For those of you smarter than me out there: Has there ever been a more impressive staff assembled than this one at least as far as previous coaching experience? Have any new head coaches hired in the last few years brought in such talent?
Also, any idea what kind of money these guys are making? It'll be interesting to see the AD spend on coaches this year compared to last....
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Other than money - which I've||
Other than money - which I've read might not even reach the Michigan amount offered - I can't for the life of me figure out why he'd want to coach the Raiders. That team is absolute garbage and the owner is a nutjob. What's the appeal??

Thats strange because I heard from a very reliable source that it was Thornton that Michigan offered the $48 million cash to at signing....

OR he could be an assistant to the agent gone rogue ... I've been following him and he seems as credible as anyone else, which is not saving much granted.

The handler probably should have fed the dog before the competition though.... LOL

I can only assume that there are confidentialily provisions that go along with these kinds of offers, in which case it would be a breach of confidentiality on the agent's part if he did it without Harbaugh's permission. But maybe the agent-client relationship is different from the attorney-client relationship....
|22 weeks 6 days ago||I agree that college football||
I agree that college football is like the minor leagues. No question. But who in the world hasn't wished at some point in their careers that they could go back to college? Hell I wish that every damn day!
The fact of the matter is he may make less money at Michigan but he'll be the king of the program (and probably campus too). At an NFL team there's at least 2-3 players that get more publicity and hold more import in a franchise. He'll encounter the same resistance from some players that don't like his approach (all NFL teams have those prima donnas) that he allegedly gets in San Franciso. And depending on the franchise a head coach has at least 2 senior managers (owner(s) and GM).
At the end of the day, this will be a change-of-lifestyle decision. I may be ignorant of the world but I made this same kind of choice and it was the best decision of my life. Maybe he'll be smart enough to do the same....

Thanks for posting.
I say leverage away, NFL! Bring it, and if you win, good for you. Michigan throws out its best offer and says top it. And if someone does and Harbaugh wants the money more than going back home to Ann Arbor and saving his alma mater, go for it. But this'll be the last chance he gets to come back I suspect and hope.
Set the table. You don't like the food, get the fuck out of the house.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||No no no. Its neither.||
No no no. Its neither. Hackett offered him access to the M solar-powered car. They heard from third-party sources that he really wanted to travel across the country in that bad boy.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||No Cowherd is wrong. JUCOs||
No Cowherd is wrong. JUCOs are not going to be part of this arrangement. I heard through respected channels that all academic restrictions are going to be removed as far as football recruiting is concerned. There'll be no reason to recruit JUCOs because Harbaugh will be able to get these kids right out of high school.
Do people really think an initial offer would include something like the ability to recruit JUCOs? It MIGHT include reference to the private jet but I highly doubt its even that specific. These reporters are so fucking stupid.

Its a really shitty feeling, isn't it! I never thought I would reach this point, where one of the things I always looked forward to is now something I avoid. And I blame Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||I've reached the point where||
I've reached the point where I want to punch people that are trying their best to be positive (except for SupportBradyHoke on Twitter - she is good people). If positivity picks up then people will start to think things are somehow tolerable. Tolerable is potentially enough to not get Hoke and Brandon fired and I'm not having any of that! So to all you positive people: STFU! (no really, but you know what I mean)
|33 weeks 2 days ago||The sad thing is that it has||
The sad thing is that it has been like this throughout Michigan history (as I'm sure you know). Michigan has been notorious for failing to match an opponent's energy level, especially underdogs that want to beat the big, bad Wolverines. And its why Michigan seems to fail to blow out teams that should never be able to hang around. Its always puzzled me and I've always blamed it on coaching but maybe its just the something that Michigan will never be able to match? Either way, its annoying as hell.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||I guess I'm a fair weather||
I guess I'm a fair weather fan now (30 years of watching, attended undergrad, donated to AD, etc. notwithstanding) but I had a great weekend because I chose not to watch the game. I DVRed it just in case they won or something great happened but I don't have the time or patience to watch this team play anymore. If I lived in the area and had tickets I'd probably go because, well, I'm a robot. But there's lots of better TV to watch and/or video games to play for fun. Watching Michigan games is no longer fun.

If panic hasn't already set in and worn off by this point in the season, after what we've seen, you must be the most stoic person I've ever "met" on the interwebs.
Oh, and your avatar makes me want to e-punch you in the throat.

Florida is going to hire Jim Harbaugh and Michigan is going to hire Muschamp.

I love how everyone references Brandon's time "playing" under Bo. Did he even see any real game time?
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Brandon flat out stated that||
Brandon flat out stated that he would be sitting in on Rodriguez's coaches meetings back when he was first hired. I assume he said that in hopes that fans would feel like they could trust the system more than before but i thought it was a fucking joke that he'd take time out of his day to do that. But he said it. And I have no reason to think that changed once Hoke was hired.
It IS surprising to hear that Hoke isn't in the film meetings to but, honestly, can things get any worse optically at this point? Its just another drop in the bucket, true or not.
