Agree with some of your response, but I do think the "revolving door" of the college atmosphere has to be noted with this. New guys are constantly going to be moving in and old guys will constantly be moving out, including your best players. Just think the potential for this is much more limited than in the NFL.

I got deferred when I applied and it was absolutely the worst. Not even joking when I say that it took a lot of joy out of Christmas break that year. However, if you do get in, the joy is still there. Hold out hope!

The unfortunate thing that I can see happening is if Harbaugh turns down Michigan for an NFL job and everybody assumes he was "stringing Michigan along." That's certainly a possibility, but there is a decision too. I think separating that is going to be hard for people because the effect on fans will be the same on whether he turns us down for the right or the wrongs reasons.

Funny things also showing up in Ann Arbor with a new parking spot for Jim Harbaugh:

Wow, I can't believe a program with a huge reputation nationally and the biggest stadium in North American pays its coaches at an elite level!
|1 week 6 days ago||The only way this works is if||
The only way this works is if you reduce the number of games in the regular season, move many of the neutral games to campus sites, and try to work toward giving the conferences more control. Still, you're talking about the potential of an 18(!!!) game season for a team like Wisconsin that makes the Big Ten championship game and loses. That's 6 more games than a team like Michigan would play that fails to make a bowl game. That is such a huge discrepancy. The only way I can really see them getting beyond 16 is making the conferences bigger and making those essentially a first round.

Enfold has struggled at USC, but so have a ton of people there. A lot of people were going after him though so that's a pretty solid hire from their end.

Right now, I would take Ricky Doyle over Jon Horford and Doyle is not even the starter of our team. Horford has his moments and has his skillset, but with our small ball lineup, I would rather have a devastating big man down low.
Plus, if you actually think Horford would have slowed down Kaminsky ... yeah. He certainly cannot handle him in the low post as he gets pushed off the block and Horford was mediocre at best at hedging defense.
Horford looks much better at Florida than he ever did in Ann Arbor, but I think we might be getting carried away with how that would transfer to our team.

Time to start a new thread titled, "But what if Hoke stays?"
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Obviously, if this report is||
Obviously, if this report is true, that's a huge blow as Jim Harbaugh would have been the best hire for the job. Even if you are not as high on Harbaugh, I don't think there is a guy out there who would be more universally approved by the fans and media. He literally is/was the home run hire.
Having said that, if he does not want to come to Ann Arbor, I think it's at least a positive that he let them know earlier rather than later.

If they're serious about going after Harbaugh, they need to drag out the evaluation of Hoke for at least a week. Maybe more.

This. Trey Burke not only deserves to be Top 5 on this list, but he is probably above that.

You say John, but I say it's Jim and that's who I prefer.

Wow, considering this, our team would be unbeatable!!! Oh wait, this only assumes we - and nobody else - getg to keep NBA departures. This is a fun game to play until you realize a lot of other schools lose NBA guys too. Indiana would still have Noah Vonleh and Cody Zeller.

Imagine if they had done something like only put 10 players on the field for a special teams TD.

Swim. Did swim in high school and have always loved it. Plus our program is elite which makes watching even easier.

Combo of both. Michigan isn't a great basketball talent state to begin with, but there has been some guys. James Young is an example, but he never considered Michigan.

FYI to all the players. Feel privileged people care enough about your team and/or program that this can happen. Fans aren't paid to pay attention to a team that hasn't won a championship in a decade.

Not meant as a dig to you but I keep hearing this. The top half of the northeast side of the stadium is not the student section. They didn't sell enough student tickets to fill it. Maybe it doesn't matter but I think it's worth noting as people want to rip on the students for bad attendance. Also the game was freezing.

|7 weeks 2 days ago||I have been a big proponent||
I have been a big proponent of mid-season firings for quite some time. A lot of people disagree with this opinion - and for legitimate reasons - but I largely think the positives are outweighed by the negatives. You get all the negativity out of your program, let people enjoy what they can out of the current season and get in early on the biggest candidates.
Having said that, I'm not sure that's the best option anymore. I think the image has completely changed with Brandon leaving. You can already sense a lot of the fire leaving. The other part of this is that we need to find an AD now. Managing two major personnel searches at once is going to be challenging and I would rather have the new guy manage the coaching one when he gets here. Don't let an interim AD manage or mismanage this.

Yeah, fans hate beating Top 5 teams. Get Miles out.

Honest question. Do you view him as a buffoon in terms of off the field antics and all the drama surrounding his team or in terms of an actual coach. I'm not advocating for him by any means, but I think he's one heck of a coach, especially defensively.

Does our team ever try to prove anything on the field anymore or do they just prefer stupid antics that just blow up their face all the time?

You knows what's a DB move? Having a team so bad a team can just phone in a TD at the end of a game that is nowhere close to in doubt.

Who cares about Hoke? We should be pressuring for Brandon out.
