Happy merry fishnuts from the City! Eighth Xmas living in SF, first I actually spent here.

Whoa did you see that baby M diaper baby fan shot? Love crowd shots. One fan sign said "go blue Reed City". I once lived in the northern part of the state, In Evart near Reed City. That is a remarkable name check in sunny arroyo seco on a January day in 1989.

From experience I can say with some confidence that when Michigan plays SC in the Rose Bowl, in Pasadena, those blowhards comprising 64 percent of the crowd and rooting for SC are as LA as you could possibly get.

Update: 1989 Rose Bowl game is on next. When I lived in LA I spent at least 25 hours arguing with SC types about this game and its meaning

Fucking I fucking hate LA. Yet I love the Rose Bowl. That place is sacred despite the fakes and bandits that compound the surrounding environs

I have not bought into the idea Harbaugh may be coming. Not yet. But the last loss helped M's chances. NFL teams are not likely to start a bidding war over a 7-9, 8-8 coach. That Michigan offer looks better by the day v

That flat out sucked. My M loyalties by far outstrip my Niners rooting interest. But there is no redeeming edge to that loss. It just hurts Harbaugh's legacy. Better that he went out a winner.

Sonofa.... This is exactly how the Niners season has gone. Blown leads on fluke plays.

It's about control. The GM wants job security. The CEO Jed York wants credibility, and wants to be treated like he's in charge. Sadly for Niners fans, York is a thirty something stoogie whose family owns the team, and is less qualified than anyone I the front office to make football decisions.

Niners are wasting these mopes. Firing off the ball. Harbaugh playing for pride.

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.
