2014 says we can't have things we want. Therefore...
PLEASE LET PITT NOT HIRE SCHIANO SO MICHIGAN CAN GET HIM!!

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.

I'm going to rush the field at Michigan Stadium. Who's with me?

Greg Schiano comes from the NFL. Resume hiding.

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!
|1 week 4 days ago||Or the Big 12 just implements||
Or the Big 12 just implements a championship game and doesn't ask permission. Why exactly does the NCAA have a say at all?
|1 week 5 days ago||Yes, they should travel||
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.

I love the sense of humor around here. So angry at all times.

So is Harbaugh officially not feasible :(
I wanted Mullen during the last search, so I certainly would like to see him here now.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||In terms of likelihood,||
In terms of likelihood, Harbaugh is a much bigger get for Michigan than Meyer was for OSU.
In terms of impact, Meyer is probably number 2, behind Saban, in terms of overall resume in college today--regardless of whether Harbaugh comes to Michigan.

He was my number 3 guy: young, can build a program fast, asshole, etc.
Herman at OSU moves up to 3 behind Harbaugh and Mullen.
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||The only issue here is that||
The only issue here is that schools like Michigan generate enormous revenue off football players--revenue that supports other sports. I'm completely on board with acknowledging athletes' unique talents, just those of music majors, and creating a different standard for them. However, it is only valid if we appropriately help the athletes get somewhere after school too. The connections and support are there, we just need to be sure to use it.
I'm not arguing Michigan doesn't do this, but there are a lot of anecdotal stories about guys not like Todd Howard, who basically get nothing except some level of knee pain from their time as a big-time athlete.

Add an overlay of the industry and the S&P and you can start making this argument.
Also, having an IPO not jump benefits shareholders. It means he extracted maximum value from the market. I'd argue Ali Baba had a somewhat failed IPO because they left so much value on the table. The banks hate it when the price doesn't jump because they insure against initial losses by new investors.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Agree on those things.||
Agree on those things. Fortunately, the Big 10 doesn't allow those things, so Miles wouldn't have a choice.
As for cutting players, I'm less concerned about cutting players now that our scholarships are for four years. It's going to count against him if he cuts players.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Make sure you're clear,||
Make sure you're clear, Rodriguez took a lot of kids who were barely or unable* to meet NCAA minimums. Very few football players probably meet Michigan's 25-75% ACT numbers. They have elite
*We screwed Demar Dorsey. Rodriguez and admissions should have known he wouldn't be admitted before he signed an LOI.

You think Michigan has higher standards for elite athletes than LSU does?
Maybe he can take a couple more risks than Michigan can, but we're talking 1-2 / year, not 10-12.

At this point, if he brings Jon Chavis and his strength staff, I'm on board with Miles.
