Haskins hasn't officially announced his intentions, and probably won't until after the Rose Bowl, but it's a safe bet he's headed to the league, no matter how much hope you'd like to have.

An 8 figure lump sum up front will do that to you. I can't blame him 

My commitment to Michigan is 100 percent,” Johnson added. “There are always factors that will change, but that’s the place where I want to be.

He wants one of those sweet 0-4 jerseys.

How much you wanna bet Mrs. Harbaugh is getting a jump on Christmas 2019 and knitting an 0-5 sweater for Jim right now?

He'll get an 8 figure lump sum next year too.  It really depends if he's interested in the rest of his career or signing bonus more.

I think he can be Dan Marino and Jim Kelly good with more practice and game experience at Ohio State.

Kevin, it was very rude of you not to credit Harbaugh for his 2016 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl win

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

Actually...

I've made some heinous mistakes online – hell, there might even be one in this very Skully, y'all will have to tell me

Imagine the Savior of Michigan Football ducking out of Ann Arbor after four years without a Big Ten title, a win against Ohio State or even a bowl win

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, especially when it means defending anything Michigan, but TTUN trounced Florida 41-7, in the Citrus Bowl in Harbaugh’s first season. This year’s bowl will be the third time they’ve played Florida in his four years, twice in bowl games. They’re going for 3-0, which would put the Gators in the stellar company of Indiana, Maryland and Rutgers as teams Harbaugh’s beaten at least three times without any losses.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

HS
Dillon G's picture

If TTUN manages a win, Florida will move up in the rankings for a quality loss, and all Big Ten teams will drop because Michigan didn’t win by enough

Rutgers and UMD both beat Michigan their first year in the B1G (2014), which was also Brady Hoke's last year as head coach. I'm pretty sure Harbaugh's beaten them both four times.

Imagine the level of asshole Harbaugh would be to assure all the kids coming to UM this year that he’s sticking around then he just up and leaves... what a creep

It’s business.  Remember our situation with Weber? 

HS
Extramedium's picture

I don't think he promised anyone he'd be around, it was just assumed.  And then he was replaced with another great position coach, it wasn't like Bill Davis stepped in.

HS
Bucks19's picture

Yes it was assumed but taking the job right after signing date when the NFL regular season was over for a month? Cmon. 

HS
Zimmy07's picture

I’m not even a Bills fan and I cringed about the comment after that free throw.  I think there was a UCLA free throw that they showed being taken with the camera behind the backboard.  You could tell it was badly off almost as soon as it left his hands - but at least he hit the rim.

No amount of money will lure Hairball away from ttun.  Just like Winovich and and a bug light to a bug, he won’t leave ttun until beating the good guys.  It’s his Cooper-Achilles.

HS
Bucks19's picture

Totally untrue. Give him a say in personnel and he’s GONE. That’s why he led the NFL in the first place 

HS
Extramedium's picture

I agree it won't be about the money, but he'd definitely leave if given the right circumstances.  Why any team would want him is beyond me.

HS
Canukbuck's picture

If Hairball leaves, who's going to hold the player's hands when they go off on another one of Coach Harbaugh's European vacations ??  Who'll sleep on the bedroom floors of potential recruits ??  Who'll climb trees and drink the gallons of milk that has proved such an attraction to the best athletes in the country ??  Who the hell is going to turn them all into Michigan Men ???

.... and who's going to utter those immortal words, "WHO'S GOT IT BETTER THAN US ???"

With Albino Jim gone, how can we guarantee a win in The Game so easily any more ???

No, Jimbo, you need to stay right where you are - where else can you expect to get paid a bunch of money and fail to deliver on promises, other than a TV weather man ??  Give the Buckeye Nation the gift that keeps on giving - just stay put !!!!

Charging stations at stores. I am sure that I have seen them, but I guess I don't use my phone enough to keep running out of power to need a station while out shopping. Whatever works I guess. 

How about the roundball fellas hammering UCLA the other day? I like it. This team may be ok :)

Wishing there were bowl games today, but no such luck. A wonderful Christmas Eve to all 11W writers and readers. Go Bucks

Really how can some pro basketball players be so bad at free throws. For a million bucks you better believe I would train hard enough to make 90%. Now for the rest of the game......

