I was at first taken aback by this and my first thought was that the kid was flat-out lying for the nebraska coaches to negatively recruit against michigan, who are obviously coming for their recruits.
But the more I settled down and thought about it, im guessing mattison did say something that was taken out of context and it actually is a solid recruiting approach for coaches to remind recruits how great an educational opportunity michigan is as compared to, say, nebraska, which is much less hard to get into for the non-athlete. A simple fact that may have not been taken the right way.
In any case, for those saying harbaugh needs to publicly get out in front of this, i disagree. It is going to blow over as people realize that this was just an overreaction by the neal family to a fact, and if anything it will spur the conversation of the michigan advantage over schools like nebraska, msu, osu, etc. Also, the coaches will address the issue with other players they are recruiting (such as snyder) and hopefully a few of them will come to mattison's defense. Not that its necessary.

Yeah he didnt tweet that..at least not the part about coming in on a sleigh.

Urban also had the tire fire of all tire fires at PSU in 2012 to poach some 4-5 stars who just wanted to GTFO of Happy Valley. Noah Spence comes to mind, but there were others. Perfect situation for him as PSU to OSU is a pretty easy to sell in that situation.

Also 247 lists Pickard as a WDE and Neal as a SDE. Maybe Pickard's the only one of those we are actively recruiting.

If that quote is accurate from Pickard's side, it has to be that he is misunderstanding something or misquoting the coaches. We, in fact, have offered (or re-confirmed offers) other DE recruits. Shelton Johnson, KLS and Reuben Jones come to mind off the top of my head.

We are apparently also bringing in an Eagles personnel guy named Joe Hastings, who was also an NFL wide receiver, according to Adam Caplan's twitter.

Not a fair argument as absolutely no one was arguing for wade/bosh at the time over darko. The choice was darko or carmelo.

Nothing against Morris personally because we have no idea if he would, but would we really want someone who wanted to transfer because of the fear of competition? Unless, Hogan was promised the starting job, but I doubt that would ever happen.

Word is Alize Jones is going to flip to Notre Dame, hence their continued interest in Clark.

Maybe Baxter has a little side job grooming the young paduan in the intracacies of the TE position, all under the watchful eye of his proud papa. In exchange, Jay helps coaches break down film. Point is, there is so much experience on this staff, there is room to let a young coach who has paid his dues (NFL QC coaches are not glamorous) get some real coaching experience.

Wait, so UM-OSU is a symbiotic relationship or OSU does not need UM to be great?

Whatever, we're all bandwagon Piston fans in some capacity but it feels fun to cheer for them again. If you are one of the handful of fans who've been on the bus this whole time eagerly watching every game for the past 7 years, congratulations. Now move your ass over a bit because me and a whole lot of other fans are jumping back on. Deal with it.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||This makes a lot of sense as||
This makes a lot of sense as I was under the impression that the PGC and RGC would have to be Co-OC's. But it looks like Drevno may be the OC (with only him and Harbaugh calling plays on Saturday) with someone like Fisch as PGC and Wheatly as RGC (so he has a more prestigious title than in Buffalo). It could play out like this:
1. Harbaugh - HC/QB
2. Drevno - OC/OL
3. Wheatley - RGC/RB
4. Fisch - PGC (not sure what position group he would coach, maybe TE's but doesn't Baxter have a better track record there?)
5. Daugherty - WR/Associate Head Coach
6. Baxter - STC/TE (TE may go to Fisch, but don't think he's had specific experience coaching TE's, but I guess as an offensive coordinator, you should know all positions. On that same note, maybe Fisch takes OT and Drevno takes interior line, or vice versa, and Baxter gets TE)
7. Durkin - DC/ILB
8. Mattison - DT/Associate Head Coach
9. Jackson - DB
10. Manning - OLB/DE
I kind of love guessing at this as it's like a puzzle, but at the same time, can't wait for it to be over and finalized so we can focus on what's really important....recruiting...I mean, winning.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe, but then it makes the||
Maybe, but then it makes the Dougherty hire (if it is actually happening) a bit confusing. As someone mentioned in the other thread, Harbaugh will have his hands on all facets of the offense and will definitely be coaching our QB's (and the QB coach if we bring one in), but it may help to have a separate person who can focus more just on the QB's all practice. Just based on the information out there, this was my best guess.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Thoughts||
Based on the latest few threads, I could see our assistants shaping up like:
1. Drevno - Co-OC (Running Game Coordinator)/OL
2. Dougherty - Co-OC (Passing Game Coordinator)/QB
3. Wheatley - RB
4. Morton - WR
5. Baxter - ST Coordinator/TE
6. Durkin - DC/ILB
7. Mattison - DT
8. Manning - DE/OLB
9. Jackson - DB

Unfortunately that's not Derrick Green's twitter.

Don't remember him saying anything about "being an alumni" and, if he didn't, then it's not close.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||If we've learned one thing||
If we've learned one thing from the past day, it's that interviewing for higher-esteemed jobs can help you leverage more of what you want in your current job. He definitely could be interviewing for NFL jobs to get more out of UCLA (whether it's money, facilities, etc.).
Apart from that, I wouldn't put too much into this, I think the Jets job is Marrone's to lose and they're waiting to hire a GM who will match his personality and continuing to interview candidates in the meantime. I'd be more worried if I were a UCLA fan if the 49ers interviewed him.

After some very basic googling of "Daniel Jonathan Durkin" this appears to be him as this person has lived in Menlo Park, CA and Gainesville and is 36 years old. I'm not going to do too much more speculating because of yesterday's craziness.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||There's also a "Daniel||
There's also a "Daniel Jonathan Durkin" in the MCommunity. No idea what D.J.'s real name is though.
Edit: After further sleuthing, I didn't see a Jim Harbaugh or James Harbaugh in the MCommunity...everyone panic!!!

This man does not look stressed about who his s&c coach is going to be or if he's going to land Iman Marshall. I need to take a page out of his book. In JH I trust.

I think theres been some peeps about Greg Jackson from the 49ers for secondary but not much more than that.

Why the low confidence in retaining Manning? Seems like someone we should retain especially with his recruiting prowess.

Durkin would certainly help close the gap in the South/Florida. Not sure if he recruits Texas and Louisiana.

Haven't seen many people bring up Ty Wheatley Jr.
Ace, happy to see this column back to the happy side! I'd assume you think getting JH increases our chances exponentially and if his dad joins the staff, he's a lock? Would he be recruited as a DE if Clark comes back into the fold?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Right, but his real argument||
Right, but his real argument is that either JH is going to disappoint us in the near term by turning down the contract, which duh, or that he's going to disappoint us by staying for 6 years and then being pulled back to the NFL. The analogy he uses is Pete Carroll who built a dynasty at USC before returning to the NFL. So, yeah...not really sure what his point is as I think all of us would be okay with him staying for 6 years, building a dynasty and moving on, if that's really his desire. Dumb article.
