Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Curious as to his status here. Listed as probable but I can't recall any news on him one way or another, maybe that's how we get to probable. I'd like to see him stay since he seems to be a good recruiter with the right attitude. Also, any update on S&T? Is it definitely 9ers assistant mentioned yesterday? I was under the impression that a staff would roughly be announced today since the first team meeting is today if I'm not mistaken.

Is critical if they hope to get something going. Have to beat "inferior" teams and let one go in ugly way at Purdue. I'd love to see the ship righted and momentum shift. Gem lacks confidence me leadership. Wins breed confidence.

If he's obtainable then he deserves a long look. As for asst coaches, I wonder if Coach is just waiting for a mass introduction versus a "here are 2-3 guys while I try to fill out staff." A touch bummed about marrow/turley news but hope/suspect alternatives are in same realm of quality.

Obvious ties to past as reason to bring him in, has Ty proven to be a capable coach? I mean, love the guy, but that alone doesn't make him the right coach for this staff, no?

Over everybody though I know there's no chance. That old Barwis post is incredible

But huge props go to Brian and MGo staff for being on top of the Harbaugh search process from the get go. No other site/sources where anywhere near as consistently accurate and close/confident in the story as Brian and crew. It's insight like that which makes this site a must read and go to source for all things Michigan. Much respect!

I could be the moron using an old version of the app. Always possible when you're wrapped up in Harbaugh consumption for a month. I'll check.

I know everyone has been ultra busy but once things settle, the iPad version of the sites app still has "Hoke Springs Eternal" backsplash. Just wanted to mention it.

Will probably be the best day in Michigan football since the national title. There have been exciting times since then, the Denard first night game may come close, but few things can elicit the type of hype that Harbaugh brings. Overjoyed, assuming this goes off as planned, which I am still waiting to make sure he signs on the line which is dotted! Much props to Hackett are in order. Go Fing Blue!

Oakland, they suck and there is clear established leader in afc west in Denver..i.e., probably the most monumental task available to him.

I love Michigan and the blog or I wouldn't be here. That said, there is a bit of the don't let the door hit your ass on the way out mentality too often at times. I was particularly disgusted with the treatment of Brandon during this year in particular when the main thing that really mattered was a poorly coached football team. Game day experience is great when team wins for the large part. The blaming of Brandon more so than Hoke was particularly disturbing.

I'll respect you in the morning blast. Touché.

So we wish him well but as of today the guy will do nothing in the nfl. I expect little to zero impact as a rook. Perhaps if he lands in right spot he can become much more in time. As of today, I simply don't see it. It is no surprise he's leaving but also clearly could use another year. A host of kids with less talent have made similar choice so just hope it works out. Go Blue.

I don't see mora winning the games that matter, OSU/MSU, often enough here if hired. Just a hunch. He'd be an option if we swung and missed elsewhere.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Thank you||
For the post that literally has me welling up. And to the under appreciated j-mo, for all the reasons u touched on. His dunk v Syracuse was so gratifying to me as a fan and had to have been euphoric for him. Just epic.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Problem here...||
Is how they were supposed to miss Novak/Douglass leadership last year and look how that turned out. We all appreciate j-mo but have faith my friend!!!

My call for the game was Michigan 72-64, then I saw a first half which was among the worst 20 minutes a team could play. Then I looked up and saw we were within 4. Amazing. OSU offense is mind bogglingly pathetic. We played a great final 14 minutes or so. Kudos to us. This team has been a revelation all year.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||There's no doubt||
We need a new coach. A real coach and not a figurehead. A guy who has input on offensive play calling. Hoke has been a plus recruiter but you have to be able to coach too. I still believe Brandon screwed over RR. Hoke went 11-2 with his kids and has been declining since as we regress to Lloyd like boring brand of football.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Caris!!!||
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Question is not..||
Did he make the right choice, cause when it comes to football of course he did, but would things have been different if Hoke and Michigan were winning in the last 6 weeks? How much did our obvious regression/lack of progress/questionable future come into play in Hand's choice? Perhaps we'll never know.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||One thing missed||
Was how good of a coach is Hoke? The recruiting seems to be going swimmingly and in college that's probably the key factor, but strategy also plays a role. This was lightly noted but I think that remains the bigger question mark. Is Brady a good to elite level hc? If so, we're in great hands.

Congratulations on a successful interview. Insightful, engaging, open, a real treat for us all. Thanks.

Pistons asked to interview him but NBA said no since they control the interviews. Also, yeah feel same about Pistons and Chauncey.
