I don't buy that either. Of the $100+ million, probably 40% comes from shared TV costs and other things that wouldn't change if they hired me. I'd also discount increased gifts to the athletic department because I'm not sure those really benefit the school.
Keeping the AD profitable is huge for the school's finances, but the marginal return of Harbaugh vs someone like Mullen is probably $1-2m per year, once you factor in the difference in salary.

Serious question: adult punting formation or is he manball dipshit?

Excellent special teams? We're settling for 11 guys on the field, right?

I don't really think it dims his star that much. Oregon and OSU have really elite athletes and can really run the ball. There aren't many teams that can stop either of them.
Narduzzi's scheme is designed to be very high-risk, leaving DBs to fend for themselves in order to crowd the box. There isn't a team in the Big East that could exploit that against MSU's defense. In 3 seasons of good recruiting, no Big East team could do that to a Narduzzi coached Pitt team either.

The Raiders are the worst franchise in the NFL. Worse than the Browns. Worse than the Bills.
I get the pull of being in the NFL and wanting a Super Bowl. I don't get the idea he'd want to try it in Oakland. A coach with real control in Buffalo or Jacksonville could make something happen. The Raiders are like Michigan the last few years. They need an ownership change and to remove a bunch of top staffers. Especially in the NFL, it's not about the head coach. It's about drafting, organization, and having a top QB. Oakland has nothing going for it except a great location.

I happen to agree, but I see the other side of the argument.
Bottom line, guys go the JUCO route because they didn't meet the NCAA's very low bar to qualify for a four year school. It's reasonable to be suspicious that these kids will never be able to meet university level standards.
I just see the argument as flawed because the qualification standards for athletes are already so low that a kid who finishes an associates degree with decent grades can reasonably expect to meet the lower academic expectations.

Ohio already implemented a ban. An ineffective ban that can't actu stop players from unionizing, just like Michigan's, but it was implemented.

These bills are jokes. They can unionize if they want to. The school doesn't have to negotiate and the players don't have to play.
If a court can't order the players to play, then they can unionize.

That all depends on whether or not you think Todd Graham is smarmy. If he's a jerk for ditching Pitt, then you know when Herman probably wouldn't accept the Michigan job.

Don't tempt him. He may be willing to work for free to get back in the game. Charge him $100K for every punt and we have a deal.

I would nuance Brian's opinion on Miles some.
I strongly prefer Miles to NFL types not named Harbaugh, Addazio, etc. That's especially true if Jon Chavis comes with him. Remember, Iowa doesn't do much crazy scheming either and their defenses are typically pretty good.
However, I would prefer Tom Herman to Miles, so the point is probably moot. Herman would almost certainly take the job.
Remaining somewhat likely candidate preference:

Funny, I'm the exact opposite. Not a fan of their breakfasts, but a huge fan of dinner and the alcohol lists.
That said, the doughnuts just rock.

Zingermann's Roadhouse has deservedly not been mentioned--I think it's overrated, even though I'm a huge fan for dinner.
However, Roadhouse doughnuts are fricken' fantastic!

Or the Big 12 just implements a championship game and doesn't ask permission. Why exactly does the NCAA have a say at all?

Yes, they should travel farther to play Big 10 teams.
Isn't the BIg 10 giving them money enough?

I don't actively moderate (or post) anymore, but I did the last one and the end of Rodriguez. Self-immolation for nothing is a strange thing.
