There was a time where Sam was saying that one of the Michigan schools would be a likely destintation because there was pressure on him to leave the state initially and that had lessened, but that seems to not be the case anymore.

been very fortunate with recruits in the big scheme of things.  give hoke his due, the dude could recruit and recruit well.  and unlike 99.9% of coaching changes, harbaugh inherited a boatload of talent (not perfect, but way, way better than most) and is taking it straight to the moon.   sure, harbaugh is the difference x 1,000, but harbaugh inheriting a talented team is the reason it's not nuts that we're all vibrating with excitement about playing state and ohio.

I agree with your assessment that we do have a great deal of talent - and Hoke is to be credited for bringing those players in - but during the Rich Rod and Hoke departures we lost a lot of talent (as mentioned above) and who nows who might have been a silent commit or lean during those transitional periods.

And even though Hoke did bring in most of the this team's talent, it's not a stretch to think things would be drastically different under a Hoke fifth year.  Look at the punt team alone.

but my point is that on the whole the team was well-stocked in many areas.  harbaugh did fantastic at stanford, and the reason his time there was even more remarkable was that he took a team that wasn't stocked and turned them around quickly.   in our case he is taking talent and basically turning them around mentally and schematically (if that's a word) and he's doing it in the space of months and even weeks.

i am so jazzed about saturday.  i've got to coach a couple of kids' football games but they should be done and we should be in the truck on the way home before the game starts. 

it is great. to be. a michigan wolverine.   and i think its' going to be even better come saturday afternoon.

Colin Cowherd went on a 5 minute rant Thursday saying how good of a coach Sark is and how much better he is in comparison to Petersen.
