I love ML's shtick. Ever since newsmedia went from morning, afternoon and nightly news and a few outlets, papers and magazines here or there to 24/7 coverage by a gazillion media entities, the quality and integrity of our news and sports reporting took a massive nose dive. 75% of media is looking to post any story, no matter how negative or hurtful. I love that ML gives them all I giant middle finger and let's his running do his talking. Wish more athletes, not to mention musicians, actors and others were like him that way.

Let's not set too high expectations for next year. We have no QB. Let's start with a 7-5 expectation and work from there. No point in putting too much pressure on Jim as he has a lot of work to do.

I think the true Harbaugh reference is hidden somewhere in:
"A mulato, an albino, a mosquito, my labido. Yeah..."

If you speak Spanish, you'll also get a chuckle as I did at 6 years old every time I'd pass an AMOCO station. (Means "a booger").

If OSU wins the NC then Fort Ohio will be in full effect again and we'll never pry a top Ohio recruit from them so long as Urbz is there. So for the sake of Michigan recruiting, QUACK.

Nothing cracks me up more than when Michigan fans say they want Ohio State to be the best ever so it will be sweeter to beat them, even as they're 10-1 against us in the last 11 years. So ridiculous. Me? I'd like to see Urbz suddenly retire, and Ficket to become HC again, and for Ohio State to suddenly be about as good as Purdue. That's what I'd like to see.

Can we give the man a little breathing room? You're already proclaiming him better than the greatest college football coach in 30 years in Saban? Than other guys with multiple championships? Man, tame the damn expectations so Jim can actually get some things done without our fanbase suffocating him out of here in 3 years.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I remember when I was in||
I remember when I was in undergrad in the 80's and we loved the team, went to the games, cared mostly about the team, the team and the team, and barely knew half the players' names...
Love this blog, and the details and endless information we now have so much easier access to, but where have we come to that as fans where we now ponder such granular bullshit such as this topic...

Great article as always Brian. Digressing, when it comes to optimism there are several camps, and I'm in the guarded optimism camp. While everyone is going gaga over the hire, I choose not to. I owe it to Coach Harbaugh and the program not to set my expectations beyond what is reasonable, so that I can be pleasantly surprised if we go 8-4 next year, as opposed to disappointed as so many here apparently will be.
I'm very happy with this hire, I just hope the fanbase can start doing its part to support Coach Harbaugh by giving him room to breathe, and time to adjust and grow the program back to where it will hopefully be.
We have not won a game yet under Jim. Let's quietly applause the hire and Hackett and, once we beat Sparty and OSU, be it this year or 2016, at that point explode in appreciation for Coach JH.

Vincent let me say I've been following UM for 38 years and you and your teammates are my favorite Wolverines of all time. You guys persevered over adversity the likes of which our teams hadn't faced in a long time and came out on top. Merry Christmas to you! If I didn't live in DC I'd be there in Canton.

Yet another writer who's feeble mind extrapolates the entirety of a fanbase from its fringe few. We all tend to generlize in order to add simplicity and structure to an otherwise infinitely complex world, but when you're talking about writing off entire groups of ppl based upon the actions of a few?
I PUT IT TO YOU GREG! YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT US, BUT WE'RE NOT GOING TO SIT AROUND HERE AND LISTEN TO YOU BADMOUTH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

Harbaugh would get the world's highest score on the 80's video game Mach 5 if he played it underwater in a pool with chlorine even with sharks swimming all around him.

Any chance we can wait on this speculation until we actually land Harbaugh? It's presumptive.

Did you see the product Nuss put on the field this year? If you mean by easier transition that we still want our offense to smell of fecal matter then sure, keep him. He needs to go. The offense was schematically HORRIBLE. Worst just about ever. Fresh start, and we need some spread in here.

This is good news but can just mean she is sizing up the living situation here before rendering her final verdict to her husband as to whether she is willing to move to Michigan. Just one of several data points going into the decision. I am still in "believe it when I see it" mode.

Brings up an important question. Is Mark Cuban actually Cuban?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Disagree. It's the scheme||
Disagree. It's the scheme that makes these players so extremely good, not the other way around. They had 4 new OL this year and looked extremely good.
This was the fundamental difference between Urbz and Hoke - Urbz's schemes made it easy for his players to play well, whereas Hoke's O.C. schemes were a predictable, horrible mess that made his players look awful, no matter how good they might have been in other systems.

Odd why anyone would pay attention to any of these digital windbags after we've been bitten in the ass so many times in the past, like Herbstreit a few years ago. Don't know about the rest of you, but I'm in the "I'll see it when I believe it" category..

Ok with no Miles. Just don't think he's that good of a coach. Better than Hoke? Doesn't take much. But with the talent he has a lock on in La, he underachieves imo. How many of his players are now stars in the League.

This really is like, the perfect storm of circumstances leading us to hire a potentially great fit of a coach for the first time in half a century. If he goes elsewhere I may just say fuck it all and never shower or shave again.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Agree. This would make||
Agree. This would make little sense. Ross obviously wants M athletics to excel given his donations, so there is little chance he would turn around and undermine any chance at getting the one guy who is the perfect hire. There are a number of good NFL coaches out there he can choose from for the Dolphins.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||This reminds me a bit of when||
This reminds me a bit of when Frieder abruptly took the ASU job with the dominant team he had, that Fisher then guided to the championship in '89, thus causing me and thousands of M fans to storm rainy South U and almost get electocuted when some nut climbed and swung from the center street light.
Simply put, Frieder was laid back, and Bo was not, and they just didn't jive, and Frieder was tired of it. This is highly likely what happened at Wisconsin - Andersen just didn't like Alvarez. Much like Bielema. I'll hazard that Alvarez gave Andersen a tongue lashing after the 59-0 game that was the straw breaking the camel's back.
