Its not leverage, but him or his agent leaking it lets NFL teams know where the floor is for an offer. i.e. if you want my client, you better be prepared to make him the highest paid coach in football.
|4 days 6 hours ago||That's what I think too||
That's pretty much what I think too. The leak of the offer is clearly a move by his agent to let Harbaugh's NFL suitors know what the floor is for negotiations. Seems like its the Raider or Jets. Oakland seems historically fucked up, but might ceed full control to Harbaugh. Salary + location + a top 5'ish pick to work with...that's kind of tempting.
For the Jets, they'll also be in that top 5 range in the draft, but if Harbaugh doesn't want to go to the Raiders, and its NYC or Ann Arbor, seems like Ann Arbor would be the choice. NYC is just as cold, its expensive, and its a pressure cooker there with the media.
Either way, its gonna be a long 2-3 weeks until we know.

I know its the NFL and they shit money, but $8M a year is a lot of dough. Wonder how many owners would be willing to double their current/former coaches' salary AND hand over control of the front office to Harbaugh. Oakland is paying $3M a year for Dennis Allen. In Chicago, Trestman makes $4.5M/yr. If Michigan is offering $8M/yr you're going to need to match or exceed that and figure out if you want to hand over a lot or all of Phil Emery's duties to Harbaugh. Some teams might just say fuck it and offer someone else $4-5M and keep the status quo in the front office.
|4 days 7 hours ago||$10M/yr||
I said months ago they should just offer him $10M a year. Make it impossible to say no. Looks like we're getting close to that point.

Oakland is likely moving in the next couple of years to LA. So he would be moving either way.
|1 week 1 day ago||He'll make more than 62 FBS head coaches||
According to Bruce Feldman, Muschamp will make more than 62 head coaches. Which is crazy. Worth it, but crazy.
|1 week 1 day ago||This was the first time since '07 ESPN broadcast it||
This was the first time since '07 ESPN broadcast the Iron Bowl, and CBS will most likely have the game again for the next several years. CBS normally has the game, but they opted to use their first pick on SEC games to broadcast that week on the Egg Bowl because at the time they had to pick games to broadcast, the Egg Bowl was looking like a top 5 matchup. ESPN lucked into the Iron Bowl being the best game of the week, and promoted it as such.
But you know, don't let facts get in the way of your ESPN hate.
|1 week 2 days ago||Really?||
You can't expect people in media to know the two deep on every pro and college team in the country AND know the background on those players to know if they are untapped potential or just bodies.
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||I'm confident Michigan fans||
I'm confident Michigan fans could spin any news as positive Harbuagh news these days. "Mudslides in California? Good news on the Harbaugh front, since Mrs. Harbaugh hates muddy feet."
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Think part of it may have||
Think part of it may have also come when people started to turn on the people who were his sources which caused him to get defensive and weird.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It also helps identify who your leaks are||
It also helps identify who your leaks are. Tell one admin assistant that "Schiano and Addazio are rising up the board", tell another "Sean Payton is a possibility" and tell a third "Les Miles wil take the job if its offered." Real easy to find out who is leaking what to whom that way.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It is||
Along with a slew of clickbait tweets, Sam also tweeted out a 4mo. membership will get you through the coaching search and signing day. Thanks, but no thanks dude.

What about a bucket of hoes? A box perhaps?

I'd take Schiano over Addazio in a heart beat. At least Schiano has done something as a head coach.

Sam Webb is turning into a clickbait whore. It's just rumor after rumor. Who the hell is even a source for him any more? The entire program has been cleaned out. Only one left would be DeBord and I doubt that.

Get better soon Ace. The MGoCommunity is behind you.

If there was actually an agreement signed it would also allow Harbaugh to build a staff that can get out and start recruiting while he finishes off the season. That would be huge and a true win-win for all involved.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Not to be a dick, but I||
Not to be a dick, but I honestly can't think of one thing to thank him for. What about the BBQ, was that Hoke or RichRod? If it's Hoke, thanks for that because that seems like a cool tradition.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I would bet his source is||
I would bet his source is Fred Jackson since Sam has been plugged in for a while and Jackson has survived multiple coaches. Will be interesting to see how plugged in Sam is if/when Jackson is retired.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||That was my reaction to the fake report yesterday||
When that fake report came out on Twitter yesterday, my immediate reaction was FUCK THIS, and just giving up on the team and next season. I mean good lord, how could anyone -- fan or player -- possibly rally behind this guy one more time? I would be more excited about an upcoming trip to the dentist than the 2015 football season if Hoke was back.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||SO HOT RIGHT NOW||
He's kind of similar to Hoke in a way. Had one good season, and a bunch of middle of the road ones. But, success in the SEC is a lot harder to achive than success in the MAC or Mountain West. So he'd be an upgrade and the non-Harbaugh options all have some sort of flaw. Hell, even Jim has flaws which is why he's on his way out in San Fran.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||Both programs are similar||
I feel like Michigan and Nebraska are pretty similar at this point. Both are living in the past, and both are dealing with unrealistic expectations. 67-27 and four division titles should be about right at Nebraska considering the changed landscape in CFB and the resources/location they have.
Michigan on the other hand, is also living in 1988, but their unrealistic expectations are that they should be winning 10, 11 games a year without changing with the times or doing what it takes to get the job done.
And honestly, I would kill to be Pelini era Nebraska.
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||Good analysis. I agree on||
Good analysis. I agree on Funchess. There's no way a team spends a 1st or 2nd rounder on him based on potential. Doubtful they'd even spend a 3rd on that. Those picks are all expected to be contributors, not projects. And with so many good WRs out there why waste a pick on a project? Pick someone that can get the job done.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Pretty sure he'll be a So.||
If I remember right, medical redshirt/hardships come into effect once all of your elligility has been exhausted. So since he played one season already, Peppers will be a Sophomore next season. If he gets to a fifth year, he'll then be a RS SR.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Pretty sure we're not going||
Pretty sure we're not going to have 30-40 players transfer.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||He also lied||
Hoke also lied -- or spoke out of both sides of his mouth if you want to sugar coat it -- and thought we were all too stupid to notice. Doing that to anyone will piss them off. Especially people that have to write about your program every day.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I happen to love his||
I happen to love his pessimism. Or reality. Whatever you prefer. He seems to call it as it is, and openly question the coaches's stupidity. And I like that. Its refreshing. Hell, Brian does it all the time.

No. There's generally no reason for an average fan to know who the AD is.
