Lloyd wanted RR out and has somebody snitch to Rosenberg
Rosenberg hopes to uncover Watergate 2, but instead gets 15 extra minutes of stretching
Michigan fans turn on Rosenberg, who then moves on to SI
RR is fired and Lloyd's boy Hoke is hired
Hoke doesn't win games and is fired
Habaugh (with the expressed endorsement of Lloyd and Gary and Moeller) is hired and loved
Harbaugh tries to hook up Rosenberg, since the Michigan fan base hates him, but Rosenberg was just a stooge of Lloyd

This is stupid. Basically you need to take English, Math, Social Studies, and Science for all 4 years of High School (I can't believe you can graduate without this).
4 English + 3 Math + 3 Social Science + 3 Natural Science = 13
Additional (need 4):
1 Math + 1 Social Science + 1 Natural Science = 3. So, you need 1 extra credit (Foreign Language, Fine Art, Computer Science, Other Academic). How hard is this?

This sounds like BS.

Also, if everybody does it, then why haven't we heard of this before with other teams? Bellichek is a cheater and should be banned next season (just like Sean Peyton).

I don't think it's interesting that Harbaugh is going after committed players, I think it's normal/ expected, especially when the kid is committed to a school with a new coaching staff.

|5 days 15 hours ago||No,||
because you have to believe that we will have kids transfer after Spring Ball (for the usual reasons of not enough percieved playing time, to Harbaugh's system is not for me, to the workouts are too hard...). So, you want bodies now and will still get more then you think for 2016.

|1 week 3 days ago||I think it's the size/ strength||

|1 week 3 days ago||Of course not,||
nothing is a given. There are plenty of really smart dads who raise dumb sons and dumb dads that raise really smart sons (to keep the analogy simple).
However, if James is interested in coaching he has the opportunity (that 99.9% of other kids interested in coaching) don't have, which is many family members in the profession. Assuming James puts in the time and work to learn coaching, he should be more advanced than anybody else, simply because he has access to his family.
As for girls of coaches, my guess is that the profession clearly has little to no female coaches, so it doesn't matter if you are a daughter or a random femail football coaching genius. Unfortunately, you are screwed.

Wheatley is waiting on what happens with Marrone and his staff. If he can get a promotion, he'll stay in the NFL, but if not, then he'll come to Michigan.

but what we do know is that Bosch did not reveal the stipulations and he seemed very unhappy (e.g. considered transferring) when he was moved from starter to "mop-up duty" time.

I won't. I read the rumor and then the poster said that Woodson wanted to play one last year and then would consider coaching at Michigan.
I wanted to see if there was any other report of this.
The main reason I don't blieve it is because apparentely, his wine business is doing really well and I would think that he wouldn't want to spend all of his time coaching.

I won't watch. I'm offended.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not so sure,||
I got the impresion that Marrone left because he wanted more money on the free market and the Woody Johnson is cheap.
The problem is that for major teams (e.g. Eagles, Jets, Bears) people will come to the games and buy crap, because tailgating is fun, they want their kids to enjoy, get away from wives, whatever. Those teams don't need to win to make money and the owner can make a few more bucks with paying the coach less and letting high priced free agents go elsewhere.

Henry averaged 7.3 per rush and Yeldon 4.7. Both are future NFL backs. Yeldon was hurt, it appeared, but why weren't they feeding these 2 the ball and then run the occasional PA pass to Cooper (the best WR in the nation)?

The issue with Wheatley is that he's too qualified to be a RB coach, but not qualified enough to be an OC. I guess something like RB coach and running game coordinator works, but I don't know if outsiders would view it as BS for when he wants to be an actual OC.

Is it worth not receiving and additional $4M/ year just to have Nike over Adidas? The Adidas contract is great for Michigan and we only have 1 or 2 alternative uniforms a year, which has to be on the low end.
Unfortunately, if we give up $4M a year, the Athletic Department will have to make up the shortfall (increased ticket prices, increased concessions, more student fees...) None of that is desirable for a swoosh symbol.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Not at all,||
and I'm not a poster there, but there are a couple of reliable posters who had most to all of the details before Henson (I'm not a paid subscriber, so I don't know what Rivals/ Scout insiders said).

the info that users post on the Edge. That's about it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Are season tickets easy to get?||
As long as you donate?
So if say we hired Schiano, and people gave up their seats, but then we hired Harbaugh in 2 years, and the people that gave up seats wanted them back, would that be easy? Just curious as to how that works.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Of course everybody is positive on Twitter,||
the answer will be when practices start and depth charts are released.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||It's cool.||
My vote is to keep it.

