Jim Harbaugh still coaches at Michigan

Recommended Posts

I'm not looking to white knight for Michigan, but I'm obliged to add some levity.  That guy's a fan, and all teams have some fans who are idiots.  Sparty, Ohio State, Texas, Michigan.  Idiots like that guy are nationwide.

Jim responds to the rumor about his "exit strategy" with a letter to recruits and their families.  

https://247sports.com/college/michigan/Article/Jim-Harbaugh-refutes-NFL-return-with-letter-to-recruits-137392063/

"Dear Parents,

I am reaching out to let you know that the recent claims that I am "pursuing an exit strategy" are total crap. It's an annual strategy driven by our enemies to cause disruption to our program and to negatively recruit. By the way, I don't even have an "agent or representative."

I am committed to your sons, their education and to their development as football players and people.

Please excuse the informality of this letter but I felt that it was important to get this out to you as quickly as possible.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Happy to discuss.

Go Blue!

Jim Harbaugh"

That part about "It's an annual strategy driven by our enemies to cause disruption to our program and to negatively recruit" is straight out of the Bo-Woody paranoia handbook. Kudos for that.

Pandering to his base, too. "We're trying to do things the right way but are being blocked at every turn by our mendacious rivals!" is straight catnip to the MGoblog faction

well he's blowing the fucking doors off Notre Dame so right now I'm a fan

Gotta say I didn't see that beatdown coming. I figured ND would win a close one. But fuck the Irish. I figured they wouldn't get into the playoff even with one loss but this settles it.

at least one thing is right with college football this year, no wasted playoff game with Notre Dame in it.

Lots of football still to be played there chief. 

SEC Champion & Clemson are close to locks, OSU would have to slip @PedoSt (or Indy) - but all these teams still have to play games against teams better than K-State

I'll be really surprised if Penn State beats Ohio State in Columbus, based on how Ohio State is playing. Penn State looks good, Ohio State looks like that kid you knew in middle school who was good at basketball and then came back from summer break leading into 8th grade six inches taller with facial hair and the ability to dunk. They're not any more talented than they were the past few years, but all of their talent is doing the most talented things it can as opposed to last year's defensive shitshow. It just shows how the 2015 offensive and 2018 defensive staffs let that program down. They should probably have two more national titles this decade. 

Anyway: Michigan has the best shot at beating Ohio State, but only for the most superficial of reasons (THROW OUT THE RECORD BOOKS, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN). It's the most emotional game Ohio State will play all year long, and it's on the road where they won't have been tested (Cincinnati, Michigan State, and Penn State are all home games). I don't think Michigan has much of a chance, but they have the tallest midget of chances.

Agreed.

tOSU basically has three bye weeks until PSU [an actual bye, Maryland (H) and Rutgers (A)] while PSU has to go to Minnesota in two weeks in the biggest game in that stadium's history.

Michigan has also been steadily improving since the Wisconsin implosion.  That said, I expect the Buckeyes will be able to run all over them and Chase Young may kill Patterson.

tOSU's adjusted stats this season are insane.  The best rushing offense in the country coupled with the best pass defense in the country is a great combination for winning a rivalry game on the road.

Maryland took anOSU to the wire last year.  Anyway as good as the Bucks are, playing PSU and @UM consecutively,  and then a CCG, is tough for even great teams.  Odds are they drop one.

Tagged for future reference. I'll save your neg rep for after.

Great outcome with the win over the Irish; all the GoBlue fans are back on the Harbandwagon and think he has them on track for more great success.
No chance he's going anywhere, and there was great rejoicing in Ann Arbor and all across the B1G
