It sounds more like it just wasn't a culture match for you. Not everyone feels that hunting and fishing is necessary for raising kids. To others it may be hiking and surfing or playing soccer year-round. None of the things you've mentioned have much to do with raising kids.
I'm not going to knock growing up MI because I did it and loved it. And there are things MI offers that CA doesn't, but the opposite is still the case. I felt I was active as a kid, but my kids are already more active than I was because the weather never permits it. It's just a difference in perspective, but you can't just say unequivocally that one is better than the other.

I get what you're saying - but not everyone in the Bay Area lives SF and not everyone in SoCal lives in West LA. Sure, some areas are crazy expensive. But not every suburb is like that. You can find lots of nice areas to raise kids without paying out your ass for real estate.
|20 hours 56 min ago||It sounds like you worked in||
It sounds like you worked in some pretty bad areas, that no doubt exist. But just like you can't judge all of Michigan by inner-city Detroit, you can't judge all of CA by South Central. There isn't any gang activity where most of us are raising our kids.
CA is far from perfect. But there are plenty of areas that are great for raising kids - just like every other state in the country. So I'm not sure I buy your argument. You'll have to do better than "the cops find lots of bad guys there." It's not like Michigan is crime-free.

And I'm sure all of those beautiful med school girls will be lining up to marry you as soon as you say it's time.

He might not be messing with his life. He might be saying "maybe" and Durkin feels that's worth waiting for.

As someone currently raising kids in CA, I'd love to hear your reasoning.

You sound pretty cool, bro. Tell me more. Was she fucking smokin or what?

Mama knows best. Mrs Harbaugh should be treated like a queen in AA. She also holds the power to keep him here if he decides he wants to try the NFL again.

ESPN might want to pick it up just for the halftime show.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Why the Fred Jackson hate?||
Why the Fred Jackson hate? Michigan has had so many good RBs under him, and we've tended to have very good or better RB play every year we had a competent OL. Remember every RB between Rickey Powers (is that about when FJ got here?) and Mike Hart? All awesome. After that we had a talent drop, but Brandon Minor and Fitz Toussaint had very good upperclass years and both Drake Johnson and Derrick Green were looking good this season until injuries.
There are far bigger problems with our staff than Fred Jackson.

You know it's been Christmas shopping season for the last three months so checking MDen isn't the weirdest thing in the world.

Well that's not merry Christmas news.

Exactly. That's what I was thinking too. If my brother was in that spot and a reporter asked me if I urged him to do one thing or another I would say, "No, I told him to do whatever he wants." Is John supposed to say, "Yeah, he's doing it because my dad and I told him to."?

It would be funnier if Hackett paid Schiano to show up so he could run out, get booed, and then Hackett comes back saying "Just kidding you guys, it's Harbaugh" and then Jim runs out to everyone going nuts.
That's what I would do, at least.

Your post makes sense. We all have preferences. But to say that you won't order any apparel for years just because it's Adidas instead of Nike is outrageous and silly.
|3 days 20 hours ago||When it comes to apparel,||
When it comes to apparel, money should be the determining factor. Not the only factor, but if they money isn't close to equal, I would hope the AD takes the most lucrative deal.
We all want things that cost lots of money (like Jim Harbaigh, hello). In order to have those things that cost lots of money, we need lots of money. And since everyone bitches about ticket prices and PSDs, why not let Adidas fund that stuff for us?

It's not that simple. Dantonio hasn't been a DC for over a decade and isn't going to do it all himself. He's also not super young and has had some health problems so doing too much is not in his (or MSU's) best interest. Narduzzi didn't win the 2013 Broyles Award or get the Pitt HC job by being Dantonio's puppet. That was Narduzzi's defense and Narduzzi ran it.
Narduzzi was also a guy who got the MSU players very riled up and was a great recruiter. That all needs to be replaced now.
|3 days 20 hours ago||It's a little bit of both.||
It's a little bit of both. Dantonio is a very good coach, but he wasn't running the defense all by himself, and like others have said, the D that has been so successful at MSU the last handful of years was Narduzzi's D, not Dantonio's D. Narduzzi was also especially good at watching opponents' film and scheming to stop it - it's not like a DC just implements a defense and then says "go run it" every week. Narduzzi was the one gameplanning in practice every week and tweeking the D for each opponent. He was obviously quite good at that, and that will be lost.
Now, Dantonio knows defense well himself and they'll likely hire someone good. But this is certainly a loss for MSU.

It depends on how you define Christmas. If it's the day you get your gifts, then yes, that would be the new Christmas. But if you define it as the day our savior is born, Jim's birthday was yesterday.

Christmas is the day Harbaugh is official, as far as I'm concerned.

Sounds like that might be a good idea. Also might be hard to come by if you don't hurry.