It's not a big deal and Hart was what, 19?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Haha. I agree with||
Being 10 down at the half and we would likely win. Similarly, being up 10 or less in the 4th and there was a 50% chance we lose.

|4 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks.||
Just wondering if you post on other boards. I have seen 3-5 different versions that all basically match up with your post. Everybody can't be wrong, right!
Anyway, I think the 49ers would make sure the tampering rules are strictly enforced. If Oakland comes in, they will demand some compensation/ players, because why not? I think if Harbaugh accepts the Michigan offer, then SF will allow that free and clear, but would not allow him to go to another NFL team for free.
And really, is Harbaugh worth $10+ million/ year + full control + draft picks to Oakland, when they can get a pretty decent coach for $3-5M and have a GM fully concentrate on contract negotiations and roster adds?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Is that from a poster||
or a moderator or a reporter?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I have seen both rumors, FWIW||
1) Michigan will pay $2.5M to Harbaugh as part of the $5M that SF owes him and SF will pay nothing to Harbaugh.
2) SF will pay the full $5M to Harbaugh and "fire" him as long as he doesn't coach in the NFL next year. (so SF will take the $5M hit).
Both of these rumors were from the same site, but different posters. My guess is that it's still up for negotiation, but the 49ers would look bad accepting money from a University and don't want the money and Michigan will fold the $2.5M into the actual ~6-8 year Harbaugh contract.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||No offense, OP||
But there is a reason your brothers are IU and not UM grads.

That Ronnie Lott and joe Montana think JH is a solid coach. That's important.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I'd add a 4th threat||

However, the social media team @ Michigan probably has no clue as to what Hackett is thinking.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I don't think so.||
The 49ers owe Harbaugh for next year unless he's traded (which he can veto) or he violates a contractual term. There is usually no way around this for employment contracts (it's why Hoke and Brandon get their full salaries).

I have read this a lot, but why? Isn't Harbaugh under contract for next year as well? Is his buyout reduced if he quits after the season? Surely, Michigan can't "tamper" with an NFL coach.

|5 weeks 3 days ago||You can criticize Schiano for many reasons,||
but he's not a job hopper (in fact he turned down Michigan to stay at Rutgers). I think the guy is a good coach, who tried and failed miserably in the NFL and should know to stick o college. He could do decently well at Pitt (7-10 win seasons regularly) and everybody would be happy.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||This guy||

The decision is ultimately only Harbaugh's to make. If he wants to come to Michigan he will. The Dolphins, raiders, jets are all irrelevant.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Is that for athletes||
or all potential students?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I don't take it as positive,||
but that Harbaugh honestly does not know what he is going to do. I think he's leaning towards Michigan one day and the NFL the next, because it's a very hard choice for him. I only hope that he makes a decision ASAP, so Michigan can move forward.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Alvarez?||
Is Barry Alvarez such a bad AD that good coaches run away from him?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||It's all semantics.||
My guess is that Michigan reached out (through the search firm, or maybe DeBord, who cares) to Cutcliffe as a potential candidate and he said he wasn't interested in moving forward. Period.
That means Cutcliffe was never offered, but did not want the job anyway. Both parties are right and wrong.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Not necessarily||
Michigan could have asked Cutcliffe if he was interested in moving forward and he could halve just said no, I want to retire at Duke.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I agree 100%||
All have a ton of positives and very few negatives.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||If you have time to listen to podcasts||
Give it a shot!
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know,||
but after watching the conference championships last weekend, there are a lot of good WRs in college. Also, I don't know if Shane is going to give Funchess that much upside, so going pro, if he can go in the top 4 rounds is a good bet for the kid.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Good theory,||
It explains why Jay is involved in the 1st place and also explains Adnan's alibi.
What I don't understand is that if Adnan knew of the library alibi before the trial (even if his lawyer didn't), why didn't he make her bring that point up? That's the best proof he has.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Only finished Episode 6||
but have no clue. Adnan seems so pesonable that it's hard to believe he could have done it. I don't know if we'll ever know, but are supposed to make up our own minds.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||So Bacon gets more publicity,||
while saying nothing. Par for the course.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Probably not||
I thought kid jerseys were always a bit different.

