Hoo boy I just read that article you linked. Ray has been a very busy (and not very nice) boy recently. And given the past incidents between him and his fiance I think it's save to say there will be more trouble at home given he's being investigated for sexual assult AND it looks like he's about to be cut.

As long as his body language is still saying "HEY EVERYONE I HAVE SECRETLY SIGNED A CONTRACT TO COACH AT MICHIGAN FOR THE NEXT EIGHT YEARS BUT DONT TELL ANYBODY YET" I'm ok with it.

Necessary? No. Accurate? Yes.
I was there dude and time and time again, right after something horrible happened on offense, the in-stadium camera crew would focus on some semi-attractive women who would seemingly ALWAYS smile and make that stupid money sign to the camera once she noticed she was on the Jumbotron.
It's kinda cute when he/they do it after a touchdown. It's fucking embarrassing as hell when it's done right after Johnny gets sacked.

Well there goes the whole "MGoBlog as a respected source" thing straight down the tubes.
Thanks a lot Somewittyname.

Don't forget us Browns fans. I was as caught up in the hype as anybody and thought our QB savior had finally arrived. What was amazing was the amount of expectations around the city last week and the stadium on game day and how fast and how far they fell after watching whatever the hell THAT was last Sunday.
What made we want to hit things though were the idiot fans (usually women) who were on the jumbo tron in the second half with their Manzeil gear on (everybody had Johnny Football gear on it seemed) making that stupid money sign as we were getting killed and he was playing like absolute dogshit. It was like they hadnt yet clued in on the fact he was stinking up the joint.
Can he get better? Sure but like you pointed out- gonna be hard to get him to grow and put on weight between now and Sunday that's for sure.

Maybe we should give those things a test drive sometime.

Hey - I just personally witnessed the "Johnny Football" debut here in Cleveland this past Sunday.
Just cause somebody picks you in the first round doesnt mean that where you should go.

|1 day 20 hours ago||Swim lanes||
Seriously though take a step back and look at what's happening. Nebraska, Oregon State, Wisconsin and Florida all jumped fast for the first available candidate (or so it seems) and not much of their fan base is happy with the selection.
None of our primary candidates are off the board so ALL of them remain potentially in play and I think there's a solid reason for that. I believe Hackett has communicated to each of them their relative attractiveness to Michigan as a candidate and the timeline we're waiting on from Harbaugh. I think we've probably indicated to them something like "as you know we're waiting to hear from Harbaugh but we dont know what he's going to do and if he's a no - we'd very much like to consider you for the job. And we'll get an answer from him by X date." It's not like our interest in Harbaugh is a big secret and it's not like any of the other guys would be insulted at the knowledge we've made him our first choice.
I think Hacket has quietly lined up candidates 2, 3, 4, and so on and has a date in his head when everything is going to start rolling but he's waiting on Jim. And he TOLD us that in his presser regarding the search when he mentioned the "swim lanes". It's funny to me that we seem to have forgotten that collectively that Hacket was pretty transparent in his ".....you can get a C candidate right now but to get the A candidate you might have to wait" speach to all of us.
Patience all - patience.

That would surprise me only because the Raiders are the worst NFL option IMO he could choose. If true I can only assume this is due more to his family situation (i:e: daughter) than anything else.

Any updates from your contact on the West Coast?
|1 day 21 hours ago||Until we start actually||
Until we start actually losing candidates that would be a good fit I'm not going to get worried. Miles's non-official, official denial is meaningless IMO and he could easily say "that's why it was off the record guys" if he gets the offer and takes the job. Mullen hasnt signed his extension yet. Herman hasnt signed his contract yet and nothing's happened with the Alpha Dog out in SF yet either.
So with apologies to Brady Hoke "all our head coaching goals are still within reach" - nothing's changed and every day that passes with no change in the above increases the likelyhood that everyone's simply waiting on Harbaugh to make the call and then the dominoes will start falling fast.
This is kinda fun to be honest.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Having followed the Lions for||
Having followed the Lions for the past 45 years I can't tell which is more likely to happen - well because Lions:
A. The Lions lose to a dead in the water, lifeless Bears team playing for nothing that hates their coach, their QB and life in general thereby meaning they HAVE to win in GB to make the playoffs.
B. They beat the Bears but lose to the Packers and the combination of NFL tie-breakers renders them one of the few11 win team's in modern history to miss the playoffs entirely while a 7-9 Saints team gets in and gets home field for the first round.

I think Sam is making a lot of sense. No official word from Harbaugh so Miles takes his name out of consideration just like Saban did with the Alabama job right before he took it. (wink, wink)
In other words dont believe anything Miles just said.
|2 days 10 hours ago||This is an old story bouncing||
This is an old story bouncing back on itself. Henson is referencing the Andy Moeller tweet from last week where Harbaugh allegedly said "looks like we're getting the band back together" and posting it like it's new information. Then Henson gets picked up, sited as a source by other people and suddenly the rumor has legs because mulitple people are reporting it.
It's an echo chamber guys. Take a deep breath everyone and step back from the F5 key

Sony pictures announces it's latest hit. The 5-7 coaching change, no bowl game Michigan football team stars in the new movie:
"HONEY, I SHRUNK THE RECRUITING CLASS"
Coming to a stadium near you in September, 2015.

What I fear is that we don't get Jimmy but we DO get an excellent plan B and massive upgrade in coaching with any of the "3m's" (Miles, Mora or Mullen) and people here are sad instead of happy.

And this is the part where we all smile, nod our head and remember the first time our post didnt go through right away so we hit "save" muliple times thinking that would speed things up only to find out, to our horror, we'd created a series of muliple posts.
Been there myself Mr "mobile connection sucks" guy.
|2 days 22 hours ago||I had us 10-3 with losses to||
I had us 10-3 with losses to ND, MSU & OSU but with a New Year's day bowl win over an SEC team. I also thought they we had an outside shot at 11-2 with a win over a very beatable ND team and that the MSU & OSU losses would be very close but ulimately we'd lose (unfortunately). I thought we'd end the season ranked in the top 10 and would be a top 5 team in 2015 due to our favorable home schedule, the depth Hoke had build plus our amazing incoming recruiting class and year II of what promised to be an explosive Nuss offense.
So I pretty much nailed it huh?
