Ever been part of team (sports or at work) where someone was demoted & retained, subordinate promoted over their existing leader, passed over for a promotion, etc.  Far too many ways for things to get sideways and screw up your culture in those scenarios. 

Regardless of your personal opinion of Warriner vs. Stud the above is now part of the dynamic.  This is best for both sides.

Sounds like someone mixing up an old rumor from the Cooper era.

And give Weber the ball.  Yes, he fumbled but were down by 17.  Don't let him sit on thinking about that fumble

To me this all starts with the lack of respect for any deep threat - either receiver or QB.  This needs to be fixed next year if JT is back as the starter.

While I agree about brand I think he missed a real opportunity to grow his brand when Michigan was down.  For one reason or another, I think it is as simple as he doesn't make recruiting the priority that other programs do today.  Kentucky out recruited him....

I don't see him going on ESPN to announce he's leaving the state.  I think if he were committing to OSU it would be a smaller occassion, like a gathering with a couple dozen family and friends for a send-off dinner then jumping on a plane to Ohio.

Harbaugh is a notorious whiner about refs.  Here's his quote from a 41-8 win over Illinois this year:

"I've never seen a worse call," Harbaugh said. "I don't know that I've ever seen a more strange replay. Maybe there has been."

Mike Pereira also called this behavior when he was with San Francisco.

We’re halfway through the NFL season and I’m not sure which is more surprising, the fact that San Francisco is 7-1 or that the 49ers’ new coach, Jim Harbaugh, got more face time Sunday on FOX than Kim Kardashian gets in her reality show.

I’m not saying Harbaugh hasn’t done a great job, because he has. But he seems to protest more than those demonstrating in Occupy Wall Street.

The cameras found him on seemingly every penalty — and San Francisco was penalized nine times. I really can’t blame the director, because quite frankly, Harbaugh was good drama. Except, of course, for those who were officiating the game.

Peppers needs to do some research....

"Jim Kelly made some comments about me on a TV show in Buffalo. He basically said I was a baby, that I fake injuries," Harbaugh told Mitch Albom in 1997. "He said if he were still playing, he'd tell Buffalo players to hit me in the mouth and I'd get rattled."

"Well, [Kelly] was doing a game in San Diego, and I wanted to ask him where he was coming from with those comments," Harbaugh explained. "We went into a room and started talking about it. He said, 'I call it the way I see it.' One thing led to another. I hit him. I threw a couple of punches. Sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in."

After the punch, Harbaugh knew right away that something didn't feel right.

"I broke the bone while hitting him," Harbaugh said in 1997.

Urban & LJ will still be there.  Happens with success.  Good thing is they keep moving up and Urban will keep attracting top assistants to replace them.

Instead of bragging about wins pre-WWII, it sounds like UM fans should be bragging about building the Big Ten Network.

“This is a wild thing to say, but the reaction by every other network in the country to the Appalachian State win over Michigan — they all wanted to have a relationship with BTN to get the clips,” Delany told USA TODAY Sports. “That showed me something. … Everybody said, ‘The Big Ten Network has second-rate games.’ That was the biggest upset in college football history.
