He was pretty darn good at Washington and Alabama. And I'm not sure that Morris and Gardner regressed as much as some people think - Michigan didn't have a single go-to receiver this year (Funchess was a flop), nor did they have a reliable guy in the slot like Drew Dileo. Meanwhile, the running game did improve from 3.3 yards/carry to 4.6 yards/carry, which is a jump from #115 to #47 in the country.

Graham Glasgow has started every game (except the 2014 season opener due to suspension) at two different positions for the past two years, so I include him going into his fifth year. Ryan Glasgow was a backup in 2013, and Kerridge is a part-time player at a position that often gets subbed out, so I'm somewhat indifferent to including them.

Jim Harbaugh's wide receivers haven't been extremely productive. He's better at developing a running game and play action passing - including to the tight ends - off of it. From 2008-2010 at Stanford, his leading receivers had 508, 926, and 857 yards. Meanwhile, his leading rusher had 1,100+ yards each year (including 1,800 yards from Toby Gerhart in 2009).

It really makes no sense to keep Bellomy. He's no better than a walk-on. Seriously, he's perhaps worse than Nick Sheridan. I'll grant that they're different offenses, but I had less dread about the QB position when Sheridan was on the field than when Bellomy has played. You might as well throw Garrett Moores out there.

I always assume walk-ons are walk-ons since they chose to attend the school without the promise of a scholarship. I think most coaches would view those guys as year-to-year guys. Some schools have oversigning; others use the walk-on program. There's also a chance that someone like Kerridge would be expendable with a spread-oriented coach, kind of like what happened with the fullback (Mark Moundros, for example) under Rich Rodriguez.

I don't see any problem with keeping Nussmeier on, provided that the new coach doesn't have a right-hand man who has a symbiotic relationship. For example, Rich Rodriguez/Calvin Magee work well together. I wasn't 100% happy with the play calling in 2014, but nobody is ever 100% happy with anyone's play calling.

The "Harbaugh could go to the NFL" argument is so stale to me. Any coach at any point could bolt for another college job or move to the NFL. Les Miles could retire in three or four years. Tom Herman could bolt for Ohio State or Texas in a few years.
I do think Brady Hoke would have stayed at Michigan for the remainder of his career (another 15 years, maybe), but he's the exception, not the rule.

Because the best way of conducting business is to tell everyone what your #2 plan is in case your #1 plan doesn't work...right?
That's how you stay ahead of the game.

I don't think he would fall to the 5th round, but I think #15 is too high for him. To me he seems like a guy who should be picked no higher than the late 20's. I think he's a move guy for a team that already has an established in-line tight end, kind of like the Aaron Hernandez to the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski (although hopefully not EXACTLY like Aaron Hernandez).

Considering who they are, I think it would be a good choice for them. James Conner is someone who Schiano can ride for some early success. Plus Schiano has history/connections in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, etc.

I guess not.
Also, threads should be added to the MGoBoard forum when you post them. That way updates will be visible on the MGoBoard. Otherwise, it's hard to know when there are more comments added to the thread.

Yeah, other than Julio Jones, Alabama's wideouts haven't really stood out until Cooper.

Donovan Warren stuck around through the transition. He played at Michigan from 2007-2009, which includes Rodriguez's first two seasons.
I truly don't think there are a lot of veteran kids who would leave the program if Harbaugh were hired. Not only because Harbaugh is a similar type of coach offensively, but because he would be viewed as Michigan's "savior," a guy coming home to help out his alma mater. What kid who committed to Michigan for its tradition would walk away from a coach like that? (I'm not saying that NOBODY would transfer, but it's unlikely there would be a mass exodus.)
Furthermore, the veteran players have more to lose by transferring. All the guys who redshirted already would have to sit out another year before they could play elsewhere. The players most likely to transfer would be the backup linemen, defensive backs, linebackers - mostly young guys - who are blocked for playing time.

Here are the states that Jim Harbaugh's recruits came from in his final class at Stanford:
That's 12 states represented out of 22 players altogether, with 15 of them coming from outside the states holding Pac-12 teams. I would say his success at Stanford and in the NFL would open up doors across the country, including in California.

I have Bielema higher than that. He knows how to run the ball and play defense.

Personally, I think most of Michigan's defensive starters in 2015 will have a good shot at the NFL at some point, and a number of Michigan's offensive players will, too (though not as many). I think Hoke did a great job of recruiting talent - guys with size, speed, etc. Obviously, there are some deficiencies at key positions (QB, WR) and some youth (OL), but the raw talent is there for a lot of these guys to play at the next level.
