I am sure Hackett has had other candidates vetted and is prepared to move forward. Really we are exactly where we have always been: it is Harbaugh's decision whether to stay in the NFL or coach Michigan, and he has not made it yet.

Yes! He is much worse. He is not a pundit. He has no credibility or industry relationships. And he is not accountable to anyone.

Ha. Yep. And the Lakers, even (perhaps especially, because drahmah?) when they stink.

Right, but that's exactly my point. Why is college football king in SEC country? Because in places like Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, and Florida (outside Miami) there either are not NFL teams, or they are not very good. The national media has a heavy east coast slant (where NFL rulez), and the west coast media has an NFL slant.
What is lost on a lot of people on this board is that for Harbaugh to come to Michigan would be practically unheard of. Seth posted a very good survey of NFL coaches who went back to college, and I think Wannstadt was really the only guy who left the NFL to go back to his alma mater. But he was not a hot prospect, and had no NFL options. If Harbaugh does come, it would really speak to just how special the University of Michigan is. I don't care if the rest of the country, or the media, doesn't understand. It is only important, for these purposes, that Jim Harbaugh does.

I think the prevailing view is that Harbaugh is an NFL guy, and the League is the pinnacle of the sport. Since the Jordan Bulls disbanded, the NFL is the dominant form of sporting entertainment.

He will respond that he is preparing the football team that he is coaching for the next game that it is playing. And we, as Michigan fans, would not want it any other way.

So I thought about this some more, and maybe it is actually good news. Here is what ocurred to me. The offer Michigan made Jim Harbaugh would make him not only the highest paid college coach, but NFL coach as well. It appears calculated to beat Payton, currently the highest paid guy, who makes $8 million. Michigan could have leaked this, as part of a "shock and awe" compaign to scuttle any potential trade.

No. Let JH do it his way, finishing out the season if that is what he wants to do. How is Michigan hurt by waiting?

Well, we could provide you analysis about how to run your laundromat more profitably, based on a review of industry data and your books. That has value.

Surely, even an economics professor at Webster University should know that you do not factor in variables such as JH's brother winning the Super Bowl into an economic analysis. Plus, JH would have staff to help him with recruiting and compliance; the costs case is overblown. The primary tasks he ascribes to NFL head coaches (reviewing tape) are actually done by assistants.

We'll have to wait at least eleven days to know a response. Knowing Jim Harbaugh, he is going to coach the last two games before he determines anything.
|2 days 11 hours ago||No, it's not necessarily a||
No, it's not necessarily a bad sign that it was leaked. Here is my take.
You all are losing sight of what Harbaugh has told his team and the media: there is still a lot to play for in this season. Harbaugh is not the type of guy to say that, and then walk out on his team. He really means shit like that, and he will finish the season focused on that goal. He is going to finish the year, and ONLY THEN is he is going to make a decision.
It is not likely that either he or Michigan leaked this. I would bet that someone in the 49ers caught wind of it and leaked it. Part of their attempt to put together a trade. The 49ers are in worse shape if they wait until 12/28 to try to do a deal; only the 49ers benefit from the information being out, as potential trade counterparts can factor it in to deliberations.

That comment about the grass being greener doesn't cut Michigan's way. He's been in the NFL, Michigan is the "other side."

Sharp trolls his own people though. Most folks in the Bay Area, especially our prison population, want to hear what this guy is saying. But not me. I want Ray Ratto to eat him.

I've covered this before--Ray Ratto should eat him.

Yeah he's a good college QB who will be holding a clipboard in the NFL for several years. That's better than a lot of guys get. But nothing more than that.
