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'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.

Now if we could only get the Raiders and Jets to interview Brian Kelly, we'd really be in business...
|3 weeks 2 days 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."

|3 weeks 6 days 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.)

|5 weeks 2 days 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.
|5 weeks 2 days 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.

|6 weeks 5 days ago||You would all be reacting||
You would all be reacting differently to this thread if it had been entitled "highly experienced coach at NFL factory St. Thomas Aquinas High of Florida heavily recommends Wisconsin over Michigan to its high level recruits."
That it is Chris Carter who is the source of that doesn't make it any better or less concerning, in my view. In fact, to me it makes it worse - I actually believe he knows what he's talking about.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Carter wasn't saying it||
Carter wasn't saying it couldn't be turned around, but he was saying that:
1. 15-19 kids don't care about the "tradition" of schools for the most part
2. Even the right coach would need a few years to turn things around completely because in the St. Thomas Aquinas's staff view at least we don't have a team of NFL sized type people (obviously there are exceptions like Funchess, etc.) on the whole, while the OSU/Wiscy/Florida/USC types do already.
You can choose to dismiss these views if you wish. I find them a bit disconcerting.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I listened to the segment||
I listened to the segment this morning, and I thought it was very concerning not because of the comments of Mike & Mike, but because of what Chris Carter had to say - now, I'm aware of his OSU background of course, but he essentially said that he coaches at St. Thomas Aquinas High in Florida and was comparing their views regarding sending their kids to Wisconsin vs. sending them to Michigan.
[here's a link to an article on the schools football products - a factory]
Basically, he said they think Wiscy is a great program and they like to send kids there because of the academics and how they get them ready for the NFL, but that Michigan while great academically hasn't been doing a good job essentially (though he didn't say it directly) in the S&C program - thus he was shocked at how "tiny" the team as a whole looked in comparison to OSU when he was on the field at the game.
I think given his position as a coach there this is definitely thread worthy and that downvoting for something you don't agree with or like is silly. Not good that a HS program like that has a dim view of Michigan at the moment.

I still thin Pat Shurmur should be a candidate - way better than Schiano, Addazio, et al.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I think the ultimate question||
I think the ultimate question to answer at the outset is:
Aussuming he wants to stay in the NFL, Would Harbaugh allow Michigan to twist in the wind to use the job to leverage the 49ers to deal him where he wants to go, or would he not place his own interests first and tell M upfront that he isn't interested so they can move on? The answer to that question would tell you where we really are.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Shawn Hunwick||
I think the most apt comparison is Shawn Hunwick (yes, I wish he wasn't white so it didn't seem like I picked it because of that) - both highly skilled and able to display it on the college level. Neither could (likely in Spike's case - would love if he proved me wrong) translate that at the pro level when the size and athleticism gets out of hand for everyone on the court/ice, but that doesn't mean he can't be a great college player. I think the grit thing is wildly unfair to Spike.
Now Novak - he was grit.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Todd Graham and Pat Schurmur||
My choice I think (assuming no Harbaugh and no Miles) would be Todd Graham - may have been a bit of a tool for how his Pitt departure was handled, but he ticks all the boxes: successful head coach in multiple jobs, midwest experience, recruiting, etc.
Obviously this isn't on the table, but I'm a bit surprised that Pat Schurmur hasn't gotten any play for any of these college HC jobs, including Michigan. He grew up in Michigan, went to MSU, coached for MSU for a long time so has plenty of college experience, is a West Coast Offense guy originally so he'd be a personnel fit, coaches under Chip Kelly now as Eagles OC so he has seen how Chip takes advantage of defenses and can work some of that in along with tempo if he wants. His Brown stint was short enough that there's no reason to really hold that against him. Could do a lot worse in my opinion

|17 weeks 1 day ago||My guess/take||
FWIW, my best guess as to why Hoke said what he said at the presser was that Brandon told him they were going to put out a statement that said they didn't know he had taken a blow to the head but there was no diagnosis at the time of a concussion - they'd take the blame for not following the proceedure properly and say they'd get it fixed, but no real harm done. Deflect the questions to the statement to come, don't admit anything, and CYA accomplished.
However, it would seem that the Drs. didn't cooperate - they refused to sign off on a release that said Morris didn't have a concussion (thus the dissembling "probable, mild concussion" - I can hear the argument now with Brandon saying "is there ever a way to guarantee that there was a concussion?!" and when the Docs have to say of course not, it's a diagnosis but no guarantee, he jams the word "probable" in there). So when the release finally comes out, Hoke looks like an idiot (now proven to be either that or a liar or both) because they couldn't coerce the medical staff into cooperating with the probable, mild coverup.

We have reached rock bottom...and are starting to dig.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Assuming no Harbaugh (either)||
Should look at Mike Munchak - HOF O Lineman, Penn State alum (with Franklin there not likely to have his alma matter job opening up any time soon), NFL head coaching experience, OL coach
I'd also be interested in Jeff Fisher if he gets fired by St.L., but that seems unlikely.
I'd try to keep Mattison around to help adjusting to the recruiting/college game, though he may refuse if Hoke is fired.

I would guess Lewis - he's been making noises about other programs and I would imagine he didn't leave Florida behind to go to another disaster area.
Unfortunately hard to believe KLS would choose us now.
All bets are off (or back on?) if we manage to land a Harbaugh.

Wow. Great get by the staff, probably most important to get after KLS given WR recruiting lately.

Demetrius only looked good because (a) michigan was loaded with future NFL players, including yours truly, and (b) his competition was Michael Taylor, who was really a wishbone QB. Demetrius was...mediocre.
51% completion percentage and basically as many INTs as TDs.
