I have said it before and I'll say it again. I absolutely love how Harbaugh does the business. Totally different, out of the box. Totally the new generation. His personality is simply larger than than life itself and the quirkiness of it all is just the added spice to it. Today you have to cater to more than just the parent. More than just academics and taking care of their son. You have to know who BigSean is, you have to stand out to these kids and not be Joe Recruiter in a suit and tie and be bland as hell. You make that kid think that "Damn I want to play for that guy!"
Saying all that, however, the edge of awesome to overdone is a very fine line. And once you approach saturation then the act wears thin, and quickly.
But I'll sit back and enjoy it all because you just can't make this stuff up, unless your name is Jim Harbaugh.

All I am doing is laying out what is to be considered. Are you a traditional Michigan or Notre Dame (2 schools I feel do it the right way) fan or are you ready to swallow the SEC Shady 101 manual? Doesn't matter to me. And in regards to Valenti he has stated fully that he believes that MSU needs to do this in order to compete. The question then becomes, are the leaders of your school ready to jump as well?

The process of gaining committments by lesser ranked recruits only to bump them out when a better alternative comes along. And its not just "A" recruit. Specifically speaking on Harbaugh here, he did this at Stanford as well. I am not condemning the practice or judging anyone here. College football has become a business and fan bases just want their teams to win.

Outside fan base opinion:
The bottom line is that, and as much as you guys hate Valenti he is right, if you want to compete with Alabamas and OSUs some sketchy stuff is going to happen. You just have to roll with it and accept the winning. Or condemn the staff and distance yourself from it.

Randy Moss is best known as finishing 3rd in a Heisman ballot in 1997? Interesting. I could have sworn he was famous for his "Straight Cash Homie" quote.

Lets just end the charade and make four 16 team conferences, or eight 8 team conferences. Realistically there are maybe 20 programs that can compete for players to play at the level needed to win a NC so 64 includes the also-rans who run a great season from time to time. Lets face it, the EMUs and SanJoseSts don't ever have a chance to do that.

With an ND fans perspective I can't see how you can say that? The guy has been a winner everywhere he has gone. While this year was taste of things to come clearly after the OSU debacle he has his work cut out for him. I have no doubt it will get done.
Its like people on ND message boards who want Kelly gone. Who can you think of right now that will come in and do a better job? Like I mean seriously consider coming in. Its not Saban, Meyer or anyone of their ilk. So who? If your head coach isn't solid right now you'll be flapping in the wind for years. There just isn't that many elite coaches out there.
