You expertly refuted your own argument. Congratulations.

Harbaugh is as close to a perfect fit as we're going to find. He's a Michigan legend. He's the hottest young coach in college football. By all accounts, he wants to come to Michigan. But he's probably only available this year as he's apparently highly sought after in the NFL. Word has it that he's waiting to find out what happens at Michigan before entertaining any other possibilities. So this is probably the only chance to hire him in the near future. If you give RR one more year, and he flames out (and there's lots of potential for this as others have pointed out-- is the D REALLY going to improve much with this talent level and yet a new defensive coordinator? Is that going to make THAT much of a difference for a coach who hasn't managed to achieve one high quality win in 3 years?, etc.), then you're out in the wilderness next year searching for a coach with no clear replacement in sight.
Even Brian's post makes it pretty clear: it's a close call right now on whether or not to fire him. If Harbaugh will come, you fire him. It's that simple. It's probably our only chance to get him.

I do think the UFR will show a lot more pressure than you suggest here. Roh was terrorizing their backfield the whole first half. No sacks, true, but a LOT of hurries if I remember and they were relying almost exclusively on quick developing pass plays so not a lot of opportunities for sacks.

Somebody needs to run the numbers here. This has become one of the major issues among the doubters but it looks like probably a nonissue.

Helps pass the time.

I have to say this preview makes me feel a lot better about our chances. Our offensive line should blow them off the ball and their O is not designed to keep up with the spread and shred. Given all of this, we should definitely be able to win a shootout. And if our linebackers are improved, we should be able to win by a few touchdowns. Less than 24 hrs to go!
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Agree||
I'm with you. It feels like time has stopped.

you guys are too young to remember....That's the old Michigan Replay theme.
