You can always find a difference - that's why they are called comparisons. Putting character comparisons aside, you can't deny the on field (court) performance trajectory of both these coaches are eerily similar.
Coaching: Both are phenominal on one side of the ball (JB=offense, MD=defense)
Recruiting: Both are overall average at best. Found lightening in a bottle a few times, but really relies on developing under-rated talent. This strategy seems to be catching up to both coaches.
Performance: MSU made it to the CFP with some decent success before. Michigan made it to the FF with some decent success before and after
How it will end for both: ???? Who knows, but I see them both kinda ending their careers at their respective schools with a big "fart noise". Respective fan bases will look back and relish the good achievements during those handful of years, thank them for their services, and be excited to move on to the next coach.

Probably a very accurate description of how JB will end his time at Michigan.

...in 2007. There was internal struggle on whether to hire Les Miles. So not getting RR probably gives us Hoke 3 years before when we actually got him. From there, I have not clue what happens.

...in fact I would say that they will probably NOT make the tournament.
Needless to say, I'll take the win no doubt.

"This sucks because I despise the way Wisconsin plays (aside from the year they made the NC game)..."
or the other year they made the final 4...
or the 3 years that they made they elite 8...
or the 4 years they won the big ten...
or the 2 years they won the big ten tourney.
While Wisconsin's game play can be unfun to watch sometimes, its incredibly effective. We should be so lucky.

I have never played organized football outside of tackle football with friends when I was a kid, so I was never very profecient in understanding the finer details of the what's going on on the field.
This game taught me the importance of being elite in the trenches. I have read about this concept many times and, to a certain extent, I understand it. But I was able to SEE the importance for the first time. The difference in proficiency between our OL and DL was so drastic so it was so easy to see.
I now understand why Harbaugh could take as many as 8 OL in this class. I now understand why he likes the TE and FB as much as he does, and I now understand why he he prefers the NFL QB types over the spread types. And because of this, I feel good about our future.
As Brian mentioned, Harbaugh was shackled with Hoke recruits. Hoke was a good defensive line coach and it showed in his defensive recruiting. Hoke was not a good coach in any other phase of the game and it showed in his recruiting.
Next year will be interesting as Harbaugh type recruits start to take over a greater portion of the roster. They will be young, but I'm expecting a very similar year next year.
