At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

At Dominoes and Michigan, he took a successful company and program and destroyed them. Maybe with a struggling company, the opposite will happen?

In the last 5 years, I've been pulled over only twice. Both times in Ohio on the same road trip to the east coast. This is despite going slower in Ohio than any other state knowing they target out of state drivers.

If they make a movie about you getting harassed in the middle east for saying this and harbaugh tweets his support of it, we won't make a board post. Happy?
|10 weeks 2 days ago||He did insinuate that any||
He did insinuate that any American should support the film. Beyond that, the film has only 2 characters who are not terrorists and they are killed almost instantaneously. The main character refers to Muslims as savages throughout the film and they never distinguish between good and bad guys.
This may seem trivial to you but consider that threats and acts of violence against Muslims are increasing (see Chapel Hill and Tennessee from a couple days ago, etc).
Jim Harbaugh is a highly respected member of the community and his comments, unintentionally of course, galvanized many racists in the community to say hateful things on twitter and through emails to the Muslim students association on campus. They received many hateful and threatening messages. I hope that explains the concern to some degree. He has the right to enjoy the movie obviously but people have a right to take issue with him supporting it as a public employee making several million dollars a year with a prominent pedestal.

"No man only 1% of movies are bad on them and they only make up that percent of the country." Was this a troll post?
I had to double check whether I was on RCMB or bucknuts. Your comment set things right Jon.

The most reasonable comment in the thread right. This is probably what harbaugh considered after his twee. Hopefully they can settle this issue today.

Cue the "unamerican" "get out of my country" comments. Pretty surprising from a Michigan blog, a university that prides itself on diversity.
I respect Jim for doing this today. Hopefully this is the last board post on this topic ever.

Agreed. The movie might be offensive or racist or even inappropriate for a public event at UMich but they showed it and it's over. Let's please stop talking about it. Football season can't start early enough.

This reminds of me when people were upset with Dave Brandon and his response was, "why do you hate the players so much!" When did anyone in the terrible thread say they didn't like America? If someone said that American sniper was offensive, racist and stupid, does that mean they hate America?

Charlie has a job doing "charlie work". Give the guy a break.

Honestly, the whole medical education system sucks. You undergo 4 years of grueling schoolwork, train another 3-7 years earning a salary well below what others w/grad degrees earn (while being treated worse) and leave with a huge amount of debt. If the tech industry was booming at the level it is now, there's no way I would have went into medicine. The best college students in America will run away from the field for better prospects.

Good luck man. This is an equally exciting and stressful day. Hopefully she ends up in Ann Arbor!

After watching this video, I have to assume SF was just a place for him to pad his resume to coach at Michigan!

The MSU game was a giant embarrassment but I was pumped by his reaction after the touchdown.

Nuss without a doubt. Also, if his assistants are bad, that's a criticism of Hoke for hiring and retaining them.

It appears that Michigan likes to run coaching searches the same way it likes to run offenses, slowly and passively.

I think he's a terrible person. He played one of his "sons" despite his consussion and ankle injury and refused to apologize or acknowledge any mistake on his part. If a coach put my son back in the game like that I'd beat the daylight out of him.

There's nothing wrong with optimism. I do fault those who stood by Hoke and attacked anyone who ciriticized him as being childish or short-sighted.
