Born on the banks (not literally) of the Mississippi River in Onalaska, WI (LaCrosse) in 1964. Raised on the banks of the Olentangy since 1968. Can almost hear Keith Jackson saying that last part in a way that only he can.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Buster Douglas knock out Mike Tyson on a giant rear projection tv in my parents house. Oh, and a little thing called the 2002 National Championship. That was stressful as hell, but worth the suffering.

This is the kind of video you make when you're seriously concerned about losing. Otherwise, why bother?

Does the Class of 2032 have any rankings yet?   

Comment 17 Dec 2014

He can make about the same money in the NFL and not have to spend all of that time recruiting. The longer this waiting game goes on, the less likely it is that he goes to TTUN. He is clearly fielding other very lucrative offers from several NFL teams, and may just feel bad flat out rejecting TTUN right away once again. It's not like it's his last shot or anything. TTUN will have another opening in 3-4 years. Maybe by then he'll have the NFL out of his system.

Excellent take on the situation up North. Lloyd Carr has his fingerprints on everything related to the football program, in ways that likely spelled the end of Rich Rod's tenure before it began. It will be interesting should Harbaugh take this job, how much Lloyd continues to try and assert himself going forward. I can't see that relationship working well at all unless Lloyd pulls back because he would finally have his "Michigan Man" in charge.

Harbaugh has coached exactly one college football team, so I'm not sure what you mean by "multiple". What is it that makes him dangerous? Sound exciting!  (EDIT: Oopsie...forgot about FCS San Diego).

The rumors are spreading like, well, wildfire as we speak!  Some radio guy in Pittsburgh says his UM contact told him this is "going to happen soon" and take a gander at the reported offer, 8 year for $49 million. Yes dollars. That my friends is 6.125 million per season that would put Jimmy behind only Nick Saban as the highest paid coach in college football. By the way, Urban Meyer is a distant sixth on the list of school pay at 4.486 Million. Here's the link:

Comment 15 Dec 2014

Jim Harbaugh has too much ego to take this job and walk away from the pro game. How can you expect a guy who has taken a pro team to a Super Bowl, to leave the NFL for a college team? Harbaugh along with Pete Carroll and Barry Switzer were rare examples of guys who took NFL teams to the playoffs after leaving the college ranks. That kind of transition usually fails, yet he was successful at it. Guys like Spurrier, Holtz and Saban took NFL jobs and failed. Sure Pete Carroll coached three years in New England before being fired and heading to USC, but he didn't have near the success of Jim Harbaugh during his first shot in the pros. Carroll was 27-21 in New England while Harbaugh to date is 43-18. Quite a difference.  Just don't see Harbaugh to TTUN anytime soon.

Well he does fit the criteria of what TTUN looks for. He was born in Ohio and is an assistant to another highly successful coach also born in Ohio. They clearly have visions of another Bo vs Woody rivalry.
