Even though this generated a fair amount of buzz already in one thread (as a comment) as well as on Twitter, if you didn't see that thread and don't have Twitter, here it is.
That being said, I work in Belleville - a mere 10 minute drive separates my office and Willow Run and he'll possibly be arriving around the time I plan on leaving the office tomorrow. I might have to be distracted and watch planes land for a bit, eh?

“Jimmy will tell you I’m going to beat you and then you know what he does, he goes out and beats you. That’s who Jim Harbaugh is. He’s going to tell you he’s going to beat you and then he’ll beat you.”
This is the sort of thing that makes me look forward to a string of awkward exchanges between him and other coaches in the conference, as well as some moments that make people on the weekly conference call want to cringe - it will be beautiful somehow.

One of the funnier tweets regarding this so far, in my opinion...
|7 hours 16 min ago||Interesting Stuff...||
Willingham might have been the last coach of relatively recent note to lead Stanford to a winning record overall as well as in the conference - the seasons were up and down and the bowl record was something like 1-3, as I recall. Teevens and Harris were both atrocious, but then they land Harbaugh and he might be the only coach there in a long time under whom Stanford got better every year he was there. Definitely hard to deny the program David Shaw took over was in excellent shape.

Where does the Harbaugh family settle in/around Ann Arbor?
I know we're happy, but let's not be THIS happy, folks. This sort of rumination crosses a lot of uncomfortable lines.
OT: Lions Better Off Losing
This one may not get a lot of traction because, as others have explained, you don't want to lose the potential for the bye.
|9 hours 22 min ago||The One We Need...||
The one hallmark of a Harbaugh coached team that is indeed extant and something we would do well to experience at the moment is development leading to improvement. I dare say that the rest of the hallmarks sort of extend out from that particular core trademark. If we get the one thing, I am pretty sure we get to experience the others.
|10 hours 28 min ago||Well, That's Interesting...||
Lacy not only dragged the pile but a substantial portion of Wayne County for the final 15 yards of that run, so that's not exactly how you want to start.
I would love for the Lions to win at Lambeau - it will be the first time since I was 13 years old if it happened, but this first drive is not giving me a lot of initial hope. Lacy, Starks....yikes.

Hopefully, I took out the one you were referencing.
In general, I am hoping that the line for official visits suddenly has this sort of feel...

Harbaugh Rumor re: Illinois Hoops Game
This has been the subject of or been mentioned in a few threads in the last 12-18 hours or so.
|14 hours 42 min ago||To Add...||
CBS Sports is now out there saying that even though Harbaugh has supposedly told friends he is going back to Ann Arbor, the Radiers would still like to approach him on Monday. Add that to the Webb tweet about the plane being all set to take Jim and his wife back to Ann Arbor, and all I can say is that I hope the Raiders are talking to the gate attendant wondering if it is too late to get loaded into the luggage compartment.
|14 hours 58 min ago||Harbaugh To Kolesar...||
I was still in elementary school but I can remember watching the 1985 OSU game on television - Harbaugh-to-Kolesar all day was a beautiful thing then and it doesn't seem to lose its luster in the highlight reels now either. Going to have to go back and watch some of these games later.
Great piece from MVictors though - thanks for sharing it.
|15 hours 43 min ago||There Was A Thread...||
There was a thread last night, this is true, but the volume of Harbaugh right now is such that if I were to miss the odd duplicate it might not necessarily be a bad thing, and indeed, it does give people who missed the first one - which was on the front page for what seemed like mere minutes once the first flood of threads arrived - a chance to get their banging in.
|17 hours 59 min ago||Coffee Is For Closers...||
Actually, here's the "coffee is for closers" scene, because I can sort of see the various endings of Brandon's personnel being similar to this too:
|18 hours 3 min ago||That Thread...||
Yeah, that thread first appeared late Thursday over here, and I can't remember who the source was on it, but it was followed up and it was pretty clear by Friday morning that Michigan was already out there and setting up to have the formal discussion and - as it seems to have unfolded - finalize various details ahead of an actual signing. If other outlets are getting scooped by ESPN like this, either they are vulnerable organization somewhere or they really are this beholden to the NFL.
|18 hours 35 min ago||All I Can Say Is...||
All I can say is that I don't feel a bit sorry for the mods at Eleven Warriors. I mean, this place has moments where I want to tear my hair out and go on some sort of virtual purge, but modding that site has to be like sentry duty at an ammo dump - one wrong shot and the place literally gets launched into a low orbit.

I vote that we show them some respect and call them exactly what they apparently wish to be called - here, I looked it up:

|18 hours 55 min ago||I Can See It...||
Somewhere in Bristol, Connecticut at a very large office complex that houses a certain sports network, I am sure that a programming director is trying to convince his bosses that they should cover "something significant" at the Michigan-Illinois game on Tuesday, and their reply is likely along the lines of "Why, are the 1989 squads for each team going to play some pick-up hoops at halftime or something?"
|18 hours 59 min ago||About Phil...||
In all this good news, I think many of us who tune into the show forgot about Phil. One of these days, I think someone should try to find out where he lives and check up on him now that all this has happened - for his own safety at this point. The conflicting thoughts of "we will never, ever have nice things" and "we just got a very nice thing" must be wreaking havoc with his mind right now.
|19 hours 5 min ago||The Whole Time...||
On many levels, that was a refreshing read and kudos to him for going face first into a nice, full plate of crow. I am sure the three people that he hasn't blocked as a result of being challenged for the quality of his reporting on Twitter will be impressed as well when they finally wake up and face the morning in Kirkutsk, Siberia.
|19 hours 10 min ago||A Book...||
There should be a book about this really, in my opinion, and one thing that would make it pretty cool to read is not only all the competing angles up to even just a few days ago, but also the compressed timeline (about 4 weeks). I would definitely give it read if Bacon decided to write about it.
|1 day 2 hours ago||To Be Fair...||
To be fair, of course, it does feel a bit as if Hackett went out on a trek, found the Sankara stones - which happened to be Harbaugh-shaped - and brought them back to the fanbase so that life may be injected into the place once again. It sets up to be a win for everyone in that respect and if he is Indiana Jones, I would think it is an apt analogy in that regard.
|1 day 2 hours ago||In Addition...||
In addition to everything else that seems to be going on at the moment, suddenly attracting the nation's #1 QB recruit by virtue of Harbaugh coming to Ann Arbor (back to Ann Arbor, mind you) would probably start a trend that would leave much of the board - to paraphrase my lovely wife - "all out of evens". I love the idea.
|1 day 3 hours ago||What We Need...||
During endless renditions of "The Victors", what we need to do is seal Tim Kawakami inside the bass drum and then tell the percussion section to just have at it and live it up as they play. A few hours later, we can get him out of the drum and he will likely be functionally deaf but wiser for the experience. I personally would tell people that I saw nothing.

|1 day 5 hours ago||Going Cheap...||
Going cheap because I have to make lunch for guests tomorrow and I really don't need to be too out of sorts between Big Ten success in bowls and Harbaugh news. Just a simple Sutter Home White Merlot for the moment, slowly sipping that and enjoying the Holiday Bowl so far. It's definitely not the best wine, but for purposes of hanging about and watching football while contemplating what the hell tomorrow's menu will be, it serves.
