Yeah I think I agree with you after considering your points.

First year coaching the position AND asked to make a major scheme and technique change from the prior two years.

If his last name was different yes-I would.

Less than 48 hours to kick-off and when you factor in about 15 hours of sleep (more or less) we dont have that long to wait anymore.
Keep telling yourself that. I'm trying it and it seems to be working.
At least its working better than the bad drugs did.
|8 hours 10 min ago||I read that here all the time||
I read that here all the time but can somebody point me to an example where a coach, who never previously played or coached a position, was given the position coach job and was successful at it? And especially when you're implimenting a radical scheme change like we did last year?
Sorry - seemed insane and doomed to failure to me last year at this time and still does.
|8 hours 21 min ago||Not surprised||
Pretty sure he would've been a starter here too.
Side note. How in the living hell did Hoke think that Roy Manning, who had never played nor coached DBs in his life, was going to be able to teach proper press coverage techniques? I mean in what peyote fever dream does somebody come up with this as a workable plan?

Well in all fairness we DID win the national championship last year didnt we?
I cant remember.
Gotta give props to the OP though. There are the proliferatiion of the "these are my special thoughts"on the team threads and then there are the the "these are my special thoughts, that make little or no sense and are riddled with fairly rampant mistakes on players names and other salient details" threads about the team.
And then there is this one.

And the Harbaugh era begins

Everybody knows the game was last Thursday....sheesh.
|21 hours 20 min ago||Hey OP - are you the poster||
Hey OP - are you the poster formally known as "Voltron is handsome?" If so, are you also looking forward to the Browns this year (I am for some odd reason).
Been meaning to ask that and I figured this post was as good as any.
|1 day 7 hours ago||I don't think that's out of||
I don't think that's out of the question one bit. I actually remember the 69 game and the "unbeatable" Buckeyes. The parallels between then and now are quite uncanny.

He aint seen NOTHING yet.
Wait until he gets to go to an OSU game at the Big House when a B1G Championship game berth is on the line.

I'm guessing based on your comment they did not pick us.
That link takes you to a firewalled premium site page. Can't read content.

I had not seen the game notes before just now. If they've been out in circulation previously you are absolutely correct.

Did you open the first link on the page? Forget his site - check out link #1.

The first link, with the game date of September 3rd, looked official as hell to me.
But I could be very wrong.

John is VERY careful about protecting his journalistic reputation so if he cant document and reference something to his satisfaction he leaves it out. So a lot of the stuff we'd really like to read about (Brandon's input at the film sessions, what really happened with Morris, etc) I don't think meets the criteria for him to print it.
FWIW I said it here the day after the Minnesota game and nothing has changed my opinion one bit. Hoke had the look of a guy who'd been "ordered" to play somebody (Morris) over his objections and was determined to leave him in there to prove a point. Sort of like "you want him to play? HERE - this is what you get" type body language and actions to me.
I've seen it many times in business when an executive goes over a supervisor's head and demands somebody gets an assignment or promotion they're not ready for. Same results as we got last fall.

This piece starts with the deliberations of President Schlissel and Hackett, as they first decide not whom to recruit, but what kind of coach, then proceeds to explain what those near the program did to help make that marriage possible.
And don't worry, readers: all the excerpts combine add up to about 30 pages of a 460 page book, or about seven-percent. Plenty of meat left on the bone. Hope you enjoy it.

|1 day 21 hours ago||Eh.Go back and look at||
Go back and look at virtually all sportswriter's predictions for just about any sport you care to review. As a rule they predict that whatever happened last year will happen again this year so 7-5 doesnt surprise me.
But I think she's forgetting that for the first time in a LONG time our players, our previously highly ranked players, are now recieving competent coaching from teachers who actually know WTF they are doing. Just the removal of Funk, Jackson and others should do wonders to improve the play of the team.
I dont think we lose this Thursday, I dont think we lose to Minnesota and I think we'll win one of the two rivalry games. Maybe we drop another one we shouldnt (Penn State perhaps) but I've got us at 9-3 and heading for a New Year's bowl someplace warm.
This is not last year. This is the dawning of the age of Harbaugh. All praise his glorious name.

One of the unfortunate side effects from the ending of OT threads are the proliferation of "these are my special thoughts" threads about our football team threads. I had forgotten how much fun these can be - I'm sure within a few days we'll see the following:
Some of these make me long for the days of countertops and snobby cities discussions.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Maybe But as bad as Borges||
But as bad as Borges was, Funk was worse IMO. And without an O line there really isnt anythign an OC can do.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Great article but one quick||
Great article but one quick question. Wouldnt Stitt be our curator's favorite coach, not our coaches favorite coach?
Perhaps Harbaugh has spoken glowingly of Stitt in the past I missed it and if so mea culpa but I sure as heck now Brian waxed poetic on the dude serveral times.

I mean it wont matter much if the O-line IS "rolling guys 10 yards off the ball" if the damn RBs cut into the ass of the nearest lineman they see and not the hole.
Hopefully that's behind us post-Jackson.

Well.......you've read approximately 50 or so pages of a 400 page book so not quite sure you're pretty much read ALL the book via the excerpts.
Wait a second.....are you a student?
If so I understand your thinking now. When I was in school 50 pages out of 400 was pretty much all the book for me.
