I don't care about the 49ers (or any NFL team for that matter), but I like 49ers fans since they're the only other fanbase that appreciates Harbaugh's quirkiness. Harbaugh is a guy you either love or hate, and 49ers fans are perhaps the only other fanbase that loves him. I'm surrounded by 49ers fans here in the SF Bay Area, and I've had many of them tell me that they knew very little about Harbaugh before the 49ers hired him but that they started following Michigan when Harbaugh left just because they grew to love they way he coached.

Perhaps Freeze will get his wish of having more time to sit on his ass.

He's also Kobe Bryant's agent, he was the subject of some controversy when his client Carlos Boozer reneged on a handshake agreement with the Cavaliers to sign a new contract with the Jazz, and he's generally one of the more visible and noteworthy agents in the NBA. So... yeah.

That's great and all, but none of this matters until we actually beat them. Just sayin'.

I remember that game. They were playing Texas A&M. At the end of regulation, K-State completed a 65-yard would-be Hail Mary as time expired that would have won the game if it wasn't one yard short of the goal line. I felt awful for K-State's players and fans, since that's the kind of loss that you never fully get over.

Fun fact: Michael Bishop was drafted by the Patriots in 1999 and was one of the QBs who was ahead of Tom Brady on the depth chart when Brady began his NFL career.

Is he the same guy who was interviewed for that "Happy Valley" documentary on Netflix?

Wow. Hoping he has a speedy recovery.
Bill Snyder is probably one of the most underrated college football coaches of all time. Kansas State was literally the worst program in FBS when he took over. The turnaround job he orchestrated there was nothing short of amazing.

Well, no one else has been able to win there, so he must be doing something right.

I know what you're getting at, but Harbaugh returning to Michigan is an exception that would never have occurred but for a perfect storm of circumstances that made it possible.

Didn't Capel fail at Oklahoma? It's hard to imagine Duke fans being okay with a dude who was fired from his last head coaching job...
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Somewhere between nil and||
Somewhere between nil and zero. Superstar players on the level of GOAT status rarely, if ever, come back to work for their alma maters full-time. In fact, I can't think of a single example of one who did. Brady will retire when he feels the time is right and move on to manage his vast business and financial empire. He'll make appearances here and there (and perhaps a few donations, if we're lucky), but don't expect anything more than that.

I'm not a Peyton Manning fan (I think we all know who the GOAT is, and it's not Peyton Manning), but I don't think Manning has done anything to merit being mentioned in the same sentence as the ugliness at Baylor. To the contrary, he's actually a stand-up guy and a class act.
There are many reasons why Tennessee doesn't have a reputation as a paragon of virtue. Peyton Manning is not one of them.

Crap, I was pretty bullish on Asiasi next season. Oh well, family comes first. I hope everything works out and that we seem him on the field again soon.

I never liked Tiger Woods. Everyone who knows him and has dealt with him says he's an asshole.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I've never thought very||
I've never thought very highly of Tom Herman as a coach. Houston shit the bed last season (relative to expectations) because Herman was busy dreaming about other jobs. They didn't even play in their conference championship game. I don't get why this guy was seen as such a rockstar.
As for the quality of his first Texas recruiting class, it's an incredibly bad look for him to even acknowledge the chatter about how far Texas' recruiting has fallen. Everyone knows that Texas isn't recruiting like they used to and that things are especially challenging this year due to the coaching transition, but all Herman needs to say is, "We're very pleased with the class we signed this year, we've got some talented, high-character kids who are passionate about Texas, and we're excited to build for the future." He doesn't need to make excuses or talk about rankings or star ratings. But all I've heard from Herman are whiny remarks in which he throws his own recruiting class under the bus and makes excuses. Pretty pathetic.

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
They don't make TV like that anymore. All they got now are bullshit reality shows and the same damn stand-up comedy special delivered by ten different comedians.

This stings, for a number of reasons: 1) I can't really argue with his reasoning, 2) it highlights the fact that we're not on 'Bama's level yet, and 3) he seems like a pretty level-headed, down-to-earth kid who would have been a great addition to the class.
Ah well, c'es la vie. Best of luck to him.

My guess is that if Harbaugh is indeed planning to make such signifant changes to the offense next season, he's doing it because he thinks it gives us the best chance to win a Big Ten title despite having lost so much talent and experience from this year's team. Yet another thing to love about Harbaugh: he will never settle for second best, no matter how his team stacks up on paper.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||You have to wonder why he||
Because the overwhelming majority of sportswriters are idiots, that's why.

Harbaugh probably requires interviews of candidates with whom he doesn't have a history. Frey has the advantage of having previously coached at Michigan, but he's never coached under Harbaugh. There's also the potentially awkward fact that during his previous Michigan stint, Frey worked for a head coach who was fired and thought of as a total outsider, so Harbaugh probably wants to talk with Frey and make sure he's a guy who can be on the same page with the rest of the current staff.

There are plenty of successful position coaches who didn't play the position they coach, and plenty of crappy position coaches who did play the position they coach. As far as I know, there isn't a correlation between success as a position coach and having played the position as a player.
