"It's the 49er way," said Harbaugh, who is 34-11-1 with San Francisco. "It's the team, the team, the team. Everybody does a little, and it adds up to be a lot. Nobody above the team. Nobody more important. Nobody less important. Hundreds of people in this organization, and we all have a role and we all contribute to the best of our ability. And that's the team, the team, the team. We win as a team. That's how we do it."


Where have I heard this before...hmm...

Go Blue!!

If Harbaugh ends up at Texas I will cry and I will die a little inside as I crawl up into the fetal position and shake.

No way in hell he ends up at Texas so you're safe, unless you're referring to the Houston Texans.

He's a jerk - not even worth the discussion or getting all worked up about.

So loyalty only goes one way? We weren't there with an open hand during his time of need, why should we expect him to be any different?

Well, we have pretty much been enjoying 3-5 loss seasons for the last 20 years or so.  We should all be accustomed to it by now and stop all the bitching, its the norm not the exception.

LMAO - feel free to read and interpret whatever you'd like from my post - where is there a ringing endorsement of a "nice guy" like Hoke??  Personally, I want a coach who's a p$%ck, but that'll probably never happen at Michigan in my lifetime. 
I would have loved Harbaugh but I'm not living in fantasy land and realize he's bigger than the Michigan job so he'll work wherever he wants.

I've said this before and I'll say it again, not hiring Harbaugh was a mistake of epic proportions but we are stuck with Hoke.

Harbaugh wanted Brandon to offer him the job, not out him through a comprehensive corporate interview. If your competition offered you a job for more money you would take it. If they wanted to put you through three interviews and a personality test, you would tell them to go pound sand.

Harbaugh thought Brandon would offer him the job and he would take it. Instead Brandon wanted to put him through an interview process. Harbaugh thought it was laughable and so did Miles.

I was pissed when they hired Hoke. 2 of the top 10 coaches in the nation are former Bo players and you can't offer them the f*ckin job. Instead you insult them with the attitude that your big time.

No way Brandon would bow to Harbaugh or Miles given his experiences at Bain capital/dominoes pizza. No way Harbaugh or Miles would let him be this involved in football decisions. He knew Hoke would be pleased as piss to have the job and do whatever Brandon wanted. We will be ok in 2 years but never a national power because of that decision.

If O$U would have done that to Meyer he would have said f*ck you. Instead they courted him.

Go Blue!!

Well if we play revisionist history, which gets back to my earlier post. We had the opportunity to hire Jim Harbaugh, who BADLY wanted the QB job in 2002. We went another direction (Jim's off the field antics were always the reason I heard for why he`d never end up back in A2). Now with his ambition he likely wouldn't have accepted being a position coach longterm but he at least would have been part of Lloyd's coaching tree and more likely to come back. Hell he likely would have ended up our OC and coach in waiting.
 
Hindsight is 20-20 though and it's not like Lefty was a terrible QB coach, and he never embarrassed us off the field.

Harbaugh's personality was too big for Carr and by hiring Lefty (who was a good QB coach), we won the battle but lost the war. Carr was too narrow sites instead of looking at the long term future of the program. By hiring Harbaugh at the time, we had our HC in waiting and that was not the case with the hire of Lefty.

Just wondering, a bit off topic.....but how did Scot get the nickname "lefty"? Yes, I assume he was a southpaw.......mill lions of people are lefties but not all wear that nametag. Just curious.

Also, why are we only focusing on Jim? Isn't John as big a catch, and if Hoke were to land another 7 win season next year, couldn't he still be a realistic candidate? (Unless Texas were to land him)

He was not a southpaw. His last name is Loeffler, hence Lefty,

IIRC, there was a lot of negativity toward Jim Harbaugh by Michigan posters here and other sites because of a comment about UM's academic requirements as compared to Stanford's. Some of you may have made some derogative comments about JH. I don't know but don't you think that entered into the equation for him not aggressively pursuing the UM job?

Harbaugh does not give 2 sh*ts what we say on this board (or any other board) and there's not a chance in hell that anything we said in 2010-11 entered into him pursuing the UM job.

I only posed the question. MOST all comments @ JH were very negative a couple of years before the opening at Michigan came open.

Read my last sentence. I just questioned whether ALL the prior negativity helped play a part, however small, in his thought process. The "Screw Jim Harbaugh" went on for months not so much here but on other UM boards.

Don't think for a minute these guys don't see and read this crap. And, I'm NOT insinuating THAT was his main reasoning such as family on the left coast and DB screwing it up.

But I get a little weary of some of you acting like you were right there and trash another poster for posing a question. If you were the be all and end all, your names would be household words in Michigan football. Excuse me but you are not.

Now, do what you do best: belittle another fellow Michigan poster and fan.

Btw, I was one who strongly wanted JH as coach and wondered what was taking so long. I am not privy to any of the inter-workings of what went on. However, I did know Brady and GMatt and thought that while Hoke couldn't have been the first choice, it would be a nice fit.

Jury is still out. Some of you may have to eat a lot of words before this is all said and done.

After Carr I had no clue who I wanted to be the next HC, but the name I kept coming back to was Les Miles. Harbaugh wasn't even close to a hot commodity at that point in time so I am not surprised that his name didn't pop up much. Now when RR was let go, that was a whole different ballgame. Harbaugh was the hottest coach on the market, and he supposedly wanted this job badly. We blew it, and Les Miles wasn't really even an option the second go around, however anyone is an option if you throw enough money their way. Frankly, I was pissed when Hoke was hired. I thought he was second tier, maybe even third tier.
 
