I can smell football... My god it's so close!

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

I know he will probably always wear that stupid ball cap and that's one of his things - whatever - but I will always think of him as a kidult for doing stupid stuff like that. 

You don't know what you have until it's gone .... for example, toilet paper.

Harbaugh has become the definition of "man child." We get it, you are so wacky and quirky and play by your own rules. With that being said, you are a gigantic dbag and if Michigan continues to lose 2-3 games a year the love affair with his fan base will evaporate.

I just thought he needed to let everyone know that he is the scUM head coach because, let's face it, they have been pretty irrelevant over the past 5-6 years.

Anyone else notice that Hairball is the only moron who doesn't know you should remove your hat while indoors and especially so when taking a photo?

You WIN with people.

Harbaugh wears the hat to keep the foreskin from going all the way over his head. I call it a jimmy for Jimmy.

This is a good theory and one I'm going to adopt.

Yep, Kevin Wilson was the give-away...now he's on our team!

Ohio State's offense will be very special. Penn State will be very good, but they will get hammered in Columbus. Fleck will be an all star hire for Minnesota. Dantonio will mumble something. JT is honing his game with Zone 6.

I agree with you on the PSU game.  I think this turns into a BLOW OUT.  Ohio State will be ready, it's a night game, and Wilson will have this offense fine-tuned and geared up for this game.  I am calling it 45-24, Buckeyes.  And that final PSU score comes late in the game.

"Brohm was hired from Western Kentucky to try and revitalize a Purdue program that's struggled — that might be kind — in recent years."

Predicting it now. Once Brohm gets his system in place Purdue will get back to being a decent team. That QB named Sipe will fit perfectly into what he is trying to build there in West Lafayette.

Sipe as in former NFL QB's son?

HS
Icouldnotgofor3's picture

Indeed....all in the family. No one is paying attention to their recruiting but Brohm is a really good coach. That Sipe kid is going to be slinging that ball all over the field once he gets settled in.

Is there some kind of hype or propaganda that is supposed to be gained by always wearing that stupid hat all the time??  I mean, look at how stupid that looks. I must be missing something.

Yes.  Branding.

The guy is scratching and clawing to keep the Michigan brand relevant without results on the field.  So far, he's done really well at that.

He also hides his inflatable mattress under that hat in case he has a random sleepover pop up.

Aside from the problems in East Lansing, the conference is looking prime for a very good season - should be an excellent week.

I'm not counting Sparty out. Dantonio is the master of using "everyone doubts us" for motivation.

They won't finish 3-9 again, but hoping Ohio State has a better showing against them this year.

This game worries me.  It seems that the visiting team has won more games over the past 10-12 years in this one.  Sparty will be over-matched and out-talented, but like you said, NEVER count Dantonio out.

Dino is in store for a much deserved beat down on the field this year. They've been a thorn for too long.

I certainly hope so, and on paper, we definitely will have the personnel and coaches to do it, but Dantonio has a way of keeping his team in this game.

As much as I want to say we blow them out something like 49-24, I am not sure.

I'm so glad Jimmy wore his ball cap so we could tell who is the coach of TTUN... yeesh, what a tool....

Aide from Harbaugh and his stupid hat, I noticed one other odd thing about that picture. Chris Ash has a really small head.

Just had to get that out of my head and into text, haha.

Who's the dude on the other side of Franklin from that hat assassin? He looks like some dude that just jumped into the picture.

Ahh.  Last years photo.  That explains why Fleck isn't there holding a toy rowboat. Or some shit.

Last year's photo, although I'll wager Side Show Jim wears the hat again. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

I couldn't play for PJ Fleck, he seems like a self help guru who decided to coach football for a little while. I understand that he has won games but unless that was my only option coming out of high school I would pass.

Nailed it.

Although, I may be still annoyed from all the BS they were showing him spew in the locker room when WMU played here.

Harbaugh is trying SO HARD to be iconic. The horn-rimmed glasses, the milk, the hat. The sleeping over with recruits, etc. etc. etc. But, that shtick only works if he creates a dynasty. To do that, he needs to finish, at least, higher than 3rd in the Big Ten East.  Just saying.

“I’m so tired of flexing.”

HS
THE's picture

They're still giving him a pass up north.  However, all those Hoke players they himmed and hawed about in recruiting that they're now blaming for lack of titles are soon phasing out.  It's the same they said about RichRod, same they said about Hoke, same for Harbaugh.

He'll need to produce or those gimmicks will get old FAST.

Really like the fact that the group shot of all the BIG coaches has everyone looking like adults, except for the big kid in the back, who felt it would be prudent to wear a baseball cap to the photo shoot ..... What a frickin' tool !!!!

This man SCREAMS for attention, as if his mommy didn't give him enough when he was a kid ..... Not iconic - more like moronic ....

Is it just me or does ONE of these coaches look bat-crap crazy?  Hint:  he's in his mid-50's, gets paid as well as any coach in the country and has never one an important championship game in his entire career....

O-H
