|9 hours 13 min ago||I believe the intra-conference transfer rule||
was changed not long ago. He could get a scholarship, but I'm not sure if Ohio State could block him from transferring to certain schools.
|9 hours 25 min ago||Never heard more excuses for a coach in my life.||
I can agree that one year is too short to judge someone. But when the players under your direct tutelage are getting worse, why give him the benefit of the doubt and make excuses for him?
He gave Gardner more responsibility for reading the defense pre-snap. In retrospect, that looks like a disastrous decsision. Morris regressed and was completely mishandled. Nuss wasn't helpless. He didn't know our personnel coming in and didn't figure out how to help them. As much as Borges got blamed for not adjusting to our QBs' strengths, it seems that Nuss was no better in that regard.
|10 hours 38 min ago||Things may have changed since they were sold,||
but all you needed to work for them was to submit a grammatically acceptable piece of writing. There was no pay involved.
|14 hours 18 min ago||All the Super bowl talk struck me as overly simplistic.||
Every NFL coach wants to a win a Super bowl. Why wouldn't they? It goes with the job, it doesn't means it's their life ambition.

|21 hours 9 min ago||Hoke coached the DTs.||
He'll probably spend next year in the NFL doing that.
|1 day 7 hours ago||I think this was the job he was hired to do.||
Clean house, get the donors together and make a home run hire and pave the way for a smooth transition to the next guy. There's a lot more involved in being an AD. As well as Hackett is doing what he was brought in for, Michigan should want someone with a lot of experience working in the field to be the permanent AD.
|1 day 7 hours ago||It can't happen.||
Harbaugh may or may not have a buyout provision in his contract if he resigns to coach at Michigan. He almost certainly has a non-compete clause to keep him from coaching in the NFL next year.Those are standard in pro sports.
|1 day 8 hours ago||If the 49ers want to trade him,||
they wouldn't wait until the final few hours to give him permission to talk to another team. If Oakland was going to trade for Harbaugh, why wouldn't they have a deal in place already? It would be in both team's best interests.
Tampering is a very big deal. These leagues don't take kindly to owners breaking the rules to screw another owner.
|1 day 8 hours ago||I don't think you're right about the timing.||
As long as Harbaugh is employed by the 49ers no other NFL can talk to him or his agent. That would constitute tampering, a serious offense in the NFL. SF can grant other teams an opportunity to negotiate with him pending a trade. They could do that at any time. Given the timing of our offer, SF should have been shopping Harbaugh around already if they had hope of making a trade. Something could happen at the last minute, but I don't think any team could wait until Monday to make a move.
|1 day 12 hours ago||No kidding.||
In reference to the Bears, the author says if Harbaugh wants to go to a cold weather job, he'd prefer Michigan. I don't think these writers even notice when they're contradicting themselves.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I don't think the decision to fire Hoke was Hackett's.||
I think Schlissel made it, probably after the Minnesota game. Schlissel explicity said that Hackett had the authority as an interim to fire the coach. He's careful with his words. He's not likely to undermine a coach like that if he might be coming back. I think Hackett's here instead of a permanent AD because he of his perceived ability to make a big time hire.
|1 day 15 hours ago||I'm just curious, what missteps has Hackett made,||
that would make anyone think he doesn't understand how to conduct this coaching search? It seems very clear that even Schlissel was aware of the importance of the timeframe we're dealing with. Why are we still thinking they might not know what they want and how to go about getting it?
|1 day 18 hours ago||I don't think there should be any question about that.||
However, adding someone like Rosen to the class is also a no-brainer if it's possible. There's always going to be a competition for playing time. I don't that would dissuade Malzone from sticking.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Whether he's signed is irrelevant.||
He could work all year without a signed contract. Michigan probably just has to submit the names of the new staff for them to become official as far the NCAA is concerned.
He would certainly be covered by the rules for boosters until he became the coach.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Anderson to Oregon St. is #1 to me.||
Oregon St was in a tough spot, suddenly losing their coach, and snagged arguably the best of the proven HCs to date.
Morris and Herman also look like really good gets. Narduzzi would be a good gamble for a mid-major. For Pitt, I don't know, maybe a bit of a reach.
Wisconsin did as well as they could have. Florida and especially Nebraska surprised me, apparently valuing speed in filling the job highly.
No one has hired Schiano, so none of the moves smack of desperation. That's not a jab at him. He was immediately available and plausible for some places. We know he's not holding out for our job.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Manson doesn't have enough||
|3 days 12 hours ago||Nebraska and Florida were never in it for Harbaugh.||
I've read, and not just on ESPN.com, that if Harbaugh comes back to college it's only going to be at Kansas. I guess that's why KU is still waiting to fill a job that was vacant long before ours.
We're pursuing Jason Garrett according to some national writers. That makes a lot of sense if you don't think about it.
Throw in the Joe Moglia, Cutcliffe and Schiano talk. The no Ipads and Michigan won't pay for assistants or support staff. Add in the completely contradictory reasons why something can't happen. I wonder if such stupdity is par for the course and I'm just noticing now because it involves Michigan. It's either that, or a bizarre contest trying to see who can make the most ridiculous comment and have other sites take it seriously.
|3 days 15 hours ago||You do realize that a few years ago||
pretty much every forum looked like that? They haven't kept up with the times, probably because they're content to be what they are. A small site where a lot of the posters know each other, not one flooded by kids and trolls. Not somewhere people constantly get banned and reappear with new IDs. MGoBlog is a commercial venture of a different type. That doesn't make the members here any better or more reliable.
|3 days 15 hours ago||That board and those posters have been around a long time,||
a lot longer than this site. They're not HS kids and trolls fooling around.
|3 days 17 hours ago||If Ryan and Clark weren't our two best defensive||
players this season, who were? Other than that quibble, you made some good points.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Really? I was guessing it was another HS student.||
Still not completely ruling that out.
|3 days 21 hours ago||The deals of Harbaugh's contract have never been||
made public afaik. There's been lots of speculation based on differing guesses as to what they are. It makes sense that he would have some sort of buyout clause if he were to go back to college. Considering what had recently happened with Petrino, SF could have wanted some protection against the same thing happening to them.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Given some of the horrible special teams||
play we saw this season, having a coach on staff with good experience as an ST coordinator makes me feel a little better. I'm not so sure about Muschamp as a home run hire simply because he might only stay for a year. I could easily see his name connected with some HC openings next year.
|4 days 12 hours ago||NFL teams need SF's permission to do that||
as long as he's under contract. Doesn't matter whether his season's over. It looks like Michigan is trying to time this so he's never a free agent. That's in SF's interest, too.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Complete frauds never need to hedge their bets.||
They can afford to double down and come back under a new name if they're discredited.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Good call, he slipped in unnoticed with their basketball||
|4 days 12 hours ago||Let them have 1000 different excuses.||
Who cares? I'd much rather listen to theirs than to ours.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Devin regressed.||
Was anyone impressed by how he handled Shane? I was looking forward to seeing what Nuss could do when he was hired. Now, I'm looking even more forward to seeing someone else working with our QBs.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Is experience recruiting at a school like BYU,||
or Air Force as you mentioned above, relevant for how someone will recruit at Michigan? Those schools are similar. It's incredibly hard to recruit a very highly ranked class, probably impossible. I suspect it's also very difficult to recruit against them for the players they do get. Those schools have very few peers for the students that are interested in them. Lavell Edwards won at BYU for a very long time.
He looks like a good coach, but not a sure thing It's uncertain how happy he would be here. He lacks connections in our main recruiting areas. We're looking for a big name to make an immediate impact, if not on our record, then on the fanbase. He wouldn't do that.
