UM fans are convinced they will get one of the Harbaughs--- They actually believe they have a better chance with John! The delusion is thick. Both Harbaugh bros have a lifetime pass to coach in the NFL, both are in line to make $7+ million a year and if Jim leaves SF you can bet he will get huge offers from NFL teams that will dwarf anything UM can offer.
Les Miles is somewhat more realistic but they've botched that hire as well. LSU to UM is a lateral move at best.
Until they get rid of the Pizza Boy Dave Brandon they won't be successful. This guy's claim to fame is as a henchman for Bain Capital building up Dominos then nearly destroying it. He ran Dominios with the idea that great marketing and mediocre products equal big profits. He has executed this scheme at UM perfectly.
UM has this obsession with hiring "michigan men" as AD and HC's. Their last two AD's have been former CEO types who have little sports management experience. The only glimmer of hope in Ann Arbor is a new president who may take a different tact than MSC did during her tenure. They fire Brandon, they stand a chance. If he hires the next coach it will be another disaster.