Hoke turned a lot of heads at his opening presser, his recruiting was hot right out of the gate, and he had a great first season. We have struggled the last two and the fan base is getting restless, that is no surprise. I still think Hoke can right this ship and be a very successful coach at Michigan. Despite that, it is hard for me to put aside the "what ifs." What if RR had taken the Bama job the year before accepting Michigan's job? What if we hadn't botched the Les Miles deal when Carr stepped down? And what if the prodigal son had actually come home to Michigan after the three year RR debacle? How different could/would our program be if any of these events played out differently???

Very well thought out, UM5. My comments above @JH were about posts before the RR hiring.

I do think you're selling Hoke a little short. Let's give him another year or two and then, if necessary, he should be gone.

I do shudder at having AB back as OC for next season, though.

Aside to ALL posters: recruits and potential recruits read these posts so some of you may not be helping Michigan's cause. Perfect example is JP.

How different could/would our program be if any of these events played out differently???

There are a bunch of what ifs that seem small, but I think would have drastically changed the course of our program. For instance, where would this team be if we had a competent QB in 2008...be that Antonio Bass being healthy, Jason Forcier not transferring, or landing Terrell Pryor?
 
What if RR said no? Who was our plan E (assuming Miles was A, Schiano was B, Ferentz was C, and RR was D)? I am guessing probably Ron English. 
 
What if Plans B or C went through? Does Schiano or Ferentz still have a job today? Or are we still looking for a "Michigan Man" in 2011?

Harbaugh is a huge tool and but obviously he'd be the guy to have right now.  Miles was questionable and not particularly well liked by many at Michigan but I'd take him too.  Hoke is the B list and can't even be uttered in the same breath as these two.  Just wriiting his name in the same post is difficult.

Ok, allow me to rephrase.  He's arrogant, stand-offish, glib, a total buffoon at times, says stupid sh**, lacks class, self-adulating and self-promoting, and pops off about Michigan, the school that gave him everything.  (What he said was actually fairly accurate but the problem I have is the motivation behind it.  It was typical Harbaugh: sanctimonious chest puffing arrogance with no filter designed to put him above someone or something.)  Sooo..add it all up and what do you get?  A tool.  Not saying I wouldn't take him as our coach but I don't think any of his peers would consider him a great guy but hey, you don't have to be popular to win.  I'd prefer his brother's mentality and character but at this point I'd kill for either one of them.

So, it's okay to ask a dumb question and then play the victim when called out on your dumb question? You're better than that. Come on.

I'm sure Harbaugh can't wait to get up in the morning, enjoy his cup of coffee while logging onto MGoBlog, Rivals, UMGoBlue, etc to read about himself and decide what he should do next with his life.

Finally, your post belittles fans on this board so you're instigating what you say other posters will do next. Oh the irony...keep playing the victim because you do it so well here.

How can you even believe the crap you write? Peppers wavering has nothing to do with what's written on this message board or any other and has everything to do with the horsesh*t product Michigan has put on the field and the fantasy that has turned out to be BS.

I would love nothing more than to eat a lot of words. Once, just once I would like our HC and coaches make me eat crow. None of us want to see Michigan fail but I don't have my head buried in the sand either so lets call a spade a spade.

I didn't vote for our president but that doesn't mean I want to see him fail because if he does, so do we. Same thing here. No one wants to see Hoke and Michigan fail because if that happens it means we have to start over again and we're all miserable. No one wants that.

Go Blue!!

After Carr I had no clue who I wanted to be the next HC, but the name I kept coming back to was Les Miles. Harbaugh wasn't even close to a hot commodity at that point in time so I am not surprised that his name didn't pop up much. Now when RR was let go, that was a whole different ballgame. Harbaugh was the hottest coach on the market, and he supposedly wanted this job badly. We blew it, and Les Miles wasn't really even an option the second go around, however anyone is an option if you throw enough money their way. Frankly, I was pissed when Hoke was hired. I thought he was second tier, maybe even third tier.

Hoke turned a lot of heads at his opening presser, his recruiting was hot right out of the gate, and he had a great first season. We have struggled the last two and the fan base is getting restless, that is no surprise. I still think Hoke can right this ship and be a very successful coach at Michigan. Despite that, it is hard for me to put aside the "what ifs." What if RR had taken the Bama job the year before accepting Michigan's job? What if we hadn't botched the Les Miles deal when Carr stepped down? And what if the prodigal son had actually come home to Michigan after the three year RR debacle? How different could/would our program be if any of these events played out differently???


This is well said...I'm not sure I knew who I wanted either but I do know I didn't want it to turn into a sh*t show and that's what happened.

Go Blue!!

If my posts are all crap, we are still 7-5 and I do believe Peppers is back in the fold.  Is that not correct.  He was upset with the possibility of Hoke leaving or am I living still in fantasy?  Whet, then, changed his mind again??
 
I guess I'm too old to keep up with all you young guys so maybe you will appreciate it if I just read the psts and stop posting.........there I go again.......playing the victim.
 
SDB - you have always been the guy I enjoy reading but lately your bashing of Hoke, etc. seems to me a little over the top.  Of course I lived through the Bennie Oosterbaan and Bumps Elliot eras so I remember what really crappy football was like.  Maybe we are all a little spoiled since Bo took over..............

Aside to ALL posters: recruits and potential recruits read these posts so some of you may not be helping Michigan's cause. Perfect example is JP.


How can you even believe the crap you write? Peppers wavering has nothing to do with what's written on this message board or any other and has everything to do with the horsesh*t product Michigan has put on the field and the fantasy that has turned out to be BS.

Go Blue!!

TK - Sorry, I was referring to Hoke. I misunderstood you.

 
Ha ha!  No worries.
