This excites me more than recruiting. The idea that some of our guys will reach their potential or exceed it is why I think we will be world beaters going forward. Harbaugh will recruit at a level he has never been able to recruit at before. Then he will coach them up, and we will be a problem for just about anybody.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||The non-league schedule||
The non-league schedule really worries me. Utah, BYU, and Oregon State are a problem. I think we will be 2-2 in non-league and end up 7-5 or 8-4.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||It's my birthday, and I'm||
It's my birthday, and I'm drinking everything. Today was the best present ever. Jim Harbaugh was my favorite player growing up. The first game I ever remember watching was when they beat the Buckeyes in 1986 when I was 9 years old. Today was a great day.

Suh's play has been so good on the field this year, but that was just flat out stupid. I can't even defend him. Especially, after the Lions center was suspended just the week before for a similar act. Suh probably just played his last game in a Lions uniform as well. Cowboys will probably run wild on Detroit now. Oh well, I still riding the Harbaugh wave of happiness and will be for the forseeable future.
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||I think he will will catch a||
I think he will will catch a lot of criticism whether it is fair or not. If he would have said no from the get go, people would have understood. This has drug out so long that if he turns down job, a lot of people are going to go bonkers. I'm not saying it is fair or unfair, just that he may end up being the villain to the majority.

I enjoy getting presents for the kids more than anything. I purchased the Millenium Falcon lego set for my nephew. He is going to lose his mind when he sees it. It is over 1200 pieces and guaranteed to cause my brother great pain as he will have to put it together on Christmas morning.
Secretly, I'm looking forward to playing with it as well.

I like Mora but am surpirsed that he would be interested in job being a West Coast guy. I hope his name isn't just wild speculation. I'm worried Harbaugh drags this out and then decides to stay in NFL, Mullen signs an extension and we end up with someone like Schiano.
There is no reason for us not to end up with a great coach. All the other jobs other than OSU have been filled and we are literally competing with no one. All viable candidates are still in play
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Hard to say, but the rumor||
Hard to say, but the rumor was the Browns were close to getting him last year and the reported offer was two 3rd round picks
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Does anyone think the Oakland||
Does anyone think the Oakland job may look more appealing to him after today? They have Derek Carr and a high draft pick coming, and I'm assuming they would give him total control over personnel.
I don't really believe anything I just typed, but I want to prepare myself mentally in case Coach Harbaugh doesn't find his way back to Ann Arbor.

2 Dogfish head 90 min IPA. I'm done drinking until the 15th now. Grand Rapids has the Midwest Regional Cyclocross Championships next weekend. and I don't want to totally get embarrassed.

I had 2 Dogfish head 90 min IPA and then I took "a nap". Saturdays have become a weekly groin kick.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||This may be the most||
This may be the most interesting information in regard to the coaching search that I've read in days. Information drives those lines. It makes me wonder if someone knows something. At least I'm going to tell myself that.
|8 weeks 18 hours ago||Mullen has been my favorite||
Mullen has been my favorite non-Harbaugh hire since Day 1. I would be gushing with excitement if he was the hire.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I always thought it was a||
I always thought it was a long shot, but I was starting to believe Harbaugh might actually take the job. It will be an interesting next couple of weeks either way.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I voted Mullen, but if it is||
I voted Mullen, but if it is someone other than Harbaugh, Mullen or Miles I'm going to be disappointed unless it is some super surprise like Chip Kelly or something equally crazy.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Interesting, but too much of||
Interesting, but too much of a risk. I do find it impressive that he was associate head coach and recruiting coordinator for Meyer at Florida. A guy like this probably has to go to Cinci or somewhere like that before getting a Power 5 Conference job.

Red Wine...Sadly I've been drinking so much I've been buying it in a box. Football season was rough but happy times are ahead
|8 weeks 2 days ago||If you aren't getting||
If you aren't getting Harbaugh, and Miles is out because he has burnt too many bridges then you better give Mullen the full court press to be the next coach. I
Prior to his hiring at Mississippi State, Mullen served as offensive coordinator at the University of Florida and was also alongside Urban Meyer at Utah, where he was quarterback coach of the Utes during their undefeated 2004 season. He developed quarterback Alex Smith into the number 1 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. After Urban Meyer left to take the head coaching position at Florida, Mullen served as the interim offensive coordinator during Utah's Fiesta Bowl victory over Pitt. During his tenure at Utah, he also recruited and partially developed Brian Johnson, QB who led Utah to 13–0 and Sugar Bowl victory in 2009. He also served as quarterback coach under Meyer at Bowling Green in 2001–02.
Mullen better get a call from our AD
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Lewis was amazing this year.||
Lewis was amazing this year. He was the one guy in the secondary that always showed up. I'm excited he will be back next year.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Rivalry games are always||
Rivalry games are always weird. I honestly thought Mullen was a viable candidate 3 years ago when Rich Rod was let go. That MSU team won 9 games and totally embarrassed us. There aren't many worse jobs than MSU in the SEC (Vanderbilt and Kentucky) and he has been quite successful. He is could be the next Urban Meyer which may make him more or less viable as a candidate in the boards eyes. I would kill to have Meyer as a head coach personally despite the fact I'm sure it isn't a popular opinion.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I would prefer Mullen to||
I would prefer Mullen to Miles as the #2 choice, but would be happy to have Miles. He would bring some energy, recruit his ass off and get us back on track.
I like Mullen's offense a lot. The fact that he is a Meyer disciple make me want him even more sadly. I was so impressed with what OSU did with Barrett this year. I think the offense is very QB friendly. The spread those guys run is really lethal. Like I said though, I would be ecstatic with Miles.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Our offense is completely||
Our offense is completely different with Johnson out of the game.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||That sucks, Barrett is just a||
That sucks, Barrett is just a hell of a player.

I have a 45 mile commute one way. This is basically hell. I will be spending a lot of time in the car today.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||There are a lot of bad things||
There are a lot of bad things in sports, but sometimes you get to see something so great it reminds you why you love watching kids play a game. It doesn't always have to be misery and agony every second. It was nice to get a reminder of that.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||The O-line wasn't bad at all||
The O-line wasn't bad at all tonight, and they have been much better this year. Gardner is broken.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Defense played great, but I||
Defense played great, but I think they wore down at the end a little after being on the field all night. Frank Clark was beast tonight though.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Why does Gardner get to stay||
Why does Gardner get to stay in the game when he makes mistake after mistake? His last interception was ridiculous. We could have won this game by 4 Td's. Gardner is killing us. I like the kid, and I'm sure some of you will say he is best option but I would prefer to see the other options.

This is brutal. The only reason I came here is because I need a break from the official game thread.
|13 weeks 20 hours ago||I always wonder how different||
I always wonder how different things would have been it Casteel came with him from West Virginia. I liked Shafer a lot but him and Rich Rod didn't mesh for some reason. It doesn't matter now, but his offenses were a lot of fun to watch. Those defenses were a crime against humanity though.
