The amount of confirmation bias and outright hostility towards negative reports around here is really getting excessive...

If he's in, that would be a great hire. Not only as a DC, but as a potential in-house replacement for Harbaugh should he jump back to the NFL at one point.
Not to get ahead of myself of course....

"Football is not fun when you lose. That's a heartbreaking thing. Then there's a new week and new opportunity. I definitely get happier and happier as that new opportunity approaches."
Full quote. It's not about us. Unless you have your tinfoil hat on.
|5 days 9 hours ago||That Harbaugh and 49ers will||
That Harbaugh and 49ers will part ways in the 48 hours after the season ends.
If Harbaugh says that's bunk, do we accelerate our timetables or what?

On the other hand...
I'm sure Harbaugh has talked to people about loving Michigan. I'm sure he has also mentioned that he wishes he didn't have to deal with some of the locker room issues present in the NFL. People put that together with the fact that he's a previous college coach and that is how they come up with "Harbaugh is 90% to UM."
I don't think that anyone really knows anything at this point. It's just an echo chamber of speculation.

I heard Jim Harbaugh once dated someone named Jim Harbaugh.
|1 week 4 days ago||Seems to me that this is what||
Seems to me that this is what happens when there is a metric fuckton of interest in a story, and an equally major lack of any real info. I feel like this entire drama has just become an echo chamber of insiders without much info bouncing around ideas that they heard earlier in the process from other insiders, getting louder the entire time. I wouldn't be surprised if he was 100% in or 100% out at this point. As Brian said, one group is going to look very silly.

Uhhhh, yeah? Exactly that? Would you really hide that from one of your best friends, who is also a UM insider?
|1 week 4 days ago||They said there was only||
They said there was only enough room in the coffers to offer Harbaugh a 1 year deal, but instead as we will soon find out there was enough money for 8 years!
Seriously though, Happy Hanukkah everybody, Harbaugh or no.
|1 week 5 days ago||I can't decide whether I want||
I can't decide whether I want Harbaugh to come here to see all of the NFL analysts lose their minds, or see him go somewhere in the NFL to see this board lose it's collective mind. Cool your jets guys.

Has Football Scoop said anything accurate about this coaching search, ever?

That's one of the most Bleacher Rerport articles I've ever seen. And I mean that in a bad way.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Could he be saying no because||
Could he be saying no because he wants the job but knows that Harbaugh has already agreed to take it???!!1/!11/??!???!?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Doesn't mean anything one way||
Doesn't mean anything one way or another. The likelyhood of him coming here is the same after this comment as it was before (still approximately 0.0% chance imho).
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Whaaaaat? Strikes me as a||
Whaaaaat? Strikes me as a pretty big indictment of Alvarez if two separate successful coaches have jumped ship in lateral (at best) moves.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I took "not relevant to||
I took "not relevant to Michigan" as "not relevant to Michigan's coaching search." As the one guy Michigan is guaranteed to not hire after firing Brady Hoke, Brady Hoke is irrelevant to our search.
No idea if that's what he meant though.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'll take a stab||
Because it took him six years and a team that starts something like 15 seniors to put together a good record? And because of those other five years he mostly won 6/7 games, getting beaten down by every non-awful team that came his way?
I get that he's done more with less than a lot of the guys out there, but his coaching record seems to be much worse than that of Harbaugh or Miles. It's a down year for coaching changes and we could certainly do much worse, but I'm not on that train just yet. He reminds me of any number of mediocre coaches who's name comes up after one good year, only to slip back into mediocrity the next.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||What, because it's not CC||
What, because it's not CC talk? This is a perfectly normal thread to have on a sports blog. Not that we've had many normal threads here lately...
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Funchess is probably a bit||
Funchess is probably a bit faster, and certainly a bigger target. I could see Gardner being a better route runner once he's healthy and has some practice with it, as he's definitely the more agile of the two. I'd have to say Funchess, but I wouldn't be shocked to see Gardner put together a career at WR if he chooses to pursue that.

"I said, 'Are you Harbaugh?' They said, 'I'm Harbaugh if you Harbaugh.' I said, 'We Harbaugh, then.'”
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Why do you say that? Kiffin||
Why do you say that? Kiffin is a very well respected offensive mind and coordinator. That he put up similar numbers to Nuss doesn't reflect poorly on either.

I'm going to abduct your tires. This is ridiculous.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Lmao everybody loves Sam||
Lmao everybody loves Sam until he starts saying things people don't like. Iirc over the past couple of weeks he's been pretty upfront about not having much real insider info. The fact that he's citing sources right now should really tell you something - this guy is legit plugged in, and this shouldn't be discounted just because Brian or Tom Beaver say otherwise.

In retrospect, yes. But at the time it was most certainly a no-brainer. Pretty much everyone, including this blog, thought the hire was a good one.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||lmao... You are blaming the||
You are blaming the current football team on the university's president? You really think Mary Sue had major input on our coaching hires? I certainly hope not. The only thing she had any hand in was hiring Dave Brandon, which at the time seemed like a wonderful idea to pretty much everybody. Would you really have wanted Mary Sue of all people to veto the Athletic Director's choice for a head coach? What makes her qualified to do that in your eyes? Not to mention, she has so many bigger things to handle as the president of the University of Michigan - unlike what MGoBlog may tell you, the school is about more than football.

Not that it really matters for what Belein is saying, but for the record I'm a current UM student and all 4 of my classes today were cancelled. In my experience the majority are.
