Merry Christmas! I have all my kids here at the house and we went out to a samurai steakhouse for dinner then just finished watching "national lampoons Christmas vacation"

I'm 55 and right there with you.

Looks like somebody's dad just found out his Twitter handle.

You better make sure they've got that Dogfish 90 keg full and ready to go. You said 100 beers - not one beer to 100 guys so I plan on driving up from Cleveland and being first at your table to order.
We'll toast to JIm and my Greatgrandtather U of M Dentist (in the first Michigan Dental School BTW), my Grandfather U of M Dentist, my late father U of M Dentist and my brother U of M Dentist and my sister U of M Dental Hygenist.
I'll probably only be able to finish five or so of those babies before passing out so dont send everyone home right away.

Is this real? I mean at first I'm thinking this is just a goof but now I'm starting to wonder. Do people actually "plan" on how to celebrate if/when we get a new head football coach? For real?
And do you have similar plans if Jimmy turns it down and we get "stuck" with Les Miles or Dan Mullen or even Jim Mora? Do you still celebrate but just less? Or does it turn into mourning?
This facinates me.

|2 days 2 hours ago||So is this a done deal like||
So is this a done deal like "Harbaugh to Michigan" is a done deal or is this more of a "Harbaugh's staying in the NFL" done deal? Oris this one of those "Mora will take the job if offered" done deal's?
I used to know what that term meant (or so I thought). Not so much anymore.

Hey my personal #2 choice is Miles. Not sure would he would be considered though.

Because a great coach but not the great coach we all want would be coming?

Yeah I heard it.
BUT WE WEREN'T SUPPOSE TO BE TALKING ABOUT IT SIR.

In sorry michael that really sucks. I hope you're ok and try and remember it's ok to love both of them-they want you to take a side so they can be vindicated in the fight. Don't do it.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Not like there's anything||
Not like there's anything important riding on it. Win and they secure a first round bye and possible home field advantadge throughout the playoffs.
Lose and they'll probably be playing at Seattle in the WildCard round.
What's the big deal?
|2 days 23 hours ago||So in year 3 of Harbaugh do||
So in year 3 of Harbaugh do you think his red shirt sophomores will start replacing some of Hoke's Seniors as Michigan tries to defend it's national championship trophy for the second straight year?
Or will our Heisman-winning QB have to take a seat behind our first time ever SIX star recruit to get him some playing time?

This major "event" takes place annually and is celebrated world-wide on the 25th of December?
What is "Christmas" Alex?
I'll take prolonged coaching searches for $500 please.

Speaking of which. Whatever happened to Professor X (from here) anyways?

For me it was when I saw him standing at the podium wearing his block M hat once again just like the good old days. Until then I was a sceptic.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Fisher||
Which is why I put that one in the "probably not" category. But in all fairness he's 20-26-1 in three years which aint exactly impressive no matter where you're coaching.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Agreed:||
5. Giants (retire)
Probably not but you never know
9. Tampa Bay
Pretty sure there would be job somewhere there for Jim if he wants it.
|3 days 2 hours ago||Meanwhile back at the point||
Meanwhile back at the point of the thread (Miles) I still maintain he IS the "plan B" option but out of respect to Miles they are giving him air cover at LSU by saying he isnt. The only way Miles comes into play here is if Harbaugh somehow gets cold feet (or a mega NFL offer) at the last minute so it's not like we NEED to go public about Les anyways. We'll only need to talk about Miles if Harbaugh's a no-go and it looks like that won't be needed so why screw things up for Les at LSU for no reason?
I think we've got both plan A AND plan B locked & loaded "just in case". Now it's just the end game with the 49ers which is why we've been both patient and quiet.

"Coppin State is, um, not good"
Can you clarify that a bit further by any chance? Are they not good like Eastern Michigan wasn't good or are they not good like NJIT was not good?
Cause right now the whole concept of "not good" as it relates to basketball is a glass house we should probably not throw any rocks in.

That surprises me. I think Shiano would be an excellent hire by Pitt and presents a stronger resume than Narduzzi.
|3 days 3 hours ago||um.....no||
|3 days 4 hours ago||Well here's the good news||
Well here's the good news guys re the 2011 "did he or didn't he" talk today. Once Jim accepts the job to be our HC we can ask him the question directly.
I nominate Heiko to come out of retirement for a presser to ask Harbaugh that very thing. One think for sure - that dude was fearless in a presser.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Do you remember this scene?||
Those are the smiling, happy faces of Tallahassee's finest when they announced that they would not be pursuing charges against young Jamis last year. Have you ever seen law enforcement officials as visably thrilled at the decision to not move forward against the local hero and keep him from playing in the NCG? I havent.
Every story I have read to date which is pro-Winston (like the one you link and the Reddit link below) are written by FSU season ticket holders for God's sake. Do you honestly look at that and discount their obvious bias in reporting and accept everything as gospel?
|3 days 17 hours ago||I have never understood how||
I have never understood how the "trade the HC" was suppose to work. It means the team the HC is going to (let's say Oakland) weakens itself to get the coach it wants. But what motivation is there for the coach? The team he's got to run got crappier by one or more missing draft picks - how is that something desireable?
It only works if the coach has a boner to go coach for the other team and doesnt care if they're any good in the short run. And I dont think that describes Harbaugh with Oakland or any other team for that matter.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Ok I just read it. All of||
Ok I just read it. All of it. And my favorite part was right at the very,very end:
"I noticed at the Clemson game, amidst all the rigamarole of Winston’s suspension, that the stadium was still selling jerseys with 5 on it. It was the only number you could buy. I remember shaking my head and telling myself I would never buy a kid’s likeness.
Well, that was just a month ago. We’ve come so far through the moral looking glass on this that I’m actually gonna drive to some place other than Play-it-Again-Sports today to buy a 5 jersey. I’m gonna wear it in Tallahassee on Saturday.
Very impartial don't you think? I mean if you can't trust a Jamis-jersey wearing, Florida State season ticket holder's version of the events of the night in question who can you trust?
|3 days 18 hours ago||Right. Because the noted||
Right. Because the noted judicial expert "PotRoastPotatoe" you link to says so. Apparently if the lady posts on twitter as #cleatchaser she's a shameless slut who cant be believed but PotRoast - well we just know he has to be accurate.
Oh one more thing about your esteemed Mr. PotRoastPotatoe. He's about as hardcore a Florida State fan as you will find.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Me too. But the sad reality||
Me too. But the sad reality is the following:
1. He stays in the NFL in which case they crow loudly about how right they were and how they knew it all along.
2. He takes the Michigan job in which case the Michigan fans are euphoric and dont give a shit that they were wrong and the rest of the country has moved on to the hot topic and promptly forgets anything they said or wrote within 15 minutes of his announcement.
I think once you get annoited as an insider it's always "heads I win - tails you lose"

If I was Jamis Winston's attorney
That dude is in for one hell of shock when he learns how the judicial system works when the prosecutors & judge don't have a Fathead of you on their family room wall.
