My understanding is that Nike is able (legally allowed) to make fan gear (just not uniforms and sideline apparel) but won't be doing so until the contract starts. Not sure if that's a gentlemen's agreement among the apparel manufacturers or if Nike doesn't want to advertise for an Adidas program for another year, etc, but that's the situation.

Like many others, just wanted to chime in that, even though that presser was full of coachspeak, it was just downright fun to read. I don't think it's just the (halo of the) Harbaugh effect either...talking about the big persons' table, spending time together in a football fashion, playfully misinterpreting the comment about being on the field as talking about him...GOLD, JERRY...GOLD.

Coaching tree is, in fact, his "fault" but it's pretty darn low on the list of priorities. Definitely a nice to have, not a need to have.

Lloyd retired, wasn't fired. That is the difference and its a huge one.

In fairness, ASU announced it as an official school color before UA used it on a helmet. Not that anyone cares.

In fairness, they kicked our asses in them, in our house. So, while I'm confident this year, I'm not sure why you're laughing about last year.

Very little basketball teams? I bet those teams don't win a lot of games. Get pounded down low by taller players.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Dude, nobody is comparing||
Dude, nobody is comparing them as coaches. Merely saying that Harbaugh was a MUCH better coach than his record at Stanford, and thus overall record is deceiving. You could even argue that Hoke was a WORSE coach at Michigan than his record (given the trajectory and that he inherited the talent that led to his best teams).
But you say yourself that Hoke "turned around a MAC program". So why wouldn't another MAC or MAC-level program give him that same chance? Those are still FBS schools, FYI.
You can think Hoke wasn't good enough at Michigan (which we all think) but it's an overreaction to think he won't get another shot. Expect to be shocked, I guess.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Indeed, and there were||
Indeed, and there were *still* swarms of people who thought RR's experience here meant he was finished as a head coach, that the best he could aspire to was to be someone's OC.
I'm not a Hoke fan, but he won at Ball State and he won at San Diego State. Some other FBS program will give him a shot.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||By "Hoke will be fine" I mean||
By "Hoke will be fine" I mean that he will be hired again at the FBS level and be able to sustain his employment. As for why, I'm with Blue Indy...to ignore the state of the program he took over at Ball State, and what he did with it is to agree with State fan who says Harbaugh has never won anything.
Now, again, Hoke is not good enough for Michigan. But that's a high bar compared to very many programs out there.
I'd also like to note that it appears the post I replied to above has been deleted, so now this chain looks randomly placed.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||He wasn't good enough at||
He wasn't good enough at Michigan but this is silly. Then again, people said the same about Rich Rod and were proven wrong pretty quickly. Hoke will be fine in the mid majors or even a lower rung Power 5 program.

Given that Brian gave Bacon a full article to advertise his book, and Bacon was interested in working with Brian on it, I doubt there's an issue.

So bad. So so bad. So many dumb people.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||What you didn't say, but I do||
What you didn't say, but I do believe, is that had Brandon hired Harbaugh in 2011, he might be on his way out soon (potentially after winning a national championship...), whereas now I agree that we have a good chance of having him long term (hopefully with multiple national championships...).
We will never truly know, but now that we're here...we may in fact be better off long term. Which is not to excuse any of Brandon's actions, just that it works out that way sometimes.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think it was his Twitter||
I think it was his Twitter handle (which is not necessarily a part of his professional persona), not his email address. Not that he's not a clown, but it is an important distinction.

Good call. Thanks.

This one is fan art, but is exceptionally well-done, and I quite like it:

So, "Ohio", which was new (I'm not going to say it was creative or clever), you didn't like because it wasn't original...but "TTUN", which was Woody's and thus not original, you like? Ok...

I'd call that worse than "bad press". Like, disgusting human behavior. Ohio gonna Ohio, I guess.

Just wait until the movie Concussion starring Will Smith releases on Christmas Day...

I strongly prefer the Ring of Honor concept rather than retiring numbers. You have to retire Charles' number, and does that hurt us in recruiting?

I don't think Huerter is being recruited as a PG. More of a combo or wing.

Congrats...you are a special kind of idiot.
I'm going to go ahead and assume that's the "BigRed" part and not the "Wolverine" part.

Haven't we already established that Bo Ryan is from another galaxy? I guess the better question is, for how much longer will we have aliens?

Denigrate? Did you take that satirical article as real?
