  1. it's fair to say michigan hasn't had recent highly drafted QBs. although every QB who started for michigan during the mueller-carr era did play in the nfl (grbac, todd collins, griese, brady, henson, navarre, and henne, plus ryan mallet who transferred out). once rich rod came in he switched scheme and recruiting took a looooong time to recover. it's fair to criticize harbaugh for not recruiting/developing nfl caliber QBs at michigan (ruddock and patterson were both transfers into the program and the "best" nfl prospects he's developed at michigan). jj mccarthy is now coming in, but ob
  2. well they did win a national title with griese in 97 when brady was a sophomore. griese moved to the pros and then super prospect drew henson came on campus and starting getting some reps. brady was the clear starter in 98 & 99 but henson did get some work in. brady had a very fine college career but didn't put up wow stats and i'm guessing didn't ace the physical stuff at the combine
  3. i understand. but where one is drafted does not equate to being a great QB
  4. do you actually need to put in a request to interview a college coach? i assumed putting in formal requests only applied to someone on another nfl teams' coaching staff
  5. so instead of wanting a proven successful nfl head coach, you'd rather a guy with 1 year's coaching experience in the nfl, 3 years total coordinator experience and pair him with an unsuccessful former head coach as a coordinator?
  6. so you don't want another parcells and don't want harbaugh. who exactly do you want?
  7. many bad teams remain bad. see the jags, lions, browns (finally made the playoffs this year), and yes, the jets of late. so no, you cant just say he benefitted from prior draft picks. look at the niners draft history in the few years before harbaugh joined. not exactly a lot of home run picks https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/sfo/draft.htm if you don't want harbaugh for the jets, that's fine. but it is silly to play down the tremendous success he had as a head coach in the nfl. .690 winning percentage for a franchise that hadn't made the playoffs or had a win
  8. i'm not sure i agree with using most of our resources (draft picks and FA $) on just the offense. and while this looks nice on paper, i'm not sure fields (or lawrence, or wilson) will have much success without someone lining up at RT
  9. stacked 49ers team? the niners record in the years before harbaugh took over: 6-10, 8-8, 7-9, 5-11, 7-9, 4-12, 2-14, 7-9 you have to go back 8 years to mariucci's last season to find a winning record and playoff appearance. harbaugh shows up and they go 13-3, 11-4-1, 12-4, making 3 straight nfl title games. if you want to criticize his lack of success against o$u and other ranked teams at michigan, it's a fair criticism. but let's not diminish how successful he was as an nfl head coach.
  10. sneak around and interview guys? you really think they could have been out there interviewing daboll and other coordinator candidates on the down low? yeah, that would go over well in the nfl...
  11. the problem didn't originate with harbaugh. after carr retired, michigan went with rich rod and then hoke while ohio state built a powerhouse under tressel, meyer and now day. despite all the criticism harbaugh takes (some deserved), he still has a .700 winning percentage at michigan including this year's shyte-storm of a season. rich rod was .405 and hoke was .608 (and his teams got progressively worse from 11-2 his first year to 5-7 his last), so it wasn't like harbaugh was taking over bo's michigan legacy (or even carr's).
  12. i'm sure to some degree, it happens everywhere. i won't pretend michigan (or anyone) is clean as snow. but there are degrees of what is allowed to happen and who you can recruit and who your respective admissions department will accept, etc. so yeah, i stand by my assertion that in this day and age, michigan and ohio state (for example) aren't playing on a level playing field. some call it a self inflicted wound, and that may be correct. but it does exist. now ohio state's recruiting and their coaching are excellent. i don't mean to take away from their successes. but there are
  13. his best QB recruit (jj mccarthy) will be hitting campus this month. but yes, it is a valid question why he hasn't been able to recruit and develop a top QB yet. he inherited a crappy QB room and hasn't seen any of his QB recruits develop as hoped. there are a myriad of reasons why, but it's still a strike against him. offsetting that of course is his success in the pros. as to not winning a national title or even a conference title, it is a strike against him. but not all teams play by the same rules. for example, at michigan, players actually have to do stuff like go to class and
  14. I am a Michigan alum, and while by no means an insider, I have been a long time subscriber to the former scout- and now 247- board, so I read all the "insider" news there. With that intro, I find it hard to believe that Harbaugh would be using the Jets as leverage in his negotiations with Michigan. There are many powerful donors/backers of the football program who would be happy to see Jim go (and have made such views known to the AD), so I don't think the hold up on his contract is over extracting the final dollar on a contract. i it is possible harbaugh is waiting to see what, if any
