|1 day 6 hours ago||What's YOUR deal???||
|1 day 8 hours ago||Concur||
I'm a little leary hearing Mattison is staying. If it's as a position coach, fine. If it's as DC, no thanks.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Mattison||
just please make sure he's not allowed to call the prevent defense towards the end of a half.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Stanford||
was a true rebuilding job. I think the situations at Stanford and UM are apples and oranges. If you look at the recruiting rankings for the Big Ten the last 4 years, OSU and UM are light years ahead of everyone else in terms of the number of 4 and 5 star recruits they've signed. The question, imo, is how quickly Harbaugh can develop these recruits. QB is a definite question mark though.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Fickell????||
Unless the 'interim' tage counts him out.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Most frustrating||
thing to me about the defense was how often the opponent scored right before halftime and to a lesser extent on their first drive after halftime.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Mattison||
I just hope he isn't in charge of the two minute defense. I'm tired of seeing teams go right down the field against his prevent defense.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Agree||
I'll preface this by saying recruiting rankings aren't the end all be all, but in general they give you a pretty good idea of how much potential should be on a roster. If you look at recruiting rankings over the last 4-5 years in the Big Ten, OSU and UM have far and away accumulated more 4 and 5 star players then the other Big Ten teams. The 3rd place team, Nebraska, isn't even close to UM in terms of the amount of 4 and 5 star high school recruits on the roster. If UM can get the right coach (Harbaugh please) that can develop players and can continue to recruit like Hoke did (if not possibly better), I don't think it's to far fetched to see UM and OSU dominating the Big Ten.

doesn't he still have the 'show cause' punishment for a couple more years or does that only apply if he's the head coach?
|6 days 20 hours ago||Marcus Allen too||
Was on USC's team that won the NCAA title in '79. Heisman in '81, won Super Bowl with the Raiders in '83 and HOF in 2003. Allen also has a Super Bowl MVP in '83 as well as the NFL MVP in 1985.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Agree||
As much as people want to believe recruits are choosing a school to attend, the relationship a recruit has with the coaching staff is huge. With the top end recruits they've been recruited by schools for 2-3 years. They've probably had numerous phone conversations as well as face to face conversations with various members of a schools coaching staff. Yeah, there's some recruits who put a lot of stock in the actual school but for most of these kids the relationship they have with the coaching staff is going to be one of, if not the, primary decision as to where they go.
|1 week 2 days ago||And in two of those wins||
UM probably executed their only two successful 2 minute offenses under Hoke.
|1 week 2 days ago||A lot of the programs you list||
as having great 5-6 runs, also pay for it with NCAA sanctions due to them getting caught for breaking rules.
|1 week 2 days ago||Come on folks||
Brian isn't in San Francisco. He's in Santa Clara.
|1 week 2 days ago||Honestly||
I don't see Harbaugh as a long term coach at UM. I think he still has NFL aspirations so even if he comes to UM, I don't think he stays much longer then 6-8 years.
|1 week 4 days ago||She's just looking||
You know how some people have winter homes or summer homes? She's just looking for a fall/autumn home.
|1 week 4 days ago||Lived in Bay Area||
from the early 90's to the early 00's. While these teams do not play each other often during the regular season, there is a definite desire to be the alpha dog in the area.
|1 week 4 days ago||Full control for Jim||
I wonder how the Niners would handle the chances of a team trading for Harbaugh and giving him full control. Completely hypothetical here - Niners say we'll take a 4th round this year and 6th round next year if we're trading him to be your coach. Oh, you're giving him a GM title as well. We also want a 2nd round pick either this year or next year then too.
|1 week 4 days ago||Raiders||
I can't believe the Niners would trade Harbaugh to their cross town rivals. These people have egos. If Harbaugh turns around the Raiders and the Niners fail to get back to their NFC Championship game level in Harbaugh's first 3 years, the Niners management would be reminded of that every day in the papers, radio, tv, etc.
|1 week 5 days ago||One of the big reasons||
RR left WVU is because he and the AD didn't get along.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm not sure||
what the language is in Harbaugh's contract, but I'm guessing there aren't too many NFL teams who will trade for Harbaugh unless he signs an extension as part of the trade. He's only under contract through 2015. Whatever the language is in Harbaugh's contract I'm guessing he'll be able to kill any trade simply be refusing to sign an extension with the proposed new team.
|1 week 5 days ago||John Robinson and the Rams||
"USC picked up the guy that made the local NFL team watchable..."
The Rams were watchable before Robinson arrived. They were actually one of the best teams in the NFC during the 70's. They made the Super Bowl in 1979, losing to the Steelers.
They won something like 5 or 6 straight NFC West titles in the 70's but with the exception of 1979 could never get by Dallas or Minnesota. Their dline was known as the Fearsome Foursome (3 of the 4 guys are in the HOF).
|1 week 5 days ago||Harbaugh's contract with SF||
doesn't end for a year. He's signed with the Niners through the 2015 season.
|1 week 5 days ago||Harbaugh's options||
aren't completely in his hands with regards to the NFL. He's under contract with the Niners through the 2015 season. So while there will be other openings besides the Raiders, the Niners aren't just going to cut Harbaugh loose and let him be a free agent. Any NFL team interested in Harbaugh will technically have to work through the Niners.
|1 week 5 days ago||I wonder if this will lead||
in the future to more upward migration of D3 and D2 coaches. Buffalo hired the Wisconsin-Whitewater coach. Stitt went from D2 to 1-AA. While these are rare cases right now, I wonder if we'll see that trend continue and possibly increase.
|1 week 6 days ago||It's night and day||
Agree. While the X's and O's are similiar, if not the same, a lot of the off field stuff is very completely different with college and the nfl.
|1 week 6 days ago||John Harbaugh||
was he ever really a serious candidate outside of some internet postings? The guy has spent the last 15+ years in the NFL. He's won a Super Bowl and the Ravens are a pretty solid organization. Outside of some rumblings with the Ray Rice incident Harbaugh seems to get along with Ozzie and the Ravens front office pretty well.
|1 week 6 days ago||Foley and Muschamp||
Not sure why Foley gets negged for the initial hiring of Muschamp. It obviously didn't work out but at the time it was a huge get for Florida. Muschamp was one of the hottest names out there and was lined up to be the next head coach at Texas. At the time of the Muschamp hire most people thought Foley had pulled one out of his hat.
|1 week 6 days ago||The clock is ticking though||
IMO, with the Niners eliminated from the plalyoffs, the clock begins to tick for Hackett. As long as the Niners still were in the playoff hunt, we could all sit back and say nothing is going to happen. I think the window now is about 3 weeks. I'm guessing Hackett would like to have a coach in place relatively soon after the calendar turns to 2015.
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||Disagree||
as long as Jim is still employed by the Niners, other teams cannot talk to him about a potential job. The best situation is for the Niners to keep him under contract and try to trade him. UM can talk to Harbaugh all they want while other NFL teams technically cannot talk to him.
As long as Harbaugh remains under contract with the Niners, the only leverage he has in controlling if and where he coaches in the NFL next year is by agreeing to or refusing to sign an extension with a new team via a trade.
