Certainly a fair point. I'm also (oddly) just now realizing that he is the candidate this year. He is more sought after for any HC job (getting his name thrown around for Raiders, Bears, Jets, and Dolphins). How often is one guy sought after so heavily.
But still this is technically a public school with an amateur (haha) sports program. Again, wow- $8 million

I get that. But this isn't an example of breaking "below the norm". This is hugely above the norm. It's above anyone else in football! I think it merits discussion. Remember, this would (by a huge margin) make him the highest paid state employee, and I will reiterate, way above the POTUM.

OK I don't know where to put this and we certainly don't need new threads:
Anybody else (while of course wanting to see U-M football successful and acknowledging Harbaugh would be an excellent choice as next coach) and little stunned and/or apprehensive about this $8 million figure? I mean, double what his predecessor had and quadruple what our recently NC winning coach had! More than any coach in a professional team gets! Quadruple what the President of the University gets!
The one thing that hack Rap got right is this: Wow

Less than an hour = >200 posts. If this actually happens I think there's no way I'd find out about on this website haha

I've been saying this. There is a very specific reason we're taking as much time as we are...

I read things too quickly and thought you were giving actual WD a hard time...nope.
Fortunately stupid stuff (& people) get removed

The delay was the firing. Hoke wasn't hired quickly but we weren't waiting a month for the nfl season to be over

Ugh. Gut punch

Well we don't look good no doubt but what I'm watching isn't basketball. Every time someone has the ball they're "hand checked" at best, hit normally. Really rough shitty play
|1 week 1 day ago||I haven't been able to watch||
I haven't been able to watch the whole thing. Has EMU gotten away with fouls like this all game?

8...Lloyd's last was awful. I graduated in'07. It's all been downhill since then (I know correlation is of corse not causation)
|1 week 2 days ago||Every day that goes by I do||
Every day that goes by I do think that Jim Harbaugh will be our next coach. I do believe that if it were to be anyone else, it would have happened already.

Never been to Indy but United Center ( I think that's what it's still called) is not near the hotels, restaurants, or nightlife

Love the idea, hate that we change the dates of the tournament to accommodate this & the not-so-big east

In fairness to WD he noted MSG which of course doesn't accommodate football.

On phone can't edit. I meant to say EVERY football season. Seems like the debate won't die. Again, I think we're done now (crosses fingers)
|1 week 5 days ago||Yeah I can definitely see||
Yeah I can definitely see your last point. At least once a month during the football season I've seen some sort of rehash of the RichRod debate play out. Now that we've fired our coach & are looking for another while the PAC12 COY plays for a playoff spot I hope we can let thing be water under the bridge & move forward with our new harbaugh...err I meant coach

For obvious reasons I didn't want to start a new thread but think its a taking point and goes here as well as anywhere:

|1 week 6 days ago||Multiple factors. -Bball||
-Bball recruiting starts much earlier (for top end talent in middle school). We only more recently have been a power and when these players started looking U-M may not have been attractive
-Coach B has not as much of a history recruiting 5 & 4* guys. Some of that is purposely as he doesn't want 1-and-done types. He normally finds guys who are under-recruited and likely to blow up (Trey, LeVert, Stauskus, and yes GRII...hell even Spike). Any time one moves outside their normal MO they may not be as successful.
-It also feels worse. In Fball if you miss 2-3 guys its MUCH easier to find 2-3 repleacement cause there are more players for more spots. A couple misses feels like (and to a certain extent is) a big deal. It only takes a big player landed though to really change things for the better (right Mitch? right Trey?)
-one last (admittedly smaller) factor. We're adidas. Seriously some of these players (or their family, handlers, etc.) do not want them to be away from the cash cow that is Nike.

He said it would be someone U-M fans would be happy about. Your list is underwhelming (aside from Wittingham who, as been said many times here, is very unlikely to go anywhere)
