. These are the same fans who supported the return of the team to Cleveland (our team/our colors) whose history beyond the 64 NFL Championship and the greatest of all time Jim Brown is one only of suffering: the Drive, the Fumble and Red Right 88 to start.
The Browns could just model their modern stuff on the '64 championship gear and I'd be more than happy with that. They don't need to be Oregon.

Says a guy with a Wings photo in his profile. Toronto can offer him money, term and control. If Shanahan is willing to move Nonis and give Babcock personnel control this is a very different situation for him. I do not think he would come to Toronto in a million years for anything less than huge money, term and total personnel control.
The current state of the Leafs roster is, evidently, terrible but control and money might inform a different set of decisions for Babcock. That's not delusion, it's fact. Of course the Toronto media is focused on hockey; despite the brutal nature of the Leafs for a thousand years the passion of that fanbase is unmatched. I'm old enough to have lived in Windsor in the 80's and recall the 80's and early 90's Wings teams (see Larson, Reed) and the very empty Tampa like JLA. Those teams, and the Wings in general, were as bad as this generation of the Leafs. I find the arrogance of Wings fans of the current era kind of amusing given this parallel.
Bottom line, if Babcock were to come to Toronto and win he'd be sainted. He can't ever achieve anything like that in Detroit. I think he probably doesn't go to Toronto but he'd have compelling reasons to think about it.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Heh.||
Take off your Wings fan glasses. If people think Toronto won't be a realistic option or a serious factor in this thing then they are delusional. Toronto can offer roster control (by eliminating Dave Nonis) which Babcock won't ever get with Detroit and they have the ability to pay him ridiciulous amounts of money with term (neither Pittsburgh or Edmonton have these types of resources). Is that the right move? Hard to say. On the other hand, the guy who actually wins consistently with the Leafs will be sainted like a combination of Bo/Return of Harbaugh (only more sainted and twice as beloved).

A couple things, actually. You said it yourself "great evaluator of talent"...it's funny that the opposite of your take here was often a criticism of Hoke's recruiting: "he gets 4 and 5 stars who play like 3 stars". That and the criticism about not developing talent.
Harbaugh has Hoke's 4 and 5 star classes and a record of developing NFL talent. It will be interesting to see how he makes that talent develop. He has a record of having a good eye for talent and building programs. Obviously, Michigan has offered a high volume of 4 star players in the current cycle. I'm not totally a "trust the coaches" guy but Harbaugh has a lot more credibility than any board poster or, god help me, Trieu, Wiltfong, Webb et al. in talent evaluation. It's not like "oh noes we don't have any talent...".
Complicating matters, as high profile and great as the Harbaugh hire has been...Michigan football has been crappy for almost a decade. Kids were young when Lloyd was relevant in 06 and tOSU just won a National Championship. I'd say slow your roll on expectations until Harbaugh wins 9 or 10 games next fall....

We did make mistakes," Meyer said of his time at Florida, which included winning two BCS national titles. "If I look back now, the biggest mistake I probably gave second chances to some people that maybe shouldn't. But this is someone's son. I know in my soul we're doing it right, doing the best we can. Did we make mistakes? We make mistakes (raises hand)."

Calling high school kids a "bum" and "trash" is bottom of the barrel. You're better than that, I'm sure.
Bottom line, offending high school athletes as an anonymous poster online is gutless and wrong.

|18 weeks 1 day ago||I don't get these hot takes on Barwis/Wellman||
"Those teams always faded, too"
Except Wisconsin 2008 (20-6 in the 4th quarter), ND in 2009, ND in 2010, the 67-65 game to Illinois in 2010...
I get that Michigan has underperformed (versus expectation of the position and versus expectation of team results) since Lloyd retired. But the absolute certainty the "always" statements and attribution is a bit much.
I'm no RichRod defender but I respect Barwis and what he has achieved professionally. It's not an accident he is retained by professional teams and is succuessful.
Coaching, scheme (or lack of coherent one defensively for RR) and recruited talent had far more to say about Rod's results than S&C imho.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Nice work.||
But it is really hard to predict with so many kids playing it close to the vest.

Good memories there. He's not a bad guy when you meet him, either. Even if you are a Wings homer you can appreciate his toughness and moxie.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Hmmmmm....||
I've seen Max Domi often in the OHL and he is the real deal (as demonstrated in last month's no-contest of a World Junior Championship).
He would have been dominant at Michigan.

Of course you do because: "who's got it better than us?"

Since you won't be around here much, or for long, I won't pay you any mind.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Hmmmmmm....||
I'm pretty certain that one Jim Harbaugh has plenty of obsession on this thing (and every other game).
FWIW, I don't think the players lost recent games to MSU due to not "obsessing" enough, nor our fans not "obsessing" enough. This sort of meme falls into the whole "our players are entitled" under Hoke meme, or "Sparty wants it more" meme etc.
Bottom line, the team lost because they were outcoached, outschemed and out exectuted. None of this was because they didn't take it "seriously" enough. If anything, wasn't Hoke celebrated for "understanding" the rivalries?
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Srsly.||

|20 weeks 6 days ago||Wow.||
I don't even know where to go here. So, sitting in your couch, or in your seats at the stadium ( I assume yours are in or near the locker room and thus way better than my own to make such assertions) you've come to see some level of entitlement among the higher ranked players...like how, exactly? Of course, it's your spider sense? A "feeling"?
