|1 week 1 day ago||So what? Do you know||
So what? Do you know Kentucky's team would look like this year if everyone stayed 4 years? They'd have NBA all stars coming off the bench. Anthony Davis and Julius Randle and Kidd-Gilchrist would be by starting front court wit Teague and Lamb. Arguably the best current NBA player would be a senior this year.
Good programs lose players to the draft every year. Great programs maintain excellence despite it.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's worse than 6-5, as far||
It's worse than 6-5, as far as the committee is concerned we're 5-5, Hillsdale does not count. So we basically have to go 12-6 in conferenc and make the BTT final to get to 19 wins for the selection committee and then we should get in but even that wouldn't be a sure thing.
Honestly, I dont see that happening.

SMU has a lot more talent than we do. I know people will say, "SMU?" But Brown has a lot of superb athletes on that team and Kennedy is a stud who didn't really player that much.
|1 week 1 day ago||This is least athletic team||
This is least athletic team we've has in several years. We have only one above average athlete on the team in Irvin and he's not much above average.
|1 week 1 day ago||This might sound like||
This might sound like blasphemy here, but Stoops is my Plan A, he has the track record and he's stay for 10 years. He also has an $11 Million buyout though.
|1 week 2 days ago||All I know is that the||
All I know is that the leaking of that $8 Million a year figure will haunt us if Harbaugh does not come here.
Does anyone else remember the last time Jim Harbaugh was in contract talks and fake offers were leaked by Harbaugh's camp? Yeah, me neither, but it did happen. This is getting weird.
|1 week 3 days ago||Well, I can guarantee Jim is||
Well, I can guarantee Jim is doing what every other NFL coach is doing this week, working 16 hour days ton prepare for his next game. I doubt he is calling buddies that he hasn't talked to in 10 years.
|1 week 5 days ago||This is maddening that we got||
This is maddening that we got trolled like this.
And don't tell me this isn't potentially harmful to our chances with Harbaugh, if there was in fact an offer and those numbers got leaked and Oakland or any other NFL team got wind of it you know they are on the phone this morning with SF asking for permission to make an offer to Harbaugh, I know we have a lot of money to spend, but you don't want to get into a bidding war with 3 or more NFL franchises, it's not a winning proposition unless you're Harbaugh's agent, he might get a massive deal now, something historic for NFL coaches.
|1 week 5 days ago||All of them have gotten tens||
All of them have gotten tens of thousands of extra hits and listeners this last 15 hours though. Sickening that we just got played. Harbaugh migh still come, but these clowns just played us like a fiddle.
|1 week 5 days ago||I honestly think any Jeff||
I honestly think any Jeff MOss based thread should be taken down from this site, he's trolling us hard. There are way more reliable people to source, Moss is going to be the most hated man in Ann Arbor if this is proven to BS.
Brandstadter has publicly stated he is not the source and has told no one that Harbaugh is the man.
|1 week 5 days ago||Are we really getting||
Are we really getting suckered in by Jeff Moss and Greg Hensen? Be smarter than that people, I think there was likely some good news, but there is almost no chance Moss or Hensen is going to scoop legitimate members of the media on a story this big.
And leaking the numbers is very very bad for us. Sets a baseline for MFL teams to blow away. What if Oakland comes in at 8 years $75 Million this week now after hearing our offer leaked? You have to wonder if Harbaugh's agent leaked numbers to start a bidding war, it's kind of his job to do that.
|1 week 5 days ago||Huh? Wasn't Webb the one||
Huh? Wasn't Webb the one first pushing the story that we had officially contacted Miles? So we just called him to say hello? Webb has been strange recently.
|1 week 5 days ago||The LSU writer said that||
The LSU writer said that Miles was very candid and talked about this for fifteen minutes. Miles said something about not wanting to burn Michigan. Not sure what that means, not wanting to burn us by letting it be known he said no to an offer, or not wanting to burn us because we already have our plan A?
This all is a roller coaster, just hope we end up with the right coach. Might not even be Harbaugh, but we can still end up with the next Bo.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||A nightmare, but oh my||
A nightmare, but oh my goodness, I can appreciate the insane athleticism of Zona. Whoa.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||As a basketball fan it sure||
As a basketball fan it sure would be fun to see Zona play Kentucky. So much talent and both teams play great defense too.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||We lose another non||
We lose another non conference game we are going to the NIT IMO.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||That is an NBA team we are||
That is an NBA team we are playing, and not bench players, but starters, my word.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||No one was expecting to win||
No one was expecting to win this game, still can make a run in this half.
The SMU game is a must win though.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||Just a big talent disparity,||
Just a big talent disparity, Arizona is an NBA team, only Kentucky looks better.
I'd like to see the ball in Levert's hands more.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||Happy to be in this still,||
Happy to be in this still, Zona looks like an NBA team.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||Hate being strung along. What||
Hate being strung along.
What I think has happened is Harbaugh has not said anything abnout it to us, just said talk to him after the season and he wasn;t going to think about it until then. I also believe Hackett when he says this was a 3-4 week process. So my non maize colored glasses tell me we are going through the process of trying to find someone, but if we don't get the right guy, we'll try to court Harbaugh after the NFL season is over. Who knows what will happen then.
One thing I don't believe is that Harbaugh is not an option, I take the man at his word when he says he is just trying to win games for the team he coaches and is not thinking one second about coaching somewhere else, that means he has not ruled us out or said we are likely. What I also don;t think is that we are very confident we are going to get Harbaugh, think we are really trying to find someone else right now.

I think Mora Jr is out, his DC came out and said it would shock him if he left. Mullen would be a great hire IMO, and I think he would come, his QB is leaving and he had an outstanding season, but Mississippi State is not going to be able to compete for recruits with Auburn, LSU, and Alabama year in and year out no matter who they have as coach.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure your post is||
Not sure your post is serious, but Sparty is not losing a lot off that team and most think they have a chance to take a step forward not backwards next season. They will almost certainly be a preseason top 10 team next season. As much as it pains me, Dantonio and his team are not going away. Hear it from my Sparty coworkers, they are returning most of that team even if Waynes and Calhoun go pro.
We're not going to be able to sit back and wait for other teams to come back to the pack, we need to get in the game and bring it up to their level and beyond. Really is a bad year for us to play them at home because they will be heavy favorites.

Brilliant marketing strategy...if you're trying to be hated. WTF???

Can anyone verify that Utah's Kylke Whittingham is in Ann Arbor taling to U of M right now?

This is getting embarrassing now.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The handling of Rich Rod's||
The handling of Rich Rod's tenure and firing most definitely down graded the job. This stuff is public now, he was undermined when he got here and although he earned his firing IMO, I thought there was a great deal of piling on by UM guys after he left, especially when Hoke did well in 2011, it seemed noone involved in Michigan Football passed up an opportunity to trash Rich Rod that year.
Urban being successful at Ohio State whould make the Michigan job more appealing, not less. OSU is a national power, MSU is working towards that and pretty close, Penn State will be back to being a top 20 team. The B1G East will be one of the toughest divisions in college football, that's not a bad thing, that;s a good thing that should attract the best coaches.
The competition is a positive, the treatment of Rich Rod or even the way that treatment is perceived nationally is a big negative. Coaches want a unitifed administration and a stable athletic department, we don't have that right now.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Actually from what I've read||
Actually from what I've read Sparty seems thrilled with this. Makes LJ Scott sticking with them more likely and he was always their #1 guy. So they are just gloating that we lost a recruit. Dumb.

Is this a sign?
