|20 hours 6 min ago||I thought Saban and Les were already making more||
At least IIRC there were a few guys in the 6 million a year range at that time
|1 day 3 hours ago||Did you know||
That if you twist one of your e's into a u, and the other into an h, your name is an anagram of Harbaugh?
|1 day 4 hours ago||Nah||
Still more work in college. Acquiring players is just a much more time consuming task in CFB than it is in the NFL.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Sorry if this is out of line, but here's some wild ass speculati||
This feels like the kind of article that gets written when some big wig see's the "48 Million Dollar" report on TV and calls the office saying "I just saw an obscenely large number next to a dollar sign on Sportscenter, get the sports econ dude on this!" which then causes him to get on real quick and stretch 2 regurgitated talking points into an article because there isn't any real sports econ story here.
Not that he's necessarily wrong, Harbaugh might stay in the NFL for those reasons, it just seems lazily written and out of this guys wheelhouse
|3 days 3 hours ago||P.J. Fleck is the name you were looking for||
Row the dang boat
|4 days 18 hours ago||How much does he put into the dolphins?||
It's not like owning an NFL team is cheap
|4 days 19 hours ago||Too smart for his own good?||
Christ you sound like Skip Bayless with that
|1 week 4 hours ago||Don't diss Wet Herrera||
The greatest coach in the history of organized sports
|1 week 4 hours ago||They are 20 million over the cap next year||
So they take this team, which is already relatively old and not that good, and dump 20 million in salary, plus either the money to pay their picks or the picks themselves in the draft.
They are going to win maybe 7 games then have to flat out cut starters this off season. They are a tire fire
|1 week 9 hours ago||I can see it now||
"Jim, before I take this job, there's one thing I absolutely have to do. I'm gonna need your plane, I'm going to need the entirety of my contract, in full, in non sequential peso's, 20 pounds of rotel and velveeta, and one of those bomb suits. Yeah, like from the hurt locker"
|1 week 9 hours ago||He's a GIANT improvement defensively||
going from the worst OF in the game to Cespedes is a huge upgrade, and he's at least as good offensively as Hunter
|1 week 9 hours ago||That might be bullshit||
He's not coming to Michigan, but New Orleans is going to be a trainwreck next year, and he's just watching it slowly crash. It wouldn't absolutely shock me if he took another NFL job because he doesnt' want to be stuck in rebuild mode
|1 week 10 hours ago||Yes||
It was 3. You can get Simon's production off the damn scrap heap, you don't need to be trading players for it.
|1 week 10 hours ago||He's hot ass garbage||
He was incredibly lucky over the first half of last year, he's much more the guy who had a 4.5 era in the second half of the year. That is hot ass garbage in the NL.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Was Harbaugh at Stanford for 11 years?||
Or are you just gonna ignore that part of it?
|1 week 2 days ago||You could make it about the product too||
They have been extra terrible lately. The fact that they even published the Dr. Football bullshit shows where they are
|1 week 3 days ago||Much like the 49'ers O-line||
I failed to properly execute, and have double posted.
|1 week 3 days ago||O-line regression is probably the biggest culprit||
They went from being probably the best unit in football to not very good at all in a year. Without that killer run game defenses have been able to key in on Kaepernick, and though he's a very good QB, he's not in the class of guys who can beat you even if you gameplan entirely around stopping them.
|1 week 3 days ago||To steal a line from PFT_Commenter||
this is about teling not speling smh
|1 week 3 days ago||Sorry||
But local papers aren't going to stop covering a coaching search at a Michigan out of common courtesy.
|1 week 5 days ago||I follow him on Twitter||
It's absolutely fascinating. He's not dumb, he's fairly well versed in like, the space program, he's relatively religious, he has a warped up in depth knowledge of history.
Like, one second he's saying how ridiculous it is that someone thinks we faked the moon landing, and his next tweet is about how aliens built the pyramids.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Stephen Ross doesn't either||
I'll be he's got some say though. Just because you don't have a job title doesn't mean you have zero influence on the decisions made by the university, and there are ways to buy that influence other than cash.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I was at the Oregon game||
It wasn't all sunshine and fucking rainbows
|2 weeks 2 days ago||He's not Hoke||
He's Ferentz. If you gave Ferentz what Harbaugh left Shaw, I'm convinced the exact same thing would have happened. Terrible game manager, archaic offense. It works if you can absolutely destroy up front, which Ferentz has been able to do every 3 or 4 years when he develops a full O-line together, and Shaw had when he was left with what remained of the Harbaugh O-lineman, but it's not a great strategy.
Shaw isn't a bad coach, and he could probably get Michigan to be what Nebraska was under Pelini due to the slight recruiting advantage he would have over Ferentz, but I'm not thrilled about hiring a guy who probably has a ceiling of what just got Nebraska's coach fired.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The lid won't be as tight||
It just can't be, there are too many moving parts in a coaching search. No one outside of Schembechler hall and the search firm Hackett has been talking to needed to know about this news, and even then he could have kept his forays into looking for a coach vague enough that no one would come forward as a strong source.
This is different though, you're going to have to have much more direct conversations with interested parties, and those parties are well outside of Hackett's control at the moment. Harbaugh, Miles, Mullen, every candidate he talks to that would seriously consider the job is going to tell someone. Whether that be Harbaugh or Miles talking it over with family/friends to try to come to a decision or Mullen going to his AD to see if he can't get a contract to match what Michigan is willing to pony up, there will be loose ends that can't be tied off.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The results are in!||
And it looks like the Michigan faithful have elected.... The muppets..... The muppets are going to coach Michigan....
Animal would be a hell of a recruiting coordinator. He's basically a slightly more hairy Coach O.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Schiano is literally last on my list||
Like, I'm reaching out to Howard Schnellenberger before Schiano.
He might be ahead of O'Neal, actually.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What was that old nickname for the big ten?||
Big 2, little 8? Remember that?
Take out the stuff before forward passing was invented and Nebraska is on even footing with Michigan.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Stop it with your filthy facts||
Those are only allowed when they confirm our beliefs in old school man football! Defense! Run the ball!
Also would love to point out that was facing a conference that might not have a single offense as bad as half of the big ten
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hes constantly putting up crazy offensive numbers||
I mean maybe he is a one side of the ball guy, but he's more than one play. The dude knows offense and is well respected in the coaching community. Just because he's not a great candidate for Michigan right now doesn't make him "lol basically a high school coach with one play"
