But does being famous or annoying or a bad person in other facets of live forfeit benefit of the doubt, guity until proven innocent, etc.?
Again, I'm not saying I'm for or against these findings/results. To be honest, I don't know enough about the case to comment on it. I hate most things that the world latches onto and mobs form...so that's politics, in the sports world that's Donald Sterling, Winston, etc.
I just choose not to pay attention, and then when the country has moved on, I'll go back and educate myself without the influence of the mob.
At the same time, it's frustrating that so many people can form an opinion without being educated themselves. And I'm not saying that's you.
The only thing I've said that relates to your post is simply, no, it is not a general rule that athletes are victimized or targeted. But being an athlete, or being famous, or being Winston and all that he brings shouldn't factor into the equation. Not unless he's done this before, or even if he's been ACCUSED of it before, I can understand passing judgement.
But some just don't like him because he's him - and for me, that's not enough in a serious matter like this. Just like if people loved him, he doesn't get a pass or more benefit of the doubt.
|33 min 33 sec ago||Just because there may have been video doesn't mean he raped her||
It could very easily mean some college kids wanted to be funny and tape there friend having sex.
If that's what's supporting your opinion, then wow.
I'm not saying you can't think one way or the other...that's on you. But just because it may have been taped doesn't mean he's guilty of the horrible crime he's been accused of...it's voyeurism and it's completely different.

He's no longer in the CFL either...not that we couldn't pull him away from the CFL.
Come back Soup!
Come back Tyrone!
Come back Andy!
Jim Harbaugh - QBs/Head Coach
...then when Mattison retires, Manning goes to OLB/DEs and Charles Woodson takes over the CBs. It's happening.
Oops, forgot a special teams coach...Kevin Koger, go make yourself useful. You too Manning. Co-roles for the both of you. Don't fuck it up.
|7 hours 37 min ago||Indeed.||
Hoke didn't allow for fun.
|7 hours 40 min ago||I was totally joking||
Michigan wouldn't allow that to happen.
$50 million based on Jim Harbaugh? That makes no sense. That would affect the jobs and potential jobs of so many people, that would influence your students, that would be plain stupid.
If Ross really wanted that to happen, he could just donate it to the University and the Business Office would hold it seperate from anything related to the University and then move forward with the appropriate action once the decision is made.
Which is also still stupid.
Because he could just donated it after the decision is made if he really wanted to pay the entire salary. It's not like Harbaugh is expecting a check for $50 million the day he signs the contract.
If we have to wait that weird 3-4 weeks to get our first paycheck because our direct deposit has to clear and we have to get "into the system" as they always tell us when we start a new job...Jim Harbaugh has to wait too dammit.
|7 hours 45 min ago||No shit...||
He's not going to hurt Michigan by waiting any longer, he just wants to finish the season.
This is obvious...we've offered him almost $50 mil, he not going to dick us around when we haven't done that to him. Beside, we're the school he loves.
He'll wait til the year is over, which has been reported by EVERYONE. Let the emotions of the year wear off, talk to his family and announce it on Monday or Tuesday.
This is such an obvious statement by Glazer it's not even funny.
I GUARANTEE that if I polled this website and said "okay, be honest and cut the jokes and the memes out for 2 seconds and give me the date you honestly feel Harbaugh is making the decision." I bet more than 75% of this board would've said 12/29 or 12/30.
If you had to put $100 of your own money on a guess, I bet that the vast majority picks a week from Monday or Tuesday. A good chunk of the rest would've picked THIS Monday or Tuesday.
He was always going to finish the season and we could list 100 reasons right now why he'd decide Sunday night - Tuesday night. The biggest reasons being, the earlier he decides the more days he has to recruit and the earlier he decides, the quicker the school he loves can move on if he does indeed spurn us - that way we can get to candidate #2 and give him 48 hours to decide.
|12 hours 27 min ago||Have not...||
...is there a legitimate place to get them?
|13 hours 18 min ago||$49 mil for Harbaugh||
$1 for search firm and expenses.
Nice way to hide that money, Mr. Ross. Way to do us a solid.
...and if by chance, we don't get Harbaugh, he just donated $50 mil to the academic side of things. Smart man, very smart man.
|13 hours 25 min ago||Exactly.||
I was trying to say the same thing below...you just said it better AND in fewer words.
I'd much rather him go out happy and after a win.
|13 hours 28 min ago||Do not want.||
That said, I wanted them to win out...keep Harbaugh happy, but a devistating loss and a quality win next week would be the same feeling. He could say he was proud of this team and their resolve, blah-blah-blah.
He could then head straight to the airport and be in Ann Arbor, a touch happier because his team finished with a W.
Losing a bunch of games may fuel that "I need to prove myself in the NFL" fire...and we don't want that. We don't want him thinking he's got to go to another NFL team and prove his value.
We should also be rooting for a big SF win next week.
|23 hours 3 min ago||Too bad||
They sucked this season.
|23 hours 42 min ago||Oh I agree...||
I'm not against it, I'm just saying I don't think we necessarily need one THIS year.
|23 hours 56 min ago||Which is why||
...he should bring back Soup Campbell!
|23 hours 58 min ago||Nice info - I don't think we need JUCO players||
We'll have a small class and a bunch of young highly touted guys who just need to be coached up and developed.

