Inside may be a great fit for him, but he needs to be stronger.

All excuses aside.  Gary is overrated.  He showed flashes at times, but is very inconsistent and tends to get swallowed up by stronger OL.  I project him to be an avg. to slightly better than avg. NFL player.

Very interesting article.  Thank you for posting.  It will be interesting to see what the next 30 years has in store for contact football.

Its a shame because football is the best sport played today.

I had a beer with Robert Plant after a Page Plant show in 95.  Great guy, very personable, affable and friendly, yet still carried that "British Rock Star" vibe well.

Great Move for Jake. He was able to escape the Lions

The lions are organization of assholes who are arrogant and in over their heads. Quinn and their rookie coach Patricia are flat out fucking buffoons.

Buy a clue charblue.  The O had not sniffed 20 pts late in the 3rd Q vs. a Horrible OSU defense that got torched repeatedly by the likes of Purdue and Minn.  The remaining 20 pts that M scored that day were pure Garbage time.

Bama and Clemson play to win and will do whatever it takes to get favorable matchups on the field, and win.

Why can't this program bring in New Blood in the form of innovative young coaches who will stay???

Instead, people bring up these aging relic retreads.

Haskins has a rocket arm, is very accurate and smart and is the best pro style QB prospect in a good number of years.

The Lions should trade up and grab him.  He will be that good in the NFL.

Mattison can do whatever the fuck he wants with the remainder of his career and life....but this is a dick move any way a fan of Michigan can look at it.

Fuck him.  Fuck OSU.

Both Harbaughs are stubborn to a fault.

It’s rather shocking that a former all pro quarterback such as Jim Harbaugh will refuse to use innovative schemes to get receivers open, in addition to not running tempo regularly as a tactic to force the defense to adapt and get favorable matchups.

If Harbaugh continues to coach offense with such an archaic philosophy, then in the immortal words of my old little league football coach Gary Bonham of the Soithgate Bengals:

“Shiiiit...he ain’t nuttin but a pussy”

The 90s players, recruited by Bo (89-90), Gary Moeller and Lloyd was the finest talent ever assembled in a single decade in Michigan football history.

To Hell with "body blows".  That is such an archaic philosophy which does not work vs. good teams. 

Hopefully Pep gets fired and that idiocy goes away with him.

Harbaugh is getting shredded right now on ESPN U radio.  After coaching a shitty game, apparently he gave a “drive-by” handshake to Mullen after the game which they are saying was classless.

Chase was a true captain and leader of this team.  Unlike others who had the official titles but quit.

You nailed it.  I wanted to love Coach Harbaugh, but his flaws and stubbornness are choking the program”s ability to get to the next level and to be a true power. 

People try to compare JH to Bo based on the “conversative” play and his losses in big games. Well I’m here to tell you that analogy is  fallacious. 

Bo was much more innovative and in tune with the progression of the game. He changed his offense over the years as college football wa evolving. Also Bo never got blown out in big games. 

Perhaps it’s time for Michigan to start looking at other options beyond JH. 

01/01/2019 - 10:17pm 1) OSU recruits (and cheats)…

1) OSU recruits (and cheats) better than Michigan

2) OSU has had better HC's than Michigan every year for the past 10 years.

3) Other than an occaisional blip such as Purdue this year, Iowa last year...

OSU typically plays with a "killer instinct" and Michigan only does when playing a lessor opponent. 

4) OSU coaches exploit matchups much more often in big games than Michigan does. 

4) Michigan crumbles under its own hype year after year.  They win 4 or 5 games and suddenly everyone is an All American and the team is on pace for a B1G or Natty.  Too much reading of the press clips.  Too much complacency.

 

12/31/2018 - 6:57pm I have been racking my brain…

I have been racking my brain, trying to figure out exactly when Jim Harbaugh became a Pussy.  Back in the day as a QB, he had good, not great talent but excelled due to his "go for it" personality on the field.  His teammates responded to this, and JH finished 3rd or 4th in the 1986 Heisman campaign, and was one play from leading his medicore Colts team to a Super Bowl in 1995.

In the SB vs, his brother, the 49ers had a first and goal with a great RB in Frank Gore and a running QB in Kaepernick, along with some solid WRs.  He puckered up and became conservative and blew the opportunity of a lifetime.

At Michigan, JH has repeatedly "puckered up" vs. OSU, MSU and top 10 opponents.  Michigan should have won some of these games which they lost vs. top 10 opponents.  

Here is my JH rating:

Recruiter - 7.5.  He brings in top talent, however can overlook talent at key positions where it is needed.  He also brings in kids who are not necessarily the "would kill to play football" types that this team needs, to overcome the hype and baggage which is inevitable with playing football at Michigan.

On Field Coach - 5.5.  JH is a slightly better than average on field coach.  His teams are often unprepared to play teams of equal or better talent.  He is frequently out-schemed.  His clock management and TO management is historically below average.  He rarely has his team perform above their talent level in big games.  Rarely if Never.  He is utterly gutless as a co-OC and plays with fear.  His offenses play slow, somewhat disorganized and without flow and very passively.

Program Head - 8.0. JH is a great marketer who has increased the value of the program and consistently puts butts in the seats. Apparently he runs a "clean" program and requires his players to get some semblance of an education, or at least give them the opportunity to do so.

Future? - JH is stubborn to a fault.  He is a cut above Hoke as an on field coach, but is a similar recruiter.  He needs to look inward and become more aggressive and fearless as a leader.  He needs to be much more innovative in his personal offensive philosphy.  This will pay off dividends in his team's on field play.  If these corrections are not made, then it will be more of the same next year: 3-4 losses.

Michigan is a program which can recruit close to the "big boys" but lacks a coach who is aggressive and innovative to take advantage of talent match-ups in big game. 

 

 

12/29/2018 - 6:11pm If this plays out to be true…

If this plays out to be true, give JH 1 more year and another 3-4 loss season, then fire his ass and hire an innovative, YOUNG HUNGRY coach and pay him $2 mil per year to rebuild the program.

Well look at that...get behind forces you to be aggressive and you move the ball.

Why is Jim Captain Comeback Harbaugh, former all pro QB, such a pussy in his offensive game strategy?
