You're missing her point. Harbaugh will not be swayed by a fan video, and if he was, we should question his judgment. And everyone knows Harbaugh does not read mgoblog. We should be concerned about looking desperate to everyone else in the outside world. Plus, it's just as asinine to think Harbaugh would actually watch said video as it is to think he frequents this blog.

Or, we could let the man make the decision for himself while not looking like a bunch of crazed, creepy stalkers.
EDIT: This comment isn't directed at this post specifically, just the overall level of craziness going on around here lately. Looking into the sales of family members' houses? Really? If I were a potential coach that sort of thing would turn me off.
This fanbase is looking crazier by the day.

I know perfectly well what critical thinking means. Telling someone to fuck off after they made the clearly right decision for themselves is not critical thinking. It's an emotional (and pointless) response to an understandable course of action.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Here you||
Here you go:
Seriously. Think about what you said. You want to tell kids to "fuck off" because they did not remain committed to an underperforming football team without a head coach?
Really? You deserve to be lambasted. Perhaps you didn't make the comment maliciously, but it shows a severe lack of critical thinking skills and empathy on your part.

Yeah, anyone with the audacity to look out for their own future and make smart decisions can go fuck themselves.

The ESPN Schefter interview a few minutes ago was.... odd. That, following a couple of days ago where ESPN "insider" stated that it's PLAUSIBLE that Harbaugh is the number one target for Michigan over Jay Gruden. Go home ESPN, you're drunk.

Urban Meyer doesn't need to talk about academics - he has signs.

"it's reasonable to believe that (Harbaugh) could be the school's No. 1 coaching target, even ahead of Gruden."
This gif also applies if you pay for said service.

Right. Unless you're Jim Harbaugh, I don't know why anyone supporting him going to Ann Arbor is encouraging at this point. It's not up to anyone else.

This makes me feel like I'm playing Age of Empires...
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't think it's dumb in||
I don't think it's dumb in the sense that you don't want to be wasting time trying to woo him while you could be pursuing other options if he feels that he is unlikely to accept. It would be dumb if the ultimatum was before his season ended, though.

|1 week 3 days ago||Maybe I overstepped by saying||
Maybe I overstepped by saying "anything resembling a spread."
And you're right, many offenses use spread concepts nowadays. This is where we get into the distinction of what is a spread and what is not a spread.
The point that I was arguing against is that some people around here seem to think that a read option Rich Rod offense is necessary to win. It is not. Look at Bama, MSU, LSU, Wisconsin, Georgia, Georgia Tech, etc.
I am not advocating against the spread itself, but I am advocating against the belief that there is a single way to win.
|1 week 3 days ago||Nearly half of the teams in||
Nearly half of the teams in the top 25 don't run anything resembling a spread.
I'm all for being at the forefront and having an updated attack, but the notion that you need a Rich Rod style offense to win is demonstratively false. Look no further than the number 1 team in the playoffs.
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't see your point.||
I don't see your point. Harbaugh is not going to come to Michigan and run the spread. Especially not with the set of QBs we have right now.
The "21st century football" mantra needs to die. Teams can - and do - win with many different styles of football.

Good thing we aren't in the Legends division anymore. That would just be confusing.
|1 week 4 days ago||or||
You can hope for him to do well, and for Michigan to do well. Everybody wins. If Michigan is winning I doubt anyone will care whose "fault" it was.
|1 week 4 days ago||Why does anyone think that||
Why does anyone think that Schiano is anywhere NEAR the top of the list of candidates that Hackett's has on his board? Random hearsay from people not inside the program does not mean much at all at this point, and there is no logical reason that Hackett's would even be considering Schiano right now.

Isn't it funny that you have to watch commercials for a service you pay $100+ a month for?

I hope what you're saying is true, but if you don't mind, can you elaborate on how you are hearing these things and from whom?
|1 week 5 days ago||Point number 4 was what I was||
Point number 4 was what I was looking for. Of course I know that no team can play itself, but my point is that OSU improved the SOS of everyone else in the conference, which provided them a benefit in SOS that they didn't see themselves.
But you are right, that one game in everyone else's SOS does not contribute all that much.
|1 week 5 days ago||I suppose it's a matter of||
I suppose it's a matter of semantics, but I don't think so. Jim coming to Michigan is no more or less likely after Lloyd's comments than they were before, is my point. Had Lloyd not said anything, it wouldn't have changed the likelihood at all. Had Lloyd voiced his disapproval, I still don't think it would have had any bearing on anything, but that's up for debate.
|1 week 5 days ago||It doesn't, but it is widely||
It doesn't, but it is widely accepted that having a prominent athletics program attracts people to your school. People = money = connections = resources. Michigan does benefit from having a top football team.
Not that I think that Michigan needs to have a prominent football program to be a top university, but it certainly doesn't hurt.
|1 week 5 days ago||Both of their OOC schedules||
Both of their OOC schedules left a bit to be desired. In Baylor's case a LOT to be desired. If they play, say, a Georgia or Arizona or other top Power 5 team and lose, then they really don't have much of an argument to have made the playoffs. If they win, then they have a legitimate gripe.
Having them play again in a rematch would be unsatisfying to pretty much everyone - having them play other conferences gives them an opportunity to tell the playoof committe why they were wrong (or prove them right).
|1 week 5 days ago||I get that, but people are||
I get that, but people are using it as a reason why Harbaugh is more likely to come. It's not, it's just a reason that he's not less likely.
