3/25/15: While it seems that Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has moved on from the San Francisco 49ers, the 49ers seem to still want to take shots at Harbaugh. CEO Jed York said that the 49ers 'got away from core strengths' under Harbaugh. They must have with only three NFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl appearance in four years. Michigan is glad to have him. Michigan looks to make big gains in the next few years as Harbaugh worked his magic and gets the program back to the top of the NCAA ranks. Where it should be.
3/18/15: The Michigan Wolverines received some jolting news last week when starting center Jack Miller announced that he would not play in 2015. Miller decided to leave the program, and the decision seems to have come out of nowhere. Miller is a fifth year senior and started all 12 games last season and likely would have had the job again this coming season. Now it looks like redshirt sophomore Patrick Kugler will be the anchor on the offensive line. Whether he is done with football or not is still in speculation, though there is no word that he is transferring to another program or is just ending his playing career.
3/11/15: It may not be long before Jim Harbaugh replaces the old guy on the beer commercials as the Most Interesting Man in the World. Look at his life. He was a star quarterback at national powerhouse in college. Earned the nickname Captain Comeback while playing in the NFL. Led two downtrodden college teams to prominence as a head coach. Was an NFL head coach and coached against his brother in the Super Bowl. Named head coach of his college alma mater. Sat in on Judge Judy's court room. Was a first responder in an emergency. And last week served as the Oakland A's first base coach for a day. Yet most people get excited for casual Fridays.
3/4/14: Since the Jim Harbaugh honeymoon is still in its infancy, every 'first' gets overly documented and lauded. It is actually similar to a first-born child in that regard. Of course the pictures and scrapbooking fade away by the time kids two, three, four or more come around. So this is Harbaugh's first spring practice, which Harbaugh compared to joyous holidays. Harbaugh seems very excited to get going with the practice and Wolverine fans everywhere are excited to see him turn around a once-glorious franchise that has fallen into dark times over the past decade or so.
2/25/15: It is pretty high praise when a Heisman winning quarterback from a National Championship team who is likely to be the first overall pick in the NFL draft lauds your coach and facilities. But Jameis Winston from Florida State did just that. He was up at the UM football facilities prior to the NFL Combine to train under new head coach Jim Harbaugh. Winston said he wished he could have played for Harbaugh and said the facilities were outstanding and better than what he had at FSU. With the coach and facilities in place, it should not be too long before Big Blue starts winning meaningful games.
2/18/15: The Jim Harbaugh Era at Michigan is off to a great start. Maybe not in the recruiting department yet, but at least in terms of entertainment. Harbaugh seemed to have trolled Ohio State by tweeting out the famous 'tangled web/deceive' quote by Sir Walter Scott (no, not William Shakespeare. Ok, English Lit lesson finished for today.). He then played coy about it, though OSU responded. He has also enlightened his followers about pop music and country-style breakfasts. He is turning into an enjoyable character, which is in stark contrast to Urban Meyer and Nick Saban, may have never heard of the word 'fun'.
2/11/15: The University of Michigan did not end up with an all-star recruiting class that will win them the national championship in a couple of years. That is very understandable considering that the program has been down for a few years and new head coach Jim Harbaugh (and his staff) came in very late in the recruiting process. But they did land a potentially big fish in quarterback John O'Korn. O'Korn had been a QB at Houston. He was the AAC Rookie of the Year in 2013. He will have to sit out a year, but this is a good foundation on which to build a program.
2/4/15: National Signing Day will be finished soon and all the rankings will be tallied up shortly thereafter. The question will be how did Michigan do this season. Everyone is well aware of Big Blue's troubles on the field, and that is why Brady Hoke is out and Jim Harbaugh is in. Recruiting is the life-blood of college football and it is generally the top ranked recruiting classes that end up in top ranked bowls. Michigan got a late start to recruiting this year and may not turn in the type of class that fans want. At the end of January, Michigan ranked 76th. But they can always close strong.
1/28/15: Jim Harbaugh finally got his first recruiting commitment, and it is a big one. Harbaugh and his staff have flipped four star quarterback Zach Gentry from the University of Texas to Michigan. Gentry is listed at 6'6" and 230 pounds. He is a pro-style QB and the top prospect out of New Mexico. Overall, recruitment this season looks to be a little light and the Wolverines only have eight commitments so far. However, there is still a few more days until National Signing Day and Michigan will try to finish up Harbaugh's first class on a strong note.
1/21/15: It is a brand new era for Michigan football, one that alumni and fans resembles the glory days of years past. As everyone knows, Michigan ended the Brady Hoke experiment (a second unsuccessful coaching run for the program) after the end of the 2014 season. They then were able to hire former Wolverines standout Jim Harbaugh to lead the program. Harbaugh has been successful at both the college and NFL levels, and is expected to bring Michigan back to prominence. With UM back on track, it will be great to see the Ohio State rivalry be rebuilt over the next few years.
