Will get a degree and a fantastic education at the BEST public university in the country. Period. Until Coach Harbaugh swallows his pride and makes some changes, there's no way a championship (B1G or otherwise) is likely.
Jim Harbaugh is a great recruiter. Dude can talk a huge game. When he came back to coach at Michigan, it was one of the greatest moments for me as a diehard fan for 40+ years. But obviously, something needs to change. I don't think it's a bad thing attracting kids to a stellar academic institution. Even promising that you'll be joining an almost guaranteed top 20 program every year.
But I've been buying into the hype every week and every year. There's so much freakin talk on social media about how great this team is. How dedicated everyone is. I am not one to bash any of these student athletes. They are working hard and doing their best. It's time to stop trying to convince everyone where this program is. Enough with all the Twitter hype and all the rhetoric. It's time to keep it real and shut up until this program can actually win something. 10 wins, nothing to sneeze at. But 10 wins with all the talk and hype. Not so great. Maybe we need to take a more blue collar approach.
Michigan IS a great school. Heck, we even have a pretty darn good basketball program (doing more with less). I wear my maize and blue with great pride. Proud to have earned a degree there. But enough TALK about how great the football team is. Harbaugh can bring in some pretty great talent. But until it starts showing up on the national stage, let's not call it what it isn't.
Those who stay won't be champions unless Harbaugh changes some things.
Happy New Year! Be safe and GO BLUE!!
