Was at a wedding for the double OT PSU game. Most of the reception was spent huddled around the TV watching the game
What has he done?
As I've already stated, he won 10 games in consecutive seasons (with recruits that Brady Hoke couldn't lead to a .500 season), something only 12 teams in the FBS were able to do. That stat alone makes him better than mediocre.
And again, I have not once argued he's lived up to Michigan expectations. But mediocre implies sub-par, which 20-6 and two top 15 finishes is not, no matter how hard you try and convince yourself.
The goal line stand in the Natty against Oregon was a pretty big momentum shift in our favor
In regards to 2 and 3, in 2014 (Conley) and 2015 (Lattimore) our Nickel corner got lit up several times during the year, and both ended up as first round draft picks. Here's to hoping a similar leap is made for Arnette and that Sheffield lives up to his 5 star billing. If not, Okudah and Wade better be ready to step in.
They lost to the second best team in the ACC by 1 point with their best offensive weapon getting hurt and their best overall athlete sitting out... talk about a WAXING right?
They beat the second best Pac 12 team by 2 touchdowns, but yeah Colorado sure waxed them!!!
They beat the B1G champion by 39 points, and a top 10 Wisconsin team along the way as well.
And if you want to go back to 2015, they beat the ever living shit out of one of those SEC teams you claim would WAX them in their 41-7 dismantling of Florida.
Look, I'm not saying Harbaugh and Michigan are among the elite of college football up there with OSU, Bama, Clemson, etc. But to discount what Harbaugh has accomplished as "mediocre" is using some seriously scarlet tinted glasses
This one I'm fine with, I find a lot of his antics pathetic lol
The people who hired him gave him a 3 million dollar raise after his first season, so I'm gonna guess they don't see him as mediocre. Again, Michigan has performed at a level higher than 90% of teams in college football over the past two years. I love to poke fun of them just as much as the next guy but to call Michigan a mediocre team is simply an ignorant statement. Indiana is mediocre. Texas Tech is mediocre. A team with consecutive 10 win seasons is not mediocre by any metric, regardless of the expectations of the fans.
There are about a dozen teams that have won 10 games each of the past 2 seasons. If you think being top 12 out of 128 schools is mediocre, I'm not sure what to tell you. Is he failing to meet National Title expectations? Sure. But mediocre is the wrong word.
of only moderate quality; not very good.
Perpetual 10-3 teams is over the "mediocrity" hump, I think he's look for the edge to get him from competing for Big Ten East titles to competing for National Championships. We can knock on Harbaugh all we want for his antics, but to call him a mediocre coach is a step far. Brady Hoke was medicore, and Harbaugh took a team full of his players and went 10-3 (twice).
If by "creeping" you mean establishing a relationship with those closest to Ruckert that was 100% reciprocated by the people in question... that's called recruiting bud.
Not to mention, can you accuse ANYBODY of being a creep when Harbaugh is sleeping over at 17 year old boys houses?
I'll get the marbles
I agree, this was just a prediction and not what I feel should actually happen. My ideal, fully healthy lineup against a right handed pitcher:
In my opinion the lineup until Brantley comes back will be:
When Brantley returns, we'll see a heavy rotation in the OF between Brantly, Bruce, Zimmer, Jackson, Guyer, Almonte, and eventually Chisenhall depending on pitching matchups
Yep, I pray to god we don't see an OR at right guard on the first depth chart released
Yep, even a 12 month recovery still puts Babb back to full speed for fall camp. Barring nerve damage a la Jaylon Smith, I don't see Urban backing off at all.
2014 Sugar Bowl against Bama. We had about 15 people at my house on campus and the alcohol was flowing like water. When Zeke got to about the 50 on the 85 yard run through the heart of the south, I turned, found the nearest person, and form tackled him into the coffee table knocking over ~2 dozen empty beer cans, a few partially full ones, and my friend I tackled landed ass-first into the skyline dip we had made for the game.
He wasn't remotely mad. Changed pants and we headed out for the bars chanting "We're going to the ship!" over and over again.
Trevon Grimes, top WR recruit on our board last year, tore his ACL in October I believe, and that injury is anywhere from 6 to 12 month recovery depending on severity yet he was still a take. So if Babb is truly the staff's top target at WR, unless the injury is career threatening he is still a take IMO
Your claim is still not true. That article, if read in full (as pointed out by other posters) clearly points to INJURY being the reason he has played multiple quarterbacks (sans 2013). You spin everything to fit your narrative, and the moment you are proven wrong (see QB stats from his last 4 years at IU, have yet to see you dispute those) you pull a bullshit out of context quote to try and spin it again.
Show me any example (again, outside of 2013) where Wilson rotated quarterbacks on a regular basis. I already showed you numbers showing he didn't, your turn to use definitive proof. Not an out of context quote.
1. You realize that quote literally proves my point right? The days of splitting time are gone? As in, for the last 4 years of his time at IU, he didn't split reps at QB
2. The 2 random quotes you found on google don't change the fact that I literally just showed you, using cold hard numbers, that he basically never had a 2 QB system at IU (or OU, if you look at those numbers). You always shove stats down peoples throats, what's your explanation for those then?
2016 at Indiana: RIchard Lagow 253/438 3362 yards, Zander Diamont 10/16 147 yards 1 TD
2015 at Indiana: Nate Sudfeld 247/412 3573 yards 27 TDs, Zander Diamont 15/31 166 yards
2014 at Indiana: Nate Sudfeld 101/167 1151 yards 6 TD , Zander Diamont 64/133 515 yards (only started playing regular minutes when Sudfeld injured his shoulder and missed the remainder of the season)
2013 at Indiana: Nate Sudfeld 194/322 2523 yards 21 TD, Tre Roberson 83/138 1128 yards 15 TDs (broke his leg early in the season, missed remainder of season)
I can keep going if you'd like. But Kevin Wilson most certainly does not rotate quarterbacks barring injury
Edit: And just to clarify, the numbers tell the same story during his time as OC at OU. You just flat out made up that Kevin Wilson rotates his quarterbacks in an effort to prove your point. And you wonder why most of the board is tired of your posts.
JT against Clemson: 19/33 (57.5%) 127 yards, 2 INT 77.8 passer rating
Troy Smith vs Florida: 4/14 (28.6%) 35 yards, 1 INT 35.3 passer rating
Yes. It can get worse. Unless you're saying there is no conceivable way that either Burrow or Haskins are worse than Heisman trophy winning quarterback Troy Smith.
Just curious... but what's your rationale on that? He rushed for 1100 yards while giving up carries to JT and Samuel. If he stays healthy all season I would say 1200 is his floor, not his ceiling.
Then there's the vast majority of us, who really don't give a damn who plays QB as long as OSU wins. We're just tired of hearing you make the same point over and over again using whatever stats fit the point you're pushing. (JT sucks, Cardale is God's gift to QBs, Joe Burrow is a much better QB than JT, etc.)
This is where I start my "JT is a better baseball player than Tim Tebow" argument... right?