Maybe 11W could start a new fund.  It's Chrismas, the time of giving and all!  

Raise money to help keep the coach where he is needed, up north.  See, another Christmas tie!  (North.)

And as most already believe, it will be another Christmas gift that keeps on giving.  Not sure about the dufouses up there, but I sure will be sad if he leaves!  And that sucks, because this is the season to be happy.

Oh well, I guess Buckeye fans already have so much to be happy about, I should not be so greedy!!!

Merry Christmas to all, Happy Holidays to all, and also a Most Happy, Healthy, and Win filled New Years to all.

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

Aside from winning, Schadenfreude is the best... especially when it comes to scUM. I recall attending the 99 game and hearing scUM fans cheer when John Cooper’s name was announced. We all know exactly how they felt! :>)

Loved watching this video at the front of the Skully. There were bad calls he picked up on against OSU that I hadn’t even realized how egregious they were. Don’t know if anyone remembers Big Chuck and Little John Who we’re highlighted at the end. I grew up watching them. Once saw Little John walking around downtown Cleveland during Christmas.

Thanks for the video Christmas gift Kevin !

Listening to 38+ min.'s of that life long *ichigan fan's "salty-tears" was fabulous !

At the end Urban was asked, "your 7 for 7 against this team, how do ya do it ?"

Not sure I agree with Harrison's assessment especially against Maryland but I will hope that as a senior he can become solid and consistent.  

On the topic of next year's team, even if Jordan and Fuller bolt this team is loaded, but I will have a hard time watching Borland and Werner play 90% of meaningful snaps.  You have to think a change at position coach would not only improve the coaching but also shake up the pecking order.

You know neither Borland nor Werner are leaving early, I can't even imagine Browning never being a full time starter and Mitchell waiting until his senior year to get a shot.

Malik Harrison most likely staying is very good news . . . now hope that Jordan Fuller makes the same decision.  Two key, experienced and talented players back to help improve the defense next year would be most welcome. Now, as to the defensive coaching staff . . .

And Go Bucks, beat the Huskies!

You're off to a pretty good start, Kevin. We here at 11W support you. When can we vote online for you?

From the Dogs > Cats archive, a little Christmas humor for you all:
Christmas Request

A little girl was in the kitchen watching her mother prepare for the following day's Christmas dinner.

She asked, "Mommy, can I please have a cat for Christmas?"

Her mommy replied, "No, you'll have turkey like the rest of us."

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Far from heinous, and only because you asked, Kevin.

And like, who the hell else is are they going to get?

Thank you for that video this morning. I literally snorted and almost choked on my coffee when Michigan Man said "When you play a team that can hold their water at the line of scrimmage, in pass pro, and you give a decent quarterback time to find his receiver...", and Haskins drops a 40 yard dime to a wide open Johny Dixon in the south endzone.  Whoever put that together did an excellent job.

I could not believe that a professional player could shoot a free throw that poorly, so I picked up my basketball for the first time in roughly twenty-five years, refilled it with air and walked over to the neighborhood court. (I used to be an 85 to 90% shooter at the stripe.)After missing five of the first ten shots, I found my stroke, and wound up hitting 73 out of 100, in 28 degree weather, and having to retrieve the ball after every toss. It's just caring enough to PRACTICE, Kosta!

Second time through that Michigan Man video.  Never gets old.

I know it wasn't a replay of every down in that wonderfully, fabulous game.  However, I counted the number of times ttun threw the ball on first down.  Seven times (three times in the 4Q).  First and second down, bring the other TE in motion and run left tackle or right tackle.  It seemed they ran that same play all game long.  Seven first down passes resulted in sack, incomplete, incomplete, incomplete (Sheffield phantom PI call), scramble (yard gain), incomplete, sack (Cooper phantom face mask call).  Please, please Jimmie tell the Jets to go pound sand.

This was in the N.Y. Post today:

"Jim Harbaugh has denied he will leave Michigan after this season. The Jets insist they are not interested in Jim Harbaugh.

Those are some hurdles to the Jets landing Jim Harbaugh."

At least we know now 0-4, will be the next 0-5.
