"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

He has a long standing involvement with the Indy 500.
Like Joe Gibbs and his winning NASCAR team, Harbaugh can get involved in something conpletely different than what you are used to seeing him do, and still be successful at it.
The man is a winner. He could lead a team of anything to victories.
He could turn my Mom's Wednesday Bridge club in Naples FL into the most ass-kicking take-no-prisoners Bridge club in the history of all grandmotherdom.

Whereas Hoke always seemed willing to go into battle with one hand tied behind his back, Harbaugh has realized that the combination of himself + Michigan gives him a wealth of unique advantages . . . and he is going to maximize every last ounce of that.
When he says we have to constantly strive to get better, even by 1 mph or 1 %, he's not just talking motivational BS. He's applying it to himself.

They will talk about it like it's a way to even the field with the Big Ten, but what they really will do is use it to get in the face of their SEC rivals.
That's why they had the rule in the first place . . . to keep mini-wars from breaking out in the SEC
Well forget that shit. Look for Florida camps in Tuscaloosa and Alabama camps in Baton Rouge and Georgia camps in Knoxville.
It will be all kinds of squawking and chaos.

I actually hope it does not. Then it will look like the US did all of this just to "steal" the WC from Qatar.
In case you have not heard, there are a lot of countries that do not like or trust the US, and are highly susceptible to any kind of conspiracy theory.
Better to let it play out and be rewarded for our cleaning house at a later date.

Love MIB. They've got to be eating this up. They hate FIFA, and for good reason.

It will be interesting to see if their governments, besides the Swiss, will extradite them.
Foreign governments hate to extradite to the big bad USA, but they may actually hate FIFA even more in this case.
What I never understood is why the big world soccer powers did not just ignore corrupt FIFA and have their own tournament. The Brits would do it in a second, they hate FIFA. All it would take is Germany, Italy, Brazil, and Argentina to join them and the whole thing would be over.

The Big Chill.
Just to see a scene set in Michigan Stadium while in Michigan Stadium.

Man, I feel sorry for you guys. I lived in Dayton for 7 years, from the mid-80's to the early 90's. It was a great time to live in hard-core Buckeye country, which Dayton is. I was constantly walking around with a shit-eating grin on my face.
We only lost to OSU twice the whole time I was there, and one of them was when Bruce got fired and even I felt bad for him.
I worked at NCR during that time, and on the Friday before the '86 OSU game (the Harbaugh guarantee game), I looked up at the top of one of the NCR buildings (PCD/Building #30 I think), and there was a giant Block M Michigan flag flying for all the world to see. It felt like seeing the Stars and Stripes flying over Mount Suribachi. I knew then and there that we were going to win.
I went to the game in Columbus with some Buckeye friends from Dayton. I had to hide my Michigan sweatshirt under a coat after we won and then went into several Columbus bars. It was a quiet trip back to Dayton, but it didn't matter to me.
Here's hoping that Harbaugh can make it safe (and fun) for Michigan fans to live in Dayton again like he did the first time.

I like that the "Team #" thing has stuck around.
It didn't work out for Hoke, but that does not mean he did not leave something to the Michigan legacy. Like Amaker and the maize student section which has bled over to football and other sports, or Red getting playes to wear the winged helmet which has been picked up by other helmet-wearing Michigan sports.
Everybody contributes something.

If you are not a Lions fan, he's not that bad. A lot of the visceral hate for him is because of his time with the Lions. But if you were not following any of that, he's just another announcer.
He doesn't move the needle for me one way or another.
That being said, you would think the BTN would use some of that wad of cash to upgrade their announcers and their production values.
The BTN still looks like the evening news sports segment on small-market local TV.