Give him a heart attack?
|1 day 10 hours ago||Agreed.||
I also think we need to get Clark back into the fold and get another quality OL. Going to need a DB as well.
If we keep who we have and filled the last, say 8 spots with...
Speed RB/SLOT - ??????
Even if the question marks are 3/4 star types that aren't as highly regarded as the four guys named that still a solid class.
A speed demon who can play slot/RB/KR/PR, another OT since we have so many OT/OG tweeners, a big fat boy in the middle who can plug up some holes in short yardage situations, and another DB would make me all giggles.

He should be back as a RS Jr. next year...
|1 day 11 hours ago||Hey the Beef O Brady Bowl should be pretty good this year...||
I like watching UCF...former Lions WR Brett Perriman's son has hands of glue. He's like a second coming of Jason Avant.
However - I get your point.

(That's her big brother Bodie - our Pit/Boxer mix, he's the man)
|1 day 13 hours ago||Turns out that it's a good thing this is a small class||
That means a lot of returning players and the head coach doesn't lose a year in recruiting.
A class of 15 is sounds so much better than a class of 25 right now.
Get the big class after next year.
|1 day 13 hours ago||You asked why censor it...||
Which triggered my response as to why I censored it.
My serious response had nothing to do with your silly joke in my seriously silly thread.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Boom.||
|1 day 13 hours ago||Because||
It's raining outside and I'm getting a slow start to the morning as I'm still laying in bed playing fetch with my 4.5 month old Golden Labrador Retriever with her pink KONG bone...and I felt like being silly.
That answer sufficient enough for you or do we always have to be condescending on this site about every little detail?
You still understood what the subject of the post was about, didn't you?

San Fran wins...
Harbaugh announces to the team that he's leaving after the game...
It breaks on MGoBlog at 1am EST (game is at 8:30pm)...
Harbaugh takes the night and is recruiting by Monday...
All the "2014" crap goes away... (even though getting Harbaugh doesn't erase losing McGary, losing Horford, and most of the teams we care about sucking right now...and the Morris/Minny debacle in my mind...at least not yet, win a NC, and heck yea it does)
But would we break MGoBlog? A 1am announcement isn't going to get the same traffic and it might just be a heavy stream of people all night and all Sunday morning.
Regardless. It's happening.

Even the guys at ESPN hate him...Russillo routinely calls him out and Bomani Jones BLASTED him on Highly Questionable two weeks ago for his continuous hatred on John Wall.
He, Skip Bayless and Stephen A. are just there for the show...they're the E! or TMZ of ESPN and that's what they get paid to do.
