Agents by DEFINITION are people you control. No way Harbaugh allows his agent to use UM for leverage even if they suggest it to him. You have never hired an attorney or agent for anything, have you?
|6 hours 11 min ago||That makes very little sense.||
That makes very little sense. Nothing known about JH indicates he would treat Michigan in that way. Also, the Niners might not care about a small decrease in trade value if it means getting any offers, NOW, from teams offering them anything, right?

What if SF leaked it? They want Harbaugh to take a NFL offer too.
|6 hours 59 min ago||No. SF could have leaked in||
No. SF could have leaked in desperate attempt to get trade value. Or, details could leak because now draft Contracts are putting these details before more eyes.

So, he rebuffed Michigan because he wouldn't leave while the Niners were in the hunt until last weekend? WHAT?
|9 hours 2 min ago||Is this guy saying Harbaugh||
Is this guy saying Harbaugh personally rebuffed Michigan earlier. I hope you guys on Twitter are making a point of how dumb that comment is in light of Michigan waiting for Harbaugh

I still occassionally check FlightAware to see if the block on tracking has expired. I figure it might automatically expire at some point.
I have problems.

This search was missing this rumor.....
It's a classic of ANY coach search.

Probably not. Vegas seems to make its own rules about what they think is fair or not that are design to keep the odds in their favor. For example, if someone is smart enough to count cards, why is that not allowed?

Jim Harbaugh was Bo's third choice for a scholarship offer (in the pre-cap days). One guy chose Michigan State. The other guy chose Pitt. Michigan ended up with Harbaugh.

If anything Michigan's recruits have been on par with OSU.
|6 days 13 hours ago||He never said anything like||
He never said anything like that. You are just making things up. Is it possible? Maybe, but anything is possible if you want to start throwing out potential things that are not even close to being mentioned. I guess aversion to the color blue could be a factor as well. Maybe Michigan state income tax is a factor? Maybe the training table meals are too hearty for a health conscious coach. Maybe the lack of a loud home field advantage is a factor? I mean, what you are doing in looking into this comment is ridiculous. He gave his reason, fear of high expectations and Meyer in C-Bus. That's clearly on him and hypotheticals about other minor issues is irrelevant to the discussion.

Then how is Michigan getting in its own way? You have to be able to articulate what you are thinking.
|6 days 13 hours ago||While questions can be raised||
While questions can be raised about most any fact, a discussion of the most rational reason for his comments leads to one conclusion: it's on this coach. He may be joking. But, if he is serious, this is a unique view not shared by high level coaches. Was Saban afraid of the expectations at Bama? How about Meyer at OSU? (Both coming off bad seasons). How about Sark at USC or Kelly at ND? I am sorry, but concern the job is too hard or your competition is too much is not something you want in your head football coach. Those guys should be brimming with confidence. I may not want that in my housekeeper or barista, but in the sports environment you are a dead man walking if you are fearful of failure.
|6 days 14 hours ago||So you are saying this could||
So you are saying this could be a reflection of the potential candidate or of Michigan? Or a combo in some degree? But you have no idea or reason to know. The only "facts" are that the candidate is concerned about how good Meyer is AND the UM's has expectations to beat OSU. I think the first one is on the coach and not something that a worthy coach would say. The second one is on Michigan, but it doesn't seem like a flaw. Our standards are too high to expect a worthy coach? We need to have lower standards to get a better coach?
|6 days 14 hours ago||What is your question?||
The "reasoning for [the coach's] concerns" are illuminating in what way? The OP says that the coach's concerns are based on competing with Meyer and the expectation to win a share of the games against him.
What does that have to do with "Michigan being Michigan's own problem"?
Are you saying our expcetations are too high, in that we expect to beat OSU more than once every five years? Michigan has a similar quality of player, support and facility. The main difference is the coaching. So, are you arguing we should LOWER expectations for our coaches in order to get a coach "worth having"?
That seems crazy.
I think the exact opposite, that coaches "worth having" by ANY school would not be afraid of a rival coach.
P.S. - I doubt any coach on w Plan B list at Michigan (i.e., quality coach) would say something like the OP recited unless it was tongue and cheek or taken out of context by the telephone game. No quality refuses a big promotion out of fear.
|1 week 12 hours ago||So....||
Does it look like Michigan has hired a PR firm to entice Harbaugh a little? Or maybe just an informal campaign of showing public support?
It is a good idea for all the high profile alums/former coaches/boosters to all come out and say they WANT Harbaugh. It kind of puts a little pressure on him without contacting him directly. Plus, it seems a bit dangerous. If everyone wants him, won't it undermine the next guy? Since there is a risk involved, I don't think UM would have gone on this campaign (if it is orchestrated) without a strong feeling that Harbaugh would be heading to Michigan.
|1 week 14 hours ago||That is one thing I don't||
That is one thing I don't think Hoke understood. It bothered me that he intitally said that "character wins in life and it wins on the football field." I think the second part of that is insanely inaccurate.
|1 week 14 hours ago||Yeah, non-Michigan types and||
Yeah, non-Michigan types and casual Michigan fans might see it as good. But, I think people who care more about the University (I.e. Alums and such) might see it as tarnishing one of the things that makes Michigan special, integrity.
|1 week 14 hours ago||I also think Miles is not a||
I also think Miles is not a good idea. It would be a desperation hire for a school like Michigan (I.e., proud of their character).

Yeah, these 60 year old men know only the last 5 years matter. We suck. Utah is a top job now.
|1 week 1 day ago||That's right. We have to||
That's right. We have to accept a moral loser! We have become a non-historic power with no money to spend on a coach. We barely have any top recruits, attention or resources to attract anyone really good. That seven years ago we got the top name who turned down Bama (RichRod) might as well have been a hundred years ago.
