    I feel like Harbaugh would do better if he ditched the wired headset and joined the digital age. Kind of said seeing a wire man following him around all game. That's got to be hazardous to the rest of the staff and team! Lol

    It’s been four years. Harbaugh tends to wear out his welcome after three. So he’s overdue to be ran out of town.

    They were losing a few years before he got there and he has winning records since so no

    And again, you didn't read the OP. It's got nothing to do with win percentage. Brady Hoke had a winning record too. The point is, Harbaugh is paid more than double. And can't even compete with Ohio State, let alone win the conference.

    You're an idiot if you think 4 years is long enough to compete with Ohio State. PJ Fleck just got an extension because he's found success and the revolving door of coaching rarely works out.

    When a college pays a coach the third highest salary in the country, they’re making it clear they want quick results. The point isn’t he’s a bad coach. The point, once again, is that he’s paid to be a top coach but they’re still a ways from being a top team.

    Then that would make him a “failed experiment”.

    No, anyone with a brain would know its a long term process. It's not an experiment.

    Michigan pretending that they're entitled to being a national powerhouse is the failure. They win a lot more than they lose under Harbaugh. Expecting more is just Michigan blowing itself pretending it's 50 years ago when only a handful of teams were relevant.

    Neither is getting paid the $ he does to get destroyed by a Wisconsin team with only 9 blue chip players.

    Wisconsin has been relevant for the last 20 years. Michigan, not so much.

    Wisconsin has harder academic standards, so yeah. Wisconsin got Barry Alvarez and turned that whole program around. They also are a school who contends and makes the Sweet 16 in basketball.

    I kind of agree with this. Then again, there’s only a handful of coaches with name brand style notoriety. I think Michigan paid the extra money for that more than his ability to win. Michigan thought he could become the Bo.

    Remember when Jim Kelly called him out during their NFL days for pretending to be rattled during a game in the hopes of being called tough?

    They were a few bad plays from making the playoffs. Fucked punts and shit. That was in the first few years.


    There has been QB regression. Don't know why. Still a good coach in a cold place that kids no longer really want to play in.
