Thats the question...if Michigan's guys turn into something like the list you posted, then they'll say it's all Harbaugh - and probably rightfully so, based on the results we've seen.
Conversely, if those same guys never amount to squat, then Harbaugh will be excused and they'll say Jimbo didnt recruit those guys and Hoke left the cupboard bare. What I was doing in the first post above is pointing out that the Michigan folks are admitting that Hoke recruited well...just saying to make a note of it for when they start losing and see where the excuses/spin takes it. I think they are going to be stubborn about admitting Jim Harbaugh is not the #1 coach in the history of the universe.
Also, I'm not talking about who had more or less in that cupboard...but for the record, we had no excuses. It was implementing a new system on offense and defense. We still won, despite growing pains, and also produced with very young players at key positions mixed with some older leadership. And with reduced scholarships.