my friend's grandma's housekeeper also cleans Jim's house and overheard...
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Vegas is just balancing the books||
they don't care what happens, because their profit is the vig, not that action. The line moves when the betting is unbalanced and the casino is at risk of losing a lot of money.
My guess is that last week, @ 6-1, with the media being overly positive on Harbaugh, a lot of people threw money for Habaugh to M, moving the odds to 2-1. Then Vegas shut it down, calculated their risk and at the same time, Sunday's news was negative for Harbaugh to Michigan and when they opened, a lot of people thought 2-1 was easy, since Harbaugh was not coming to M and the line moved up again.
Just supply and demand.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||No.||
He's making up/ summarizing others content. No respect.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Flip flopper||
Lucky nobody actually judges Sam by how many times he flip flops or he might be unemployed.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Yes. Please||
Especially when they say that there is a 10-20% chance for Gruden.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Really?||
This guy should have been fired the minute after coke gate.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Especially because||
Brandon cleaned house after he took over too, which was seen as a good thing because of stretch gate
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Funchess suffered from the||
Funchess suffered from the dropsies and didn't appear to give 100%, but he should go to the NFL if he's a 2nd rounder or higher. Why take the risk?

2. Big Game Bob.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I believe Brian||
has written that Harbaugh to Michigan (or the college ranks) is unlikely, but Harbaugh is interested in coaching Michigan.
I also agree that he should come to AA, fix our program and then try the NFL again in 5 years.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Boom! Figured it out!||
Jed York is the CEO of the 49ers because his unlce & godfather is Eddie DeBartolo Jr (the co-Owner). He's a ND grad, but hasn't really worked in anything outside of being groomed to be the 49ers president.
The co-Owner of the team is Gideon Yu, who was (among other impressive things) the CFO at Youtube. Youtube is owned by Google, which was co-founded by our boy, Larry Page. Hackett has to know Page. Therefore:
Hackett -> Page -> Yu -> Harbaugh. All Michigan business connections. Book it.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||No,||
Hiring the football coach is awesome, but an AD has to be responsible for all sports, the student experience and getting donations from alumni.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Sam's report makes sense||
and is consistent with Brian's reports (that Harbaugh is interested, but likely to remain in the NFL).
Also, Sam is one of the few people that we know is connected to the program, unlike Henson or the DSR. Here is my theory:
Harbaugh loves Michigan, but is drawn to the NFL, because his brother and Pete Caroll both have rings, while he doesn't. Also, the NFL is an easier job (no recruiting, less travel, no stupid speaking engagements...) that pays (slightly) more and allows Harbaugh to be with his family more.
I also think (this is not confirmed) that NFL coaches think of college coaches are the guys who couldn't hack it in the "big league". This is historically true, and combined with all the other facts shows that Harbaugh is unlikely to come home.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I don't think so.||
It's to prevent poaching of recruits by current staff members. Seems like standard procedure to me.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||It was blocked last week||
Before hike was fired. (Don't ask me how I know).
|7 weeks 3 days ago||We'll||
Trade the 49ers our i drafter picks and Funchess for Harbaugh!
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Doesn't really matter,||
as both are paid their remaining contractual compensation, which begs the question why is that?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||This is why you shouldn't pay for info.||
Why would Gary Patterson say he's interested, even if UM promised him the moon? His team is almost in the final 4 to play for a NC. Even if he hated TCU and loved Michigan, why would he indicate he wanted to leave?
It's like putting out a story that Urban Meyer is not interested. WOW!!!
|7 weeks 3 days ago||It's all at least partly her fault||
as she was President at the time of the huge decline in football at Michigan. It could be bad luck or bad judgement. I mean at the time, Brandon was supposed to (and did) lead huge fundraising efforts and RR has proved that he's an excellent coach.
I think it's just ba luck as opposed to incompetence.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Schiano and Shaw||
both fulfill all of the critera you highlighted. I'd be good with Schiano if he has learned from his mistakes at Tampa Bay. I don't think Michigan fans realize how awful Rutgers was before he was their coach. He recruited decently, but really has to be a good coach.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||It's not fair to||
compare past hires to Hackett, since Hackett is new and an outsider.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Did Mike DeBord||
participate in the prior coaching searches? Just wondering if he's experienced in that.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||NEGBOMB||
Before the delete!
|7 weeks 4 days ago||He gone!||
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Makes Gregg Henson||
seem like an investigative journalist. LOL.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Your theory is wrong.||
Name a coach that would turn down the Michigan job, but would say take the OSU job, if it were open tomorrow (say Urban retired again)?
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I think Football Scoop is credible,||
at least as credible as rumors can be.
Seems they had the Bob Diaco scoop (along with Brett Murphy)
Were early (not sure if they "broke") on the Nuss Hire
Were incorrect about Hackett hiring a new AD before the OSU game, although it seems like Hackett has changed his mind on the temporary nature of the Michigan AD job
|7 weeks 4 days ago||The main positive, IMO||
"Multiple sources we spoke with feel Michigan will ultimately wind up going “outside the family” for their next head coach."
