|4 days 6 min ago||I doubt that. Holding the||
I doubt that. Holding the rights to Harbaugh isn't just valuable to the 49ers because there's trade value (and I'd imagine that value is still there). It also gives them veto power over where he goes. When you're firing one of the best coaches in football over personality conflicts, preserving that veto power is important, because you know there's a good chance that his next team succeeds and makes you look bad.
If this is true - and it'd be nice to have more than an unsourced tweet - then I think it strongly suggests that Harbaugh told the 49ers he's leaving the NFL.

Taking this one step further, with coaches' egos being what they are, it wouldn't surprise me if most of them want to see their new teams give up a lot in return just as a visible demonstration of the coach's value.

All I know is that my iPhone autocorrect now changes words spelled in the general proximity of Harbaugh to "Harbaugh." Pretty soon I'll have used that word in so many texts that Apple will change every word to Harbaugh, just assuming (/knowing) that's what I mean.

Has Jason La Canfora really reached initials status for a thread title? I had no damn idea who or what JLC is.

Then why are we not sharing this? Credibility issue? Paywall? Something else?

Don't feel bad. I'm so old that mine came via horse and stagecoach. I was living out west at the time, and many great men and horses were lost as they braved the Rockies during that hard, hard winter to bring Mother and me the good news.

I'm confused. Which part isn't true? Or is he saying the whole thing isn't true? And if he is saying that, how the hell would he know? Did he call Verizon (or North Korea) and get phone records?

I might have posted this earlier, but I love how Ace Williams stories have been around for like seven years and we've assumed he's a high school kid the whole time. Then again, if it'll take anyone that long to get through high school, it's probably Ace Williams.
|6 days 14 hours ago||The site is obviously||
The site is obviously garbage, but haven't we been saying that guy's a high school kid for like seven years now? It's like he's one of the Simpsons: does not age.

False. People had it backwards. It's 48 years for $6 million, not 6 years for $48 million.

Yeah, I'm not buying it either. Hopefully most of the sources feeding Brian and the other Michigan media positive Harbaugh news look more credible than this guy.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Michigan hate sells.||
Michigan hate sells. Honestly. If you write a scathing article about how MSU sucks, cheats, etc., no one will read it, because no one gives a shit. On the other hand, people eat up those kinds of stories about Michigan, Notre Dame, USC, Texas, and a few other schools. You can make a career off of attacking a school like Michigan, especially if you have the added credibility of being an alumnus.

The national media has been an absolute joke with this, almost to a man. Take a look at si.com right now. There are two stories. This might be the dumbest thing written so far about this search. And yet it's appearing just a few headlines under this, which offers a clear explanation of why the "MUST READ" J.P. Scott story is dumb as hell.
We've gotten really good coverage throughout this search from our Ann Arbor-based UM media. The Detroit media has been pretty slow and quiet; the rest of the media has been shit.

I think the incentive for Harbaugh to keep Michigan around for his NFL negotations is even stronger than that. Let's say that Harbaugh wants to go to the Raiders and the 49ers really want compensation for Harbaugh.
JH: Trade me to the Raiders.
49ers: No. You can go to the Jets, Bears, or Falcons. They're all offering way more than the Raiders. We won't sign off on a Raiders trade, because you're worth more than that.
JH: Okay, then I'm going to Michigan and you get nothing.
49ers: Fine, asshole, Raiders it is.

|1 week 1 day ago||Here's mine: Miles is the||
Miles is the actual fallback plan. He knows that and he's okay with it, partly because Hackett is being honest with him (and partly because of course he's a backup plan to Harbaugh). Hackett told him that things with Harbaugh look promising. Miles knew he'd be asked about at his press conference and didn't want to get hammered by follow-up questions... on camera... so he issued a firm-seeming "not happening" that no one will ever see.

I don't think there's much reason to believe that Michigan doesn't have a backup plan. Just that the backup plan isn't known to us.

I've literally never seen a post as out of character for the poster as this one. Is there sarcasm here? Aren't you the guy who complains when people express sympathy for the victims of shootings and natural disasters?

I think Hoke is such a decent guy that he might do it, but I would hope that no one asks him to. His removal has been handled pretty respectfully so far and there's no reason to change that.
