The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

It's unique. I don't think I'd like it to be a regular thing but as a one time thing it isn't horrible.

Great news. Now back to football. Hopefully Tom can win his fifth super bowl and retire as THE greatest QB in NFL history.

Isn't the 4-2-5 just a 4-4 but with two hybrid space players instead of outside line backers?

“What’s significant is having Michigan leave the Big House and come here to play.
That is what happens with P5 programs. They schedule home and homes.
That would have never happened five or six years ago and beyond.
Well five or six years ago you weren't a P5 program.

That makes me laugh becuase RRod was only getting $2.5M a year. Hoke comes in and the HC salary was almost double that, plus he got to pay his DC $1M.
If I recall my 3 and out correctly RRod wanted more money for his assistants at WVU and he was promised it at Michigan. Yet Casteel didn't come because he wasn't getting a pay bump. Sure RRod could have given him money out of his own salary but it is absurd that you can't pay an extra $250K for your HC's favorite DC yet when hoke comes in you give him $2M more in salary and $1M for the DC of his choosing.
RRod did many things that hurt him at Michigan. His initial press conference was a disaster. His adherence to his system and justifying it by saying we lose big, lose small, win small, win big hurt him when the program prided itself on a 30+ year bowl run.

I think you forget all the swirling speculation during bowl prep that RRod was going to be fired no matter the outcome of the game because Brandon wanted save $1M in a buyout by getting past Jan 1. I remember the Gator Bowl disaster and I think if Brandon had given RRod a show of support and promised to give him $1M for the best DC available then we would have had as good if not better year in 2011 than we had. Just my opinion.

Fair enough, but RRod had the program trending up. That trend culminated in the first year of Hoke's tenure. Ever since then the program has been trending down, until this year.

RRod was trending up. If he had $1M to pay a DC I'll bet he would have gotten Casteel. Heck he could have had Casteel for far less.
Would we have been elite? 2011 seems to indicate yes. I would have loved to see RRod coach that offense in 2011. I'll go to my death believing that Denard would have won a heisman if he had played out his career under RRod. As for the defense, yeah ugh.
If we had to go through football purgatory for 7 years in order to get to football heaven (15+ years of Harbaugh and multiple championships) then it will have been worth it.

During Bacon's AMA on /r/cfb he said that 3 current NFL coaches (not Harbaugh) were interested in the job and one was willing to take it if offered. So in hindsight I was never worried with Hackett running the show.

This. I'm glad we have Harbaugh but I think if RRod had been given the instutional support that Hoke had he would still be here.

Any inherent biases we have as Michigan fans will still be there in estimating our % chances of victory in individual games.
Perhaps asking for individual game % chance victory along with a number of wins for the season would be interesting to compare.

Why you aren't just polling the blog about the number of wins? That is a single value and would test the theory the same way judging a cows weight by picture would.

Les was perfect for Michigan in 2007. By 2011 he was already overshadowed by Harbaugh. Unfortunately it didn't work out for the "Mad Hatter". I hope after he gets out of coaching he can make a few visits and be more visible around the program.

Fair enough, but you can't tell me that the P-51 Mustang and B-17 Flying Fortress flyover for last years Utah game wasn't awesome.

I guess it depends on if he wants to play for his Dad or not. I can't imagine a coach wouldn't love to have an "extra" scholarship by having his borderline D1 son walk on the team. And I imagine most Universities have steep discounts for children of faculty and staff, not that a P5 coach needs it.

Best case scenario 12 regular season wins.
Worst case scenario 0 regular season wins.
That being said the 90th percentile range for our record is probably 6 wins to 10 wins.

That is a gaf but in now way does that make him clumsy as he was portrayed. The man was a fantastic athelete in his day.

The other issue with tall interior linemen is they block the passers view downfield. I know that we have some tall QBs but if you have a guy around 6' and his guards and center are a half foot taller than him it can be difficult to make downfield reads.

Life Pro Tip: If you are trying to scalp a ticket at a stadium you are unfamiliar with either print out a copy of the stadium layout or bring it up on your smart phone so scalpers can't tell you the seats are better than they really are.

It is ironic that he was portrayed by the media to be a klutz and yet he was the MVP of the 1934 team, albeit that team did go 1-7.

It looks like he is wearing a brace on his right knee. Perhaps he has a smaller thigh pad to make room for the brace. His right knee is the one he injured correct?
