Silver lining for Delance at Texas is he'll probably end up playing for Tom Herman in 2017.

Seems like Leavitt would be best to go coach Indiana high school football in Hickory with that on his record...small town, but they've had other success rehabing coaches with anger problems. Maybe he wins the state championship!

Is that like Tobias Funke was a hybrid analyst/therapist? You should see his business cards.

I have to say thanks to all of the other cereals that recruited me at my breakfast table over the years - I'm truly blessed with so many great choices and cereal mascots. However, I'm announcing my top 5 cereals, in no order:
|1 year 33 weeks ago||"3 sticking out"||
He reported what amounts to his top 3 at the moment as UGA, FSU and Bama.
Given how long Michigan has been recruiting him, it would seem that is not a promising sign at this point.

Yeah, stop letting the facts get in the way of a good story!!

Except that Stanford had Andrew Luck. I'm all for believing that Harbaugh won with less talented Stanford teams, but Luck kinda helped with that.

M-Dog is obviously correct. That the Fab 5 made it to the final and were competitive in the first half was unbelievable - and it was quite a ride.
Compared to where the team was the year before made it that much more stunning.

Good lord, Bill Frieder was a mediocre coach at best...he could recruit, to be sure, but HE was the Ron Zook OR Will Muschamp (whichever you prefer) of Michigan. In my opinion, the '89 team had no shot of winning the NC with Frieder, and got lucky that he bailed and Fisher was able to coach the team (whatever your opinion of Fisher in the long run).
The team under Frieder was a major underachiever - 12-6 in the Big Ten in spite of the top 6 guys all having NBA talent (Rice, Vaught, Robinson, Mills, Higgins, Hughes)! Frieder had an incredibly short bench (refused to practically let Calip on the court), got soundly beaten by Illinois in the final regular season game in Ann Arbor, got beaten by Alaska Anchorage(!), etc. Frieder was too laid back and the teams were too undisciplined to win. At least with respect to the '89 National Championship, we got lucky that he bailed when he did.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Doesn't need to be the case||
Not sure why that's necessarily the case. I'm sure they record the whole practice so no issue with the coaches reviewing film of the portion of a practice they couldn't catch in person. If they don't it makes no sense these days.

The view of insiders is that it is the late start that the staff got on 2016 that is causing the commitment drought but the ball will start rolling in the near future. Take it FWIW.

Over at 247, Wiltfong expressed the opinion that Peters is arguably a better prospect than Costello, so I wouldn't be too bummed other than the potentially missed opportunity to have a big time CA prospect pushing UM for a year to other CA recruits.

Blake Bars at 6'5" 281 lbs - not going to see the field at OG at that size.

Get them to sign on the line which is dotted!

I'm all for these threads, even if duplicative (within reason) - if it helps a kid to get attention he otherwise wouldn't have gotten (which is certainly possible), go for it. No shame in that.

I believe it's already reported he has no interest.

I'm a bit concerned that the number of high level power 5 commits and very in demand 5 star types are too high relative to their likelihood of choosing Michigan in 3 weeks or so - would like to see more Norfleet and Christian types (mid/lower level power 5 commits or offers) getting attention. 2016 will undoubtedly be a great class, but we don't want a giant hole where 2015 was.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Brian Kelly||
Now if we could only get the Raiders and Jets to interview Brian Kelly, we'd really be in business...
|2 years 6 weeks ago||From "Coach Visit Tracker" on NFL.com||
from today (Jan. 5):
..."Rapoport reported that other potential candidates for the [Niners] coaching job include Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and UCLA head coach Jim Mora. McDaniels interviewed with the Niners on Saturday."

Russel Wilson did it from NC St. To Wisconsin
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Redshirt||
Best thing that could happen to Morris in the long term is for Hogan to come and start all next year and allow Shane to redshirt since he wasn't able to at the beginning. Has to use the year to work hard with Harbaugh.
2016 would look like ths:
Morris (RS Jr.)

That is all.

hear it directly from some of the recruits:
|2 years 8 weeks ago||@sleeper||
if Harbaugh does anything close to that in 4 years at Michigan, given his success in SF, he'll have his pick of NFL jobs IF HE WANTS THEM (he of course may not at that point).
That's why I think he'll take the job - NFL will always be there, but the Michigan job may never be open again at the right time for Harbaugh.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Without access to the||
Without access to the contract, I can't know for sure (and this in no way constitutes legal advice and no one should rely on it) but there would seem to be no reason that he couldn't sign a contract that was contingent on the termination of his 49ers contract in accordance with its terms.
In the contract is undoubtedly a representation that the contract doesn't conflict with any agreement to which Harbaugh is a party (no such thing as "illegal" in conflicting contracts - the question is whether it constitutes a breach of an existing contract) - if it doesn't kick in until the other one goes away, shouldn't be an issue.
Did they do this? No idea.
