i agree in part with what you're saying. i think the situation at michigan's a little better than the one at florida right now. and the situation's better at osu than almost anywhere in the country. it's obvious most osu fans couldn't even fathom someone not being interested in osu to that extent. that's bias for you. every school and fanbase has it. but to say that harbaugh and the coaching staff he has assembled isn't a good place to develop talent? come on. they haven't proven anything on the field, but most of their coaching staff has had success in many different situations at different schools. and harbaugh may seem like a nutcase (he does to an extent to michigan fans as well), his eccentricities are tolerated because he can coach.
the other thing people jump on is the whole andrew luck thing. yes, luck is a once in a generation talent. potentially poised to be the next payton manning, etc. in 2008, he was the #3 ranked pro style QB recruit. ranked ahead of him were blaine gabbert and dayne crist. in the 2009 class, tajh boyd, garrett gilbert, and matt barkley held higher 247 composite rankings. in 2010, phillip sims. in 2012, gunner kiel. in 2013, max browne and christian hackenberg. and looking before him to see some in the NFL, the 2007 class had jimmy clausen, ryan mallet, aaron corp, and john brantley. 2006 had matt stafford and mitch mustain. that's not including any potential dual threat QB's ranked higher. some are too young to make conclusions on, but could it be possible that harbaugh is part of the reason andrew luck became andrew luck?
all are good schools, all have historically good football teams, with osu being great currently and expected to be going forward. it seems silly, though, to think that neither michigan nor florida will deviate more towards their norm, that being competitive at a national level. with meyer at the helm for osu, there isn't cause for worry, because he'll keep winning and getting good recruits, but to completely dismiss harbaugh is a little premature
