The question was do you want Harbaugh at Michigan or Oakland.
He only had one possible answer. Its not like he could say Oakland. That would be a disaster. He'd be throwing his own coach under the bus.
Charles certainly knows the game (even outside of his own bubble) but he in no way came across as someone that had the slightest clue what would happen at UM outside of what national media has been saying.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||We don't necessarily||
need it... but if we could get one of these major highly ranked kids to come, I feel like it would open the flood gates... we're playing like North Carolina and Duke at this point... now the kids need to feel like coming here can be just as good.. and as 'cool' as going there.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I realize I'm in the minority||
But I think there should be more bowl games and any schools that can agree on a time or place and get a sponsor, why not? Other than people's eyes, what does it hurt? It's not like anyone is forcing anyone to watch.
Bowl games mean nothing to the grand scheme of the college world. I'm sure the student-athletes would love to play one more game. I'd certainly watch a Michigan game in December, no matter the record.
Teams that are 5-7 shouldn't be denied practice time that other schools get. Clearly the 5-7 teams need that work and have younger guys. This would allow them a few more weeks to see what they have in them. (Brady Hoke jokes aside). The arguement that the other teams earned that practice time and a 5-7 did not, does hold water. BUT... if the 5-7 team plays December 15th... and the 7-5 team plays December 28th... they get extra practice time anyway.
I just don't see what it hurts... kind of like the new CBI tournament in college hoops.

I would. Why not? Especial once the list is narrowed. The money factor is absolutely correct in this article.

Get it signed. He was a '1' and would be a great addition to that ball.

|9 weeks 6 days ago||again||
I never once said Dan would attack or go out of his way to do anything... I'm saying I fail to see how going on a national show and once again facing an interview about most things negative.. helps Brady or Michigan.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||as the OP||
I don't see where I wrote Dan would attack him... never wrote it...never believed he would...
What I'm saying is, the questions will be there and it's a headache that can be avoided... and there's no way Brady is able to sell the good of Michigan football over the bad right now.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I had some people chanting||
I had some people chanting asshole as I walked in... No big deal. Everyone was polite inside the stadium and no one sad a word to my group as we left. Of course it seemed like I was leaving Ann Arbor... Way more Michigan gear than Rutgers gear on the way out........ Then remembered why. They were all still on the field.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||All I can say is I do see||
All I can say is I do see your point in this statement. I wish the line about irrelevant were worded differently, but I can respect your view here
|10 weeks 5 days ago||You make a valid point here.||
You make a valid point here.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I think the point was his||
I think the point was his calling everyone who supports Michigan as a non athletic department irrelevant. So millions of people don't matter. Okay then
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I just.... Can't. I'll just agree to disagree||
I just.... Can't. I'll just agree to disagree

Thanks for posting. I didn't have the nuts to make a new thread. So I just buried it in another.

According to a current player the fans are irrelevant.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, I'm sure I'm taking it||
Yes, I'm sure I'm taking it to seriously... He's not the first 'athlete' to bash fans and won't be the last... And I'm sure I've rooted for some of them... And I'm sure many more feel that way without actually going public with it.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I'm going and now I wish I||
I'm going and now I wish I wasn't. But not because of the obvious reasons, (losing, AD, Hoke). I was going to keep supporting Team135. But when I woke up and read a current player feel the need to get on Twitter and call life-long fans 'irrelevant'. I can't support that. Whether he was obviously just frustrated or not.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, I can hope..||
but realistically there's a lot of people setting themselves up for disappointment.
Anything can happen, but when the day comes and UM introduces its next head coach and it's not this guy? It could just get ugly again.
I just think so many people have this name and this name only in their heads and whoever it ends up being, won't get the chance.... because many will have seen it as a failure from day one... not the guy we really wanted.
I'm probably going to be guilty of that as well... as I look at the names, there's only one that I say I'd be willing to pitch in to get...and that's Jim.
I hope there's some secret formula we can all take that will allow us to be happy with the man who actually takes this job...

|12 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, I don't get it.||
I understand it, frustration and all, but I don't personally, as myself, get it.
I'm a Rams fan in the NFL... So it's been a bad decade for me and football, but it's one of two things I love in this life that doesn't very often happen... I'll leave the other up to imagination.
But a Michigan football game is a Michigan football game. I don't live that way anymore, so spending money normally doesn't happen anyway, but I simply cannot imagine there ever being a time a Michigan football game is on and I'm not watching it.
I am maybe numb to the losing at this point, with the Rams and UM, but I'm going to be in front of my TV, or the following week in the stands at Rutgers with my UM hat and shirt on and rooting for the Maize and Blue to surprise me.
I can do all of that and very much agree that changes need to be made. I can support what's there and will just have to hope that someone smartens up and helps me root for a winner.
But those kids picked a school I love and they go out and bust their asses for it. That to me, says I should support those who love something as much as I do.
(Also, as much as I felt like Utah was going to beat us, I feel we will beat Minny)
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I have no idea what this||
adds to the discussion other than compare contrast...
Living in Central New York, I became a Season Ticket Holder for Orange football... no, not because I care a lick about Syracuse, but because the whole season is $99. Games versus Clemson, Florida State... it's a great deal. No PSL or anything just a straight $99.
We don't really get gifts... we got a free ticket to the home opener this year for each season tickets we had... but that was Villanova.
We also get priority to buy away games and basketball games.. which is good because Syracuse Basketball is NOT Syracuse Football....(Althought I don't root or really care for etiher, it's a great environment for hoops.)
Also the football games really have no re-sale value... because tickets are so cheap to begin with... depsite the Carrier Dome only holding 50K for football.
I realize Syracuse football isn't Michigan football, but I thought I'd share what another school does.

tickets to Sweet 16 and Elite 8 games at the Carrier Dome for next year.
My track record suggests Michigan will NOT be playing in the East.

|37 weeks 1 day ago||The emotional||
attachment to Tracy, the mother. You couldn't get emotionally attached... that was on purpose. If you got emotionally attached to the mother, you'd feel differently about the fact this whole show was about Ted finally getting to be with Robin.
If everyone fell in love with Tracy, the ending, planned years in advance, would have been ruined.
People are killing this finale and I get the whole wedding theme was dragged on beyond belief, but there's NO way this show could have ended with Ted and the mother happily ever after. It would have gone against everything the show had done for however long it was on.
This show was always going to end with Ted and Robin together and it happened. I will never get why critics killed last night.

the AP had updated its website.

There was nothing to link other than the information I have due to my job.
